Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This time at Jacks Ridge it was the perfect evening with my extended family. The food was simply delicious and the best Lapu Lapu I have ever tasted. We had an excellent waiter who was professional and attentive. He ran everywhere and well deserving a...tip. Views as usual were magnificent and the evening was so enjoyable. Toilets were clean and there is a little playground for the children and some wonderful places for photos. One tricky thing is taxis so you must be a little organised.More

Go for the view not the food. Food was terrible and very pricy compared with other places in Davao. The calamari was soggy, chicken tough, pork BBQ cold. The Davao chorizo was pretty good to be fair. It’s a beautiful place to walk around and...enjoy the views of the city, especially at night.More

Good place for family dinner or even for small event party with overlooking view of the City. They have a variety of dishes.

Visited JR again after several years, this time with friends from Luzon. The view, the food, beverage, the ambience, and of course, the people - - all make Jack's Ridge a place one must visit when in Davao. And yes, there is no entrance fee!...😁More

As we had our field trip during our high school, I can forget this place where I can see the lights of the City. It will be a perfect destination to those who wants to relax and want to breath for a moment.

There are a lot of resto to choose for dining. It offers a good look of the city, we went here in the morning so view is still good but i think it would be majestic if it is at night since you could see...the city lights while dining. There is also a japanese tunnel where you could go inside but trashes are scattered which makes your trip inside a bit uncomfortable.More

Best place to hang out. City lights are very beautiful. By mode of transportation. You should ride a taxi

Jack's Ridge is a regular destination particularly for those who want a view of the city whilst dining. However through the years my satisfaction and enjoyment of the their food and ambiance has waned. It is now less attractive and I would have other places...to recommend to both visitors and locals.More

Good restaurant to eat. Overlooking a part of Davao City. You can enjoy the flickering City Lights down below. But, you can also enjoy with mucho gusto their foods especially seafoods. Sometimes, staying on top of a hill or on a high elevated place make...us feel good.More

Its a bit far from the city, we paid around Php 250-300 for the taxi ride from Samal Seaport.. You'll have a good view of the city once you're up there.. Its a bit cold, so make sure you bring your jacket.. Sit in the...inner part of the restaurant as the winds are strong and can turn your plates upside down.. We ordered shanghai rice, tuna belly, sunigang, sisig, pakbet... we only liked the tuna belly..More

I/we have been visiting this restaurant for almost 20 years and always enjoyed the food and ambience, even if parking was difficult. When visiting there this time the guard informed us that everyone of our party of 7 had to pay a 50 peso entrance...fee even though we were going to be dining. We won't be visiting again with that new policy.More

We went here for my grandsons birthday along with their friends. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. Ordered a number of different dishes to share. Then after dinner we watch the fireworks and enjoyed looking at Davao at night.
