Fodor's Expert Review Jack Mackerel's Island Grill

$$$ Kure Beach and Carolina Beach American

Step through a wood-and-glass hatch door into a dining room where tropical blues and greens accent a bar top fashioned like a wooden boat deck. The Caribbean theme at "Jack Mack's" echoes in the menu, with dishes such as Rasta reef grouper, grilled mahi with sweet chili-lime glaze and, of course, a seafood platter. Lunch means shrimp burgers, oyster po'boys, and burgers. Outdoor seating is available, but there is no ocean view.
