Best spot on Grand Turk

This is our third visit to Jack's Shack and it never fails to impress. Nice seat in the shade cold beer and margaritas to wash down the fantastic jerk chicken. The beach is stunning and never seems crowded despite its popularity. Walk past MargarrittaVille this is the best.

Jack's Shack was recommended as the best jerk chicken and it was fantastic! Also loved the deep fried conch. The drinks were just okay. Friendly owners and waiters. Don't skip this gem right on the beach :-)

We visited Jack's Shack mainly because we had signed up for free shots of rum on their website. The rum was good, and the jerk chicken was excellent. The waiter was very friendly. Topher was digging in the sand, just like we expected. He was fun to watch (and I don't even like dogs!). The bathrooms were not so great,... More

We visited Jack's Shack for some lunch and drinks. Everyone was welcoming. The drinks were great, heavy on the rum! Our food, not so good. A hamburger came out bright red and raw in the middle. Our serving of Cracked Conch was ridiculous. It contained 4 small, quarter-size pieces and some crumbs. We complained, but nothing was done. Next time,... More

Visited there to grab a few Turk's Head beers on 3/24/2015. Great people, free beach is awesome, service was quick and with a smile. Well worth a the little walk, and more relaxed than Margaritaville.

Like you stepped into the Dos Equis commercial. Relaxing, good food, good local beer, entertaining hosts and dog, free chairs, beautiful water and beach. Can't ask for more. If you don't stop there, you are a fool. Forget the crowded Margaritaville.

Absolutely LOVE going to Jack's Shack. Jack has been there each time I have visited. He has a couple dogs and cats that are there. It feels like I am hanging around at a friends house. If you are looking for glitz and glamor, this is not for you. If you want a place to sit, eat, drink, have facilities... More

My sister and I came here on a cruise and I did my research and upon leaving the ship we headed straight to Jack's Shack and were greeted promptly and warmly. This place has awesome music and better food. The dogs that you will see here don't bother you if you don't engage them, however if you do get ready... More
