We had eaten lunch here on a previous trip to Gros Morne (and found it just average), but tried it again for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good enough we returned a second night. Friendly service. Great pan fried cod tongues. Delicious sundried tomato focaccia. Delicious salmon with rice. Decent chowder. Good beet salad. Excellent fish cakes... More

We had dinner here. It was very good. The food was well prepared with local ingredients highlighted. The cafe was also comfortable. Good coffee and baked goods. Good views of the water from the front windows.

We stopped for lunch. Very pleasant spot but there was a bit confusion about dining room upstairs vs a small space with a coffee bar downstairs. Once seated in a nicely decorated room with lots of local artwork we proceeded to order and eat our lunch, Service was excellent and cheerful with good recommendations. As for mussels with feta cheese?... More

We stayed in Norris Point and took a short drive each morning to Java Jacks for breakfast. I ordered a tea latte, a bowl of hot oatmeal and a home made muffin. I was never disappointed. Take out coffee orders was popular. There were only a few restaurants in Rocky Harbour and Java Jacks was pretty much spot on compared... More

The intention to make a fun dining experience is evident with local paintings, funky colours and multiple rooms. A few tables offer a nice view of the harbour. The food however was underwhelming: cooked vegetables were tasty but our fish was dry and overdone, chowder was watery and lacked sizeable seafood chunks. I felt wedged into my table because of...

I was told by some locals that this was the place to get good and unique seafood, but I guess I was here out of season for most everything...except Cod. I loved the service, the food was very good and everyone was friendly and helpful. The dinner menu was much of the same and what I wanted was not available.... More

Fantastic dining room upstairs. If you are 2 and think of it soon enough to make a reservation, shoot for a window table at sunset for great view over the harbour. Fresh salads, delicious mussels, fantastic chicken and salmon. Be sure to put in your order for Sticky Toffee Pudding right off the bat to make sure you don't miss... More

We had dinner here in July while visiting Rocky Harbour. After a 15 minute wait we were shown to our table. My wife has the lobster, which she was very happy with. I ordered cod. I got a very small piece of cod, probably in the 5 ounce range, some potato & veges. The meal was $32.00, I priced out... More

We went to Java Jack's in August, 2016. We were on our way from St. Anthony to Corner Brook, and we didn't have a lot of time to spare. We arrived around 2:00PM and the dining room was closed (although their sign said it was supposed to be open). It didn't matter because they were serving cookies, coffee, soup, chowder... More
