We ate here on the recommendation of employees of the Hawthorn Suites. Jack's Family Restaurant specializes in two things, fried chicken and their homemade soup. My friend had the dark meat and I had the white and they were both delicious. The knoepla soup was all it was touted to be and was creamy and delicious. The service was good... More

The knoephla at Jacks is one of the best! Creamy potato and dumpling soup always hits the spot. Jack's is truly a hidden gem in Dickinson, but check their hours before you go because it is a family owned business to it is not open all the time like a corporate store!

Based on other reviews, we stuck to the borscht and knoephla (which sounded like "neffla" when the server said it). Both were amazing. My youngest son was the only one who didn't have soup, and he wished he had after tasting the knoephla. Other items, like the chicken, were okay, but the soup is the way to go. We did... More

We stopped at Jack's for lunch and was pleasantly surprised how clean homey it was. However, when our food came we were kind of schocked it was served on paper plates. We ordered a bacon cheeseburger deluxe and they forgot the deluxe. Everything seemed to be from out of a bag or a box. The chicken was greasy and needed... More

Jack's is a very pleasant small-town restaurant. The borscht and knoephla soups are excellent. Fried chicken is very good also. Be aware that it is closed Mon-Tue and the dining room closes at 7pm.

They were closed for eat-in due to remodel some family issue, but we ordered borscht for take-out. We ate elsewhere but took the borscht home. It was delicious!
