Went in for cold drinks on a very hot day. Mojitis were two for one and they were delicious! Ended up ordering food and everything was very good. Staff was very friendly as well! Sat upstairs in the open air. Would definitely go back!

My wife and I were in PV last week and it was recommended that we visit this restaurant. When we arrived it seemed to have a very American key west feel to it and most if not all of the diners were from the states or Canada. However the food was fantastic and the drinks were great!! I would highly... More

While staying in Puerto Vallarta overnight on a cruise, a group of 6 of us went to Joe Jack's for dinner. Some of our friends are PV familiar so they knew of the place and we're glad they did. We have a really great dinner with some good mojitos, outstanding fish tacos, and a bunch of appetizers for a meal... More

Though I found the gringo bent a bit off putting at first, I was quickly won over by the courteous wait staff and the quality of the food and drink. The mahi mahi dinner was succulent and filling, and the mojitos quite good. Oscillating fans line the walls to make the upstairs quite comfortable, even when the sliding roof is... More

Went for lunch with a party of 7. Treated great. It was hot as hell out, the staff brought cool hand towels right away. The shrimp bucket app was great! They saw we were celebrating a 40th b-day and next thing you know we had comped shots of tequila for all! Was perfect little 'hole in the wall' type place... More

I went with my wife, she had fish & chips, I had a cheese burger. Both dishes were tasty, portions were generous. Solid, but nothing to get excited about. Unfortunately the music was too loud to have a conversation on the table.

My favorite varies between the camarones al mojo de ajo- fabulous garlic shrimp with a side of red-rice and tart beans. I love, love the salads, especially the special Bistro menu. I could eat here happily four nights a week. Always consistent freshness, nice mojitos, portion size is just right and the staff: top of the line.

I love to pop in here for the best hamburguesas, ceviche Hawaiian syle but spicier and killer mojitos. The staff is freindly, casual and the retro music rocks! It's always easy and a no-brainer. Glad they came on the scene!!!

By far the best fish I have ever had in my life....a nice cut of sea bass served over vermicelli with asparagus

The staff as always very helpful and excellent. The Macaroni & Cheese is also very good as well as their desserts. The... More
