“Just there for drinks...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

But had a great time. The house-made potato chips were great, and they had an excellent cocktail menu and numerous top-shelf single malt Scotches, which suited me just fine. Our friends who live in the area recommended it for dinner as well, but we just had drinks here.

“Awesome food in a comfortable ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We had a business dinner here this past weekend and it was perfect! The ambiance is conducive to conversation, yet its casual enough to not feel uncomfortable. The food was high-end and delicious!

The online reservation system at http://www.jackandcharli… is flawless! I mentioned some dietary restrictions and the owner e-mailed me back to let me know they could accommodate them. Great customer service!!

This was a top notch experience all the way around!! It's wonderful to have a restaurant like this in Visalia!

“Easy on the Salt!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Sunday night isn't the most auspicious day to go out for dinner in Visalia. Many of the high-rated restaurants aren't open.......and those which are might not have the regular personnel on duty in the kitchen and dining room. We tried Jack and Charlie's as probably the best among those that were open and within a reasonable distance. The service was okay. The daily menu was rather limited, and the place wasn't very busy. Several of the dishes were way too salty for our taste. Overall, an OK choice when little else is available, and maybe (based on other reviews) they have better nights.

“Wonderful food & great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Went to this restaurant on a whim, had never heard of it before. It was FABULOUS!!! The menu was amazing. Plan on doing the 3 course pairing for $46 per person...it gives you the best bang for your buck!! I highly recommend the filet mignon, the meat absolutely melted in my mouth. The quail was also amazing. Lots to choose from and they also had a nice menu of house specialty drinks that were wonderful.

“Comfort Foods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Jack and Charlies transcends you back to a long ago era of Hollywood glamor, good times, and comfort foods. Order specialty flavored infused vodka's from the bar or comfort foods such as beef stroganoff or a sauteed chicken liver dinner from the restaurant. The waiters and bar-tenders are all friendly and helpful. The prices are descent. Meet up with friends for a great night out on the town at Jack and .Charlie's
