As always, a really good breakfast. But this time I tried the chicken fried steak breakfast. And my oh my, I'm pretty sure it was the best I have ever eaten. Nice peppery gravy and the most perfect battering ever put on a piece of meat. I am ready to go back and have another.

This is my favorite type of restaurant for breakfast. I eat here twice during my stay in Bishop. It was recommended to me by the staff at Holiday Inn Express. I loved the fact that everything is made in-house, including english muffins, regular muffins (which are the largest muffins I've seen in my life) and mixes for pancakes & waffles.... More

The service is the best here at Jack's... The waitress's smile and interest made her my friendly aunt... The food is good, although it wasn't quite what I asked for, but the waitress fixed that...

The service was great. The place was busy and I was seated within a minute after entering. My order was taken and I was enjoying a salad within minutes. The prime rib dinner was delicious and very affordable. I will be going back.

Our waiter was friendly, helpful and cheerful - nice! The food was good, generous helpings. And they have a whole display case of fresh baked goods... yummy. Finding parking for an RV is a little tricky, but worth the trouble.

Every year since I was a child, my family has gone on a yearly fishing trip in the Sierra's. It was always a tradition to stop at Jack's on the way up and on the way back. Food has always been really good. As usual, my husband and I stopped for breakfast on our way up last weekend. We both... More

When you want to stay the course and get your meal from somewhere thats been around for a long time and do the meal right time after time here's the place for you. Breakfest is typical but that is good when traveling. They do give you plenty of food too.

My first time to Bishop, here on business. I asked 1 of the guys I was working with who happens to be a local and was recommended to hit Jack's. I ate breakfast this morning and had a terrific experience: food was fantastic, service was great (in spite of how busy they were) and the prices were fair. I returned... More

I ate dinner there one night and went back for lunch. It was excellent for such a small town. Locals and tourists mixed together. Good job!

We stopped in Bishop after driving through Yosemite that day as part of our honeymoon. Went for a walk to find somewhere to eat dinner and found Jack's on the main street. It looked busy so hoped it would be ok to eat there. Very pleasantly surprised! Seated immediately and the barman immediately came over and helped getting us drinks.... More
