Being that we were here on a Sunday afternoon in mid September, this place was dead, there was only one other party besides us when we arrived. I'm sure during high season, ((summer)) this place is rockin every day. It's a typical seaside seafood fry place. Place your order at the window, find a table and wait for your number... More

Little Jacks is the place to go for great sea food and service. The seafood stew is so yummy you'll want to take some home.

Their clam chowder, lobster roll and fried seafood platter was very good and very quick, less than 10 min. A little strange that you place the order & pay outside, then go inside, sit at your table & wait for your number to be called to pick up food. Friendly staff.

The food was EXCELLENT!! We ate here on Friday night August 19th for our first time.I ordered the fried clam strip roll. I like fried clam strips but I don't eat them a lot and usually drown them in tartar sauce. I popped the first strip into my mouth without the tartar sauce because I was hungry - and it... More

Went here twice on our trip, my sister and I both got the fish and chips, and split the crab cakes the first night, the second time we only got one order of fish and chips and split crab cakes again, that was still more than enough for us, but they were both great! The crab cakes were probably the... More

We ate at Little Jack's a few years ago, and thought the food was too greasy. Not so this time! Went on a Sat. night. The line to order was not too long, and the order was prepared quickly enough. We got the mate's platter (shrimp, clam strips, filet of sole, French fries and a roll) and the steamers. Both... More

Can't say enough. Excellent food and staff. We placed our order and with in 15 minutes we had our food. Excellent lobster roll, fish and chips and fried scallops. The onion rings were hot and crispy! My family enjoyed the chowder. We will be back again. Keep up the good work.

Perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing but when the chowder at the seafood restaurant congeals before your eyes we thought that we just went to the wrong restaurant. My daughter ordered crab cakes (2 came and she barely ate 1) and the chowder mentioned above. The chowder was tasteless, much like paste, and neither of us could eat it.... More

Food was fabulous. I had the captains platter, he had steak tips. Both meals were amazing. Batter was very light. Fries were awesome. Steak tips were cooked perfect medium. Beautiful ocean view from the deck. Awesome visit. We will be back!!
