All around good experience

You may have the best food, but if your service is not up to par then the whole experience suffers. This certainly was not the case here. Our waitress was attentive, efficient, and friendly. I had the Tuti Mare, a combination of seafood and pasta. On a 1-5 scale I'd give it a 4... read more

We were surprised that it wasn't better since the reviews were pretty good and there was a wait. We might have hit a rough night - our service was really slow - they apologized for it several times. The waitress kept spilling water on my feet - it was a warm night, but still. The table next to our's had... More

Jack's is easy to find in the Crescent Plaza area of Pleasant Hill. Very large restaurant with a large outside eating area also. The bar is busy and one can eat there by choice. I have been there at least 4 times, but I have always had the same thing, Chicken Picatta. The best I have had anywhere. Friends enjoyed... More

Love breakfasts at Jack's in downtown Pleasant Hill. Good food, friendly staff, near theaters, overflow parking at nearby garage.

Chic decor, large open indoor bar area, two outdoor patios to eat or drink. Service is usually prompt and friendly. Good place for date night or to meet friends. Appetizers and drinks are great, entrees are good. Enough beers on tap with sports on the flat screens or even a movie.

I don't understand why Jack's is busy unless it's the big portions that keep people coming back. We have tried this place several times and found it to have mediocre food and uneven service. I do not recommend this place unless you have no where else to be.

Jacks is great for any meal. Breakfast omelets are superb, coffee is great! Lunch sandwiches and salads are tasty. Dinners with cocktails are very good. Early bird dinner is especially reasonable price. Overall all meals are great price. Comfortable outdoor seating is available all year. There can be a waiting list at certain times, because the place is generally busy... More

This is a great restaurant for meeting a large group of family and freinds or an intimate dinner or brunch for two. Great food and drinks, even the kids are happy. This is a great compromise for when I want a nice dinner out but we have the kids with us. Great location too! Downtown Pleasant Hill is great. Been... More

In the mall-type downtown of Pleasant Hill. Open for breakfast through evening. Very reasonably priced. Excellent service. Always busy. Bar area is always open seating; better make a reservation for regular table service. Happy hour has $5 draft beers & $5 appetizers. All burger plates (including lamb & vegie) are excellent. Hand-cut French fries. Mediterranean mezze appetizer-excellent for sharing. Excellent... More
