Really enjoyed our lunch at Jack’s. Hotdogs were available for the kids. I enjoyed a salmon sandwich that was very good. Seemed to be lots of locals in the restaurant who were regulars - always a good sign.

Nice place with very friendly service. Burgers were great, french fries as well. The serve veggie burger with black bean patty, which my wife and daughter liked a lot. A bit pricey for the value.
