“Come to pleasant hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The bar at Jacks has four big screens to watch so you are always close to your favorite sports game. The drinks are $5.00 and there is a great variety.

“Worst lunch I have ever had”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I had the Tuscan sandwich which is supposed to be consist of grilled vegetables with cheese. It twas truly awful, as there was no taste. There were no grill marks on the zucchini and eggplant. This restaurant is supposed to be one of the classy ones in Pleasant Hill, but now I will do my business entertainment elsewhere.

“Reliable and Yummy, Especially Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I've eaten here several times. While I enjoy their lunch menu (who can argue with mac and cheese?), I really enjoy the breakfasts! There is an extensive menu with lots of choices, from bananas foster french toast, to pancakes to omelets and breakfast burritos. Whew, lots to pick from and they are all delicious. The coffee is rich and smooth.
I don't mind (and my boyfriend loves) the televisions over the bar so he can check the football games on a weekend morning. The farmer's market is just outside on Saturday mornings; fun to wander.
Our server was great, attentive without being over the top. The only weak spot is the greeting at the front door. For some reason, this is usually slow - with only one person, the front is unmanned when she is seating another guest. Perhaps an additional person would help when they are busy. (Maybe one of the servers could assist with seating.) But, once you are seated, it is great.

“Great cuisine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Menu is very good and service was great. I loved the Polenta and the Greek chicken soup is excellent, too. Give it a try---you won't be disappointed. I highly recommend Jack's....in fact, we ate there 2 nites in a row!

“Good Fix for Mac & Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Pretty decent place for your mac and cheese fix. The calamari is really good as well, and pricing is fair.
