This is a wonderful place - not to miss!

Jack's is wonderful. When you pull in, the place looks understated. The atmosphere is average with booths and a small bar. But the menu and the food are absolutely excellent. Organic, paleo options are plenty. Creative, wonderful recipes put together by talented kitchen staff are as tasty as... read more

The atmosphere is lovely, staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and very attentive. The food was delicious. I had the halibut special. If was wonderful. My husband had a seafood pasta and he was very happy with his choice. We were impressed and would return the next time we are in the area.

We love Jacks! It's local and easy; delicious food- eggplant appetizer is a great way to start any meal and the meatballs are a Must! Best thin crust Pizza in Dana Point; we call Jack the Pie Guy. Service is great from the very friendly staff. Highly recommend Jack's for any occasion.

what on earth is this doing in the top 20 places to eat? We all hated our food. The steaks were cooked poorly, the chicken was underdone & the waitress was beyond rude. So rude, that we felt that she had messed with our food. Do not waste your time let alone, your money. Too many great options around &... More

The outside of the restaurant has no ambiance. When we walked in we thought it was closed. The Caesar salad was not cold and dressing was average,. Notany people there and none waiting. The lamb was good but overall the meal was not as good as expected. We asked for bread two times and even it was subpar.

No matter your diet you will find something to please your palate at this cozy Italian bistro. They have a gluten free pasta dish and gf and vegan pizza. I had the Spinach and Fontina salad. It was delicious. The seafood arrabiatta served at the next table smelled great. The Jack's Amber ale is also a hit, smooth and flavorful,... More

I have been eating at Jack's for years and love the place. The food is awesome! Super friendly and fun staff. Check out happy hour and try the eggplant parmesan, by far the best you will ever find in any restaurant.

My wife and I visited this restaurant during happy hour and the food was so good we skipped dinner. We each had different salad. My wife added eggplant parmesan and I had calamari. Everything was discounted due to happy hour and everything tasted great. The staff was very welcoming and the service was terrific. We will return whenever we are... More

Always good no matter what or when. Farm to table concept means fresh and organic but sophisticated cuisine. Jack is always there to meet and greet and you feel like his personal guest.
