Uncle Jack's is a Bayside staple and in this reviewer's opinion the best place around for steak. Yes, I have been to ----- fill in the blank with whatever well-known name you like, yet, I still am blissfully transported to another level when we come to Jack's. Why? I think for starters it's because the quality and aging of their... More

Service is always excellent here no matter where you're seated. It's an upscale steakhouse so expect the check to reflect it. I've never been disappointed by the food or the service. Dress nice, it's a classy place.

This restaurants food and service are impeccable! It's a little close seating, but the Samon dish was fabulous! My friends had the Steak, they commented that it was so tender. All in all a great diner.

There's a special feeling you get at certain restaurants. Jack's has it. You know you're going to spend money, but you also know each and every item will be of that high quality and expert preparation you don't get except at the upper echelon establishments. Porterhouse for two was perfectly cooked and soft . Leg of lamb was succulent and... More

We've been here twice; both times absolutely phenomenal. Any low reviews you see are from tightwads who would just as soon order a NY Strip from Gustav's Diner as a real NYC steakhouse. This restaurant is for lovers of exquisite food and service. Decor is old-school New York steakhouse. It's a pleasure to take in the scenery -- for any... More

Who doesn't enjoy a delicious steak. Uncle Jacks has a wonderful reputation and deservedly so. Former mayor Giuliani and Bloomberg are customers here. Kind staff, professional. Steaks are delicious and sides just as good. My only gripe is when I dined here, I felt as if they literally started shoving me out the door once I sat down. Perhaps it... More

The service in this place is truly excellent, attentive, and on point. Every time I walk in the door i feel as if I am a VIP. In over a dozen visits I have never had a bad meal. The Sirloin Chop is one of my all time favorite foods. Just be aware that it is unlikely that you are... More
