If you can try somewhere else, then go. This place is awful! We ordered for starters the Crabby Nachos, should be called crappy nachos. The "nachos" are an insult to the name. It had chilli on the bottom, it had BIG kidney beans, and on...More

Walking up and down Duval Street assailed by the raucous music blarring from most of the casual dining spots, this seemed like an oasis. Large, roomy dining room attached to the Crowne Plaza Hotel it looked promising. It wasn't!! Service was adequate and our server...More

Not sure why there was only 1 person working. Our server seemed very very nice but very clueless /confused. He tried hard but it was as if he were doing 3 different jobs. It was a strange place. The food was pretty good. But it...More

We were tired of heavy evening meals so we stopped in at Jack's and enjoyed fish dip and steamed shrimp. The service was good and the food tasty though simple. We've never tried anything else there.

We went to Jack's thinking we could eat on the top floor and see the sunset. Didn't know that only a bar and conference room are on the top. They could make a killing if they put a restaurant on the top. I usually only...More

Let me start by saying this place won't be around very long. We came with a party of 10-12 people last Friday night and brought our freshly caught Black Finn Tuna to have them prepare it. We were 1 of only 2 tables on a...More

I recently visited Key West and hear about Jack's from some locals. Our server Julie was great! She was very attentive and recommended the Mixed Grill. The lobster, scallops and shrimp were cooked perfect! I will be back to this restaurant on my next visit.
