I am a regular at this place and a big fan. The food is ALWAYS quite good and service at the bar ( where I like to eat) is excellent. I especially am impressed with the sixteen choices of craft beer on tap and the frequent changes in the beer lineup. There are specials each night -- drinks, beer and food.

We ate outside which was very pleasant. Novel cocktail served in a jam jar. Y husband had sashimi tuna to start which was good. He then had salmon. He enjoyed the accompaniments bug the salmon was over cooked. I had scallops with wild mushroom risotto. By other restaurants standards in New England, the scallops were just slightly overcooked but I enjoyed the meal and the staff were very attentive and pleasant.

We found the food, drinks & prices were great. Cannot fault anything about this place as we returned sevaral times. $5 pizza betwween 5-7pm? Really good pizza too. Would advise to go after the pizza deal though as it can get noisy around then.

We eat at Jack-Tar's restaurant often when we are in Marblehead.

We have lived in the town for a very long time. Jack Tar's have been a very good tucked away pub for a number if years now.

It's good... Try the veggie/goat cheese pizza, to die for!

Good drinks, a noisy but intimate atmosphere.

Try it, you'll love it

Stopped for drinks after dinner. Nice patio! Bartender, Steven, was very friendly. Did not eat here...just drinks but atmosphere was comfortable. $35 for 4 drinks a bit steep but it is New England!
