Jack's Shack is a lively beach hut on Grand Turk where locals meet to enjoy a drink and some grilled food. Tourists who happen upon the shack enjoy the authentic island experience, friendly environment, and strong drinks.


Jack's Shack has a great Jamaican chef and seafood chef who serve up fabulous jerk chicken, local specials and seafood including conch, filleted fish, and shrimp. They have lobster in season and whole fish when available from the local fishermen. Chef Leroy is known as the singing chef and is somewhat of a local celebrity.

Jack's Shack is a bar and grill that offers Caribbean and Jamaican cuisines, as well as chicken. The style of the restaurant and its dishes is considered by most to be very casual.


Due to the reasonably spacious measurement of the dining facility people may expect to steer clear of prolonged waits during peak hours. Plus, it is an ideal dining facility if you and your traveling companions are arriving with a large group. As an extra bonus, Jack's Shack is located right on the water,

Jack's Shack is little more than a tiki hut with patio furniture (umbrellas included to protect from the sun) on a wooden deck that leads out onto the beach. The restaurant is famous for its local flavor on a beautiful sandy beach. The owners and knowledgeable staff are happy to attend to their guests enjoyment of Grand Turk from service on the beach, showers and restrooms to great drinks at the tiki bar, and of course the fragrant aromas of the delicious jerk grille to our gift shoppe we try to make your visit special.
