Diner Reviews
  • "First time dinning at the restaurant. I've been wanting to go for years since seeing Restaurant Steakhouse on Food Network. Love the way Willy runs things and his shirts. I've bought a few shirts that he wears on TV. I manage a 325 seat restaurant and this is the exact way every restaurant needs to be run. The hostess was great and the waiter was even more amazing. He was very knowledgable from the food to the wine. Will go back again!"

  • "We went here to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We had a gift card from our children that we were happy to use. We ordered the Surf & Turf dinner for 2 @ $99. On the website, it said that we would share either a filet mignon or strip steak AND a 2 lb. lobster. Well, the strip steak was delicious, but we were VERY disappointed that there was no 2 lb. lobster. Our waiter did tell us when we ordered that there was not going to be a lobster, but that there would be a lobster tail. We shared a SMALL lobster tail--certainly no where near 2 lbs. All the same cost of $99!! They should have reflected this substitution in the price!! Service was good, but I feel we didn't get what was advertised and were charged same price for it! Will not return"

  • "A well run restaurant with excellent food choices and excellent service. Wait staff took care of responsibilities without imposing themselves every few minutes, which allowed us to enjoy each other's company and conversation. We were not rushed through the meal, allowed to take our time to make choices and the wait staff seemed happy to serve. Prices are consistent with the quality of the food."

  • "I have been coming here since early 2000. It's a ok steakhouse, but no where close to the best around and just not consistent. In the past I have had some great steaks and other times just average, or once I had to even send the steak back. Their prices are through the roof. If you want a great porterhouse this is not the place to go... its just ok....and when the bill comes out to $150 per person it makes it totally not worth it. Too bad this is the only high end restaurant on Bell Blvd."

  • "I want to start off with the service, which was excellent! The waiter knew the menu front to back and made sure we were taken care of. They remembered our 1st year wedding anniversary and surprised us with a chocolate Sufle cake, which was awesome. Lastly, the steak was juicy and cooked well. I had the 24ounce NY strip. I will be going back soon!"

  • "From the moment you enter you are treated like a valued customer from the Valet attendant to the hostess to the waiters to the serving staff and the most gracious manager visiting all tables. Food was off the chart as our family has been accustomed to. We live in NE Iowa and make two or three trips to NY yearly and on each visit there is at least one dinner at Uncle Jack's"

  • "We were taking some family to celebrate an anniversary. It started with 2 couples and at the last minute changed to a group of 7 people. Jack's was quickly able to accommodate this change. Our waiter was great, making sure everyone got exactly what they wanted, even making some dinners that were not on the menu! The prime rib was wonderful, as was the steak for 2. The desserts were delicious, we shared pecan pie, banana cream pie and chocolate lava cake. We all came from different places and chose Uncle Jack's by location and reputation and no one was disappointed!!"

  • "I was really looking forward to trying Uncle Jack's in Bayside. I bought a Groupon. The food both quality and portions were very good. I felt cramped and the noise level for a high end restaurant was much too loud. I couldn't hold a conversation with the person across from me. Another thing is that the wine should not be kept on the ledge behind the tables. The waiter has to reach over the person sitting at the table in order to get a bottle of wine."

  • "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."

  • "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."
