“Worth the Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We here in a town near by and asked where a good restaurant was. We were told to drive out of town and about seven miles the other direction to Captain Jack's. Were we ever glad we asked! The food was outstanding and the service excellent and friendly which both make up for the dated feel of the place.

“Excellent food with a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

On our way back to Crater Lake after spending an afternoon at Lava Bed National Monument. In the middle of nowhere, we found this restaurant. First I was not sure they were open and lady told me they still served lunch time after 3 in the afternoon. We order chicken noodle soup and ham and cheese sandwich. Soon we tasted the food, my first response was it just like at home. It was so long to have a good ham and cheese sandwich especially when it was grilled sandwich. The meal only cost us a little bit over $10 for both of us including drink and a slice of pie. An old man who came in probably was their regular customer. A lady called him by his first name and his order. Don't fool by outside appearance of this restaurant if you happen to drive through Tule Lake area. Look for "Captain Jack Stronghold" sign, you will not disappoint with their food!

“Middle of nowhere excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

My brother took me to Captain Jacks for dinner in September 2012. It's nowhere, or in the middle of nowhere and the food is terrific. The locals no about it and the cook waved at my brother from the kitchen. We had pork chops (generous portions) prime rib, and dijon chick breast. The food was terrific and the service fabulous. The au gratin potatoes are a great side. We also had their house cabernet and it was just fine. I believe that someone has found a place to hide away this secret restaurant with satisfactory prices. I recommend it when you are in the area.

“Wow! These people know how to cook!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The steaks are incredible! Good food, moderately priced, clean restaurant and friendly staff. We periodically make the 30 mile drive to get here, and it's worth it.
