I honestly don't even remember what I ate here, but I dream about their lime daiquiri's all the time. We were here on a day there where not any cruise ships in port, so it was not very busy. The water was amazingly beautiful. Go...here! I wanted to come back every day just to have another great drink.More

We stopped in for lunch as our ship was ashore on GC on 3/9. Lunch and drinks were excellant, service was good. After paying for lunch with my VISA though, 3 mysterious charges appeared on my credit card as if someone helped themselves to my...C/C number. Not accusing, just putting out a fact.......................More

Went there with my family on March 10. Unable to get waited on for a drink or food. The person that you rent beach chairs from was rude to several people. Over crowded. Over priced. Will not go there again.

I wrote a review about how the cost for drinks is misleading as you think the cost is in US dollars but it is in Grand Caymen dollars. This was due to a big sign when you walk in the bar stating Bucket of Beers...$23 US dollars. The general manager responded saying the menu was clearly marked that prices were in Grand Caymen dollars .and gratuities were included so I missed it due to being in a hurray or I was captivated by the view . There was 11 of us and all of us were under the impression the drinks were in US dollars. After one couple paid in cash we realized our mistake. I went back to look at the menu and saw that in tiny letters underneath the price of each drink it should two initials that apparently stood for Grand Cayman money. When I paid for my bill, I said to the bartender "You didn't include a tip" Her response was Oh you want to leave a tip. I said no worries I will give you a cash tip and continue to pay by credit card. NOT once did she say the tip was included or what it was. I stand behind my original review. This place is over priced and not worthy. Why is there not a sign in big letters saying all prices on the menu are in Cayman dollars beside the beer sign that says the bucket of beer is in US dollars. Also why didn't the bartender tell me the tip was already included when I brought it up. My recommendation don't go to Calico Jack's it is not worth your time or money!More

Hey lee Ann carr I also stand by my previous statement that prices and tips are clearly labeled on both menu and bill. Sorry to assume why neither you or your 11 friends could not see either or ask a staff member. Just a heads...More

First of all advertising very misleading. Shows bucket of beer as $23 US for 6 beers which is true but then drinks and food are shown and you think they are in US dollars but it is in Grand Caymen dollars which is more than...US. Plus they had gratuities automatically but don't tell you. Drinks aren't that great and definitely NOT worth the costMore

Hey leeann Our menu is clearly labeled that all prices are is Cayman Island $ and that gratuities are including. It also reaffirmed on every bill you receive after each purchase. Unfortunately people do miss this as they are in a hurry or are distracted...More

Of course the location is absolutely the best. Its directly... I mean directly on Seven Mile Beach. Although the food and service were pretty good, it was more of a bar than I expected. However, I would def return.

Calico Jack's location is awesome! Right on the beach with a gorgeous view! It did get quite crowded with cruisers when ships were in port, but overall a fun place to grab a drink on the beach

This was my first cruise and my first visit to Grand Cayman so I had to come to Seven Mile Beach and after a couple of hours, swimming and sunning myself, I came to Calico Jacks and I wasn't disappointed. No way ! I was...served by two pretty women A & J, a great start, I ordered Jerk Chicken n Fries and I wanted a Dark Rum drink. What could they suggest ? A said Dark n Stormy which was with Ginger Beer. WOW What a kick. Yes please. I'll have that and also .... Bob Marley was playing on the airwaves. The perfect setting. Bingo. I will be back.More

😀 everyone (including myself) I saw had trouble getting out. We would sit in our chair and cheer them on. It was so worth it though. I can't tell you why it was hard getting out, only that it was.

You cannot use the chairs/umbrellas at the Kimpton Seafire or rent them. Security is there to remove cruise ship passengers.
