“Bright, great view, fresh food. Good selection of seafood, excellent chowder, friendly staff”
Graham McDonald / August, 2016
“I recently had supper here; this gem in Rocky Harbour (Newfoundland) located in the wild Gros Morne . It is a nice place to eat with delicious food and the people are so warm and welcoming that it seems as if you have known them for years.``
Yuksel Eyyuboglu / Toronto ON July, 2016
“A Must Stop!”
“We love the quaint and artistic atmosphere and the commitment to fresh and delicious food. The menu is varied with lots of wonderful options. The staff is very attentive, friendly and very accommodating with three children. We also popped by for coffee and partridgeberry pound cake and lemon scones which are to die for and the monster cookies are a huge hit with the kids!”

“I came back to Java Jack's more than once and the service is great! I would highly recommend the salmon, the mussels, the salt cod fish cakes, and the sticky toffee pudding. Also, they make an excellent Dark and Stormy which goes along perfectly with the Gros Morne landscape. Love the attention to detail where the works of local artists are on display and for purchase.”
