Great food served with verve and prepared quickly. Best "PoBoy" around. Friendly, and with real Louisiana atmosphere. We go here for lunch quite often -- never disappointed in the food, service or value.

I have been going to Jack Shrimp since they were on PCH... The BEST New Orleans style food west of Louisianna...

This place might not be the most authentic Cajun food around but that being said, its WAS pretty good. I say WAS because it's no longer in operation so telling you guys what my favorite dish was is kinda pointless. (hey, I found this information out mid review so I decided I might as well finish it)

Average is the best way to describe my experience with family of 4. We drive by the place all the time and decided to stop in for dinner. Service was so-so, food was good but nothing to rave about. If you like Joe's Crab Shack you'll like this place.

This place is located on the pacific highway and has great seafood dishes. It is pretty small, but is not too crowded and has high quality food.

The meals here are delicious from Shrimp Jambalaya to Steak every meal is cooked to perfection. The red bean soup is also very tasty. My wife and I love this place so much that we talked Jack into hosting our rehearsal lunch here. Service is top notch. Jack is down to earth and easy to converse with. He let Hollywood... More

One of my favorite places to have lunch or supper when I want sea food is Jack Shrimp. The staff is really nice and the service is good, but the food, how I love the Jammin Jambalaya or the Voodoo Chicken Pasta. There are so many awesome things to eat here that trying to decide what to get leaves you... More

When we got here we knew that there would be at least an hour wait, so yes we were expecting that. The worst part of it all is that after waiting 45 minutes we went to check and see how much longer. Turns out they gave our table away to another party of four, never calling our name or anything.... More

We took a group of 30 to this restaurant and they were very accommodating. We ate upstairs, which was great and a private space just for us. The food was good and so was the service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful to make sure we had a great time. They succeeded. One thing I definitely have to say is... More

Enjoyable food, server lady must have been having a bad day. Snippy and down right rude. Left without finishing meals. Couldn't get the rest of our order.
