My wife and I went to this restaurant and gave a try through a deal on Travelzoo. We got disappointed from the beginning to the end.\r
First, they did not want to take reservation on the phone, yet it was required on Travelzoo voucher on

I enjoy their food here. Lots of mouth watering flavor and I like the super fast way they get the food out to you, without feeling hurried. More accurately, I think I should say that the food comes out in successions, at the perfect timing.

Went last weekend and had the shrimp soup (12 large shrimp in a yummy rich and spicy broth). Just couldn't wait to dip the french bread into it! I was told the owner is a relative of the now closed restaurants "Killer Shrimp". Oh it brought back fond memories. Going again this weekend, can't get enough!!

The food is delicious here. The menu does not have very many choices but that kind of makes it unique and who cares when the items they have are great. Frankly, I always just get the Jack Snack - tasty, spicy shrimp in a sauce with great dipping bread!

Absolutely delicious food, good service & good atmosphere - it is clean & comfortable. Not very centrally located if you wanted to go out after words.

Choose your flavoring of seafood and enjoy the results at this small eatery. Friendly staff make this a good experience. The drinking options are also great.

My BF and I stopped by JackShrimp when we were looking for a new place on the beach to it. We were let in right away even though it was Saturday night and had some kickass sangria to start with (no fruit in the carafe, though, I think they drain it). The bread was very iffy and if I were them, I?d change to some cornbread to start for a more Cajun flavor. However, I was blown away by their soups?so hearty and yummy! I had the crab bisque and BF ordered gumbo and I ended up scarfing both those down. My entree was the seared salmon salad?very flavorful. But the desert?the banana raspberry creme brulee?took the cake. So perfect, so creamy, so rich. Great new place to hop into!

Pros: Soups, sangria and dessert

Cons: Didn't like the bread. Tasted like Albertson's stuff you buy at 4 pm.

My husband and I like to dine out a lot, so when we find a great place we like to tell everybody we know. However, when we have a really bad experience, we make sure that the entire world knows about it.
The food is great, but the service is atrocious. We've been there several times for the food, optimistic that maybe we had a one time bad experience, but were disappointed to find the same horrible service.

To me good service is as important as good food. I have not gone there in a long time, because I dread seeing the hostess & waitresses' attitudes - they'll ignore you for as long as they can and then they'll put on sour faces - as if you are bothering them. I wrote a letter to the owner, but the rude manager/waitress intercepted it. I hope the owner - Jack - monitors his employees better - bad service and/or bad food can damage any business.. These comments are valid for the Aliso Viejo location only , as I have not tried the other locations. Quite frankly I'm afraid of encountering the same type of service - rudeness with capital "R".

Pros: Jack shrimp bowl and salads

Cons: Service, Service, Service (from the hostess, to the waiters, to the manager)

All the food was excellent!! Service was very nice! There's also a great bar upstairs that would be great to have parties in. There's an inclosed patio area that sits on PCH across from the ocean. great atmosphere! this location only has beer and wine, but there are two other location in the oc

Pros: excellent food, great service, plenty of parking

If you like Cajun Flavor, and a laid back ambiance this is the place. The original location on PCH in Newport, and newer locations in Irvine and Aliso Viejo. I highly recommend the signature dish, "Jack Shrimp"...a spicy soupy shrimp dish and french bread...THE BEST!

PROS: Great Atmosphere
CONS: Can't eat there everyday, would get expensive!
