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.

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

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!

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....

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

I won't go back. I never give bad reviews, but this is certainly not a fine steak place, not even close.
The Good: nice ambiance, excellent fries and creamed spinach, nice desserts.
The bad: dirty steak knife (Yuk) to start with, They didn't have T-Bone the night I was there, so I had New York Strip (the full size). Cooked to perfection but I can't believe it was a strip steak. If it really was, it was such poor quality. I ate it, but really didn't want to. It was cooked properly, so I kept eating. The waiter never came over to ask how the food was, which is expected in a "nice" restaurant. 1/3 cheaper than nearby steak places, but this is a poor imitation.

We sat at the bar for a couple of drinks as the 7 members of our party drifted in and were immediately made to feel at home by manager Bill Brennan. We really had a great time together thanks to the wonderful staff, the excellent food and our being in a semi-private room downstairs. We were a party of 7 people telling funny stories and having a great time without having to worry about disturbing other diners because we were seated in their downstairs dining room which was perfect. Our waiter was super attentive to all of us and quickly took our orders and made some great recommendations in the process. We ordered the thick cut bacon, baked claims, octopus (recommended by waiter was outstanding so we ordered a 2nd plate), and lobster avocado salads for appetizers. My girlfriend and I ordered the porterhouse for two which was cooked to perfection and so very tasty, as were the sides. I don’t know how we did it, but after feasting on our steaks we ordered various desserts and coffee for the table. All were fabulous! Great job Uncle Jack’s!

The best steak in NY isn't in Manhattan but in Bayside. 4 of us had the 16 oz. Kobe Beef (from Japan) and the 44 oz. Ribeye. From now on, the Kobe beef will always be on my plate when I'm at Uncle Jack's. We all agreed it was the best steak we've ever eaten (and we're in our 60's.) Great service - down to earth. The mashed potatoes and asparagus were exquisitely prepared. Chocolate Mousse and NY Cheesecake were outstanding with strong black coffee.
