Hit this spot on a Friday night. From the moment we got there, the owner, staff and locals were welcoming and made us feel at home. The place was packed, the owner gave up his seat for us and the bartender "Ceasar" was crackin jokes and whippin up awesome drinks almost immediately. Great service and live music, excellent drinks and the bar nachos are a "must have".

Hole in the wall spot with great nachos and drinks. We went in the early afternoon and watched football.

We were there during "car week" and we were looking forward to a quiet drink off the beaten path. We found this place and it was the first night for the fire pit tables on the patio. We were served drinks by a very good waiter and met the owner. On Sunday night after the Pebble Beach show, we were tired and wanted burgers so we went back. The bartender and server did a great job with our group of 6. Will go back.

My friend had been to Jack London's before so he insisted we stop in for a "Horny Toad" drink. It was very good and must warn you it's very potent too. They had live music that night so we stayed until midnight to listen and great people watching. Quite a few locals seem to go there as well.

Had visited the Jack London Bar & Grill several years ago on a trip to Carmel. We decided to give it a try again, as we were looking for a good, inexpensive meal. We were not in the mood to eat at any of the extremely pricey, and pretentious, places that abound in Carmel. I have to say that we were disappointed with our visit. The place is surrounded by construction right now, but that is not the fault of the restaurant. We decided to sit outside under the trees, as it was a beautiful, warm evening. We could easily hear the live music from inside the bar. The problem was that the service was not good. Our waitress took our order for drinks and food together. Someone else, who looked like he might be one of the cooks, brought our sodas and food to us. The waitress only showed up again to bring our bill. She never checked in to see if we wanted refills on our drinks or how the food was. Speaking of the food, it wasn't anything special. The place is supposed to be a pub, but they really don't serve "pub" food. Our burgers and mexican food were good, but we could have done just as well at any of the local chain food places out on the highway. I don't think we'll be going here again on any of our Carmel visits.
