Jack’s is an oyster bar, but more than that, it’s a restaurant that prides itself on the creativity and sustainability of its seafood offerings. The menu is heavy on working-class seafood dishes with a globally inspired, fine-dining twist — such as lobster poutine, pretzel bun lobster-roll sliders, kampachi tiradito. Still, many of the best dishes are clean-tasting and comparatively simple: buttery, crisp-edged oyster dressing (like Thanksgiving stuffing) and one of the best bowls of clam chowder in town. And for many customers, the restaurant is mainly a place to eat oysters on the half shell on the waterfront. It’s easy to run up a large bill though, so budget-minded diners should plan to arrive before 6 p.m. to take advantage of the daily $1.50 oyster deal.
