Grand Turk was one of the port of calls during a cruise. We did our homework and found out about Jacks Shack and I am so glad we did. You have to take a short walk down the beach but it is worth it. The drinks are good and are at a good price. It is off the beaten path... More

If you come to Grand Turk via a cruise and you are hungry, make your way down the beach away from Marguaritaville. You will be glad you did. Jack's Shack has the best Jerk Chicken and does not have a cruise ship atmosphere.

Loved the Jerk Chicken. We always try the local brew wherever we travel to. When I mentioned to Jack at the bar that it was my first time, he tried to make me a Sandy Vagina, but I insisted on the beer. LOL Would've gone back to try the other if I'd had the time. The only "dislike" would be... More

We visited Jack's Shack as part of our stop on the Carnival Glory. It is a bit of a walk up the beach almost to the next pier, but the food and the view are worth it. The jerk chicken is great. So good we bought some sauce to go. The cracked conch is also good but not as good... More

We were back in Grand Turk as part of a cruise port visit. We walked down the beach to visit Jack's Shack to have a few drinks, sit in the shade, and chat with Jack, Janet, and Erin. Topher was running around and having fun in the sand and surf. The beer is always cold ($4 local, $5 imports) and... More

GREAT food, VERY reasonable chair and umbrella prices all set on a beautiful beach just a few steps farther down the beach from the MUCH more pricier places and all within a short walk from the ships that dock nearby. Barbequed chicken was to die for, cheeseburgers rival those of the ones Jimmy Buffet sings about and fair booze and... More

We were on Carnival Freedom June 22. Walked down to Jack's shack for some beach seating, food and to visit with Topher! The drinks are a bit more than you may think, but you get the seats, and view as a bonus! The jerk chicken was very good, spicy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The conch fritters... More

The title says it all. Probably the best jerk chicken I've ever had which was slow roasted on the outdoor barbeque with a tangy and spicy sauce on the side. The conch was breaded and deep fried and much better than conch fritters served elsewhere. I do question the service as our waiter know we came of the ship and... More

Definitely have to do this while on your trip, but do NOT show up hungry...you will get some great food, but if our trip was any experience you may wait 45 minutes at the grill for your food to cook.

Jack's Shack has great Cracked Conch (I called them Conch Fritters). We came in on the Carnival Pride for the day. A crew member on the ship told us about it. When you first get off there is a big Margaritaville restaurant right there. They have a pool. We walked past it down the beach a little way, and there... More
