Jack's Restaurant & Lounge

Potola Hotel & Spa - Monterey Bay

Ideal for any occasion, Jacks Restaurant offers the finest local cuisine the Central Coast has to offer. As part of the Portola Hotel & Spa’s green initiatives, Jacks supports local farmers, fishermen, ranchers and dairymen. This ensures that not only are the ingredients we select authentically fresh, but grown and harvested in a sustainable and responsible way. Indulge in a European breakfast buffet. Known for having the best salad bar on the Monterey Peninsula, try Jacks for lunch on their outdoor heated patio or sit in their nautically-inspired, fireside dining room. Venture back for an evening of gourmet delights, created by Executive Chef, Jason Giles. In addition to exquisite entrees and appetizers Jacks recently unveiled a new Oyster Bar and Live Action Kitchen where guests can choose from three different oyster options including Baked Oysters Rockefeller, Seasonal Oysters on the Half Shell with a Shallot Mignonette and Barbecued Oysters served with a Chipotle Wash. Pair your meal with a selection from their extensive wine list that highlights Monterey County's diverse viticulture tradition, or complement your selection with handcrafted coffee from Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting Company, the only Certified Organic coffee roasting company on the Monterey Peninsula. At Jacks Restaurant, you'll find a deliciously unique Monterey flavor and a cozy coastal locale, all in historic downtown.
