This little bar/restaurant is a very relaxing site just a 10-15-minute walk up the beach from the Cruise Dock. Their drinks were good and other people seemed to enjoy the food. We didn’t get any food. We did have a coupon from their website for a free shot of rum. We enjoyed our rest at this small little outdoor bar.... More

Loved the jerk chicken, fried conch is average. Free beach chair but $10 for beach umbrella. $4 local beer. Friendly folks running the bar & grill.

We are/drank here twice. First day had the cracked conch and jerk chicken, both were delicious! Second day we had a burger and the local filet fish, which was snapper, fried and made into a sandwich. Everything was delicious, drinks were great, staff was very friendly. Nice beach to hang out on. Absolutely loved it!!!

Second visit to Grand Turk by cruise and each time we have enjoyed walking down to Jack's Shack. Chicken is excellent and it has such a great vibe. Love this place and can't wait to return again.

Busy little beach bar with very simple food like burgers and hot dogs. We were not overly enamored with the food but it was really cheap and a great spot for lunch. The only criticism was the music was far too loud for our taste, but it was clear everyone else was having a great time and not old stick... More

Hey..it is what it is. A nice view with drinks and chairs at a reasonable price easily walkable along the beach from the cruise port. Must say, the dog is fun to watch. There are many boats on the shore looking for customers to take out for snorkel or water sports...kinda inhibits the view a little, but, it's a fee... More

After returning to the cruise port chairs from snorkeling, we were hungry. We headed down the beach to Jack’s Shack to score some jerk chicken. We knew we were in the right place when we saw the line of people. We mistakenly got in the food line first thinking we pay at the window. WRONG!! We finally figured it out... More

Not much to it - but it works! Just a hanging out beach bar with loud tunes playing. Did not stay to even order drink as the smokers were overwhelming the bar area.

The chicken was good as was the sauce. But not good enough for me to go again. Service was somewhat unfriendly.
