Southern tasty food

The food here is Southern Cuisine with the added plus of local sourcing. Portions are generous and filling. The Pimento Cheese sample is very good and really prompts one to order more. The bar is always busy and folks have fun!

The servers at Jack Allen's are friendly and knowledgeable. Food is prepared as you want it. Wine list is ok and the prices are very fair.

We've tried lunch, dinner, happy hour, and our favorite--Sunday brunch. Have not once been disappointed in the food, drinks, or service. Half price appetizers at happy hour are excellent, and the drink menu is creative and unique. Daily specials have not disappointed and the trout is one of our favorites off the menu.

A bit of a wait to get a table for 3 for dinner, but the food & drinks were so delicious we didn't mind after all. Went with the waiter's recommendations and he was right. A nice blend of modern with tradition in their southwest menu. Can sit inside or outside.

Good food, good prices and plenty of seating even during lunch rush. Sit out on the back patio on at least at the back of the restaurant to get a view of the river and woods.

We have tried Jack Allen's Kitchen for the Sunday Brunch, but never for a week day meal. We finally made it out for a weekday lunch and really enjoyed the meal. The food selection all sounded so delicious, it was hard to decide just what to pick. The food we did pick was wonderful, different and fresh. It was a... More

My family loves this place. I love the Texas inspired menu. Everything is delicious, including the cocktails. And there's great outdoor seating and views from the oak hill location.
