“Really Like The Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Lahaina in Hawaiian means "merciless sun". It gets hot here. I mean really hot. The West Maui mountains block out the trade winds keeping breezes and shading clouds at bay. Jack's sits on the second floor of a building across from the small boat harbor and catches the onshore/offshore airflow through wide open windows all around. The place belongs to the same owner as Cool Cats across the courtyard so one would expect and will receive great burgers if desired. However, this is the upscale version of this dining duo so we focus on the fish. It's fresh off the boats and has never disappointed. Breakfast is an on again / off again affair so check if its being served so you won't be disappointed. Regardless, the loco moco is the bomb and is available all day. They do a kamaaina discount so be sure to ask if you live in Hawaii.

“Fantastic lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We had the last lunch of our trip here. The fire chicken wings & French fries were awesome. After 10 days of fish & burgers it was a nice change. Thumbs way up. Got to watch part of a World Cup game too.

“Poor service, Poor managent”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

My boyfriend and I thought it looked like a great place to try because whenever walked by they seemed to be pretty busy.
We came during lunch time. We were seated by Front Street. The place maybe had four other couples there. The waiter came by to get our order. Not once did he come back to check on our drinks. In fact I had to get up to get a drink. When looking around. Our waiter was standing around talking to the other staff members. Twenty minutes later our food arrived. Everything looked good except for the dead gnats that were all over my small side salad. After finding the gnats we brought this to the managers attention. He actually asked us if maybe the gnats had gotten there after we got our plates. He never appologized. He just said that there were no gnats in the kitchen. A little disappointed in the management. He did take the meal off of the bill, but still no apology.

“Great Fish and a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

WOW
I had fish, here, three times.
The ono was delicious :)
Bottomless non-alcoholic bevies and delicious alcoholic ones.
Always a good vibe, and LOTS of big screens to watch the sports.

“I got food poisoning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We went there for dinner, four of us. I had the Captain Caesar salad with added chicken, and the others had other dishes. My three companions were fine but I was up all night being violently sick.
