Diner Reviews
  • "We have been to Uncle Jack's before and the food is always great. This time was no different. There was a screaming child there this time, though. Our steaks were great, the waiter, Rob, was great, but I would get dessert elsewhere next time."

  • "We had a great time here! We went to celebrate a recent event and were super happy we went here. The food was delicious, and we loved the baked clams and side dishes we got (creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes). The steak was perfectly cooked, nicely charred on the outside, and full of flavor. We have been watching Restaurant Stakeout for a while now, and jokingly we were saying "Oh maybe we will actually see him here!"..... little did we actually know, Willie Degel came in later and was just chilling at the bar like a regular. We couldn't believe our luck, and we ended up getting a picture with him and everything. He was really nice and obliged to taking a photo with my husband and I and we couldn't have been happier!"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our aniversary Saturday night and overall it was a very good experience. Our first visit and the service was excellant and so was my bone-in NY steak. We ordered the lobster appetizer and crab legs that were on special but they were not great based on our expectations. We were surprised with a complimentary chocolate cake dessert at the conclusion of dinner, which was also very good. We chose this place based on it being a reasonable drive from JFK airport, Willie Degal's reputation, and not wanting to go into Manhattan. The entire staff was very friendly and accomodating. We will definitley try Uncle Jack's again in the future."

  • "This is the best steakhouse in Queens! It was my second visit to Uncle Jack's in Bayside, and both occasions were superb. The service was a little bit better the first time, but it was a weeknight and less crowded that time, so its understandable. They have a great wine list with lots of variety and the food was just delicious. Our favorite appetizer is the meatballs and the house steak sauce is to die for. I truly enjoyed our recent visit and can't wait to go back again."

  • "Let's just say that at this level of dining we should have had a much better experience. Pretty much ruined the remainder of my wife's birthday. We are from the neighborhood and really appreciate having this caliber of restaurant nearby. It pains us to have to leave this type of review as we have a great affinity for this establishment. We hope to be back some day but not for a while."

  • "I really like this place, and have always thought of it as a great neighborhood, higher end restaurant but with a comfortable surrounding. The maitre de was kind enough to hold the table for 2 when i called to tell her i was running late. The service and waiters, everyone is great."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Favorite steak house and all around best food anywhere; relaxed, never rushed service. Strawberry basil margarita was outstanding. Didn't add the last star as the Maitre 'd forgot to bring a fresh napkin & glass when asked"

  • "Four people, dinner, Saturday evening. Reservation was honored (table was waiting). The food was great and the service was terrific! The server was helpful and attentive but not annoying or pushy. One surprising bump though; upon ordering a second drink, I was informed that the restaurant had run out of Jameson Irish Whiskey."

  • "I went on a Sunday night for their steak and lobster special for two. The steak was just average and a very small piece. The lobster was supposed to be a 2 lb lobster. If it was a pound and a half I would be surprised. The service was terrible. They brought the wrong salad and then the wrong side dishes. By the time the correct side dishes came I wad done with my meal. It was a very disappointing meal. I would not recommend uncle Jacks, for the price of $160 I should not have left hungry."

  • "Went to uncle jacks with my wife for our 7 th wedding anniversary. Excellent service, great ambiance, amazing steak. Had porterhouse for 2 and it was perhaps the best steak I've had at a steakhouse ever (better than Ruth Chris, Fleming's, and Burton & Doyle). "

  • "I'm never disappointed when I come here. The service is was impeccable. I can't and I won't complain about anything. Tracy our waiter was friendly and very helpful with recommendations on the dinner menu. We ate family style, and every the was delicious. Please try the lamb lollipops and the five cheese Mac and cheese. And the porterhouse is to die for. Great service, great food! We will be back! "

  • "The food was good, but the steak was a little disappointing. I thought for aged steak it was slightly tough and also it had some burns on it. However, the restaurant had a fantastic atmosphere (lots of jazz) and good service. Overall a great restaurant, though on the pricey side."

  • "This was our 1st visit to this location. We were curious to see if all locations were operated the same. Our service from beginning to end was impeccable at the 38th & 8th location. At this Bayside Queens location however the hostess wasn't at the podium to greet us. The bartender did aknowledge us immediately though! He greeted us & fetched the hostess right away. We were greeted by her then and seated. Our 2 daughters were with us and the wait staff was particularly attentive to their needs. They accomodated my oldest daughters' vegetarian diet. My little one was very pleased that she was acknowledged as well. Fancy restaurants don't always do. Service and food were impeccable. We will always choose Uncle Jack's for our special occasion."
