Seafood
Maine lobster is such a delicacy, it's delicious, simple - the best seafood anywhere in many people's view. And Maine lobster is the best of the best. Its the first thing on peoples' list when they visit Maine-eat a fresh Maine lobster. BUT YOU CAN'T VACATION IN MAINE EVERY DAY! -so we decided to bring it to you in Edgewater, New Jersey. Come and pick your own live lobster, let us prepare it for you. We are BYOB (Beer and Wine only)!

Food was delicious, our waiter very helpful and friendly. We had crab, lobster fritters, pan seared shrimp, lobster tails and the sliders. We will definitely be back, highly recommend Jack’s.

All lobster dishes were poor quality lobster and overcooked. As we’re the steamers... small chewy and inedible. Corn made my daughters hand break out in a rash. Salad was lackluster and soggy.

Lobster dinner was great! Just enough portion. Lobster was cooked right, soft & delicious. Our server was attentive even though it was busy for Valentine’s celebration. The music fits the occasion and we can hear it well even if so many customers. Thank God for open table because we had no wait time. We’ll definitely return to this local restaurant, 7 minutes from our house!!!- Liza & Bob

Business was brisk on Valentine's Day -- first time at this location. We both opted for the lobster special. The large bowl of lobster bisque was wonderful, best I have ever had in NJ. The lobster was good, accompanied by corn on the cob clearly cooked hours earlier and microwaved. I had to flag down the waitress to ask for butter and salt. Cole slaw was mediocre. We decided to split the special dessert, a red velvet whoopie pie, but should have skipped it as it was overcooked (hard crust) and bland. Not very impressed for all we spent on dinner out that evening...

Yes. Have been to this location three other times. Consistently good seafood dishes and anything lobster related, including the lobster bisque soup.

Not a fan of the potato salad.

Hi. Thank you so much for revisiting our location. As I'm writing to you I contacted my Mgr. and Had her taste and fix any problems with the potato salad. As far as the cappucino machine, we have espresso and looking into cappucino. The next time you're in please ask for a taste of the potato salad before ordering to make sure it's to your liking. Hope to see you soon. Jack P.S sorry for the late response

This was my first time here and I was very happy with the service. The arugala salad was enough for 3 people and the fish tacos were excellent. I would definitely go back!

We were visiting from Philadelphia and luckily stumbled on this amazing restaurant. The seafood was so fresh and prepared perfectly. There’s a lovely liquor store directly across the street—it’s a BYOB. So delicious!

The restaurant is nice and clean. Service is very good. Ordered the signature dish, Lobster Roll. The sandwich was dry. The homemade potato chips were very good. Had the New England Clam Chowder in a bread bowl which was also very good.

Just what I've been looking for. A place where you can get a cold lobster roll or a hot lobster. BYOB makes it better. Waiter was attentive place is bright and fun.
