This wasn't the best place I have eaten, but it wasn't the worst either. I couldn't face going in last year as it looked like a cheap diner from outside and the menu wasn't anything special. This time, I was determined to give it a go. A pleasant smile greeted us and I asked if we could sit along the... More

We called in on our way back to Inverness.My wife had the Smoked Mackerel and I had Mushrooms stuffed with Haggis in batter,followed by Lambs Liver and Bacon and Venison Sausages in Onion Gravy .The portions were so big we could have had the starters as our main meal. The Liver and Bacon was the best I have ever had.... More

We thought the name was cheesy, but were so hungry we didn't care. Location is beautiful, with a view of the loch just across the road. Boy were we (pleasantly) surprised! Phenomenal local salmon (smoked) and peppered mackerel in generous portions for a quite reasonable price. We were enroute to Skye, and would likely have returned the next evening had... More

Lovely position and very clean. The view from the windows is gorgeous and the food though basic was nicely cooked and well presented. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Pleasant experience.

The road-stop café type diner was what you would expect. Typical menu with all the favourites, fish and chips, scampi etc... Staff were very mannerly and welcoming. Good views. Reasonably priced evening meal. Would return.

We were anxious find somewhere to stop for lunch and it was running late. First of all, we drove straight past The Jac-O-Bite because it looked like a cheap American diner. However, needs must and we eventually turned round and went back there - and how glad I am that we did!! Inside, the large dining area is comfortable and... More

Excellent food, friendly service and accommodating staff. We had a meal for a large party of ten people and the staff handled it with ease and good humour. don't let the outside 'look' fool you. Inside the restaurant is well appointed and the food is very good.

The first time we had tried the Jac-o-Bite, even though we had passed it several times. From the outside it looks pretty basic, but it is clean and looks recently redecorated inside. The young man serving was really friendly and helpful. The lunch menu is quite simple, although the restaurant is licensed and the evening menu looks more adventurous. I... More
