We were very tired one evening recently and wanted some Chinese food (American style) and called Jack's Fortune. I'd forgotten how good it is. The food was fresh, the soup was tasty and flavorful and generally the meal was very satisfying. As a matter of...More

Our area is covered with Chinese restaurants. Most of them are tasteless , MSG saturated garbage. Once in a while you find a place that carefully prepares tasty, authentic Chinese food. Of course, as we know a good deal of Chinese food is Americanized. One...More

For years, I thought Jack's had wonderful Chinese food. Then, they seemed to go through a period ( beginning 2 yrs ago or so), where the food was pedantic and uneven. I stayed away for the past year, even though it's located close to where...More

All the traditional Chinese dishes and the best crab cake in Annapolis in our view. Most love the Peking Duck and crispy beef. Portions are huge. Prices are low and owners Mae and Jack make this a destination dining place for us.
