Jack’s is an intimate pub with a quality, made-from-scratch menu with all the classics (meat pie, bangers and mash, fish and chips). The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. I went at 5:30 on a Monday and beat the crowd. I absolutely loved the atmosphere, and the fish and chips were definitely in the upper echelon of that dish. The haddock filet was fried to perfection, and the large steak fries were cooked just right. I’d highly recommend Jack’s to locals and travelers alike.

We arrived early on a Sunday evening wishing to try this highly rated restaurant. We had been here before years before and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I read great reviews on their other meal options and we wished we would have tried one of those entrees. There were 4 of us and as it was early, the restaurant was fairly empty although it filled up fast. My husband ordered the soup and enjoyed his meal. The other 3 of us ordered the roast beef special offered on Sunday. We were all disappointed in the roast beef. It was mediocre at best. It was thinly sliced and lacked flavor. The yorkshire pudding was also dry. As there are so many positive reviews, I would recommend trying some of the other options that so many love. It's an older restaurant that could use some sprucing up inside and out.

We've been here three times, twice with friends. Terrific meals all three times! The Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chips, Shepherd's Pie and Steak & Ale pie are all delicious. Last night we tried the Scotch Egg, French Onion Soup and Crisps with Blue Cheese Chardonnay Dip. All spectacular along with great beer selections and decent wines. Then we learned from the proprietor, Peter, that he bakes his own buns and bread. The bread topping on the French Onion Soup was home made as well. We will continue to bring friends. It's closer to South Tampa than you might think!

Food is excellent but so noisy. Have you investigated soundproof tiles for the ceiling? I have been going there since it opened but avoided it lately because the noise was so bad last time I went in.

Thanks for the comment.
We shall definitely check out the soundproofing options, pretty sure that you may have popped in on a crowded night with music perhaps?
Sorry for the inconvenience but glad you love the food.

Jack's is a small restaurant in north St. Pete. Food is excellent, mostly homemade and full of flavor. There are numerous special each night plus a printed menu. The owner is in the kitchen and usually makes a visit to each table in the dining room. They offer beer and wine and have a small bar. We eat there at least once a week and have never been disappointed.
