The best fried seafood on the NH seacoast, this is our family’s favorite place for fried clams and such. Great beach ambience, comparatively affordable with lots of dining space.

We had a early dinner here, and we were very disappointed. The captains platter was just o.k. We had lightly battered fish, 1 app. 6 oz., and the other fish was very small. It had app. 6 whole belly clams and some clam strips. The...More

An ad for Little Jack’s Seafood Restaurant in a weekly newspaper magazine brought about my lunchtime outing to eat there. I liked the location. It was about a mile north Ashworth by-the-Sea where the one-way traffic begins. It was away from the congested casino/arcade area...More

If you like fresh seafood you must try Little Jack's. I must warn you though there usually is a line of people waiting to order. The service is generally very good and the food is worth the wait

I observed from other travelers photos that there is an upper deck, but just to be sure it can be exculsively for your event, I would recommend calling them. Happy times ahead for you and your friends!

Since this restaurant tends to change owners frequently and their policies change frequently I would call the restaurant for a more solid answer to your question.

It is possible to walk to the restaurant. The walk is enjoyable especially if your on vacation and would like to see some of the places you would not pay attention to while driving. It is approximately a one mile walk.
