“Nice place for a drink and food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped in and had a great drink and food was good as well. I had crab cakes and salad and wife had a steak and it was all good. Great little spot to relax near the pier.

“lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Enjoyed a lunch with my family of 6. Everything was very good and the wait staff was excellent. We sat inside, too hot outside. All were happy with their meals. I had ordered the sashimi wrap and our waitress accidentally brought me the sashimi appetizer, She said it was her mistake and said enjoy that while I put in the correct order. Both were delicious! HIghly recommend it on your visit to Kure Beach!

“Good food-good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Good burgers and nice outside area to eat. Can get crowded but eat later and not so bad. Service friendly and good. Only disappointment is that the bar closes pretty early---not a Night Life place

“Chili Lime Mahi... Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The island decor is cute, the staff is very pleasant, and the food is delicious! I highly recommend the chili lime mahi. My family had the swordfish special and the crabcake duo, both of which were also scrumptious. And, of course, sweet tea is a must. We will likely return for another meal at Jack Mackerel's during our next visit!

“Food mediocre, but nice ambiance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

The restaurant was okay. Not a good waiting area. Had to go outside and wait. Very crowded. Rolls were disappointing . Grouper was undercooked. Mixed grill was just okay , and this was one of the nightly specials. The ambiance was nice though. Just wish the food matched the ambiance!
