Jack's has everything - a great bar scene, good food, meeting facilities and friendly service. Sometimes it's a challenge to find parking but that's a sign this place is popular. This is a favorite destination to meet friends whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just drinks - exactly what you'd expect from a place where everyone knows your name.

We had dinner here tonight. Always a good selection of American comfort foods. Very attentive service with recommendations of dishes they are well known for. Always enjoyable.

At a friend's recommendation, we met here for lunch. It was a good choice. Sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. Were not rushed. Lots of enticing choices on the menu. Two of us had the bay shrimp salad and we also had the Cobb salad, and they were excellent. Server, Renae, was very personable and attentive. Wonderful choice.

The food at Jack's Restaurant is really, really good. They have a separate banquet room up stairs and are always accommodating to outdoor parties as well on the pation. Inside you can get a cozy table for 2 for your special event, or just hang with friends at the bar.

We had dinner here the other day and tried two traditional American meals: meatloaf and another one with stewed beef. Bothnmeals were excellent. We ate at the bar. Bar tender Ivan was very very friendly and he knows his business very well. They even offered an Italian Aperitivo Aperol Spritz, that I didnt know you were able to get in... More

Worst food I have had in many years. Tasteless, small portions (thank goodness) and the bun on the slider was way too old and served ice cold. The atmosphere is like eating dinner in your garage. Overall, bad food and greatly overpriced. You are better off eating at the food carts in the Moda Center.

Jack's is a family friendly restaurant, bar/sports bar. The food is good and relatively economical. There is a very nice outdoor seating area with heaters if necessary. Everyone can find something to eat here. We come here often.

2 of us for an early evening dinner. Very attentive service from Julio on his first night…. accurate, prompt and polite - a credit to the restaurant. We enjoyed dinner… salmon pasta for my wife, and a steak for me. Inexpensive wine list, and pretty busy for a Monday. Decent quality… would use again.

this is our weeknight go-to restaurant; you can get salads,appetizers, burgers, mac and cheese, pasta, chicken,fish,beef. weekend evenings are a bit crazy and if there is a popular sports team playing, getting into the bar is near impossible. as a big plus, they have 2 good sized outdoor eating areas which in colder weather they enclose with heavy plastic panels....
