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

Food is a lot more 'local' and reasonably priced. And you can even get a decent sized bottle of beer without having to sell your soul beforehand. Situated on the beach, a small walk away from Margaritaville, I'd say that this is a better bet to have a drink, enjoy the sun and have a bit of peace and quiet(to... More

This place is a great find. Good food, good beer, nice staff and good fun. All is really affordable, and only downside was that it was only open when the cruise liners were in during our visit. Make the effort to and find this place, as great fun.

Jack's is only open when the ships are in, but you MUST have their jerk chicken. We have been to Grand Turk twice, and each time we have picked it up on our bikes, and had it later in the day for dinner. Even then, it is AMAZING!!!! If you look, you'll see Jack swimming in the ocean with his... More

We enjoyed this place. We were on a cruise and walked down the beach to get to it. We paid for an umbrella and bought the chicken and conch. I had never had conch prior and it was good. Not chewy like I expected. I swam and played with the dog on the beach. You take sand and roll it... More

I read many other reviews of this place prior to traveling to Grand Turk (via cruise ship) and I have to say, it lived up to every expectation I had. For starters: Jack's Shack is located about 400m from the cruise terminal/welcome center. Some of the reviews in here will have you believe that it's much further, it is not.... More

Jacks Shack situated right on the beach is in an idyllic location to sit back and have a cold drink and soak up some of the Grand Turk hospitality. The staff are great, real friendly and always up for a chat. The Jerk chicken is the best on the island and the conch fritters are hard to beat. Don't forget... More

We really enjoyed the meals we had here. It is casual, affordable and great fish. We were sorry that it was only open when the cruise ships were in.

This visit to Jack's Shack is what it should be! The music was good-no loud, suggestive DJ this time- and just loud enough. The food was delicious! Topher was entertaining as always! Wonderful time was had by all.

We went to Margaritaville so my son could do the FlowRider but wanted to find an authentic Caribbean food place for lunch. I did my research and read the reviews so we headed down the beach to Jack's Shack. Free beach chairs, $10.00 Umbrella. Their dog Topher was very welcoming and entertained all. We ordered the Jerk Chicken, Fried Grouper... More
