Great old fashion drive in food. Worth the visit and reasonably priced. Service was stand in line style, fast and friendly. The food was good but typical hot dog and hamburger stand type. The shakes and ice creamed, served next door, were most tasty. Get it a try for good food fast

The jack burger and onion rings are my all time favorites, but the price is crazy. 5.25 for a burger you can get at Wendy's for half the price? C'mon guys. It's a little ridiculous to go and spend 45-50 dollars on a family of 4 at a burger joint.

Had dinner before a concert next door at Freedom Park. Go for the "Jack Burger" and some fires or onion rings! If you skip the shake, there's ice cream for desert.

Jumpin' Jacks is a summer tradition. Outdoor eating with plenty of picnic tables. Burgers, fries, and onion rings are all delicious. The food is rather expensive, though. Plenty of frozen treats available at more reasonable prices. A nice place to bring kids of all ages. Couples and friends will enjoy it as well. Good location too. Waterski shows on the... More

We stopped in for ice cream after long paddles on the Erie Canal. The service is really quick! They offer a really wide range of ice cream products. There is something for everyone! One day, I had a "freeze" (like a Blizzard) and the next day I had a hot fudge sundae. Both were really good.

Jumpin' Jacks has their own style of burgers but excellent taste, moderately priced and the outdoor ambiance is very relaxing and actually rather awesome. It is a local place that is closed in the winter (go figure that for upstate NY) but a delight for the spring opening.

Not horrible but no longer great. Still worth a trip once a year but the burgers are average, at best, fries are limp and what was my favorite, the fish fry, has shrunk to a shadow of its former self. Ice cream hasn't been the same for a number of years. Great place to take kids, right next to the... More

A summer must-visit every time we come home to Scotia for a visit! Great dinner, amazing ice cream and even better on a night with a concert or a ski show! Nothing quite like it anywhere else!

OK for a burger and fries or something quick. This would be a fun kayak stop but their dock is not kayak friendly.

A trip to Jumpin'Jacks in the summer is a must - nothing fancy about the food - we had cheese burgers and fries - the onion rings are really good -takes you back to the 50's great location by the Mohawk River - they also have ice cream and shakes the fish is also good.
