“Casual and Somewhat Sterile”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

We had dinner this week at Jack's. The restaurant is very generic, somewhat sterile in appeaarance but also as clean as can be. The menu had fish and steaks. The Fish and Chips with Halibut was great, as was the clam chowder. The steak - ribeye - was okay, nothing to write home about. Staff courteous and attentive. They had a great children's menu. This place is nothing special, however. Better choices in a cool area.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Nice place inside and out. Service was good. Food was decent. We had filet mignons and both were cooked perfectly but a bit too much pepper and definately too much salt. The cook should have saved some spices for the steamer clams. Very bland broth. Serving size a little on the lite side. Salad bar won some kind of local award so I took a look at it and was not that impressed. Didn't even look fresh. Just your "very average" place. Not great but not terrible.

“Not very customer friendly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We wanted to move to a different table to get away from a very annoying, noisy family at the booth next to ours and were told we couldn't do that because the table was set for a larger group -- even though the restaurant wasn't even half full!

The meal was adequate (three different entrees) but only that. Sure wish we had been able to get into Tidal Raves like we had originally planned. No recommendation from us!

“Good food, good price,good service. just what I needed.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

The steamers were great! We also had chili and chowder, both were good. We have to rely on tripadvisor and yelp and everyones reviews while vacationing since we have run into some very poor restaurants. This was a nice break from the touristy places.

“We walked out.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We stopped in for a burger and fries on Saturday 8/18/12 around 4pm, and were the only customers in the restaurant. We ordered the crab balls appetizer and burgers and fries. After our appetizer we waited, and waited, and waited for our dinner to arrive. The bartender/waitress came by our table with apologies, saying the cook accidently put our ticket on the "done" pile after only completing our app. She promised it'd only be about 10 minutes, so we stayed. After 20 minutes a different waitress arrived at our table asking, "are you waiting for your bill?" I told her, "we haven't even eaten yet." She made no apologies as she walked away from our table and we decided then to just leave. In all, we were there an hour and they couldn't pull together a simple burger and fries order. We will not be back.
