    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.

    Stopped by Happy Jacks yesterday for lunch with the wife. Initially ordered the American burger, fries and lasagna, but was informed that the cook wasn't there yet, so I ordered the fish 'n chips. Waitresses were attentive and had no issues regarding the service. In fact, the service was so good that I slipped the waitress a tip when the wife wasn't looking. Food was quite good. Noise level (from the highway traffic) was not so good.

    Hey Mikala, Thanks for popping in. One of those days here in paradise, one cook has left, family problems ( looking for a replacement ) and one was late. Oh the joys of work lol.... :banghead:

    We cant do much for the traffic but i think people can see we've made an effort. We are turning into a fun neighborhood bar, if people want good honest food and meet easy going people they know where to come. :thumbsup:

    Im now arranging poker and billiard comps, have live music nights and we are even putting together trips for customers. Today is a Pot Luck beach bbq and next one will hopefully be Dolphin watching in Bias. People can rent a boat together and share the cost of having a nice day out. Only P200 each, we meet up and drive in convoy and bring a packed lunch. Just come on in leave your name for one of the events. :woot:

    I have to give a big mention Taco Tayo, its a breath of fresh air working with another bar and helping each other. The Sunday day trips are arranged together with them so customers/friends of each bar get together for fun days out :cool:

    Glad you thought the food and service was ok and hope everyone can appreciate what we are trying to do at Happy Jacks. Thanks for your feedback :smile:

    Sounds like A place I will not go to and spend any of my money at. They need to be trained and monitored or fired and new staff hired other wise they will just keep acting like this.

    I don't want to start a war of words here but I just don't Understand how your Posts can continue on the negative if have not been there and experienced things Firsthand, There have been many Positive reviews from people that have been and enjoyed, I take it you haven't?

    Do we not say, 'Don't knock things if you have not Tried them?'

    Hey, They are all trained and i talk and keep an eye on them as much as possible. All have previously worked at resorts or restaurants in the past before starting at Happy Jacks. The majority of customers are very happy with the staff, a positive attitude gets positive feedback...... :wink:

    There are some miserable people out there.
    You don't need that type around.
    They will only bring everyone down.
