We had high expectations for this place and they were let down greatly. Old and definitely not fresh shrimp drowned in a too much heavy Alfredo sauce. Just okay meatloaf. Nothing great about the food at all. Also, horrible service. The waitress was very rude....More

This was our first trip to Pamlico Jacks but it won’t be our last. We sat outside on the deck where the kids could explore the “pirate ship” and watched the sunset. Our waitress was friendly and the food was good.

Currently open Tuesday through Saturday, after April 3, we will be open 7 days a week.

Lighter fare ranging from burgers to sandwiches, soups to salads and a variety of appetizers are also available. You'll certainly have no problem selecting your favorite vintage from our extensive wine list. We have had the honor of receiving the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for well over 20 years in a row. You'll not suffer from dehydration either with our wide selection of beers, micro brews and custom cocktail beverages ranging from Jack's Hideaway Rum Jumper to the frozen Mariners' Mango Pain Killer! Our outdoor Rum Jumpers bar is an authentically replicated pirate ship, complete with sails and rigging, which leads you onto our large open-air soundfront deck with spectacular sunset views and live entertainment.
