“love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Its just such a nice laid back setting. I don't have to worry about the kids acting up. The portions are good size. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have been to Yukon jacks on many occasions and have never been disappointed. There are only 2 negatives that I can see. The parking is not the greatest. If you get there early there maybe a spot on top. If not its great exercise:) I only other negative is sometimes it takes a little longer for the meals to come out - but then I realized that they are cooking all the food to order. Its not precooked... which is something I am definitely willing to wait for!!!

“The outside patio is outstanding.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

On a perfect summer evening, the inviting outside patio was a very lovely place to dine. The golfing green vistas are lush and scenic--very serene, and probably unique in Storrs.

The food here continues to be average. The salad bar was mundane, and needed to be refilled and refreshed.

“Relax drink and hang out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Go here with the expectation to sit back chill and hang out with your friends or make new ones. Don't expect service like a German train station, that would just be frustrating. It's the kind of place where the wait staff will sit down with patrons and hang out too. No rush no problem. Food is pub standards. The outside patio is lush greenery like you were in Vermont.

“Disappointed at Yukon Jack”
2 of 5 bubbles 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”
2 of 5 bubbles 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.
