Read that this place had good reviews so we ventured down to the cruise ship center (we weren't there for the cruise). Placed our order (there were two of us), and a table next to us of ten placed their orders after us and got their food first! That was a little annoying. Server did apologize though. We had the cracked conch-yum, jerked chicken-ok. Food was pretty good just don't think i would brave the cruise folks again-the rest of the island is so peaceful :)

Don't get caught up by the glam and commercialism of Margaritaville! This little gem is just down the beach and just what the doctor ordered.

Sit in the shade, sit in the sun, splash in the waves, climb the rock wall island, play some volleyball and/or just belly up to the bar. The cocktails are great and along with the beer are very reasonable. If you want to eat conch... stay away from the masked flavors of conch fritters and try the delicious cracked conch at Jack's. All the food we ordered was great but the conch really stood out especially when it seems like fritters are all you can get.

The staff was great and the owners are real people. Do yourself a favor and give yourself a time out at Jack's Shack.

Jack's is great, you want good food, amazing drinks and a die for ocean view then this is your place. Don't miss out, not a ton of people, plenty of chairs to lounge on. This is our place to spend the day.

After a morning at the beach my nephew explored the area on the scooter we rented, and found this gem, right on the beach, and close to the pier. We had wanted to try local conch and he found the perfect place. Jack's cooks up a fantastic fried conch, similar to calamari, but SO much better. 3 of us had plates full of conch of fried conch and french fries, and about 3 beers each, and the total came to $77 including our tip. One of the highlights of local cuisine during our 8 day cruise.

Don't waste your money at Margarita Ville and make the walk to Jack's Shack. Leroy cooks some mean Jerk Chicken and it's only $9.00, Grand Turk Lager beers for $4.00 by the pier they were $7.00. Nice place to relax and meet Tropher the local celebrity. Jack & Janet are nice down to earth people. You can't go wrong at Jack's!
