a very good classic steakhouse, not at as beehive busy as Peter Lugars. Prices are on par with other upscale steakhouses

The food was excellent. However the portions were super-sized. I learned later that smaller portions are available on the bar menù. We'll go back but next time We'll ask for a table in the bar.

We are so thrilled to have discovered Ben and Jack's! The steaks are fabulous and I've finally found a place that serves baked clams. We are happy campers and looking forward to our next visit!

The best steakhouse in phoenix and scottsdale !! Better than Peter Lugar's which is the best steakhouse in NY. We had great service. Can't wait to go back. We have bed there 5 times !!! Two times we ate at the bar/. Great bartender. He knows a lot about wins.

Too bad nobody knows about this place. Went on a Sunday night and there were a total of five tables filled, including us.

Excellent steak! Clearly the Peter Luger "style" shines through. The Steak for Two was great, perfectly prepared. Wine list looks good and for PHX, on the moderate pricing side. Not as extensive as Capital Grille or Durants, but good. Location is a little funky, especially the parking. Overall I would go back. More laid back than other steak joints, terrific service and a nice change of pace. Bring your wallet, it's not cheap.

Food and service were quite good. Surprised that their were so few tables occupied on a Sunday evening (Mother's Day.) They do a great job without trying to be something other than a great steakhouse.

Although, located in the heart
Although, located in the heart of the most touristy of tourist spots in Arizona, Ben and Jack's seemed to have an overall ambiance of a neighborhood restaurant. Taken in its entirety, B&J's is a very good restaurant. The prices are more in line with tourist restaurants but the quality of the food makes up for that.

Restaurant week review
Went there early on Tuesday evening during restaurant week. The restaurant was pretty empty, which meant we got really good service. The overall meal was very nice but not super special. Steaks were very good but the rest of the meal was pretty average.
I would suggest they find some way to separate the dining room from the entrance as the front door allows the outside to pierce into what could be a nice atmosphere.

This was your typical upscale steakhouse. The only request would have been that the service was a little too fast. The restaurant menu for restaurant week was good. However, I would have preferred the filet mignon without the gravy.

Great Food, standoffish-service.
My wife and I decided to dine at Ben and Jack's a few nights ago. The food was amazingly good. The veal chop was a good portion size, I say maybe around 20 oz. and the seabass was a very nice portion, as well. The service, although not terrible, is not the bright spot of the restaurant. I wouldn't say they are rude, but just short and to the point. We were able to get a few smiles out of our server though! :) When we arrived there was only one guest at the bar, with no other tables in the main dining room. Another table did not show up until we were 45 minutes into our meal. When we left there were only two other tables in the main dining room. I hope the stay in business because they do have great food.

excellent NY quality steaks that would make the Peter Lugar crowd happy. HOWEVER, restaurant absolutely empty at 7 PM on a Friday night, making the atmosphere uncomfortable. Service top notch.

Beef to die for!
The steaks are the best we've had.....period.
The summer special is an absolute bargain.

My husband and I dined on a Thursday night for our anniversary. It was a quiet evening with very few customers, but we didn't mind. Both the service and meal was impeccable. We highly recommend Ben & Jack's.

Best steakhouse in Phoenix.
Best steakhouse in Phoenix. Porterhouse for two is fantastic but could probably feed three.

If you are a steak lover, this is the place for you! Best steak we've had since leaving NY! Caesar salad was very good, and the sautéed asparagus excellent as well. Service was excellent. No rushed feeling and no waiting. Great balance.

Everything about the dining experience was excellent. The service was quick and friendly. The food was outstanding. The filet was very tender and perfectly cooked.

The meal was delicious. The only problem was the portion size was ok for a 12 year old. We took friends there from out of town and I was embarrassed at the amount of food we received. I realize it was restaurant week but for $40.00 per person it wasn't worth it. I don't think I'll be returning.

Food Temperature is IMPORTANT
First visit to Ben & Jacks. Nice looking place. They hadn't lost our reservation, which was unusual anymore. Parking was a little weird... instead of a valet, they just had a girl wandering around outside, and she finally told us that she's open the gate to the parking lot upon our departure. Note to owner... invest in a valet to avoid any confusion.
Wait staff was very friendly and competent. Wine list was vast, unless you're ordering by the glass. The by the glass list was less than impressive for such an upscale establishment.
Only complaint - the filet I had did not come from the kitchen hot. It wasn't cool enough to send back, but all the great steakhouses bring a sizzling piece of meat to the table. Completely missed that mark.

This is a very good restaurant. Great wine selection. The porterhouse steak for three was enough for the four of us and was excellent. Great service!

This is a first-rate store. A bit on the pricey side, but great food and service. Convenient to Scottsdale Civic Center.

Yum, Yum, Yum
That's right, the food was outstanding. The air was filled with cordial warmth, the staff were excellent in all ways. We went to celebrate my son's 47th birthday and he enjoyed it without saying.

Everything was superb! The portion was so large we took it home and made a second meal. Our waiter was very good, seemed very well trained to alter his service to fit our needs. When we go back there, we will definitely request him.

Excellent food and the service
Excellent food and the service is great. By far one of the best in the entire valley.

One of the best
We heard about this restaurant from our hotel and were told that it was similar to Peter Lugar's (which we are big fans of). So we tried it, ad were so happy we did. Everything was excellent. The steak for two was delicious - one of the top we have ever eaten, and we have been to all the big steakhouses. The service was great and the ambience was elegant. Highly recommended!!

Our first time at Ben and
Our first time at Ben and Jack's. We went for dinner at 6:15, dining room empty but was filling up as the evening progressed. Not very busy for a Friday evening. The bar was very lively with a piano player and dancing. Next time we will try the bar but the food and service were superb in the dining room! Wonderful Rib Eye steak and German potatoes.

Others do not compare.
This place is the real deal. Best porterhouse in town. It's very much like Lugers in NY.the onion rings are terrific too. They are never really crowded,but they should be. It's that good. Service is professional and non-intrusive and very well paced.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'm from NY and Chicago, both great food cities, and Ben and Jack's equals the beef I've eaten in my previous two home states. If you're looking for a great steak, put Ben and Jack's on your list.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best steak I have ever had hands down! The portions are big and the quality is on point. The last time I had dry aged beef this good was back in NY. The live music was an addition to our overall experience. I know we'll be coming back!
