To start with I love the theme of the restaurant and how it's set out. This is great. The food wasn't too bad either, and the range of cocktails was brilliant. Unfortunately when one of your guests has a cheese allergy - orders nachos and asks if the nachos have cheese on and their response is 'we don't know -... More

Booked a table for a Sunday evening meal and was not disappointed. The restaurant not surprisingly has a pirate theme twist , the staff are warm and welcoming and very helpful. The menu is very extensive with lots of variety. We opted for burgers and were not dissociated. Well worth a visit.

Read the reviews here so thought we would try it. Few diners in when we arrived but seated quickly. Really good choice of dishes. I had Cajun salmon which was very tasty good size portion and with the rice and roasted vegetables very filling, hubby had Davy Jones burger, chips and salad and didn't manage the chips. Reasonably price and... More

We only intended to go into Calico Jacks for a drink and had booked a meal else where. After going in and seeing the food we cancelled our other reservation and stayed In Calicos for tea instead. All our food was excellent. Do not be put off by the plastic pirate outside as the inside isn't tacky at all the... More

Went a bit later than last time - less noisy with young children at around 8pm if you want a meal as a couple. Food was great - amazing steak! Our only quibble was that being next to the window was fairly cool.

We often call in here as it is a bargain. The early bird is extremely good value for money but the food on the whole is very reasonably priced but always tastes amazing. Clean, perfectly cooked and well looked after at a great price. Cannot fault the place!

Nowhere else in Skipton had customers but this place so in we went. Families, groups of young ladies, couples, this place caters for almost everyone. The food is excellent, the portions generous, service friendly and helpful. Two large drinks, starters and a main course so filling no room for desert or coffee cost £40.00 the lot. This was our 2nd... More

We stayed in Skipton on Tuesday 31st January and decided after having a walk around that we would dine at Calico Jack's. We were not disappointed. Tiger prawns on a skewer and BBQ Ribs were the starters followed by Ribeye Steak marinated with English mustard served with salad garnish, onion rings and potato wedges. Everything was faultless. As for desserts....we... More

Ate here last night and had the 14oz Ribeye steak. Up there with some of the best steaks I've ever had! I'd avoid the started though unless your starving as the portion sizes are big! Other half had the ribs and chicken combo which was also excellent! Had it with a large jug of Margharita which at £20 isn't cheap... More
