Went here for a family dinner with friend who was in town. Looked up the place on the internet and it seemed like a good basic restaurant serving a good selection of food that anyone could find something they like and that is exactly what I got. This restaurant is in the downtown of Dana Point very close to the... More

Had a lovely meal at Jack's. Good food, good service, and fair prices. I had the Halibut special - which was delicious. However, they served it with lemon green beans almandine - didn't really pair well. Other than that - very good!

Jack's has been one of my favorites for over 10 years. Neighborhood friendly place where they know my name. Good food and drinks. Very solid.

Jack's was a bit of a disappointment for my husband and me, We got there and were seated and then waited about 10 minutes before anyone talked to us. My husband and I both ordered salads and both salads were very bland and warm (I don't care for warm lettuce). I ordered a very simple cheese pizza and my husband... More

Jack's is a classic! I seldom sit in the restaurant, but sit right at the bar where you can often meet Jack himself. They have a lot of delicious pasta - and a very cool "berry stack" that you should try for dessert! Wow! Stylish and cool ... Go there!

Jack's is wonderful. When you pull in, the place looks understated. The atmosphere is average with booths and a small bar. But the menu and the food are absolutely excellent. Organic, paleo options are plenty. Creative, wonderful recipes put together by talented kitchen staff are as tasty as ever. My wife and I enjoyed a lovely date and plan to... More
