My partner and I were looking for a place to stop for dinner and came across Captain Jack's. Now the atmosphere was great and very friendly for children however, my partner ordered a steak with ribs on the side and I have chicken filet with lime and chilli sauce. The steak was mostly fat! Luckily my partner did get those... More

Arrived late in Blackpool recently on our way to Scotland. We were despairing of finding a decent place to eat away from the greasy looking fish and chip cafés that are plentiful in Blackpool. Then, almost under the Tower itself and certainly the closest place to eat, we found the treasure that is Captain Jacks. We were easily accommodated without... More

We were sick of fried fish and chips having been in Blackpool 3 days. We went here for dinner not expecting anything different from the rest of the places we visited. However both our chicken burgers were GRILLED and didn't have a batter coating. It was heaven! The chips were nice, the burger delicious, the staff were friendly and the... More

Spent £30 on the worst meal ever, for my daughter and I. Two different cuts of chicken (breast and half chicken) and two bad meals. Dried up chicken that was supposed to be succulent but we couldn't even chew it. Paid up and left, never to return.

We went in here one night for tea. The place is well laid out and the staff friendly and helpful. The food was good and very well presented. The added bonus was my 4 year old grandson got to eat for free.

I have eaten here twice. The first time everything seemed fine but unfortunately after eating here last night i am poorly. It is such a shame as i thought it was a nice place. We will never be eating here again.

Husband, son and nephew are all bug fans of ribs. So they were a bit dubious about this place, which is part of Coral Island arcade. They were not disappointed though. The ribs were great! I had a chicken kebab, whuch was also lovely. Me and my husband shared a jug of piña colada between us - great value.

Popped in here without a reservation was not too busy easily seated had the chicken kebab which was quite tasty and very good value only thing that let the dish down was the chips very greasy and not very pleasant however the kebab had peppers and mushrooms on it which really was nice. Very cheap and good quality, family friendly

We came here after spotting it and just needing some tea as the kids were hungry seated straight away. We ordered our meal and as me and the husband were sharing a starter we got the kids meals to come at the same time. Food came quick and was very nice and very hot!! You could tell it had just...
