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

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

This is a unique restaurant as it's a cross between a nice neighborhood bar and fine dining. How they pull it off is quite impressive. The food was fresh and came in ample portions. The steak was perfect and the service was first class. So much so I experienced something I've never seen before. As I was enjoying my meal,... More

We are an occasional carnivore couple and Jack's is the place to go if you are in the mood for a great steak, and great seafood in the eastern Queens area. When you're done, walk it off along Bell Blvd. and check out the nightlife outside of the City (Manhattan). Well worth the trip, and the service is top notch... More

My husband Will and I live in Bayside and know a great steak when we eat one. The steak and its accoutrements, the ambience, the service, the selection of wines and just about anything one would expect from their dining experience can be found here on Bell Blvd.
