Grass fed, wild caught sustainable food! Jack's has an excellent variety for the choosiest diners- lamb, beef, veal, chicken, fish, seafood and even raw, vegan and Gluten free choices. All at affordable prices. I highly recommend the eggplant appetizer as it is the best I have ever eaten!

Jack's is our "go to" place. When we want a special evening or to celebrate a special occasion, Jack's is the place. One of the things that makes the place special is that Jack (and most of his staff!) remember your name after a couple of visits. The food covers a wide area. Mostly Italian but if you are health...

Thankfully we had a reservation on a Saturday night because they were turning people away. While the decoration isn't anything to write home about... the food is! The trout was excellent! The service was more than adequate as to be helpful but not intrusive. After dinner go for a nice walk on the Strand Beach. Perfect evening.

My boyfriend took me to Jack's for my birthday this week. Jack is a good man and the service here is great. Love the ambience and setting. We had Veal Marsala and a Halibut steak. Received a lovely spumoni for my birthday. As always, we will be back!

I thought it was a little pricey. The food I ordered I didn't like at all (pasta with shrimp and spicy lemony-capers sauce). The waitress was friendly though. The place was nice but I didn't like the food.

We were visiting Dana Point, and decided to try Jack's. Food: For what it's worth, the quality and portion of the food was realy good (filet mignon and orang roughy). We also ordered brownie a la mode - very good. Service: Friendly and attentive. One minor thing - we made reservation through open table, asked for a recognition since it... More

The food isn't inexpensive and the menu looks good. One of our dishes was good, the other not memorable at all, and seemed high priced for the level of the food. And my wife hated the ambience - it looked more like a local bar or tavern than a restaurant in the price range that it charged. It was also... More

Jacks is a favorite go-to spot for our family. It gets high marks in every category-generous drinks, good wine list, fresh and tasty food from a varied menu, nice surroundings, and always good service. Reasonable prices too. Jacks is always busy but never chaotic. Jacks is a great asset for our town of Dana Point.
