“Marina Watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you just want to sit in a small, very open air bar and sip a brew and eat a hot dog, go to Jack's Lookout. It sits right in the middle of one of the largest marinas on the island. Friendly service and a lot of 'old salt' talk is to be had by all who stop by. The clam chowder is also something to write home about.

“Semi-Dangerous Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

A little hole in the wall kind of bar that is casual and relaxing to hang out at. The cast of characters are entertaining and comprised of folks from the semi-deranged retired New Englanders to thirsty vacationers angling for a view of the boats coming in with freshly caught fish. Light up a cigar and swap stories with fellow travelers with interesting tales to tell. Cold beer served by attentive, attractive and efficient bartenders. A local favorite of the world famous and recently departed "Bobby the Jar". While they have no liquor available, it is nonetheless a great spot to pop in for a couple of "hoodsies" and lively banter. Beware of zany folks from MA and other nearby states!
