Best steak ever!

No reservations. Local favorite. Damn good bartender. That will occupy your waiting time with cocktails extraordinaire. The steak is grilled to perfection. The house salad is a must. Don't let it's vintage ingredients of simple iceberg lettuce fool you. You've got to go to Jack's once in your life.

If you want the best steak in Northern California then Jack's is it! A no frills but just darn good food restaurant. If Mike is bartending then you are in luck because he sits on the top of the totem pole of bartenders. A "hole in the wall" restaurant that's been serving the best steak one can eat. The history...

Honestly, have never had a bad meal there! We've learned to get there later have 1-2 drinks and enjoy our meal. Yes they are famous for steak but make it a priority to try the fried chicken, you won't be sorry! We've been going for over 25yrs and we still crave it, enjoy!

People rave about this place, I was not impressed its a bar, the steak was tough & lacked flavor. The salad is plain old lettuce basically no veges, disgusting dressing, terrible service. I will not go back if you like the bar scene & no privacy terrible seating, I say go. Otherwise there is better choices..

My review would start out by saying "You have to do Jacks". prepare to wait for a table for an hour unless you get there between 4pm and 5pm. Its packed, its noisy, they don't take reservations...the waitresses and the bartender are the bomb...love them...love the food...you owe it to yourself.."To do Jacks". Its an experience!

The food is absolutely amazing but you cant make reservations, so you must be willing to wait for a great meal. Best steak in town and the salad is awesome! Grab a drink from the bar and have a good time.

Loved this restaurant! Atmosphere is cozy, dark, and comfortable. It has a classic old look which just adds to its charm. The steaks are thick no matter which cut you order. Sides are good. Salad was good but as a warning very heavy on the dressing. Service is perfect. Thank you JAcks!

If you have to be in Redding, Jack's is a pretty good bet. Been there several times, steaks are usually excellent. Interesting salads in large bowl almost family style, not for everyone, Thousand Island/ chopped iceberg with green beans. Lively atmosphere loaded with friendly locals. Excellent price, good portions, had the "Jack's Stack" most recently, bite sized steak bits with... More
