Excellent steakhouse - needs to communicate much better

We visited Uncle Jack's for a nice steak dinner on a family trip. The restaurant was very convenient to our hotel and while checking out their website to make sure they had a kid's menu, they not only had one, but also had a "kids eat free" on Sunday special. Since we were making reservations for... read more

I expected the decor to be a little more upscale for a steakhouse. The Bacon Appetizer was awesome, the Shrimp cocktail I could have gotten anywhere, the shrimp were average. We both got the 12 oz strip which was good but for the prices they charge it should have been a lot better. Even though our waiter was very pleasant... More

Expensive but totally worth it. The best beef we have ever had! And we have visited different countries and very good restaurants. The staff is friendly, the place is classic and warm. Cocktails, main courses and desserts were just great.

We came with a Groupon. We were given a special menu, but were told we could order from the regular menu for an additional charge. Although the Special menu was limited, and the portions smaller, it was fabulous. The service was exceptional. This Bayside restaurant has more waiters and help than customers, as it is a small space. Have the... More

"Our speciality is the porterhouse steak" we were told. Great - we'll have three of those then (one for my wife, myself and our 14 year old girl daughter who has a smaller than average appetite). What arrived was enough meat to feed AT LEAST six at a British restaurant. At 54 dollars each, that wasn't cheap either, and most... More

At the recommendation of the Maître D I ordered the Bone in Filet, cooked medium. It was not good. There was so much fat and other stuff I could barely cut into it. After struggling to get to the center,instead of being pink was very red. It was also a very hot day/night and the Air Conditioning was not working... More

This place is a joke. We had been here a little over a year ago and the experience was so bizarre, and not in a good way, I wrote to them and they gave us a gift card to come back and try again. That is the only reason we went back. This time, the experience was worse than the... More

Visited here with a Groupon deal. Even with that, this was not a value for money deal. It was billed as a 5 course meal deal. Only when you are sitting at the table and actually looking at the menu, does it say in very bold print that "there are absolutely no substitutions". I mention this as the steak comes... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
