“Visited to eat and watch sunset”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Got a table without pre booking up on the roof terrace. They didn't do the local ales that we had grown to love. I asked a waitress for a Pinot white wine but I was served a Chardonnay which I don't like and recognised immediately.
Another waiter told me they don't stock pinot white!!!
The meals were fish and chips which were average.
They were very kind in allowing me to taste a scallop. I said I had never tried one before and could I try just one. It was lovely.
Sadly it got too chilly to stay on the terrace.
I think on this evening we were the only tourists there.

“Delivers what it promises”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This place offers a fun menu in an American style with a good range of seafood. It also has lots of stuff, inside and out to keep kids occupied.

The Calamari starter was really good - homemade and nicely cooked, and a generous portion. As with so many of the eateries in Guernsey, everything is presented very well with a good balance of main component, sides and sauces/relishes. The melange of tastes work in harmony rather than competing with one another.

The portions are very generous and the seafood we enjoyed certainly tasted fresh - even though it was a Monday. The staff are smiley and attentive. The Breda lager went down a treat.

This is certainly somewhere I will return to (again).

“Great family venue!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Crabby Jacks is around the corner from us so it is always an easy choice for us with the beach across the road too. There is a fantastic playground outside for the children and in summer they have a bouncy castle too. This is a bright and airy family restaurant with helpful staff and the cost is reasonable too. I recommend this for families, if you want fine dining go elsewhere if you want good reasonably priced normal food then come here.

“overpriced”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Disappointing visit -ribeye steak with sauce and chips (no onion rings mushrooms tomatoes -just chips) almost £19- glass of Rose nearly £6 so for 4 people nearly £100 ! oh and buy the kids a SMALL Coke ? another £2.40 Shame there are no 'Hungry Horse' or 'Sizzler ' restaurants in Guernsey. Check online to compare prices -amazing difference.
