“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

This is the place where tourist buses from the cruise ship pier will push you to get off of their bus. It is a very limited menu, but that's okay because it is convenient since it's right on the beach. The problem is that it is obscenely expensive. $37+ for two kids to eat lunch. That's ridiculous!

“Great Restaurant & Bar on Seven Mile Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

While the menu is fairly limited, the food was good the portion sizes were good and you can't beat the location. This place is located right on the public beach portion of Seven Mile Beach. The bartenders and waitresses were really cool. Good spot for lunch for a family or just a group of adults.

“Expensive Tourist Trap.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I didn't have high expectations, but this was not even up to the fairly low standard I had in mind for the place on the public beach.

The drinks were really expensive and overly sweet. We had a piña colada and it was just not very tasty.

Ordered some jerk chicken and a fish sandwich which both disappointed. The fries were very salty and the fish sandwich mostly batter.

It is one of the few places that is beach front outside of the resorts on 7 mile beach, but your better to back to the main road and save some money for a better meal.

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Calico Jacks is right on the beach. Picnic tables in the sand or eat inside. Jerk Chicken and quesadillas were very good. Drinks are very reasonable. Great place for lunch or drinks at night!
