Diner Reviews
  • "I ordered Cobb salad & it was not very good & order was incorrect. Room we were in - to N of entrance - needs some major renovating. I like older places, but this definitely needs some jazzing up."

  • "I dined here with friends and was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was very much like a bar, which is why it has a minimum age of 18. The service was subpar. The waitress came by and ask if I wanted a drink while waiting for my guests and I said yes. She didn't come back for the order until after 20 mins. The service was similar the rest of the night. But, the food was really good, as well as the drinks. I will definitely dine there again. This one is a keeper, despite the slow service."

  • "We chose D. J.'s because our favorite "go to" restaurant was closed for the evening. Frankly, I had forgotten about this place until I searched open table, then remembered the great business luncheons I once had there. I had the Walleye, which was prepared perfectly. My daughter had the blackened tilapia, also exquisitely prepared. We won't wait so long before returning to this great north side gem."

  • "It was a wonderful experience. The last time I was there smoking was permitted. Thursday was a much improved without the smoking. Service was great as was lunch. The Cobb salad was very good and the server was happy to leave out the sprouts. The portion extremely generous; could have easily fed two. I would recommend Daddy Jack's highly."

  • "Fun, lively atmosphere. Interesting variety of fellow diners. Hey, daddy, will you buy me a drink? We are two 60s couples and have noticed the group of singles, including many boomers, at the bar. We enjoy a crowded restaurant with energetic noise level; we laugh a lot and blend in without calling attention to ourselves. The al fresco area is great in the season."

  • "You can always count on getting a great steak here. The food has never disappointed me and have been going here for over 20 years."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had one of the many available specials which included filet and lobster tail. The filet was excellent and the lobster tail was good. The Riesling that my wife had was a suitable accompaniment, and our server was quite attentive with my fresh brewed iced tea. The meal was brought to a sterling conclusion with a delicious chocolate cake topped with the most delicious ice cream we have ever tasted. The decadent graham cracker ice cream even had an occasional clump of graham cracker. We like this restaurant, and would go back just for the ice cream at meal's end."

  • "Living in Greenwood, we normally don't dine out up north, but was very impressed with your restaurant and clientele. A more "mature not seniors" diners which was very refreshing as a "mature" diner myself. Will come back and check out Kona Jacks!"

    Dined on 11/27/2013
  • "Daddy Jack's and adjacent Kona Jack's (great seafood for heartland) offer two adjacent choices, both comfortable and with great service. Daddy Jack's named after founder's father. Comfortable Midwest version of Cheers. Typical pub fare and a few twists, well prepared. Consistent, dependable."

  • "Food and service were outstanding. Quick and awesome lunch!"
    Dined on 9/25/2013
  • "Food was very good. This is a good place to watch a game, have a drink and not have to eat "bar food". Sushi and seafood are the specialities. Service could have been better...we waited for drinks/refills too long. Waitress didn't check in enough."
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "We ate outside at Daddy Jacks the food was very good. The atmosphere outside is only so so - Looking at a praking lot is not so great, but the weater was great and that was our choice to eat there. They had a all you could eat ribs special which I enjoyed - they were fall off the bone great. A little to heavy on the barbeque sauce for my tatse but I would still recommend them. I had to rate rate Ambience and noise level - I'm sure inside the ambience and noise level would have ben rated quite differently."
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "Basically bar food, but upscale, really GOOD bar food, including fish. One of the few places in inland Indy to be sure of fresh-tasting fish, thanks to the fish market and restaurant next door, Kona Jack's."
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "Everything was perfect, our special request was met for a round table and we were seated promptly! The ribs were fantastic!!! We'll be back for sure"
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "We came for a down to earth, American food restaurant. I honestly think most of the dissatisfaction comes from a feeling that I paid way too much for so-so food. The appetizers were standard, Applebee's level quality. The ribs were actually pretty good, but our dates were very unimpressed with their salads, soups, and fish entrees."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "Food was excellent!!! Didn't feel hurried. Excellent service, was there when we needed something, but left us alone to enjoy our night with someone we hadn't seen in a long time. Later had a band next door enjoyed the music. Will definitely eat here again."
    Dined on 5/31/2013
  • "We didn't what to expect as we walked into the bar/pub. Since we not from the area we were looking for a place close to our Grandmothers home to take her out. Service was very good and meals were good to very good with large portions. Ambience is more of a bar but next time we are in town we will return!"

  • "Food was pretty good. Need a little more attention to detail on food - make sure its hot when served. Also, alfredo was a little thick on cajun chicken pasta - remember that it thickens as it stands. Flatbread app a little undercooked. Service good. Nice crowd, a little nousy, but its Saturday so to be expected. Overall good experience, just need a little more kitchen attention to bring additional quality to the end product."
