“Practices Discriminatory Pricing”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Jackies food and service is admittedly excellent. The problem is in their desire to charge different prices to people who are in the same group. Some foreign teachers get a discount card but others do not and no Chinese teachers get one. Sometimes teachers with the card and teachers without the card are eating together and it makes everyone in the group uncomfortable when different prices are charged to members of the same group like we experiencing apartheid.

“Misconceptions and misunderstanding - and fantastic as usual!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I was at Jackie's yesterday and the food and service were as good as ever.
I asked about the reported withdrawal of Foreign Teacher discounts and was told this report was untrue. THE TEACHER DISCOUNT REMAINS UNCHANGED. The previous reviewer (who is known to the restaurant) was refused discount because he tried to use a borrowed card. Membership cards are not transferable. This is clearly stated on the rear of the card, where it also mentions that the membership card remains the property of the restaurant and can be withdrawn in case of abuse. Jackie's earlier response does not make this clear because of limitations in his use of the English language. Jackie welcomes foreign teachers. It would be a real pity if potential customers to this superb restaurant were put off by a misleading review by one person who felt aggrieved when he was caught out trying to abuse the generous discount system! .

“Great Western food in Yantai”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A group of Western business travelers, desperate for Western food after a week of eating traditional Chinese, we arrive at Jackies. The restaurant with its colourful stained glass and wooden tables reminds us of a steakhouse back home and we're immediately at home. Jackie comes to meet us, and allows us our own wines (being on a wine industry visit to China) on BYO. The food is rich and tasty, portions were generous, and the kitchen is quick to serve. The live music was a pleasant surprise, the men in our group promised to be back to test the beer garden. The restaurant graciously allowed us to finish our drinks, way after normal closing time - which is really early in China.
Very good value for money, and we'll definitely visit again.

“Foreign Teacher Discount Card”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The word now going around foreign teachers is that Jackie's will NO LONGER honor the 30% discount on meals and cards are being taken away. The owner manager apparently says it is "No longer worth it." Given their reliance on the Ex-Pat community, their price increase on an already over-priced menu, the average food quality, a taxi ride to the far side of towne for 60 RMB plus the cost of dinner makes a trip to Laishan Disrict..... no longer worth it !!!

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you want a change from Chinese food, then Jackie's is simply the best. Great decor, great ambience, friendly and efficient service and the very best food - the fajitas are really as good as it gets, the Indian style curries are authentic and the salads are all excellent. The music is well-chosen and unobtrusive, with live performers at weekends.

Jackie's is not to be bettered anywhere in China.
