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

Had fish and chips here in March, 2013 and it was sooo good, I put the restaurant on my 'must eat here again!' list for the following year's trip. I craved that fabulous fish and couldn't wait to treat myself to it again After raving about this place repeatedly, my trip mates were finally talked into visiting during the second... More

We were pleasantly surprised with our lunch when we stopped in during our PV stay in early June. Everything we ordered was excellent. Ceviche was perfect. We ordered a sampler of 3 ceviches. We wanted to try a salted cod dish they had (salted cod brings back memories from my new england childhood). There just were too many great looking... More

Seeing the reviews on multiple sites about the best fish-n-chips outside of England, I had to try. We got there about 5pm on a very hot day. Wait till later. Wow. So nice of Joe to greet us with cold towels to freshen up. That in itself was a treat. My son had the mac-n-cheese. Had bacon and broccoli. He... More
