Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Private Dining, Reservations
Description: Naples Harbour offers two distinct dining and event venues. Jack’s River Bar celebrates life on the Gordon River and is so well hidden away that Jack’s motto is, “They’ll never find you here”. Jack’s offers a funky, comfortable atmosphere where the action is usually centered around the rockin’ pool bar featuring some of Naples’ most popular musicians. Jack’s menu is a tribute to American comfort food, served in huge portions at great prices. Enjoy drink specials each weekend, wild and crazy contests and events. Bring your bathing suit and your appetite, and you’ll be right at home at Jack’s River Bar. For a more intimate and elegant dining experience, try our sister restaurant Gordon's on the River, located just upstairs from Jack's.

“AWESOME”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

I love coming here. The food is awesome wether you are just craving some buffalo wings or a big meal. It seems like no matter what we order it comes out fast and great. Sometimes they have live music playing which just adds to the great ambience. The service is outstanding.

“Beautiful gem tucked behind the airport”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My girlfriend and i are are semi regulars here and for a good reason. The staff is always pleasant and attentive and we love the prices on the poolside drinks. The also have high end dining in their upstairs facility "Gordon's on the River". Both are a must try if you are in the area. I recommend the crab quesadilla.

“Oh boy.......”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Billed as a private club yet open to the public if you walk in, we visited Jacks last night.
Kids throwing footballs around with in striking distance of patrons. a bartender who was VERY nice but disappeared inexplicably for 15 to 20 minutes at a clip.

Music thru the nights on Fridays but stopped at 6pm on a SATURDAY??

A pork sandwich was was HUGE but devoid of any seasoning what-so-ever.
Did I mention kids throwing footballs around next to the dining area?

When it was time for another cocktail, the bartender said "would you like a clean glass? REALLY?? I had to get my own napkin for my drink BOTH times.

Nope, no qualified, nor educated management here.

My first ever negative experience of this caliber.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had a great time at Jack's River Bar today. We sat in the screened in area by the pool. The food was excellent, service was first rate from the minute we were greeted at the door to the time we paid the bill - which was very reasonable. We would go back.

“Great burger but not much else!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Out of the way by car but with GPS it can be found. You must be made a temporary member first prior to eating. Interesting, but made painless . Family poolside dining experience. Great burger,but not much to add about experience.
