I live very close to Jack's Tavern. I go there routinely for quick tasty meals at a good price. Nothin too fancy , nothin too bad. The wings and apps are very good. The Jack Burger is wonderful. Everything is mid level at all respects. I have not had the Prime Rib Special. I've witnessed it being brought out. Looked... More

My extended family and I visited Jack's for a late lunch. The service was fun and friendly. The menu was big with many excellent choices and the food was quite good for a reasonable price. I fed 7 people for $100 which included 2 appetizers and a dessert. The fries are fresh cut with monstrous portions (get one to share)... More

We go to Jacks for the prime rib and fries. Always prepared perfectly. Reasonable prices too. Very crowded when Millersville is in session. Wait staff a little flaky sometimes but still worth a visit.

Nice place to have lunch or dinner. From sandwiches to apps and dinners from land or sea you get a great variety of choices here. And if you like fries or any type of potatoes Jacks has the best and biggest. Located in the heart of Millersville.

I mean I've been to better bars/pubs than Jack's but it's always filled with newly 21 year old Millersville students and they are all acting stupid or making a scene in the middle of the bar. No one moves over to give you and your friend a seat even though they can clearly move over one if they were courteous.... More

Yesterday five of us met at Jack's in Millersville, PA to have a "girl's lunch out." Having never been there before, I really didn't know what to expect. It has sort of a very casual "pub" feel to it, relaxing and pleasant. The bar and the eating area are separated, making it fun to go here either to eat and/or... More

The food is amazing. Meats you can cut with a fork. Potato skins with STRIPS of crispy bacon, and both our meals ran what one meal at a chain restaurant would cost!

Hahahaha! was in Millersville for the Hershey Youth Track Championship- met a few officials here, had a couple of brews. I wanted a snack, but was having dinner later- so I ordered the nacho platter..... platter, no, more like a cafeteria tray! I had so many nachos, I fed the bar!

We went to Jack's because of the glowing Trip Advisor reviews. The waitress was nice, but she forgot that I told her that I can't have lemon in my water and brought water with lemon. I had the crab cake sandwich (see pic). It was very bready, a lot filler and not much crab. It also was just a crab... More

Jack's is a local eatery just off the campus of Millersville University. It is known for its burgers and fries. Note - any fried food is cooked in peanut oil, which is not (but should be) writen on the children's menu. Food is tasty and reasonably priced.
