Cap’n Jack (born Jack Russell) is an eighth generation Hope Town’ian. Growing up in Hope Town, Jack lived in and on the water. While spending most of his youth fishing, as a young man Jack became a fisherman for a local restaurant. Jack and Lana met in 1976, married in 1982 and two children, Misty and Clint, followed. After many life adventures with two young children, Jack and Lana filled a lifetime dream and bought a small take-out shop in downtown Hope Town turning it into Cap’n Jack’s.
From humble beginnings, a 15 by 10 foot structure and some picnic benches, Cap’n Jack’s has been through numerous renovations to make it what it is today. A pillar in the community for 28 years Cap’n Jack’s has grown with Hope Town but still has the same charm as when it first opened the doors. More than just a bar, more than just a restaurant, Cap’n Jack’s is a special place for good times, good memories and good friends. Truly a family owned and operated business Cap’n Jack’s welcomes you to join us and be a part of our next chapter.
From our Family to yours,
Cap’n Jack, Lana, Misty and Clint
