ABOUT US

Joe Jack – Owner, Chef, Managing Partner

Owner and Executive Chef Joe Jack moved to Puerto Vallarta from San Francisco where he was co-owner and chef of Luna Park, his two phenomenally successful restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Joe has followed his dream of living in Mexico where he opened Joe Jack’s Fish Shack with a cozy bar and restaurant on the main floor and a beautiful open air terrace on the upstairs deck.

As with his previous ventures in the States, Joe’s goal in Vallarta is to create a fun, “casually hip” experience all the while focusing on traditional great tasting seafood with comfort food classics and perfect hand crafted cocktails.

Now going into its tenth year, Joe Jack’s Fish Shack has firmly established itself as a go-to favorite within the eclectic Vallarta restaurant scene.

ALWAYS GREAT
Went tonight, had the fish & chips and they were delicious. Love sitting on top deck. Wait staff was great. Our waitress Joe (Marcella) was wonderful. A must stop whenever in P.V. This was first of several meals here this vacation.

EXCELLENT FISH & CHIPS!
We have been to Joe Jacks many times and always go back. The food is very good with a variety on the menu. Service is excellent with a very pleasant staff. The restaurant is small, on two floors in the restaurant area in Old Vallarta. There is sometimes a wait to get in but it is worth the wait. Always...

GOOD EATS
We have been going to a Joe Jack's since it opened several years ago. The food is consistently very good. The menu is varied and everyone can find something to their liking even those who do not want fish. The service is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.

STILL GOOD
Had lunch here twice during our stay. Had the fish tacos while the wife had the fish sandwich both of which were excellent if to much for us to eat. The next time we shared the fish sandwich. The service as always was very good.
