“Overrated”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Jack's is always touted as "the" place to go for steaks. While it definitely has some historical significance, the food is overrated in my opinion. The place is always packed and reservations are necessary. The atmosphere is dark, crowded and loud. Maybe the reason it's so dark is to hide the fact that it's dirty?

The steaks are average and the salads are so drenched in dressing one could quite possibly DRINK them...yuck! I guess I just understand what the locals see in this place??

“Great steaks”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

I have dined here on many occasions, and have never been disapointed. The steaks are always prepared exactly as ordered. Great waitresses that have been there for years, and they know their customers. The same can be said for the bartender "Mike".

If you like steak served in a friendly happy atmosphere then you will never be disaponted at Jack's Grill.

“Classic 1947 greasy spoon diner deja-vu!”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

Not much for ambiance, lousy unfriendly service, iceberg lettuce salads... Steaks fried the good-ole-fashion way on the flat-top and most likely in bacon-grease can I get a hallelujah somebody! Plus, when you order rare you actually get it rare like what rare hasn't meant since 1972!

“A Redding Icon”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Jack's is worth a visit if you want excellent steaks and cocktails. Decor is rather funky, but the service and steaks are quite good. Is not a dining experience rather a steak experience.
