You've got to know Jacks!

Jack's is a rustic Old Californian steakhouse in Redding California, but it is also a step back to a simpler time in the 1940s. It was originally a bar with a brothel upstairs in the 1920s. Not much of the decor has changed and it has been in business for over 75 years. Prices have gone up a little... read more

A wonderful old, established steakhouse that has been in business 70 years. A limited menu, but who cares. Come for the steak! Small, dark, no reservations, dive bar. Good drinks. Salad served family style. I love the blue cheese dressing. Arrive expecting to wait. Jack's is the real deal. Come for the steak!

Get in line at 4 p.m. If you want to be in the first seating at 5:30! Jack's is a historic bordello, which has been serving steaks that are the talk of the region for 60+ years? Many of the staff have worked at Jack's for over 20 years and earn in excess of 6 figures due to their loyal... More

We went for a great birthday dinner to Jack's. It was a treat! As a local, I know that the custom grill was built to be really HOT! The grill sears the steak to seal in the juices. It is true and cannot be replicated because you can't build a grill like it with current building codes. That is why... More

Coming from an area with great beef I was interested to check out a local well established steakhouse in Redding and not a chain place. TA reviews were good so checked out Jacks. Comfortable friendly place with very friendly long time staff. Candace suggested the 10 oz Filet so went with that. She brought out a bowl if salad ...... More

Discovered this wonderful, unpretentious place in 1988, and look for any excuse to drive the 3 hours to eat there! The building in no way prepares you for the grat meal you are about to enjoy. They open at 4pm & start serving at 5pm. My grandson & I arrived at 3:50, and there were already 10 people waiting to... More

Jack's Grill is a no frills establishment that has the absolute best steaks in the area. We visit them every time we are in town. Sometimes we wonder why they haven't expanded to a bigger facility but then again, that might take something away from the experience. Highly recommended you give them a try if you are a carnivore!

When you go to a locals and guests place and you know at least 2 people there you know that you are home. So friendly and loud but in a good way, slide up to the bar and make friends within 3 minutes. Enjoy an outing. We don't eat dinner out a lot but I think that this is a... More
