We stopped in at Cap'n Jacks because we used to live on this island and it's one of the places we always go to. The food was as good as ever, and the service fairly fast, considering they were slammed. They have the best harbour-view...More

We ate lunch outside on the deck. The fish sandwich was fresh and the fries were great. We were even greeted with a manitee swimming around the deck which made for a fun lunch spot for our son.
