We always have a great day here...the food is great and we are always treated great. The drinks are good. The beach is awesome and snorkeling is a must. Jack, Janet, Erin and the rest of the crew are the best. And I can't forget the star of the show Topher the wonder dog! :) ♡ xoxo.

Just off a back to back cruise on which we had the pleasure of visiting Grand Turk 2 different weeks. We had seen reviews of Jack's Shack both here on Trip Advisor and on some cruise blogs. If you have a morning or afternoon to spend there at Grand Turk, please don't miss this awesome local spot. We tried the... More

Took some clients to Jack's Shack and we all LOVED it-- short stroll down the beach to get there and the drinks and food are amazing. The water is beautiful and the bartenders are awesome. Topher the dog is adorable! Highly recommend!

Jacks Shack came recommended to us, so we walked the beach to the restaurant. The food and service were great. The prices were reasonable.for the area. The owners are very nice and finding out that Jack was a native of Massachusetts, I gave him a Boston Red Sox cap. Their dog Topher was there as well, playing on the beach... More

Even though this is only a shack (with about 20 tables and 50 chairs), it could be one of the most interesting establishment on the beach due to the owner, staff and the locals that frequent the bar. If you're near Governor's Beach, you owe it to yourself to stop and have a drink. Cheers!

We had heard rave reviews about this place. All I can say is that those people were still drunk when they reviewed the place. We have had far better food at far better prices than we obtained here. I'm most upset that we probably passed up far better restaurants to go here because of the way others reviewed it. Lesson... More

Sorry you were so disappointed. Our local chefs cook great local dishes. We would have substituted another meal for you. Our prices are impacted by the high prices of produce on island. Jack More

We came in from a cruise ship and headed right out to Jack's Shack! They have amazing jerk chicken and drinks too! Topher the crab digging dog is fun to watch. We spent all of our time here. The beach is awesome! This place gets a little crowded with the ships so go early.

Where it is shown on the map, at least from my phone, is a vacant lot. I did want to try it out, but it ended up with my wife and I in a fight over it. We walked and walked, just to arrive at nothing. Took a cab back towards the docks and ate at a small place a... More

Matt, Sorry you never found our beach bar and grille. I am sure if you found us you would not rate the food, atmosphere and drinks as terrible. We love to have fun. Sounds like you did not try hard enough. Any taxi cab driver would have taken you to our location about a three minute ride.from the cruise center... More

We visited Jack's Shack on Sept. 22, 2016, while on a 7 day Caribbean Cruise. This place came highly recommended from a friend who had recently been there. After getting off the ship it's a short walk down the beach to Jack's. Get there early to get a beach lounge and umbrella. The lounges are free and umbrellas are $10.00... More
