We stopped in (by boat) for appetizers and drinks. They were passing out BINGO cards at a cost, we did not stay for BINGO but the prizes seemed much better then we were expecting.

There was a quiz going on and we joined in. The place was full of people clearly having fun. The service was great and drinks arrived before we finished the last one. Staff were cheerful and friendly. Hint: sit on the east side of the restaurant in the afternoon to avoid the sun if you're already sunburned! ;-)

We had previously been here but not to eat, so we decided to have a lunch here which was very pleasant. I had a chicken quesadilla and my husband a cheese and bacon toasted sandwich. Both were good (quesadilla was quite small but ok for a lunch) setting is brilliant and so are the Pina Colada's

Tuesday nights they offer buy one get one on Margheritas. Tonight in addition they featured 2 fish tacos for $6 and 2 beef tacos for $5. The service was perfect and the food was excellent. Of course, you can't beat the ambiance.

Boat right up to the dock, and enjoy a great meal. The Coconut Shrimp was excellent. I enjoyed sitting outside and watching the boats motor by.

Stopped by for some drinks during a tour of town. The beer was cold, and my companions' drinks were good, but the service was prompt but uninspiring.

This is a very casual restaurant. The service was amateurish. The food was so-so. The lobster tail had been grilled so much that it had become quite tough and burned. Probably would not visit again.

Cap'n Jacks has tables over the water in Hope Town. You can tie up your boat to the docks or walk. Food is good and service is pretty quick. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with nightly specials offered. Fish sandwich was good.

Eating out on a pier was fun. The Jerked fish was great and I am picky. My friend who has spent time in Jamaica said the taste was authentic.
