The service was impeccable and steaks were so tender you almost didn't have to chew them. If I were to point some negatives out: My Filet Mignon was slightly over peppered and one of the pecans in my pecan pie tasted a bit stale. Other than those two minor things the experience was great.

Food was outlandishly expensive but also the best tasting steak I've ever had! Still salivating when I recollect the incredible meal. My waiter was impeccable and attentive. Almost the perfect dining experience except for the hateful hostess that did not think I should get a table for one. She thought I should eat at the bar which if it had... More

The very pricey prime NY Strip was fatty and replete with gristle. Service good, onion rings superb.

In a word FANTASTIC!!!! The size is deceiving as you enter there is a small bar on the right with a long narrow room of rich wood and diamond mirrors with tables on both sides (plenty of room). There is also an upstairs with more tables. We were quickly greeted by an affable hostess and taken to our table where... More

I simply cannot come up with enough words to describe what an amazing experience dining at Uncle Jacks is! From the off the charts food to the soothing and comfortable ambiance to the amazing wait staff (especially Tony!)..it's an unforgettable experience. We celebrated our anniversary here and were even presented with a special treat at the end of the meal!

After watching Restaurant Stakeout we were excited to eat at Uncle Jack's steakhouse. We went at a non busy time and it took forever to get our drinks. We were a party of 4 and had about 3 people waiting our table and they didn't know what the other was doing and we felt we got forgotten in several occasions.... More

We were extremely pleased by everything: service, atmosphere, and of course food! (which was more than exceptional!!! try the dish - do not remember the name unfortunately - which combines 2 types of meat, New York steak and filet mignon; also ask for mashed potato and spinach with cream as side dishes)... Worth visiting!

We ate at Uncle Jacks last evening. We first had a cocktail at the Bar. Excellent. The bartender could not have been better. We were later seated and a great table overlooking the grand stairway. Our captain, Shaun, greeted us and gave us appropriate time to finish our drinks and look over the menu. Service was impeccable...The first 2 courses,... More
