Owners Jeff and Keri McCann

Jack’s Waterfront Bar opened in September 2008 with the very rewarding, yet hard work of owners Jeff and Keri McCann, a collective effort of family, friends, local business owners, the town and a large collection of coolers to hold the cans of beer on ice, carrying on the name of Jeff’s father, Jack McCann. The couple originally planned to close for the winter after the Grand Opening and put the finishing touches on the bar – but it was so well received they kept right on serving beer out of coolers until they could afford the equipment.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and we are so lucky to have the staff that we have,” Keri said, they’ve developed a “pretty cool extended family that has grown over the last few years. I’m not sure what I would do without them all. It’s very important to all of us that we keep the integrity of Jack’s and its future to a standard that everyone, including the town of Morehead City, can be proud of. And, of course, living up to the name and what it stands for.”

Not only has Jack’s become an asset for downtown Morehead City’s ongoing revitalization, but the couple behind the scenes are champions for a variety of causes, from hosting and organizing the Grand Prix to fundraisers for the Hospice House, Locks for Love, the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program and many more.
