Good food and excellent service made for a delightful lunch with friends
The food we ordered was excellent. We had a choice of expensive and inexpensive meals. Our son got a New York Strip Steak. He said it was very good. Two of us had tenderloin, one chicken and the last was a Shrimp salad. Everything was sooo good. The menu had something for everyone and it all was delicious.
Excellent, friendly service from our waitress.
Disappointed after searching Open Table website and the "top" reviews for this restaurant. I have never visited this area and this restaurant was ranked in as Number one for "chef" prepared fresh food. Not impressed. The place itself has been in business over 20 years and the décor looks just like it did when it opened, I am sure. The food was not any better. Typical bar food, however, the steaks are rated excellent, although I did not choose to order, just because of the outrageous price. I will not recommend nor will I ever visit again.
Very nice, food is always exceptional!
Our server was great!
Went to Daddy Jacks for the first time. Enjoyed it very much. The portions are huge ! Had the walleye and it was excellent. Would definitely recommend this place and will return.
Great meal, great service. Awesome!! We had a great time with friends.
This is our “go to” place for lunch gatherings. Especially appreciate the wait staff who are always available but never pressure us to finish our meal and leave.
We have been to Kona Jack's once and it was good. We decided to try Daddy Jack's on a whim. It had availability on a Friday night last minute. I gor the Rib special all you can eat. They put onions and scallions on top of nicely prepared ribs and a sauce that's really good in flavor. If you eat the rack, they bring you another half which I didn't need but the waitress suggested since I finished to go ahead and get half and take home if you want. We sat in a small room up front that was crowded and you can definitely hear all conversations so if that bothers you ask to sit elsewhere. The foord was delicious, service friendly and if we wanted to stay I think some live music was about to start in bar. No frills but great ambience.
Service was excellent; good food, prepared to our liking.
Waitress offered 4 kinds of soup to those around us but only one to us. This was after we decided on salads instead of soup. Well drinks are a good value and the food is generally always good.
It has been several years since I had been to Daddy Jack’s even though it’s only a few minutes from home. We had Valentine’s Day dinner there. The food was well-prepared and excellent (I had filet and lobster tail; my love had ribs and shrimp). Our server was very efficient and attentive. She had a very nice personality without being overbearing. Daddy Jack’s is still as crowded (getting past the bar) as ever, but that’s just part of Daddy Jack’s!! We should take advantage of its proximity more often!
One of our favorite places to go.
We have been going for 20 plus years.
everything was great until music in the back and we lost ability to converse sitting in back
You can always count on Daddy Jacks to be consistently good.
Wonderful food service was a tad slow but the food is so good so it didn't really matter !
Always a good meeting place. Reservations make sure that we get a table upon arrival. Wait staff is attentive but not intrusive. We never feel we are being pressured to finish so that a table can be turned.
Our server was OUTSTANDING! I have to use at least 50 characters so here is where I meet the required amount.
Service was good start to finish. Arrived shortly before 6:30, glad to have made a reservation. The layout is a little crowded, but enjoyed being able to talk with our neighboring diners and also enjoyed the diversity of folks. Started with clam chowder which was thick and tasty. Walleye was an excellent choice for the entree and the grilled asparagus was the perfect accompaniment. Hubby tried the grouper which was also very good. Portions for both were generous so there was no room for dessert, however, the neighbor's Key Lime pie slice looked delicious.
Good food in a warm inviting atmosphere with dark wood and old style green globe banker's lights on the walls made for an enjoyable relaxing night out.
Always has something for everyone and excellent service !
Food is always good. The service was spot on. Love that they take reservations.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Great menu, pleasant and efficient wait staff, always buzzing with locals who dine here often. A safe bet, especially for lunch. (Be sure to make reservations.)
Food is always good. Enjoy this neighborhood gem and the bands in the back room.
Daddy Jacks is a great long-established restaurant at the busy Meridian - 96th Intersection. It's adjacent to the unique Kona Jack's seafood restaurant that has a wonderful and eclectic seafood menu. I had a business lunch at Daddy Jacks and it's a good place to talk heavy business stuff. Good energy, no background music and the overall sound level doesn't impede conversation. I had a really unique salmon BLT...yes, you read it correctly. Healthy benefit of salmon and just enough "B" to feel like you've had the "unhealthy."
We love sushi at Daddy Jacks. And they have a great fish market too! (For the nights we want to cook at home)
We've been to Daddy Jack's many times over the years. Our experience this time however was less than great. We are meeting friends there for a get together and our server couldn't manage to refill our drinks. We are placed in a very odd shaped corner table for four people wear three of us were in the booth side and one of us was on the table side. We had reservations so I was very disappointed at where we are sat. We had to repeatedly ask server to take her order bring drink refills and she never actually came back to ask how her food was. Given the price of this restaurant I think it's a little ridiculous that you have a server working there that's so poor
We had to wait 20 minutes to get our order taken. We had to send someone to get our server.
Being I only had an hour for lunch, I pretty much had to inhale my food.
We love this restaurant but service was not very good on our last visit.
Honored the reservation and the table and it was waiting. Nice surprise. The ambiance was that of a nice local restaurant/bar. Good choice.
M y barbee pork was fair. I would not get it again. The other food was good.
Terrific opportunity for friends to meet. Excellent food choices moderately priced.
Our table was ready and waiting when we arrived. Our party had some business to conduct, and the wait staff was available but did not press us or interfere, and gave us adequate time to get things done, while making sure we had everything we needed. Whenever this group has a luncheon meeting we always select this location.
The salmon BLT special with sweet potato fries was delicious.
We had a great time with a friend. Food was fantastic as was the service.
We met relatives passing thru from Florida. Wanted good food and casual atmosphere, everyone agreed it was a good choice.
Excellent food, as always! Love the tenderloin, hot brown & salads!!
Eat at Daddy Jacks quite often. Enjoy being able to sit outside and having Angela as our server. Food is always very good, love the live music and the atmosphere is very relaxing. My only negative is that as you dine outside the ash tray is too close to some of the dinning tables. Smokers who choose to go outside need to be moved further away from your outdoor seating area. Mainly on the Pak Mail side of the outdoor area.
Food was ymmy & our waitress was awesome... Thank you
The food was excellent and the greeter at the front door is always so welcoming. We had reservations and they sat us at the exact seat I had asked for.
I had the Cobb Salad and it was excellent. My friend had the Chef Salad and enjoyed it also. We were able to talk a we went to an early dinner when it is not so crowded. The waitress was excellent.
