I thought it was just okay, nothng great. We had calamari to start. It was fried and served with lemon and banana peppers. I am not sure which of these items caused the calamari to be soggy. It tasted okay. The clam cakes are good. I picture foodies going all of the way to RI just for the clamcakes. I... More

this place has been around for years, the food is good, the service okay and the prices average. The problem is there are other places now located in the area that do as good as or better job. Time for the Cap'n to rethink his operation to compete with the competitor's.

I have to say this restaurant does not cheat on their serving sizes! My husband and I both ordered the fried seafood sampler plus calamari. Sampler came with chowder and clam cakes. Could have ordered 1 entrée and shared! We were both stuffed by the time our entrees arrived. Sampler included fried oysters, clams, huge fish fillet, scallops. Tasted a... More

Not impressed with Cap'n Jacks. Food is average, service is spotty. Nothing exciting about this place.

Probably the quickest service we have every had at a restaurant. The calamari was terrific and the serving size was huge! I ordered the lobster roll and although it was good... it wasn't great. There was a lot of claw meat and it's tasted more fish like then I would have preferred (we had lobster roll the night before at... More

Had a good experience with my family. We all enjoyed our food. I had some clam chowder and clam cakes and my husband had the calamari salad. The waitstaff was excellent.

It was over priced, soggy, fried seafood, but not horrible. Better experience at Jim's Dock right around the corner.

I had'nt been home for 23 years. So wanted a really good New England food memory. Captain Jack's only left a bad taste. The creamy New England Clam Chowder was thin, weak tasting, had too many huge chunks of potatoes and hardly any clams. The grilled cheese sandwich from the kids menu was on huge thick bread and the worst... More

My family has been visiting Rhode Island for the past 30 years. This restaurant is one of the first ones we tried going back that far. Food has always been good as well as the staff. The menu offers a great selection of seafood and the place is very family friendly. Timing is everything, as during the beach season, this... More

After reading some of the reviews I was a little nervous to go there and eat. They now have a new chef and the food was delicious! The restaurant has great views if you wish to sit outside and dine. We opted to eat in. The service was friendly and prompt. The food from appetizers to dessert was delicious! We... More
