Generous portion and in one word, 😋 yummy! Service was quick and courteous. We are glad they will be part of the new co-op in town, good food and reasonable prices. Shoestring fries were crisp and delicious!

What a fun place. And really good, too. Driving past, you would be forgiven for just casting a glance and driving on- but that would be a mistake. There are lobster rolls and burgers, scallops, clams and hot dogs, fries and fried onions, all good,...More

While back in NE I have been doing a personal lobster roll search. Found a couple of good candidates in CT. However this roll was packed with sweet meat and not excessive mayo. Whole belly clams were great not too heavily battered. Went late in...More

Thought we would stop and try Jacks. Ordered hot dogs and fries. It took over 35 minutes for our order to arrive. Hot dogs were burned and fries if you could call them fries were a bunch of small over cooked pieces. Will skip and...More
