We had seen Barrier Jacks reviews and decided to visit on our first morning in Cocoa Beach, we were not disappointed. Be prepared to wait for a table but it is worth it. A varied menu and all cooked to order by Jack. The servers are friendly and helpful and there was a good atmosphere. We had 3 breakfasts here... More

We ate lunch here. My husband had the flounder po boy. It was excellent. The homemade sliced fries were really crispy. I had the fried oyster basket with French fries. The fries were really good and also very crispy. The fried oysters were mostly batter and it was hard to even taste the oysters. It is a small restaurant and... More

We stopped in here on a weekend for breakfast. There was a wait as most restaurants have on weekends. The problem we had was there is no host or person who takes your name. You just standing a tiny room and rely on the honor system. For those who have honor this is no problem. We found that some locals... More

Finally went after reading the reviews the last few years. Are we glad we did. This is real Florida hospitality. It maybe small, have a wait but it is worth it. It is honest homemade cooking at reasonable prices. We had breakfast 5 times and supper twice during our short stay. We tried blueberry pancakes Yum, eggs, home fries and... More

We arrived on a weekday morning to find every space in the parking lot filled, and we figured that was the ultimate sign of good food. We were right! The seafood omelet was divine and their homemade habanero sauce gave it the perfect kick. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Cocoa Beach.

This is not a fancy place, but the food is truly wonderful, and the care taken in its preparation and delivery is obvious. Stopped by to get a to-go order because I was on the road. While I waited I watched the servers, who move like dancers. Genuine care for customers was evident everywhere. The place has a good vibe!... More
