Great food....whether you choose items that are good or bad for you. Service is good and so is the beer selection. Book ahead even midweek. Parking is limited but there is free valet service. Never been disappointed here.

Best 5 Cheese Macaroni I ever had. The chocolate bomb is a must have. Staff is super friendly and knows every detail of every dish on the menu. Super pleasant environment. We had lunch on the patio and couldn't have been any nicer: music, nice view, fireplace...definitely the best option near Austin

My family took me here for dinner when I was visiting. So many delicious choices at reasonable prices. The chicken fried steak was great. The tacos was tasty. And all in a nice- Texas country, but not cutesy setting. The prices were very reasonable.

The food is amazing and the atmosphere and service are enjoyable. Drinks have fresh juices in them and are really tasty. Everything is good - you can't go wrong when ordering.

I reviewed this place several years ago as average mainly due to the prices and noise. Since then we have visited twice again and I must update my thinking on Jack's. Once again I am impressed by our visit to Jack's. We had a great experience on December 23 2016 and decided to return to try the Sunday brunch today.... More

Excellent place. Good and service is great. Chicken fried steak and pork chops were great. Mixed reviews on the beef ribs. I'm going back.

A favorite for Happy Hour or dinner. A terrific Sunday brunch. Restaurant is chef owned and operated and draws a big crowd every day. Get there early if you don't want to wait for a table. Valet or self parking available. $$$

Jack Allen's is always reliable for good food and service. We live nearby and often will get food to go when we have friends and family visiting as the only negative for Jack Allen's is that it is almost always very crowded and difficult to hear each other talking. But Jack Allen's also packs the food in heavy duty packaging... More

Ate here twice for dinner. The servers were incredibly nice and welcoming. We were celebrating for my daughter, and one of them brought her a big, fancy, pink concoction from the bar - no alcohol, just lots of fun. :-) So excited to try chicken fried steak (which we learned is beef steak and not chicken). The steak salad was... More
