You order, and pick up your food. They have an upper deck seating overlooking the water (across the street). The fried seafood was cooked to order. So were the lobsters and steamers. Everything looked good and it was hot and fresh. The seafood platter was a good mix but the fries were not that hot. As far as fried platters... More

Prices used to be a LOT better, but if you forego the "extras" and just get a carton of fried clams or scallops it's a good place to spend $13. Breading is typical and fried anyway so it neither detracts nor adds to the flavor and Little Jacks DOES accept credit cards, unlike many competitors on the beach. Always a... More

My whole family loves this place. We always sit on the top deck to get the ocean view. Love the fried haddock. Portions are great for the price. French fries are basic, however, a family favorite and a must have is the onion rings. They are so addictive!

We've lived in the area for many, many years and visited the beach thousands of times and never stopped here. The high deck with a view of the ocean to the east and a gorgeous sunset to the west were the main attractions to try the food, seafood, of course. It was better than average. The belly clams were a... More

We decided to try this restaurant because we wanted a change from the others that we frequent in the area and we have driven by this one for years. We should have driven by it again. While the location/view is nice and the people working there were pleasant, the food was sub-par. This is a clam shack design in restaurant... More

Excellent seafood. Fresh, fresh fish. Delicious onion rings. Lobster roll was loaded with huge claw and tail pieces. Fried clams were delicious, not too greasy. Bellies were sweet and tender. Steamers were to die for. Perfectly made, not a tough one in the bunch. Will go there again!!

I have been to Little Jacks several times over the years. I went for the first time this season this afternoon. The Fish and Chips are the best you will find, although honestly, I never get the the chip, because there is so much delicious fish. It's not a very fancy place. You order at a window, them wait for... More

I used to enjoy this restaurant but the last meal I had here was disappointing. There was too much breading in the lobster dish, some things were cold and did not taste as fresh as I remembered from this past..

Once again Little Jack's provided us with a nice meal and a good experience. We visited this location on a weekday, during the week after July 4th and it was empty at lunch time (which is a good thing for us). The menu has a large selection of traditional New England seafood, lobster, and traditional fare. The upstairs outdoor deck... More
