We found uncle Jacks Steak House while walking down 9th Ave, we read the Menu and decided to call in that evening. As we hadn't booked we had to wait at the bar for about 30 mins, but the staff kept us informed to when there would be a free table. The staff were excellent, the service was very good.... More

A little cappuccino and away we went. Bottle of wine to couldn't have been at a better room temperature. If you want to get away from... More

My sister and walked by here after getting off our buses at Port Authority. We noticed that they offered a $29.95 prix fixe lunch(cheap for midtown). We each began our meal with lollipop lamb chops. We then had Caesar salads and then had the New York strip that came with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. The food was delicious and... More

Close to Madison Square Garden, Uncle Jack's Steakhouse is perfectly placed for an after event dinner. In our case we watched the New York Knicks play badly against the Heat. But back to the restaurant, if you're looking for the famous New York steak, Uncle Jack's won't disappoint. My 26 ounce rib eye was first class as was the porterhouse... More

We went for our 25 th wedding anniversary. The service, food, and atmosphere were all superb and we thought the price was surprisingly reasonable. Looking forward to going again on our next trip to New York.

The overall experience was great, including the food and service. This was my first visit, and probably my last. For the price, I would go back to Keen's.
