Jack's is widely acclaimed as the best steak house in the Redding area. This is the classic place that most people claim that they could care less about the ambeaunce they just care about the product on the plate. It is pretty much a "dump" on the inside,clean with 15-20 tables,but I do think they have the best steaks in... More

So, we've lived here for several years now and it took us awhile to make our way in to this landmark establishment. It has quite a reputation as "the best", so we had to finally try it. Really?! was all I could think when the food was served. It wasn't bad, but it certainly fell nowhere even close to "the... More

Every time I Return to Redding have have one meal in Jacks. Best steaks on the planet. If like Morton's and Ruth Kris this is a must try and a lot less expensive. Lots of history in this place and steaks are still the same for the 77 years.

This was my second visit. I had come once before for a 4pm dinner so I didn't have a long wait. The food was fine nothing special. This place is always crowded and I didn't like the feel of people stepping over me as I ate. I came a second time only because my wife had never been. Is it... More

Cozy family restaurant with a bar 60's style, specialized in meat --a few fish choices available. Meat perfectly done, fresh salad and fries or baked potato. Staff very friendly and professional. The restaurant consists of just a few tables surrounding the bar, with good wine selection. And at a very reasonable price.

Came to Redding for a business trip. Asked my friend where to go for dinner and he recommended Jack's Grill. I'm not a big steak guy but I don't mind it. I went here and found out it's been here for 77 years. So it has history and the locals must love it. My coworker is steak dude and he... More

I have eaten at Jacks off and on for years and have arranged travel plans to make sure to visit even while living on the East Coast. This is not a Ruth Chris or Mortons kind of place but the steaks are damn good. I even love the iceberg lettuce with the ton of blue cheese dressing on it.. it... More

This restaurant has been here since the 1930's. I have eaten here several times over the years. The steaks are great and the bar is well stocked.
