As far as steakhouses go, mountain jacks is an average place. The setting is nice, service is good, portions are generous. The food in comparison to the talent in today's steakhouse category is good but not great. We weren't disappointed but not overly excited about...More

Great food that is reasonably priced. Greatest mud pie. Great service. My wife loves the whiskey salmon. The prime rib is good and the almond crusted walleye. We have never had a bad meal there.

Coming from Minnesota and staying next door for the Indy 500 I have dined here for over 20 years. It is, and always has been, one of my favorite restaurants. Great steaks, prime rib and at your table salad bar. Terrific service too.

For a high class restaurant I would think the prime rib could have been a little better with a little less fat, and the Caesar salad could have had a little more flavor. But the service was fantastic.

We had a great meal with filet mignon done to perfection, potatoes and salads and crab stuffed mushrooms! The entree bread is exquisite and the waitress was great and detailed just enough, good value for money! The asparagus soup was tasteless but its fine!

Second time there and pretty disappointed with the experience. Watered down salad dressing ruined the salad that we'd raved about to our friends. Teriyaki steak under cooked, server didn't come back until we were half way through the meal. Constant calling out by staff CORNER!...More

Casual attire is fine. No jacket/tie needed. You can wear one if you want, but jeans, nice shorts/shirt is fine. We were dressed casually when we dined there (nice shorts and shirts).
