This was our first visit to this restaurant. I got the baked haddock and my wife got the crab cakes (both platters). Both dinners were well prepared and the portions were generous. You order outside and then go inside and wait for your order number to be called. Meanwhile you can enjoy the nautical and sea exhibits decorating the restaurant.

We stopped in after a day at the beach and had a great meal. It isn't your regular sit down and be waited on type restaurant as you order and pay from an outside window and then find a table either inside or on one of their outside decks until they call your number. We had our seafood (they have... More

You order at a window at this popular restaurant. Large menu of seafood, great soups, and big portions of food. Lots of charming rooms at this sprawling restaurant for you to eat in.

If atmosphere and setting are important to you, you might be very satisfied here. There is a main dining room downstairs, a smaller one to the side - near the restrooms, an even smaller one upstairs and a large open deck with views of the sea and marshes. There are also picnic tables outside on a lawn if that is... More

My family has been here 3 summers in a row and they run out of prime rib everytime. Not sure if we go too late or if they don't cook enough of it. Friendly staff, good food, prices average and good atmosphere.

Was a little disappointed that basically cafeteria style but everything was very good. Had a delicious blueberry vodka lemonade drink....EXCELLENT! The food was very good. Had fried calamari as an appetizer, stuffed half lobster. Extensive menu. Enjoyable experience.

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
