Since moving to Puerto Vallarta last October, Joe Jack's is our go-to place for fish & chips, a great burger, peel & eat shrimp, salad nicoise (served both with grilled mahi mahi or shrimp) and on and on and on! The service is spot on, including ice cold towels when you sit down. Very nice touch. Go and enjoy! You... More

The food is good although somewhat "safe". Not really authentic cuisine. More like a Mexican/American type of fare. The service was good, but kind of pushy. Our waiter tried hard to oversell us on appetizers, dessert, etc. This is very different from my usual Mexican experience. It is something that I am used to in the USA, but in Mexico... More

This place was all that I was told. The atmosphere was warm, food great and staff very hospitable. I was here for two weeks and went twice. Would have gone more, but wanted to give my friends choices. If you are in PV, go! While most of the food and eateries were good, everything I had here was really good.... More

We started with margaritas. Try the watermelon marg, I know it sounds silly but it's very refreshing. My wife loves fish tacos, orders them everywhere, and told me these were exceptional. I was a bit more adventurous and had the pulpo. Joe does a great job grilling cephalopods.

If you are looking for a place to eat in PV, this is the place to go. The fish and chips are the best I have ever had, and the drinks were tasty and went down to smooth. I ate here at least 4 times well I was in PV.

Three couples went and no one was disappointed. The food was great, service wonderfull and the wine a bit on the expensive side. Didn't! Have the best table but the view was fantastic.

This was our first real meal in PV and we were not disappointed. We were greeted with a cold face towel...bonus points! The peel and eat shrimp was amazing as was their octopus ceviche. The Mojitos were not as good as Cheeky Monkey, but we were there for the food.

We read good reviews on this restaurant and one of the hotel staff also told us that they have the best fish tacos. Being in Mexico we had to have a fish taco so gave this place a try. The first thing is that they have a happy hour 2 for 1 Mojitos and boy are they good and also... More
