“Disappointed at Yukon Jack”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Atmosphere is pleasant. Beer is good. Food is almost as good as the cafeteria's food on campus. Simple, plain food and no adjustments made in preparing to meet any health or dietary need. Salad Bar is overpriced; best choices are of the salad dressing; shredded carrots tasted like the blade that shredded them. Limited salad fixings. A one-time visit place for me.

“Blegh”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Had the Rib Tickler burger.
Totally not worth $10.50. Fries were awful. Burger only had flavor thanks to the onions.

“What a wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I went to Yukon Jack's for Valentine's Day and boy was I surprised with what I received! Online the restaurant looks sort of like a grill and bar that will not be very classy, but upon walking in you are greeted with great service and what looks to be a high class dining experience. The decor is gorgeous, even down to the bathrooms!, and it is incredibly clean. We ordered drinks, the root beer is amazing! We then got an appetizer of their cheese fries which were delicious. For the main course I got the four cheese ziti and my boyfriend got the rib tickler burger (burger with cheese, onion rings, bacon, and BBQ sauce). My dish came with the salad bar, which was small but delicious. They had an array of traditional toppings (cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, etc.) along with fancier toppings to go on. They had seven different kinds of dressing, and the balsamic and ranch were to die for! Our dishes were great, the pasta was definitely enough for two and they had no problem substituting mashed potatoes instead of fries with the burger.
I was very happy to find a great restaurant so close to a college campus, it really is a well hidden secret! They took reservations for us for Valentine's Day and had a table waiting when we arrived. They also have a great dessert menu with a lot of cupcake options, but we were much too full to have any!
Will definitely be returning back to Yukon Jack's!

“Worked well for a family party with small children”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We visited Yukon Jack's for a family birthday party. It worked very well for us for this purpose. The dining room is spacious, as was our table, and the restaurant is family friendly.

The food is average, but there is a variety to choose from. The dining room decor and vistas out the windows are very pleasant. We've used Yukon Jack's several times for take-out, and have been pleased with the food and value, especially when they offer pizza at special prices.
