“Everything made from scratch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

Jack's American Bistro doesn't look like much from the outside, it's in an ugly building but the atmosphere inside is nice. This is a family owned and operated restaurant. They make a fantastic pear martini. They give you complimentary liver pate and crackers upon arriving and bread with dipping oil. Everything is fresh and I am told, made from scratch. The fried calamari appetizer is excellent, especially the marinara sauce that comes with it. Liked the baked brie appetizer with apples and walnuts. Love the Scallops Michael - they are using giant scallops. Portions are always generous and half plates are available. Anytime I made a reservation I never had to wait when I got there. Service prompt but could be a little friendlier.

“Great Family Owned Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2010

Jack's American Bistro is a family owned and operated bar/restaurant located in Queensbury, New York. Hidden in a strip mall, Jack's has proved to be an area mainstay. It's fine cuisine consisting of and array of appetizers, chicken, pork, salad and pasta entrees are quite satisfying. It offers small plates to allow the table to mix dishes.

It has quite a bar following with regulars with warm greetings and the bartender is the best mixologist in the business. At the bar, enjoy the plumpest and tastiest shrimp cocktail ever served.
