“Riverside dining”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is definitely a place to eat outside.Even though there had been heat advisories earlier in the day, the deck was pleasant. Enjoyable river view, nice music (we were seated at the far end, so it was not too loud) and fun, gliding tables. We started with the 32 oz. special ($5) drinks - a mixture of several rums and juices for hubby and several vodkas and juice for me. Probably should have shared - but for the price - why? I had the fish tacos and hubby had a spicy chicken breast over the same rice and salsa as served with the tacos. Very good! Ended by sharing the key lime pie. A generous portion and very rich. Will have to save the banana foster for another time! Total bill, before tip and after using a $5 off coupon in a local travel brochure was $45!

“great place!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I had the ribs which just fell off the bone. Also "Those Potatoes" were creamy and yummy. The cole slaw has pineapple in it. My Mom had the seafood boil and it was loaded with all kinds of shellfish, potatoes and corn on the cob. All was delicious and reasonably priced. WE WILL GO BACK!

“Great View”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Went to caribbean jack's in the past. This is the third time back. It's awesome restaurant on the Halifax River. Tried the Mahi tacos which where perfectly cooked. Started our meal with the gator tail, ahi tuna, and shrimp. Which were all delicious.

“What a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

After much debate over where to eat our second night in Daytona, my husband and I decided, upon the recommendation of our hotel staff, to try Caribbean Jack's. I guess we went not expecting a lot, and boy were we surprised. We drove up to a really nice facility, which includes not only the restaurant but also a beautiful marina. We were asked if we wanted to eat inside our out, and were encouraged to endure the heat and try the outdoors deck. We are so glad they twisted our arm, as the outdoors is just so much fun. Some of the tables are gliders that swing while you eat. They have nightly entertainment, and Chip Rock really gave a great show the evening of our visit. The view of the marina and Intracoastal Waterway is just beautiful, and the food was equally as good. And with all of the fans on the deck, we were never uncomfortable. We started our meal with the hot crab dip, which was bowl-licking good! In fact, we asked for more bread to sop it up. I ordered the Seafood Bowl, which consisted of scallops and shrimp, baked in a phyllo bread bowl, smothered with the best lobster sherry cream sauce. It was heavenly! My husband ordered the surf and turf, and though his steak was not quite as tender as he would like, the flavor was excellent. The Caribbean Slaw was quite good, with the addition of pineapple to the ingredients. All in all, we had a wonderful experience at Caribbean Jack's, and would not miss it on our next visit to the Ormond/Daytona area.

Dear pigskingal,
Thank you for the kind words about your visit to Jack's! I'm so glad you tried our famous Seafood Bowl (excellent choice) and sat outside overlooking the marina and water. Next time your in town save room for our Bananas Foster dessert! It's big enough to share and you'll be glad you tried it!
