“Great Food”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We arrived at the restaurant late on a Friday,tired and hungry. Found it very loud and very busy, not what we wanted but certainly what the other clientele were looking for. Lots of staff, very friendly and helpful, but seemed confused with the volume of customers. The food was quite slow in coming but in fairness the restaurant was very busy. We ordered the sushi rolls and they were absolutely delicious. Had intended to return to try more of the menu at a quieter time but didn't have an opportunity.

“outstanding food overlooking the harbor”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We had an incredible Sunday brunch that started with jalapeno, cheddar cornbread with bacon butter. The fresh and interesting combination of items available made it tough to decide what to order and with great drink specials like bottomless mimosas for $13 we will be back to make our way all the way down the menu. And then back up it again. Our table ordered the french toast (bacon maple syrup yes please!),crab cakes, BST, waffles with nutella, lobster, and an assortment of eggs on the side. My husband is dying to come back and try their Ahi Tuna tacos while I have my eye on the Japanese cosmo. Even though we were there mid-day, the patio is covered and had ceiling fans so we stayed nice and cool while seated overlooking the harbor. This also may sound a little weird but their bathrooms are really nice too. With black, grey and white accents with framed mirrors it had an upscale feel for a comfortable, casual, waterfront restaurant.

“Killer Cocktails! ”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

All the restaurants on the Boardwalk are pretty pricey because it's a smorgasbord of tourist traps. However, Jackacuda's offers guests a touch of class missing from surrounding establishments. The mixed drinks were great. They served me the best Bloody Mary I had ever had! The sushi list is smaller than most restaurants and pretty pricey, but we enjoyed the 2 rolls we order.

We really enjoyed everything we ordered for lunch - crab cakes, oysters, fried avocado, and kale salad. Our waiter was kind and attentive. We will be back!
