Jan's on the Beach offers traditional breakfast and lunch options, and a dinner menu featuring a "Seafood and more" menu. Everything fresh made, to order, from scratch. Come taste the difference!
I came in with a friend during one of our rare summer sunny days. We wanted to find a place with a new view of the beach on the patio and we found Jan's. Staff was friendly and attentive but mindful of the fact that we did not want to be interrupted every 1 minute. We ordered tapas and drinks and we enjoyed it all - shared the fish n' chips snack style, pulled pork, calamari bowl. Prices were reasonable and the portions were fair. The patio was set up nicely and we had a great view of the water. The interior seemed nice enough too but can't say for certain since we never ate inside. I'm glad I found this venue and would visit again/recommend to friends.
I am so glad we decided to try Jans on the Beach. My boyfriend and I usually go to Uli's on the strip but decided to try something different. We were greeted and sat right away, also with a hello from the Chef (really cool open kitchen concept). They had Sangria on special so we had a jug of that, it was delicious, lots of fresh fruit in it too! yumm.
I ordered the Prawn trio, I have never had a dish like that, I got 3 different vibrant salads with 9 prawns, each a different flavour. My boyfriend got the Fish and Chips, of course, which he loved! It was in bite size pieces for dipping which was different, but enough for a meal.
I would totally recommend Jans! She even came out after our meal and asked how everything was and even got to know us a bit, super friendly staff, clean, awesome food! oh and beautiful bathrooms !!
You gotta try it !!
Had a girls night here this past Saturday as it was a warm evening, and the patio here looked less busy than the rest on the strip. We walked in waiting to be seated and the waitress said to sit wherever we wanted. It looked clean from what we saw. The cheapest drinks were $7 for draft, so we all ordered a Stella. All four of our glasses were dirty, so we asked for new glasses to which the waitress took back the drinks and clearly was mad for having to waste product. Big deal, draft is cheap. We looked over the menu and were told only some items were available as it's now dinner time. Nothing under $15 which is pricy for tapas! My friend wanted fish and chips and the waitress asked the woman cook if she could order, which she replied "I guess, but I'm very busy so it'll be a while". Well, there was only 3 other tables inside, can't be too busy. I ordered the med chicken, friend had strawberry salad, other friend had fish bites (seriously? fish nuggets???), and the other had cod cheeks with rissoto. Despite being one of only 4 tables, the waitress never came back to our table except to deliver the food, which took 30 mins!!! Everything was cold by now. We decided as we were going out after, we didn't want to wait another 30 mins to order things again. So for 2 drinks each, cold food, poor attitude from the cook and waitress, we wasted over $120 including tip. None of us will be back! As we walked out, we noticed Jolly Rogers was super busy, so that'll be our next venture to another restaurant on the strip. Can't be any worse than Jans.
I thought that the staff was great, the food was delicious, the wait was not long at all, and the atmosphere was really fun! They had a great menu (much of their ingredients were either local or home-made) and their patio seats have one of the best views of the beach I've ever seen. The place itself was very clean and cozy. I would definitely give it 5 stars out of 5 and I will definitely be returning to try out other menu options. Really easy to find as it is just across from the pier. One of the highlights of my trip to the beach and a must try for anybody looking for an awesome place to eat in White Rock. :)
Was driving up and down Marine Drive in White Rock today looking for a place to eat. Saw a bunch of people sitting on a patio around noon time, and a small, un-assuming place called Jans On The Beach. Since it was the busiest place within site, we went in and got seated right away by a friendly server. Noticed that the kitchen was open to the dining room. New concept for White Rock. We noticed it was VERY clean as well. Waitress said they've been open for about 2 months. My wife ordered the fish bites, I had the chicken club with homemade root chips, and my daughter had a strawberry salad with chicken. All meals were under $11, and came out within 15 minutes. We were checked up on by two different waitresses and never had to ask for anything, ie. condiments, refills, etc. With the prices, cleanliness, and quality of the food which we were told was all made from scratch, we definately found our new favourite spot on the beach. I was going to suggest to the owner who is also the chef, that she may want to spruce up the outside to make it more appealing to passers by, but then decided not to. I'd think that the crowded patio and dining room is the best advertising they could have or need. Hope it sticks around.
