Might have walked by a local gem

I might have walked by a local gem if it was not for a friend who took us here. The outside is nothing to look at. Looked like a local bar marginal food. We took it on faith and went for dinner. A simple place, steak, steak, steak and a few other items on the short and simple... read more

I dont know why all the hype, my friend told me not go there because it was aweful and disgusting. But we decided to give it a try anyway BC of all the talk. We feel the only way to choke down the disgusting steak was if you were completely drunk. The drinks must be strong in order to make... More

This place is not fancy and can get crowded as no reservation. Wait at the bar and enjoy the game on TV as you have a cocktail or a beer. This place dates back to before microbrews, so your choices are old school American beer (Bud, Coors, etc). Wine selection is limited but not marked up too bad. I suggest... More

The New York steak and the Filet were both cooked perfectly (very rare). I don't know what it was about the baked potatoes but they were much better than in most restaurants. The salad, while nothing to write home about, was large. The bar does not stock top shelf liquor but the bar tender/owner is friendly and the Giants game... More

Spending one night in Redding, I decided as usual to check Tripadvisor, looking for a Steak restaurant. And I was, as usual, satisfied of the reliability of the reviews. There is not more than steak to eat, but what a steak! New York Strip and Fillet are just great at Jack's: juicy, tender and perfectly grilled. Also the salad, in... More

Haven't been there in years. Although the food is excellent it is kept fairly dark inside. The building is very old and I'm somewhat skeptical of dimly lit buildings. Especially when it comes to food.

I've dined here a dozen times after fishing the Sac. The NY strip is always great. The filet can be dry. Salad, nothing fancy. Wine list is terrible so bring your own. Cocktails are great and the manager/bartender knows his stuff. This is a dive with great food. I would not miss a dinner here when in the area. Go... More

dry, overcharred. ashame, since it was a nice piece of meat. Nice ambience and the "girls" (2 experienced pro's) were handling the room nicely. Steak was pressed with something heavy. Dry and very "grill charred, indicating that it had been weighted during the cooking process. The salad was great and the room felt like the reverent establishment it is, started... More
