Too Expensive for Bell Blvd.

Excellent steaks etc. High prices. Good Luck finding a parking space, Muni parking a few blocks but it's usually full. Best bet are other Steak Houses in LI.

We went to Uncle Jack’s in Bayside only once before yesteray. It was 6 years ago for an important family get-together. A while back, we visited the other Uncle Jack’s in Manhattan near the B&H. We enjoyed both places for the ambience as much as for the famous steak. After seeing the Goupon offer , I decided to re-visit the... More

The food is on par with te many fine steak houses in and arpund the five boroughs of nyc and long island. What makes this restaurant a standout is the greeting you receive... the service from the wait staff ( we had a great guy named Tracy) and the bus staff. The waiter brought a second chilled glass and poured... More

so i had a genuine NY Strip Steak here with bourbon whiskey sauce. it was about 2ft long and it was absolutely fantastic. the service was unbelievably perfect. friendly but not suffocating. i ate that for a late lunch on my final day in Queens and have to say it was money well spent. bill came to about 50 dollars...

First class service and great food. I celebrated Father's Day there with my son and it was a fantastic experience. I cannot find anything that was not perfect with this visit for dinner.

The dinner and service were top notch but parking was a problem. The waiter suggested that my wife and I split a steak and he even sliced it for us. The asperigus and lamb appetizers were top notch and the chocolate suffle was to die for. We will dine there when we visit NY again

1. The Good- Service Service Service!! The staff was extremely accommodating, courteous and friendly it was outstanding. 2. The Bad- If you are looking for a quite intimate meal with a loved one, you might want to avoid Uncle Jacks. It was very very noisy and the tables were cozy. We asked to be moved to the cellar dining room... More

To celebrate being at the Belmont for Triple Crown winner we wanted dinner at a good steakhouse on Long Island. Uncle Jack's was the perfect choice. Shared a perfectly good medium rare porterhouse along with a Stags Leap Cab. Valet parking and Excellent service too. I wished I had checked Groupon before going to dinner. There is a very good...

I was expecting to be knocked out by the reputation of the steaks here, and was sadly disappointed. Luger's has nothing to worry about.
