A Hampton Beach Tradition

Little Jack's offers large portions and a varied menu. The fried clams were very good and the 1/2 pound cheeseburger is a good option for someone who is not interested in seafood.

The clam chowder was very bad with a bitty taste of flour, shocking taste, The fish (pollock) and chips portion was enormous, the fish was very good as was the batter no grease or aftertaste in your mouth which to me is always a good sign of a great batter, the clam strips with chips was another enormous serving, the...

Our particular visit to Little Jack's was perfect! We stopped there after leaving North Beach on Labor Day weekend. (It is between North Beach and Hampton Beach, right on the main road.) No line, delicious whole fried clams, cold Corona with lime, nice sunny table on the upper deck out back. We ordered the food at the window and they... More

I got the twin lobsters they came with corn on the cob very small bag of chips and Cole Shaw. One lobster was bright red and the other was 3/4 black a second? for the price I would expect a better looking one . The service was fast . My wife's crab cakes were good.

Every once in a while you gotta have fried clams. I'm not big on fried food but the scallops were tender and the clams were tasty. They also offer broiled sea food but when you're craving fried clams, who wants the healthier option?! Service was fast and friendly. We sat on the roof deck and ate our large plates of... More

We went because it was close to our hotel. It's not a full service restaurant but a very large snack shack as you have to order and retrieve your own food and drink from a window. Once we got to a table it was very nice with a great view. Never saw a wait staff once. The food is plentiful... More

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.

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.

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.
