We were visiting Dana Point, and decided to try Jack's.

Food: For what it's worth, the quality and portion of the food was realy good (filet mignon and orang roughy). We also ordered brownie a la mode - very good.
Service: Friendly and attentive.

One minor thing - we made reservation through open table, asked for a recognition since it was for a birthday (also a reason for ordering a dessert, so we can get a candle). Unfortunately, restaruant staff did not acknowledge that.

The food isn't inexpensive and the menu looks good. One of our dishes was good, the other not memorable at all, and seemed high priced for the level of the food. And my wife hated the ambience - it looked more like a local bar or tavern than a restaurant in the price range that it charged. It was also fairly noisy and boisterous, as one might expect at a bar setting. All in all, a disappointment to us, but perhaps we just expected more from reading other reviews. When we walked in (before we ate), my wife accused me of selecting a low end restaurant to save money and was surprised later when she saw the menu. That ought to give you a feel for the restaurant's feeling.

Jacks is a favorite go-to spot for our family. It gets high marks in every category-generous drinks, good wine list, fresh and tasty food from a varied menu, nice surroundings, and always good service. Reasonable prices too. Jacks is always busy but never chaotic. Jacks is a great asset for our town of Dana Point.

Right on the strip in downtown Dana Point. This is a really good, casual, higher end restaurant. Nice bar, good selection of wines and a great menu with fish, pasta, steaks, etc. Will be back here on next visit to Dana Point.
