Had a great visit with super friendly staff. The jerk chicken was awesome and spicey. A little pricey but fun hang out.

Checked out this spot after reading reviews. Had to pay for umbrella. The set up guy was not friendly and the umbrella was broken. The beach chairs were also not holding together. We were with another couple. We ordered the same beers. Ours were ship price each time. They paid less. Not good. We ordered jerk chicken and from my... More

We have to charge for umbrellas as we go through about 50 per year with wind damage. Yours must have been ready for replacement. We just bought 50 new lounge chairs and 10 new umbrellas to replace the deteriorated ones. The elements are very hard on our beach equipment. The beach attendant would have replaced your chairs and umbrella if... More

Visited Jack's Shack in November 2014 while on a Carnival Cruise. Topher, the owner's dog, greeted us as we were walking down the beach. Absolutely lovely! He was an added bonus to our day trip in Grand Turk. He would dig on the beach with my boys and he LOVED coming in the water with us too -- especially if... More

Jack's Shack is way less hectic and the jerk chicken is fabulous. The cruise entertainers hung out there so we knew it had to be good, they are there a lot.

Just keep walking on the beach until you see Jack's shack. This was one of my favorite stops on a recent cruise. The (free) beach chairs fill up quickly so get there early. Go for a swim with Topher the dog if you get a chance, hilarious! The conch and jerk chicken were also good. Prices are moderate. All agreed... More

We were a group of 22 that showed up at 7:30 AM. They set up chairs on the beach, had cold drinks, plenty of food and were smiling and helpful all day. if our ship was't leaving that afternoon we may have never left

We visited Grand Turk in Dec on the Carnival Fantasy. We took the short beach walk down to Jack's and it was busy. The worker manning the chairs/umbrellas was awesome and within minutes we had our spot all set up. I got the free WIFI info and checked in with the jealous family back home in Goose Creek.

I've had jerk chicken at various roadside grills in Jamaica, but this is seriously good jerk chicken. My wife had cracked conch which was also excellent. You have to do a short walk on the beach from the cruise dock, but then, that's really not a bad way to spend your time on Grand Turk.

Enjoyed Jacks while on a cruise. Short walk from the pier. Small and friendly place with great service. Jack greated us and provided us with much laughter. Had the cracked conch and just a few beers. Both were very good. Right on the beach with easy access to the water.

Jerk chicken is very good. A must try while you visit the island. I ate cracked conch everyday during my 6 days stay on Grand Turk, tried many places throughout the tiny island, I think they have the best cracked conch.
