Visited this place before and enjoyed it. Not this time! $12 BUCKS FOR A RUM AND COKE! Are you kidding me? They are more expensive than the other bars on the beach, even Jimmy Buffet's! Service was awful. We sat forever before the server came. Then between giving us a menu, taking our order and receiving our food was forever.... More

I am very sorry that your experience in Grand Turk was a disappointment. Sounds like you were not at Jack's Shack as our basic rum and Coke is only $8 and top shelf rum and Coke is only $10. We can have a rush of cruise ship passengers at our peak part of the day when our servers can be... More

We had heard and read about Jacks Shack on Facebook and thought we would give it a try. Honestly, it's a pretty good hike down the beach from the cruise terminal. We arrived early, and I almost thought I was bothering the guy that set up your chairs and umbrella . He wasn't at all friendly. We had to go... More

Food was basic, reasonable pricing. This place is located close to the cruise ship pier and caters to those folks primarily. Lots of tan, beautiful people, on the beach, plenty of umbrella shade.

Spent a beach day here after hearing about this place for years. $10 get you 2 beach chairs with an umbrella. Beautiful spot with crystal clear turquoise ocean to swim in. Also, the world famous dog mascot, Topher running around keeping a watchful eye on the property. Good food, good drinks and a great spot away from the busy port... More

We stayed on the island for 7 days. During this time, we went to Jack's at least 3 times if not more. Enjoyed food and drinks and fun atmosphere until our last visit. Grand Turk has a large number of stray dogs. Being dog lovers, it is very difficult to see a litter of starving stray pups and not feed... More

Great atmosphere - I thought Jack's was a good change from Margaritaville - the beach was less crowded and way better than by the cruise ship pier - the drinks and local beer were top notch and the jerk chicken was delicious

When the shipped docked, we had an excursion planned and so I thought we would go by Jack's AFTER most everyone else. A PERFECT plan. Though the waiters were a bit harried after TWO big boats had docked, the Jerk Chicken and local I cana Lie beer were SUPERB. A must visit when on Grand Turk

The cook in the kitchen was sweet. The best fries. Chicken and conch. Hmmm. Lots of places to sit and hang out and watch the waves come in. Fresh water to rinse after your swimming and volleyball time.
