“Meh”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Everything we had was just mediocre. Given the reviews and the size of the crowd, we had hoped for a lot more. There were eight of us for dinner and no one got the same thing. Our server was new and what she lacked in experience she at least made up for in enthusiasm. But they really should tell new employees that it is the waiter's responsibility to garnish the beverages from the bar.

We were at Jack's only because Hungry Hunter closed so we were unable to go there for our annual reunion dinner.

“Great bar!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Had a quick drink here while watching the NBA playoffs. Lots of people just hanging out at the bar and enjoying themselves. Had the spanakopita, which was just "ok." I will go back to try some other items on the list.

“Trendy and fun”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The breakfast was great...yukon gold hash browns to die for. Dinner: steak was above average but not great. The prices are a little high but we will return. Friendly staff. Fun vibe.

“Jack's is always crowded.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We try to eat here at least once a week but sometimes are turned away by the line at the door.
This is the best restaurant in that area, which includes Chilies, Hooters, and BJ's. Food is as you would expect from a Greek family run restaurant -nothing fancy, good portions and good value.
The restaurant is clean, food is fresh.

Only drawback is the lousy acoustics. It gets very loud for no apparent reason

“Jacks is back!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We dined at Jack's Restaurant and Bar shortly after they opened about a year ago. The service then was terrible, the food marginal. I couldn’t even hear my dining partner as the acoustics were terrible.
We recently tried Jack’s again.
The food was excellent. Our waitress “Marlene” was attentive and the restaurant improved the décor and acoustics. We were pleasantly surprised!
Jack's Restaurant is back!
