He gave great recommendations and made sure we were all taken care of, and he was just very pleasant overall. Definitely try the crab cakes and calamari appetizers, the scallop and rib eye steak entrees, and the chocolate bomb and creme brulee desserts; you will not regret it! It was a great experience - I can't wait to come back to California (from Maryland) and eat at Jack's again.
