Joe Jack's is always friendly, my husband loves the fish and hamburgers and they have good vegetarian fare (try the macaroni and cheese!) for me.

Great fish and chips. Service with a smile, and fast. Fun menus (take the time to read it!) And absolutely, positively do NOT miss the salted caramel budin for dessert. In fact, order it first and eat the fish later. Yes. It is that good. And life is short.

Every day there usually is a line beginning around 7.. That said tells that the food is very good. I go there ALL the time and have NEVER had a bad meal and the price is right. It is located on a street with lots of other restaurants and lots of shops especially on Friday night when it is "The... More

Great value for the money. 2-for-1 mojitos and margaritas during happy hour. Go for the fish tacos and eat up on the rooftop patio.

Wonderful tasty food! Great service, and nice location less than 5 minutes from the beach. This is one of the more popular restaurants for lighter fare, mainly seafood. Highly recommended and great value for money!

Food was less than average. Fish and chips were greasy with no flavor at all. Overall less than average experience and rooftop terrace was hot (very few fans). Servers hovered and seemed to be in a huge rush to get us out.

Great food and atmosphere. Friendly staff and good drinks. All to a very fair price. The side orders were super yummy (string beans and carrots). Cerviche super fresh and great taste. Mac and cheese for the kids absolutely to die for. I almost had half of it myself :) Margaritas absolutely fabulous. Even the beans and rice had super nice... More

It has become a tradition that our first meal in PV is at Joe Jack's Fish Shack. We just love this place and it keeps us coming back. Sometimes we go more than once during a week. We love to sit upstairs on the open patio. Enjoy their refreshing mojitos (which are on HH special) and now we typically order... More
