...because this area has so few restaurant options, but I did not enjoy my meal here at all. The appetizers were boring, a starter salad was pretty much just lettuce on a plate with an overly tart dressing, the steak was overly salty (and I love salt!) and the green beans were obviously from frozen, and completely unseasoned. For those who are less discerning and would never prepare a steak for themselves at home, this will do fine. But for me personally, it's not fun to dine out on food that I'd do better at home, but unfortunately that was my experience at Jack's.
The German selections did look fairly interesting, though, I'll admit. The house-made spaetzle and a very correct schnitzel a friend ordered made me envious.
The wine list needs attention from someone who truly understands wine (it was mostly Ch. Ste. Michelle selections at reasonable prices and a few other oddball items that were ridiculously overpriced-- there was basically nothing here for the discerning oenophile),
Too, the staff needs training in wine service. The wine should be opened and served BEFORE the food arrives. They should be trained in how to open bottles brought by patrons who bring their own in self-defense. (You don't turn a 15 year old bottle of cabernet upside down.) Or, just hire servers with common sense--it's not rocket science.
