Great first time to this place.
Great first time to this place. The food was excellent and service was good. The one thing I noticed is that it took a bit to get our drinks the first time. Soda and water should be out quickly while people look over the menu. Overall it was a great time for our first time at this restaurant.

Jack's is a true neighborhood gem
We walked to Jack's after visiting the Barnes Foundation and enjoyed the walk through the neighborhood. Jack's location is convenient to any of Philadelphia's art venues. The service was very pleasant, and the atmosphere lively. The food was very good, and the assortment of breads that were served with our meal was a delicious and pleasant surprise - as were the cookies at the end of the meal. Jack's was a great find!

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening as the staff is very accommodating. Both our salad and main course were split for us in the kitchen which we really appreciated. The pecan crusted catfish was very good. Nice touch of chocolate chip cookies at the end of the meal.

Great time at Jack's Firehouse!!
Our family had a great brunch on Saturday (5/11/13). We had a large party (22) and everyone was so pleased with the food, the atmosphere and the service.
A special thank you to Stuart and the entire staff that helped manage our growing numbers!
The brunch menu offers excellent, high quality, and affordable choices if you are looking for something that is not a chain restaurant. We managed to find great food for our party - toddlers to senior citizens!

Great Food, Great Atmosphere
I had the delectable opportunity to take advantage of Jack's Firehouse Brunch menu. It was both eclectic and homey, with just enough choices to make it tough to decide. I had the apple salad with roasted salmon and my lunch guest had the same salad with chicken. My only criticism was the dressing - I could not taste the vinaigrette, but the greens were fresh, the salmon lush, and the service great. The atmosphere was lovely and I will definitely return.

Best BBQ we've ever had and we've been everywhere they make BBQ across the United States!! The pulled pork is out of this world. Can't wait to go back and try more of this phenominal menu. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

2yrs Starting off Right
I've been with my current girlfriend for 2 years, its the longest relationship I've been in and I needed this night to be great. I've heard of Jack's firehouse through friends and it turned into an amazing night.
The food was perfect! They had an amazing Banana and Peach Soup which my girlfriend died for, I enjoyed the fresh Tomatoes and Mozzarella. The waiter stopped by everything 5 minute just to ask how we were and to refill our water and drinks.
The main course and Hot and cooked to our liking. The ribs had amazing flavor and the chicken was so juicy.
I planned on coming back to Jack's at least once a month.

Food was very good
Overall the food was very good. However a few plates did not quite hit the mark. Great ambiance (old fire hall), our service was great & the establishment has excellent staying power as a restaurant that (i understand) started 20 to 30 years ago. We dined outside with a view of Eastern State Penitentiary. The exerience was a little pricey for what we got.

Went for Husband's birthday. Great location being across the street from Eastern State Penitentiary. Smelled the food and couldn't wait for our reservation. Experience was great. The food was amazing, we couldn't stop eating. The food was a little pricey, but definitely worth it! Would go there again without hesitation.

Loved everything. Highly recommend. The brunch was amazing and a great price for the quality

Great dining experience
The food was delicious and the service was good. Dining outside provided a nice view of the Eastern State Penitentiary.

There were two aspects of the meal that really stood out- the service and of course, the food. The waitress was very attentive and never left us alone for too long. With their dinners, they serve complimentary corn muffins and biscuits, complementary sides (mashed potatoes and collard greens) and complementary chocolate chip cookies for dessert. The entrees themselves were fabulous- we had the potato crusted salmon stuffed with crabmeat- crispy on the outside, buttery on the inside, and the strip steak with Gorgonzola butter. Delicious! The manager even came over to check on us during the meal. Overall very positive experience. Also, I appreciate their support of the Philadelphia Fire Department.

Simple yet great!
Firehouses are known for good food and good times along with the difficult job that those stationed there do. Jack's has once again not disappointed and provided a great meal at fair prices. Service was attentive and the outdoor area was great for a small business lunch meeting.
I find the place great for these types of affairs, not far from my office, convenient parking and always a good experience.

Jack's Firehouse lunch
Our party of five arrived at noon - this was the last lunch for our three guests before they departed for their home in Germany. They were impressed when the waiter brought "greetings from the chef," a basket of biscuits and muffins, with butter and a side of cherries. We ordered a variety from their menu, and our meals were delicious. Service was prompt and very courteous. Our guests from Germany were very pleased to be eating in a restaurant that was not air conditioned (the weather was quite comfortable indoors and out). The view from our table was through the open firehouse garage door, the walls if the old penitentiary across the street. After our meal the waiter brought complimentary pastries. Very pleasant lunch, highly recommended.

Since my Open Table reservation
Since my Open Table reservation times were limited - I was glad they could accomadate us at the time I preferred. Used OpenTable but wasn't getting points anyway. Like this place a lot!

We traveled to Philly this
We traveled to Philly this past weekend to see the Eastern State Penitentiary. We heard Jack's was good and close to the prison, but we didn't realize how close, less than a block, which was really convenient! They had beautiful outdoor seating and cozy indoor seating, which is where we sat. The waiter was super friendly and attentive and offered some spot on suggestions for us out of towners. We had pulled pork on spiced corn chips (where have they been all my life?) and Philly cheesesteaks. The hand cut fries were the best we've had!
Great brunch/lunch spot!

We brought a guest from our out-of-town corporate office here for dinner, and the place did not disappoint. Dinner was during the week, and the restaurant was relatively quiet but the food was excellent and the menu offered several options that were beyond the ordinary and gave us an opportunity to try different selections. The wine list had sufficient selections and we felt did not gouge the public in pricing. From appetizers to dessert, our dining experience was excellent.

Wonderful lunch spot
Jacks is a great spot for lunch ! It's only a few blacks from the phildelphia art museum. The food was great, the service was excellent and the ambience in an old fire station was really unique. Would highly recommend

The best lunch
Jack's Firehouse, a trusted gem of Philadelphia, is a wonderful lunch place as not too many 4 star restaurants are open for lunch on Tuesday in the Fairmont and Art Museum section!! We enjoyed our lunch immensely and I recommend it for business lunches.

Lunch was perfect
I've been looking for good lunch meeting spots and I've found one. There is free on street parking and that's a huge benefit. The staff was friendly and attentive from the moment I entered. My food looked good, smelled great, and tasted amazing. I was on the phone working and raving about the food throughout my meal. I will return.
