We ate here for lunch on our last day in Puerto Vallarta. The food is excellent and huge portions you will not leave hungry! I wish we found this place earlier...we will definitely eat at Joe Jack's Fish Shack during our next visit to Puerto Vallarta.

Amazing multi-flavoured Mojitos (ginger, pineapple, strawberry... Also can be made with TEQUILLA for something different)and delicious food! The green papaya salad and the sea bass miso were fantastic. My partner had the full red snapper... What an amazing dish! Daily specials, including some tasty desserts... The Mojitos were 2-for-1 :)

Best meal we had in PV. We each ordered the whole red snapper and a couple of mojitos. The snapper is filleted table-side, although you still have to watch out for some bones. It is delectable! Perfectly seasoned and moist. The beans served with it are incredible too. We will be back!

We are not fish lovers. We went to Joe Jack's for shrimp. The waitress walked by with a plate of fried fish, and we both said how good it looked. The waitress came back with a large plate of fish for us to sample, and it was AMAZING! Can't wait to go back for fish!!!

For fish and chips this remains one of PV's best spots, and I have been going to PV for a week for 30 years and have lived in central Mexico for 13 years, so I certainly know the restaurant scene. One issue is that the serving is not very generous for the price, except for all you can eat Fridays.... More

This down to earth restaurant is great for all kinds of fish and shrimp. I love the Shrimp and Chips Combo and their cole slaw is divine!

I give Joe Jacks and their great staff five stars all day for their great service and high-quality, delicious offerings. High season or slower season alike these fine restauranteurs keep their great reputation and excellence. Well done.
