“A new favorite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

Captain Jack's is a new restaurant located upstairs at "The Wharf" shopping complex on Front Street near the end of "town". There have been several other restaurants there over the years, but I think this one will be a success. They seem to be owned by the same people as Cool Cat Cafe, wish we love. They have a wide selection of things to eat and their prices are on the reasonable end of the "resort price spread". My husband and I both like Philly sandwiches and hadn't had one for a very long time, so we both got the same thing. Our waitress told us the Philly was their most ordered item. They cost $12. There are coupons around that give you a free dessert with two meals. The offering that night was cheese cake or you could get an ice cream at the shop downstairs - apparently also owned by the same group. We opted for the cheesecake. It was good - nothing to write home about, but then I'm not a big fan of cheesecake. Everything is a la carte. Add fries for $2, a side salad for $3, or carrots & celery with ranch for $3. The sandwiches range in price from $8 to $12. Several have the option of adding cheese or bacon for an extra $1 or $2. We saw several items passing by our table and they all looked very good. They have a French Dip for $10 which went to a table near by and looked delicious. They serve Breakfast, Lunch Dinner and Late night Specials. They are open from 8 am to 11:45 pm. The atmosphere was good. The staff helpful and friendly. We liked it a lot and will definitely go back.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

I didn't have very high expectations when coming to Captqin Jacks. Perhaps the pirate theme made ms think the restaurant would be all "theme"'with less focus on good food and/or service. But I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great. They have a nice large open-air P
Poarch; the service was great - they were very accommodating to our 1 year old; and the food was fresh, tasted good!

“Fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

We ate at Captain Jack's early in the evening on Sunday. Like everywhere on Maui, our server was great - just really friendly and fun. Also like lots of places, he was chatty with his other tables, so we had to wait a bit for drinks but we didn't mind too much. The food was above average, and the prices were in line with what you expect. The atmosphere was the best part. Football on great TVs, the water in the distance, and a huge pirate setup gave this place something for everyone.

“Great value for a big breakfast.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

Open upstairs restaurant with a great street/ocean view to people/boat watch. Daily $5. Breakfast Specials were large and plenty to eat. Specials ended at 10:00. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside to restaurant that we could see was the overpowering smell of deodorizer in the washrooms. Other than that, we were very pleased overall.
