This was one of my favorite restaurants. I won't go back after my last visit. I was with a party of 6 and had a terrible experience. It was a Friday night. They ran out of our favorite appetizer, the beer was warm (we sent it back), and the next round of drinks was the last because they ran out... More

Excellent steak dinner but on the expensive side after ordering entree, side dish and drinks. Would recommend going there for a special occasion, not as a regular dining place.

I had the bone in NY strip which was cooked perfectly and not over seasoned with just salt and pepper. Mushrooms. Asparagus and mashed potatoes all went well. Dessert consisted of a delicious bread pudding that I'd return for.

my first visit here and an overall good experience. Nice atmosphere and attentive staff. We had the Porterhouse for two and it was exquisite. It was charred beautifully on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. The accompanying garlic mashed were the best i ever had. Spoon some steak liquid on to the potatoes and you will rejoice.... More

Great selection of steaks and wonderful service! Recommend it highly! We went to celebrate my mother's 95th birthday and staff was very understanding and accommodating!

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful meal at Uncle Jack's. It was our first time there and it was so much better than expected. The staff were terrific. Our waiter was very friendly and he was helpful in answering any questions we had about the different steaks. We will definitely be back sooner than later!

A few weeks ago we went to Uncle Jacks in midtown and were very disappointed. Management contacted us and offered a gift card for us to revisit. Last evening we went to the Bayside location. What a difference. First, the drinks were much less expensive and the bartender left the contents of the martini shaker to allow us an additional... More

This morning's brunch was a disappointment. This is the fourth or fifth time we've had Sunday brunch here, either as a couple alone or with friends, and while I've always enjoyed the atmosphere, I've been undecided about the food until today's poor experience. The good - $28 price fix brunch includes bread basket with tasty breads and muffins, a generous... More

This is a very grown up steak house. A bit small (almost cramped) with a huge bar, but I was relatively comfortable. The Steak is top notch - prime beef well prepared and in good variety. I have my doubts about the very price Kobe/Wyagu stuff, but if you stick with the standards you should be pleased. The waitstaff are... More
