This is a comfortable place mostly visited by Americans. You want to sit upstairs in the open air. There is no water view. The drinks were pretty watered down but the food was delicious. There is a wonderful red snapper in butter and garlic that you can split with two people.

We set out to eat tacos this evening and ended up at Joe Jack's instead. The grilled Red Snapper was excellent, as was the grilled Mahi-Mahi. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We have been visiting Puerto Vallarta for many years and always eat at least one meal at Joe Jack's. We ate there last night and had another fabulous experience. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The food is excellent. This is definitely one of our go to places in P.V.!

Met a couple on the corner that said to follow them here for a treat and what a treat it was. The food was so delicious. Steak with peppers was fantastic. Melt in your mouth. Fish tacos were so fresh. Loved the mojitos with little mermaids. Service was exceptional. Can't wait to go back again

Try the 3 tostadas with shrimp, avocado and king Louis dressing. They are the greatest! We also enjoyed the sea bass at dinner along with a special that night of fresh strawberry tomatoes and white Mexican chees topped with olive oil. We ate here 3 different times during our week and enjoyed every visit. Drinks are good and reasonably priced.... More

Had looked this up on line and after seeing the reviews just went there. Started out well. The food was good if somewhat overpriced. Among the items we ordered were the hamburger and the five pepper steak. Ordered medium on both. They came cooked to death. Not to make an issue we eat them. Our servicer who started out very...

Fish and Chips are fantastic and the cheese burger is as well. Friday is all you can eat Fish and Chips. Great Mojitos and the wine is very good. Service is excellent.

We ran on to this restaurant while walking around town . I remembered reading about their famous Red Snapper on Yelp and told my husband we have to stop here and eat lunch. We sat upstairs where we were able to view the street below. And yes, we ordered the Red Snapper, which was very good. We also ordered shrimp... More

We had a great lunch at Joe Jack's up on the roof top terrace yesterday. The fish sandwich and traditional ceviche were both good and the butterscotch budin (pudding) was to die for! They also have a small but good wine selection with two excellent wines from Casa de Piedra--one of the very best wineries in the Valle de Guadalupe... More
