Porterhouse for Two
Features Both The Filet And The New York Strip Cut
My family loves having dinner here, great quality and wonderful customer service.
Service good. Food ok… porter house for 2 def priced more than most steakhouses. Doesn’t come out sizzling. Not worth $150,,,,
Love this place
At the end of the day, Uncle Jack's is a NY steakhouse!!!!
Great environment, great food and drinks - wonderful hospitality! Can’t wait to go again!!
Great all around establishment
I don't like to eat out at restaurants unless I believe I can enjoy something there that I can't prepare at home and/or I'm confident that the establishment will provide a special experience. On both these accounts, Uncle Jack's doesn't disappoint.
From the maitre d' to the server and the bus staff, everyone was friendly, welcoming, helpful, courteous, and created a wonderful environment in which to enjoy a meal. The food was fantastic, the steak was perfectly prepared, and the presentation was beautiful. This meal made for a wonderful long awaited date night with my wife after many months of eating at home. It was fun to be in a classic steakhouse and to enjoy a steak that was much better than I was capable of preparing at home.
The choice of music of jazz vocalists and big band music from the '40's through the '60's was a perfect accompaniment to the meal. The volume was just right, though I'd suggest that the restaurant adjust the EQ on the sound system to even out the balance between the bass and treble frequencies as the music can often sound very bass heavy in this acoustic environment.
I'd highly recommend Uncle Jack's, and I look forward to returning soon!
Great place - Great service - Great meal
Consistent quality food and ambiance
We had a wonderful time. Spiro was our waiter and he was magnificent. He helped to make our evening more special with his excellent and attentive service. The lobster tail was the biggest I’ve ever seen and delicious and well as the 120 day aged steak. Everything was delicious and the bartender was really good.
My aunts birthday
Amazing food and service. They treated me like a real birthday Queen.
Best steakhouse experience by far
Excellent!good food! Good service. Nice ambiance! Delicious!
Delicious food and great service. We had a nice dining experience.
The food was amazing. We had the lamb lollipops, special surf and turf for 2, and creme brûlée. Everything was perfectly done. The atmosphere is quiet...a little too quiet. I like some background music or something to help the ambiance.
Service was impeccable . Oysters were so delicious were ordered another dozen. Martini’s were perfect. We all ordered tomahawk steaks , my husband & I shared a 44 ounce and our friends each ordered the 24 once individuals. Though tasty, they were a bit fatty and hard to cut. The chef actually sent out another one for our friend and sent us Deseret that was amazing. I am all about service. You couldn’t ask for better. Our waiter was amazing He was sweet, attentive and personably. The servers were on point. I saw the same happening at the tables around us these people aim to please. It is a bit pricy , it”s a steakhouse they normally are, what it isn’t is noisy. You can hear yourself think and enjoy your conversations. W will most definitely be back.
Food was all delicious (grilled octopus to start, filet mignon and porterhouse for two, corn and bacon brulee, creamed spinach, tiramisu and peanut pie). Wine was also great, as well as service. Will definitely come back!
The entire staff was very attentive. personable and thoughtful. Food was cooked to perfection. No salt/pepper needed.
Dessert sampler was tasty.
my favorites were the lollipop lambchops, thick cut maple bacon. don julio margarita and the porkchop...
We will be back
I held a business dinner here. The service was great, and very attentive. The steak for 2 was cooked perfectly. The restaurant is lively but not at all noisy. The atmosphere is classic steakhouse. Most definitely worth a visit. I will be back!
Date night for my husband and I. We came from Port Jefferson Station. We’ve been here before, we knew exactly what we were going for. A romantic night out. It was just that. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and over all it was a perfect evening out. I love Uncle Jacks and I’ll always choose here for an amazing dinner night out!
Outstanding food and service. Perfect for an intimate date. Loved it!
The menu is not cheap. But their food is worth it. A great steakhouse to check out for special occasions.
Food was great atmosphere was great
This place felt like stepping into a time machine. The ambiance was old school rat pack elegance. And the manager Bill couldn’t have been a better host to the experience. Our server was also quite adept. He knew when to come and when to let us stay immersed in conversation. The bone-in filet mignon was beyond description. Will most definitely be going back.
From walking in and Brian the manager greeting us started what would turn out to be the most amazing experience in a steak house and I have been to quite a few the service our waiter spiro and the entire staff to the amazing food seafood tower bacon yaba Daba tomahawk the sides the cocktails to the finale dessert I rate uncle Jack’s a perfect 10 or should I say 1000 tk u you Brian and spiro and we will most definitely be back
We came in to enjoy a family meal for Fathers Day and I can say that we had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We had a party of five and the price for the value of the food was better than I thought. We have eaten at other jig end steakhouses and have to say the Uncle Jacks in Bayside is my number one choice.
Excellent service as always. Waiters are always right there when you need them. Porterhouse for 2 is incredible. Can’t wait to go back.
THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL. Trust me on this. Ordered appetisers which arrived 4 minutes after being seated. The entree arrived 5 minutes after the appetisers. Waiter was very attentive and was kind and courteous. Had to give him a $100 tip.. IT WAS THAT GOOD FOLKS. Oh try the "Fred Flintone" tomahawk.. Dry aged to perfection. It was the juiciest steak i've ever had in my life. Wife ordered the lobster tail. OH MY GOD.. Was this thing shipped from Chernobyl? I never knew lobster grew to that size.
This is now my default steak house. Damm and I was just going on a diet.. Oh well
Always love uncle jacks
We have been going to Uncle Jack's for years and have always enjoyed our meals. Last night we had three different cuts of steak between us, all were outstanding. The bartender, (Danny), made terrific cocktails. Service was impeccable and our water glasses were kept filled with nice cold water. The desserts were to die for! So delicious were all three of the desserts we had. Bill, the Maitre D', was wonderfully personable, and helped make our dining experience even more enjoyable. We highly recommend Uncle Jack's in Bayside and it will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants, and certainly our favorite in all of Queens and Long Island. Go enjoy!
Steak was not worth the money. Sides were cold. Drinks were decent. Service was very good. The service is the only thing worth the money
Business dinner, our waiter Spiro never allowed a wine glass to be empty, or water to get warm. Appetizers were great, Uncle Jack's bacon does not disappoint.
Steaks were good, onions & Garlic mash, cream spinach very good....
Everything was fine
I have been to Uncle Jacks several times an I have never, ever been disappointed. The food was magnificent and the service was exceptional. Spiros, our waiter, as well as the ancillary staff, were professional, accommodating and appropriately attentive.
The food was okay. The largest tomahawk steak was small and very fatty!
moved out of state, have not eaten there in 16 years, was as amazing as I remembered it!
Food (steak) was served cold.
The drinks were a lie. I had ask for gray goose martini and I was given kettle one served on an ice cream glass.
When I question the taste that is when The waiter said that they run out of gray goose especially on Friday night at 7:45 PM
Will never go back again or recommend this place to any of my friends
