This restaurant recently reopened and we checked it out, looking for a place close to home where we could have a few beers and food, and reduce the risk of driving home while blitzed. I watched food coming out of the kitchen, and it looks pretty tasty. We had an order of Nachos and were getting ready to order additional food...What comes in the next paragraph explains why we didn't, and won't!

This place seems pretty popular with Bikers, and for the most part, they act like Gentlemen. "Bob",on the other hand, a daily regular at Jack Willies riding a harley with a blue tank with flames, seems to think that every conversation at the Bar is "his" conversaton and that he can break into private conversations anytime he pleases. Worse, is that he thinks he has anything other than childish gibberish to say. He also, thinks that he is a "real Biker" as he wants everyone to know how many horsepower his bike has, reduntantly, to the point, I thought someone was going to throw him into the water.

Why the management of this place allows Morons like this to sit and breath his horrible breath on everyone is a mystery. "Bob" obviously hasn't been to a dentist in a while, nor does he seem to practice any daily hygenic tasks when it come to his mouth other than rinsing it out with cheap beer. (talk about green teeth!)

When we can go back to this restaurant without having to listen to "Bob" brag about how unique his motorcycle is, or having Bob follow my wife into the Ladies room making obscene comments, we will come back to Jack Willies and actually buy some food. Unlike "Bob" who doesn't purchase food but mooches beers from people who buy them for him just so he'll go away!

Went there for appetizers and drinks. Had nachos which were made from home made potato chips, awesome. Loaded with toppings. Drinks reasonable priced. Same layout. They said they redid the kitchen. Closes early for now, until business picks up. Hopefully the food stays good. Service was good.

Went to Jack Willie's for dinner when I heard it re-opened. Had a cobb salad that was not very good and the service was poor at the best. The waitress told our table that the kitchen was really messed up - maybe the management should do a better job training their employees on how to address their customers and deal with issues. Also the smell from the water was awful although that is not the restaurants fault it was quite disgusting. I won't be back any time soon.

This place is close to my house. It closed for quite a while and I'm not sure why. It did get some "dirty dining" reviews from the local TV station, maybe that's why, HOWEVER, I heard there are new owners, previously from Crystal River who's family has owned restaurants and I can't wait to get over there and try the new place out. It used to draw quite a crowd on weekends with live music (we could hear across the bay in our back yard).

We always have liked Jack Willies for its seafood, casually outdoor dining and its convenience to our house. The restaurant had been closed for awhile, but it is open again. Same name. Not sure if the ownership is the same, but we are looking forward to once again having some seafood and a gin and tonic outside on the tiki deck.
