This was our fourth time dinning and our last. Brought out of town family here since we considered this to be the best of the best in Wilson. Service is better at local fast food places and the food was subpar.

Food was delicious. Wait staff was probably the best I have ever had wait on my wife and I. She very attentive and checked on us all the time. Meal was cooked as ordered. Wife has some food allergies and the worked with her really well. They took her request seriously, not like many places that don't want to work with you.

Everything we had was delicious up until the main course. Small plate steak was just ok. Neither good nor bad. No taste. Pineapple Martini was amazing. Sat us in bar area near the door and every time door was opened we felt a gush of cold air.

We go to Jac’s often. However our recent visit was not up to par. Things are different since the new ownership. Waited over an hour for our food and then they actually had it set up for takeout. It was not the server, she was fine. It was obviously a kitchen problem. Didn’t seem like there was a manager or anyone really in charge. One of the bartenders did come and speak with us and try to make things right. We will give them another chance however.

Food was good, fairly crowded for a Thursday night
Table was terribly small and we were squeezed between to other parties , basically sat right on top of them. One of the parties was pretty loud and annoying
No mention of the special occasion we were celebrating, so why even ask
We enjoyed the food but really could not wait to leave
That’s not a good recipe

We found Jacks on open table while traveling I -95 South.

We had a nice experience. The host offered a terrible table we declined, and got a better table. The bar area was nice & served dinner I noticed the lighting in the bar was like an operating room so bright. I guess they forget to dim them not very appealing.
A funny quirk , the water glasses were very nice stems one would use for wine .!!!! The wine we ordered by the glass was served in a cheap Libby . !!!
The filets were good the side veggies were over cooked. Ie green beans.

The service was a little slow but ok .

Nice quite dining room no one was shouting at each other.

The menu was truly diverse - specials included octopus (delicious!), pork belly, raw oysters, and different fresh catches. Our favorite dish was the Brussels Sprouts. Amazing. The drink menu has plenty on offer, and they were executed well. The dining room was lowly lit, and perfect for an intimate dinner or gathering with friends. Service was stellar. We skipped dessert, but the choices looked appetizing.

The menu changes, which is a good thing in our book. We will most definitely be going back.

I enjoyed the 8 oz filet with garlic potatoes and french green beans and my wife got the salmon with creamed spinach and roasted carrots. All was cooked perfectly!!! Service was good, pleasant and very friendly. This is the BEST of Wilson and everyone should embrace this restaurant.

Always good but excellent experience under new ownership. Wonderful flavors, options for smaller plates, and definitely a pastry chef on the dessert team. Glad to see families are welcome as well as couples out for a special evening.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our first dining experience at Jack's restaurant. The atmosphere was calm and intimate, perfect for dining as a couple or conversing with friends. The servers were friendly and professional. Most importantly, they were knowledgeable when it came to the menu. The dishes were appetizing when they came out and the flavors did not disappoint! We had the crispy brussel sprouts, fried pecans, cider roasted beets, hush puppies with pimento cheese dipping sauce, Wedge salad, fresh greens salad, French onion soup, coq au van blanc, braised pork belly, and grilled salmon bouillabaisse.

This was my first visit since Jack’s reopening. It was outstanding! The menu had many choices with small or large plates. The wedge salad was fresh and crisp with plenty of blue cheese crumbles and fresh dressing. I had the small ribeye plate which was as plentiful as most restaurants’ full entrees. Our waiter was Matthew who was very knowledgeable about menu and wine choices. I look forward to dining at Jack’s again!

Service was wonderful! Steak and the chicken were good. We also had the chili shrimp and pan seared scallops were ok. The pecans were not good at all. However the hushpuppies and pimento cheese were outstanding. We love the changes you made to the interior, but need to put the food back where it was. We would order the chicken and steak again as well as hush puppies but nothing else.

Second time going to Jack’s for dinner and another great experience. We had the charcuterie board and it was outstanding - several interesting options on it that you don’t find anywhere else. The porkchops were great and dessert was delicious as well. We had olive oil cake and sticky toffee pudding and both were great. Really nice staff- great drinks as well.

This was my second time dining at Jacks since the change. Both experiences were outstanding. Thank you for keeping up and possibly exceeding the standards of the former Jac’s. It’s my favorite dining restaurant in Wilson. Can’t wait for it to be open for lunch. I recommend the Southern Fried Quail. It was to die for. I look forward to trying some of the other “different for Wilson” dishes. I have NO complaints. We will return.

We were well pleased with the attention we received. We arrived early and they let us have our table. Our drinks, appetizers, salads and main courses arrived perfectly timed as well as well as perfectly prepared. The menu has many choices and we look forward to returning and trying some other items that caught our eye. All of us, including my restaurateur brother were impressed! Looking forward to lunch.

Dissapointed in Brunch menu, very limited, my wife got shrimp and grits and I got a hamburger, her entree was $1 cheaper than mine, go figure? This is my second visit since reopening and I am not impressed! Still hoping they will find a groove. The resume of the cheif/owner is outstandingly impressive,but the dining menu choices just does not match up. He needs to visit a couple of five star Raleigh resturants to see what customers are looking for. Will go back one more time, but not for Brunch!
