I had originally experienced the food at JackSHRIMP in Newport Beach many, many times...and was very sad when it closed. By dumb luck, I stumbled into Campus JAX last April and found that this was Jack's newer place.
The JackSHRIMP & Bread is a must every single time whether as an appetizer, main course or to take home. The Jambalaya (with shrimp or not) is a real find after trying so much unauthentic versions of the dish elsewhere...all over the country. It is the perfect blend of meats, onions, peppers and spices...perfect heat.
The pulled pork is as good as I could do myself if I had the 22 hours it normally takes me to make it...so much simpler just going to Campus Jax. It is always fresh and delicious...and convenient.
Suffice it to say that everything...everything...I have ever had at Campus JAX has been off-the-charts delicious...I have never been disappointed.
The service here is completely on-point even at the busiest times. Courtney is among the finest servers I have ever encountered at any restaurant at any price. I have had many other excellent servers as well when Courtney is not working.
We go there for the food and generally have not gone for the bands. BUT we are always entertained if we are there and there is a show. We have seen everything from rock to country to dance....always a good vibe.
Lastly, parking is easy, plentiful and safe.
You can tell Jack Jasper is a detail-oriented owner committed to excellence and that reflects in every aspect of the excellent experience we ALWAYS have at Campus JAX.
