I see a wide range of reviews here, which I assume reflect the difficulty of finding good wait staff as a family-owned restaurant. Service looked painfully slow the day I visited; and so, armed with a very wide range of reviews hear about the service,...More

We had 6 people (2 kids); some people wanted lunch, some wanted breakfast, and the kids wanted Chicken Tenders, of course. Kids said chicken tenders were the “best ever” and gobbled them up. The Stone Harbor Omelet was stuffed with a good portion crab meat,...More

My family and I have been coming to Avalon/Stone Harbor for over a decade. We have never had a worse dining experience than tonight. We got in town, unpacked and decided to grab something relatively light. Our favorite crab cake place is no longer in...More

Went to Jacks as part of a group dinner party. Our mission was to get a chicken dish for a big party in Avalon. Bottom line is we got 4 dozen wing tenders with sauces. Very moist, tender and tasty. This review is not gourmet...More

We ordered take-out sandwiches with drinks. Fast, polite service. No wait, but it was 1:30pm on Monday. Everyone enjoyed their food - crab cake sandwich was especially good, but we had the Philly cheesesteak and a Cuban panini as well.

Worst service we have ever experienced. Kyle should never have a job that requires him to interact with people or to remember anything. Food was good but we will never go back.

My wife and I eat here on a regular basis when in Stone Harbor. Food is always good. Casual setting & friendly service. We enjoy the fish tacos and grouper sandwich. Fish is always fresh and cooked to order.

We were wondering the streets of Stone Harbor in late October looking for a place to eat lunch. We stumbled across a sandwich board outside the bookstore advertising Jack’s Shack. We checked out the menu and decided to try it. We were not disappointed! We...More

Good food at a good price. Service is less than great but they get the job done. They have great breakfast sandwiches and lunch and dinner menu. Great for a quick bite to eat.
