“Room with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We arrived by pontoon with 4 friends. Dylan met us at the dock and helped us tie off. It was a beautiful afternoon, and he served us right on the pontoon, how fun! The fish were jumping, there was a gentle breeze, and the food was great!

The owner, Melissa, came out and greeted us. The service was above and beyond what we expected. Fish tacos were fab! Grilled Mahi was also delicious.

We will definitely bring our next guests to Coconut Jacks by pontoon.

Thank you to all who served us, you made it very special for all of us!

“Great happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We took one couple there for lunch and ate inside overlooking the bay then added another couple and went back for happy hour and dinner outside. Service was great and loved the food. This is our second year enjoying the atmosphere at Coconut Jacks and we look forward to coming back next year.

“ENJOY YOUR DINNER AND WATCH THE DOLPHINS PLAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We've been trying to get into Coconut Jacks for sometime now and they are always busy. Finally made it on a Saturday afternoon around 4PM, We sat outside and the weather was beautiful. The food was good and we sat and watched 4 dolphins as they chased schools of fish. What a view. Service was excellent and we will go back again. The only negative part was the valet parking. I thought the guy was going to pull us out of our car. We have a convertible and wanted to put our top up ourselves and didn't appreciate being hurried. This place is typical of a gulf coast restaurant and I think they may jack up the prices during high season.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had been to lunch on a Sunday last year and decided it was worth a second try. The large screened patio was comfortable and the food was good but pricey. This time we wanted to try the happy hour so went on a recent Saturday evening. The happy hour prices are only available at the bar inside overlooking the wall. Why bother? Since it was not quite the dinner hour we managed to get a table on the deck and opted to order some of the conch chowder and a few appetizers all at regular prices. The server, although attentive, was clueless that we were not going to order dinners up until we asked for the check. Place never got crowded on the deck, but as we left the inside patio was packed. Not planning to go back since it just does not hit the right mark with a local such as myself.
