Our Ingredients


Jack loved Northern California for its beaches. We love it for its food, and for good reason too. Regional ingredients drive our menu: Our fresh-caught seafood meets the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch sustainability standards, our cage-free eggs come from the Glaum Egg Ranch, and our seasonal produce is sourced from a number of area farmers. It sets us apart from other downtown Santa Cruz restaurants; why go global when local does just fine?

Complimentary self or valet parking with restaurant validation.

Signature Drinks


Santa Cruz sunsets, drink in hand — after hours spent in the lineup, there's no better way to relax. When it's time to hang your wetsuit up for the evening, make your way to Jack's; our collection of signature cocktails makes for a fitting toast to a successful day of surfing.

HAPPY HOUR 3:30PM - 5:30PM

25% off all appetizers, well drinks, wines by the glass and draught beer.
