What's That Smell... Deliciousness at Jack's Seafood Shack

Montclaire, NJ


This Seafood Shack isn't nestled seaside, but you'll never know that once inside!

The decor and freshness of the menu whisk you away to feel like you're dining on the coast. The MENU is simple but has enough choices to make every seafood lover find what they're looking for.


I wanted to order it all but limited myself to try:

Shrimp Cocktail (1 was weird textured, freezer burnt like, causing me to chew for what seemed like forever).

Fried Whole Belly Clams - delicious.

Lobster Grilled Cheese- it was stuffed with lobster, I didn't want my sandwhich to end!

Lobster Bomb- 8 ounces of lobster in a bread bowl, topped with lobster bisque - seemed more like a pound of lobster, all of which was prepared perfectly.


It's also a bring your own booze establishment.... umm... YAY!

Verdict: Not sure I'd go out of my way to go back, but loved the experience, and would definitely return if in town. Food was all tasty (except for the one weird shrimp), made me feel like I was on vacation. Staff was nice, service was prompt, and bathrooms were clean.
