My husband and I showed up at Jack's on a Thursday night without any reservation. We only waited 5-10 minutes for a table. We had wonderful service, and they were able to safely feed me a gluten-free meal that was absolutely wonderful. My husband loved his meal as well. I can heartily recommend this restaurant!

We just went for happy hr. and the patio was really a nice place to sit and relax with friends, have some appitizers. The noise is at a mimimum so people can visit, talk and interact without having to scream. We had the meatballs, which were great, the Polenta, sauted mushrooms, and the eggplant. Very nice place to unwind after... More

I have Celiac Disease. Jack, the owner is very health conscious and aware of food allergies. He goes out of his way to make his clients feel safe when eating. His staff is very well trained about which food is gluten free. I can eat so many things there and they are all delicious. I love the veal, which is... More

Friendly service and good food. Celebrating a b-day so did provide ice cream but no candle as were out. Insignificant given my lamb and risotto were delicious. Also enjoyed the mushroom appetizer. Overall a good experience but not necessarily memorable.

We opted in for drinks only. Great bar and I liked the layout. In 3 different rooms. Good choice of fraught beers and cocktails. Great bar tender let me sample different craft beers. Food menu looked good. It had some quirky raw food on the specials!

We love the food, but have gotten really awful service several times in a row from the waitress with dreads, so will not go back. Last time, we ordered dinner and then watched several other tables come in later, but served before us. At 45 minutes, we asked if the order was lost, and she said, for the forth time,... More

We had not eaten at Jack's for many years and were looking for an opportunity to go back. Both of our fish dinners were generous in amount and elaborate in preparation. Our initial reaction was that the treatment was tasty and a bit unusual. However, as we progressed through the food we both agreed that it was too fancy for... More

There was just the 2 of us at Jack's for a casual dinner. The food, service and wine were excellent. The entrée was served nice and hot which to me is very important. They have an incredible menu for everyone.

We visited this restaurant as I wanted to try the vegan menu but was disappointed. I ordered the portobello salad. I assume this should have contained blackened portobello but all I got was a plate of field greens, some tofu and a few tomato and pepper wedges. The beef medallions and haddock were enjoyed by my husband and sun though.... More
