Excellent drink and menu selection. We got to eat out on the deck, which provided a great night time experience. Server goes to LaSalle University and was tremendous. I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a change from the ordinary boardwalk grub as the food is great here.

We only had drinks on the outside deck but the food people around us had looked delicious! The deck is very nice and a great view of the boardwalk.

We enjoyed a great outdoor meal at Captain Jack's on the boardwalk at Wildwood. They accommodated our large party with kids and adults easily on the outside patio. The thin crust pizza, burgers, sweet potato fries and drinks were great.

This place is practically the only sit-down restaurant on the Boardwalk that is not a pizza place or a diner. While the nautical theme has its charms, the service is hit or miss (the hostess didn't really seem to want to be there the day we visited). Food is tasty but somewhat overpriced.

I don't like to eat on the boardwalk because it's so overpriced and not very good. This place is no exception. pricey average food. We did get to dine outside which was nice and my daughter had cocktails which she said were fine.

We were looking for a pit stop from our walk on the boardwalk. We stopped for Nachos and a drink. We sat upstairs in the open bar area at a table. The hostess downstairs had a pleasant personality but the 2 upstairs could care less about life. Our waitress (Nora) made up for it with excellent customer care. The Nachos... More

Where to start...Took my family for a quick lunch before the rides. I'll be brief: Chicken tenders were pressed. Nachos were cold with cheez wiz. Hamburger was hardly handmade and hard as nails...not to mention my onion request was met with one outer ring. Fries were good and drinks were cold. A Tip...beware of the paper cups for drinks. Generous... More

The restaurant is located right on the boardwalk which is nice . The menu is very simple yet a little overpriced in my opinion. The biggest let down was there drinks . My girlfriend and I bought the fish bowl which was 25$ both of us couldn't taste any alcohol after drinking the whole thing we didn't even get a... More
