Very Good

Little Jack's continues to be a favorite in Hampton Beach. Food is good and the portions are big. The atmosphere is bad and the service at the bar is very slow. Food is better than Beach Plum or Sea Ketch and almost as good as Ray's in Rye and Luis.

It's obvious that family and friends MUST have given this place the reviews that got us into the door...WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! First off, you walk in only to be asked to go back outside to order, pay and get a number. You then walk back inside and wait for your number to be called. We were expecting awesome seafood, what...

Great outside deck and the food was excellent. Would definitely go again. You order at a window and pick up your own food, but, there's plenty of wait staff to help once you're at your table.

Got the fried clams. They were reasonably priced and tasty but came in huge globs which was less appealing to me. Wait time was longer than usual but there were a lot of people at the take out window.

We ordered the catch 22 years ago and were amazed at the portion of food we were giving, since then it has been a tradition, out family has grown over the years but it is still more than enough, with a great variety. My boys like the decor, your in and out in no time, and there's live lobsters for... More

We headed up for lunch and had another top Trip Advisor restaurant in the GPS for lunch. Upon dealing with all the traffic on the strip, all the people, and no place to park the car in any "pay as you park" parking lot, or on the street with a meter. Disgussed, we drove further north hoping to find a... More

Unpretentious, casual and delicious. These are the three factors I look for in a good old fashioned seafood meal and Little Jack's meets all of these requirements. We stopped by last night for our seafood fix and were not disappointed. Waiting in line was the hardest part, only one person was taking orders and it took a while. Once the... More

Great seafood restaurant with high quality seafood! Very fair pricing with decent size portions. If between Hampton Beach & Rye Beach this is a great lunch/dinner spot to try!
