Yummy Fried Jacks

This was our last breakfast in Caye Caulker. We sat on the patio and enjoyed our pancakes and huevos rancheros, but it was the fried jacks that really made our meal. The waitstaff were helpful in explaining the different options (e.g. how fried jacks and johnny cakes are different). Like many other... read more

We went here 4 times while on vacation in cc. The service is great - very friendly staff and food comes quickly. For $10 BZ we had a poached egg, really nice bacon and a pancake. There are lots of other breakfast options. Thanks HLobster staff!!!!

Nothing too great about this place, over priced, small portions. Service wasn't too bad but they forgot our drinks we had to ask 3 times.

My husband and I stayed on Caye Caulker for 6 days. We had one breakfast, one lunch (husband only) and 2 dinners. With my gluten intolerance I was worried on this island about communication. With a little explaination they understood my needs at Happy Lobster. The best meals were dinner. Both times we share a seafood platter for two that... More

Good service, and great food. Lobster was delicious and very reasonably priced! ($15 for a full lobster). Try to make it for Happy Hour :)

Our food was average to good. The staff was friendly but service turned out to be mediocre, which is a good word for them overall.

We kept walking past and seeing it reasonably busy unlike a lot of other place so decided to give it a try. We had a massive snapper for share for only $35B ($22.50US) and it came with some tasty mash too! It was happy hour too so the 2 rum and cokes for one was a nice bonus and the... More

I was happy with the dinners I've had here. The food has always been good, and the two for one happy hour drinks are a wonderful bonus if you're an alcoholic like me. I had the lobster with huge helpings of sides the first meal, and a burger with fries the next time I went. Both meals were utterly satisfying,... More

The breakfast here is really good! The bottomless tea and coffee is even better! It's also reliably opened. Anytime of day you can get great food and snacks. Starting at about 5pm they have some delicious dinner specials.
