Another excellent meal at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. We thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp cocktail, the baked clams, the caesar salad and the filet mignons which were perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the garlic mashed potatoes, the sweet potato fries and the creamed corn. The banana cream pie dessert was amazing. I highly recommend this steakhouse to all lovers of steaks.

It was an awful experience.
From the Valet cursing at me for not tipping him what he wanted to the manager's indifference when I brought the issue to is attention.
The food was subpar.
Bone in rib eye was ridiculously small for the price and was awful.
While waiting for my car I had to endure smoking right outside the restaurant's door.
Brought it to the attention of management and again indifference.
Overall an awful experience which I will communicate far and wide.
Stay away.

Uncle Jack's on 9th avenue restaurant much better

We went to Uncle Jack's for my birthday dinner and had a wonderful time. I had contacted the restaurant ahead of time that we were running about 15 minutes late and it was not a problem. We were seated right away. We had a nice table, the service was excellent. We ordered the seafood platter, the filet mignon which was perfectly cooked, the garlic mashed potatoes, the caesar salad an the exotic mushrooms. Everything was delicious. A great overall experience. Can't wait to come back.

My husband and I eat out frequently. This steakhouse disappoints on all levels. The steak was lackluster as well as the sides. The house wine was not good either and the prices were Manhattan prices so, why bother? It is close to our house so, was really hoping we could make this a regular spot.

Our meal was as good as you can get. Uncle Jack's is as good as it gets. Of course it is a little pricey but it is was well worth it. I was there with my friend Debbie to celebrate her 50th birthday. The atmosphere and ambience was amazing. The restaurant is small but the atmosphere is incredible. There was a touch of class in the air as Sinatra was playing at a very discrete level. I had two Soli martinis which were impeccable. My friend Debbie had a red wine, which she said was very good. I had the Crab cake to start off while Debbie had the shrimp cocktail. Both were grade A. The crab cake was in a beautiful lobster glaze while the shrimps were huge and extremely flavorful. We both had salads. I had the lobster and avacodo salad, while she had the wedge salad. They both were out of this world. The lobster was so tender it could melt in your mouth. We both raved about the salad. Then our main course came, we both had the surf and turf which was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The lobster was smotth and tender. Not rubbery at all. The filet mignon was so tender it could melt in yoru mouth. Our server, Tracy who was top notch and an overall nice guy, then surprised Debbie with a beautiful chocolate cake. This cake was to die for. Tracy didn't sing Happy Birthday because we looked like we weren't the type and he was right ha ha. I had the pecan pie. It was the best piece of pie Iever had. Debbie had a Bailey's to finish the night off. Tracy and the staff were on point delivering our drinks and refilling our water. I also use a wheelchair so the staff put me in a great spot, they were very accomodating to my needs and also escorted me to the wheelchair bathroom which is on the first floor (The other bathroms are downstairs.) Kudos to the staff. Overall this was the best dining experience I have ever had with a courteous, competant staff. I highly reccomend this restaurant. It made a special night for me and Debbie even more special,

My only comment, is that I felt rushed during dinner, plus it was a Birthday celebration and when the candle with dessert came out, it would have been nice to have the staff sing Happy Birthday. Otherwise the food was excellent.

First time to this restaurant but planning on coming back. Everything we ordered was delicious! Steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very friendly with great recommendations on what to order from the extensive menu. We came with family and everyone including my picky kids loved the meal.
Looking forward to coming back ! Also FYI Sunday kids under 12 have free menu. Very nice and unexpected touch !

Ended up in basement because we thsught it would be quieter than sitting at table by the bar
Two tables of 6 followed us could not hear each other
Since we where downstairs it appeared we were second cousins to upstairs
Water glasses are small and had to request refills when someone was around
Food was well prepared and tasty

Uncle Jack's is our first go-to for a special occasion however it is also our place for a delicious cut of steak any time. Each type of aged beef is tender and delicious an we've tried most of them! I can't say enough about the appetizer selection and highly recommend everything on the menu. We usually order two or four to share at the table. Last night was the (enormous) shrimp cocktail, maple coated bacon, crab cakes and bacon wrapped jumbo shrimps. For a side dish, don't miss the Lobster Mac and Cheese if it's one of the specials. All in all a terrific evening!

We felt that the Porterhouse for two was cooked perfectly but lacked a decent flavor .Definitely not worth the $110 charger. The Mac and Cheese was good, not so much the creamed corn. We will not be returning.
