We went to Jack's Shack after our excursion based on TA recommendations and were not disappointed. It's a nice little spot for a more local lunch without as much of a crowd. It was very busy, but nothing in comparison to the oppressive crowd near the cruise terminal (and we were the only ship there that day). I also felt... More

If you're visiting Gran Turk and want to enjoy this slice of paradise without all of the commercialized hoopla just get off the ship and walk down the beach to the left to the last tiki bar set up area which is Jack's Shack. You'll enjoy beach loungers for FREE and can rent a sun umbrella for a nominal $10... More

This place is a short walk down the beach from the cruise ship dock. It is on a beautiful beach with very clear and calm water. They have cheap beach chairs and umbrellas. We have been here many times and love their jerk chicken! The service is fantastic too. The owners are right there chatting with people and making everyone... More

If the spring break type music at the Cruise beach makes you nuts then walk just a little way down and relax at Jack's Shack. My kids stayed at the crazy beach and my wife and I walked down to enjoy a great lunch and a cold beer. The reviews are right this is the best food on the beach.

We have been to Jacks Shack multiple times and can't get enough of it. Best beach, food, drinks and people on the island. The jerk chicken can't be beat. Cooked fresh on the grill. Janet, Jack and Erin are always welcoming! Free beach chairs and umbrellas will only cost you a bit. Make sure you don't get lured in by... More

While on a cruise this was a port of call. My wife did some shopping so I ventured down their beach to check out this place that some fellow cruisers told me about. Not a bad spot for it does have some lounge chairs/umbrellas available and one of them cheaper places to buy a beer and get a simple, inexpensive... More

We had a truly wonderful and relaxing beach day at Jack's Shack in Grand Turk. Our day began with a walk from the cruise ship along the beach to Jack's Shack. We had 43 people of all different ages in our group. It's about a 10 minute walk, but for older adults, who may have difficulty walking, I recommend going... More

I had the pleasure of hanging at Jack's Shack on a cruise to Grand Turk. Do yourself a favor and get away from the cruise crowd! Everyone will inevitably hangout at the closer local chain! We had an amazing time chatting with the owners, drinking, eating jerk chicken, and relaxing on the beach. It was my first taste of Turks... More

On our last trip to Grand Turk, we got off the ship, turned left out of the cruise terminal and headed straight for Jack's. We spent a wonderful, relaxing day there enjoying, the sand, view, Topher, good food and good drinks. We rented 2 chairs and an umbrella from people on the beach and were soon greeted by Topher, Jack... More
