Nothing fancy, just tasty food and cold beer enjoyed over the water out on a dock. Don't Forget Taco Tuesdays!

Smallish place, good drinks, food was enjoyed by all. I had fish and chips with a side of coleslaw. Very small side of coleslaw; but no one else wanted theirs so I ended up with plenty! The only downside to this restaurant was that they were burning incense (I'm assuming to keep the bugs away) and it was overwhelming; like... More

Must do if you are in Hope Town. There is no avoiding it. Food is good and the beer is cold. Everyone is friendly and it's just a fun place. Good spot to meet locals and boaters. Thanks Clint & Jordan.

Great food, good times!. Cap'n Jacks always has something going on and it's great fun to visit on Trivia or Bingo nights. We also enjoy the Saturday mimosa specials! Good food, good drinks, Lana and Jack treat customers like family and the regulars at the bar are a hoot.

This sits right on the water. On Monday's, the have bingo and a happy hour. We just missed it, but stayed for some apps and drinks. Great place to watch the harbor traffic. They have overhead fans to keep the air moving, so it is comfortable.

We happened to go to Cap'n Jacks one evening and it was bingo night! It was fun and some lucky people won a bunch of money! It's a small place and they have outdoor seating that overlooks the harbor. Food was good.

We always enjoy a meal at Cap'n Jack's during our visits to Hope Town. This time we had our children and grandchildren with us. Because my wife was having knee problems making it painful to walk and we were staying at the Lodge, Lana (Cap'n Jack's owner) graciously picked up and returned my wife in her golf cart. The food...
