A decent steak house with good steak, sides, and appetizers. The bacon appetizer is a must try for first timers. Overall a good steakhouse to go to if you want to try something new and American.

Service was ok, but it was Valentine's Day and very busy, seating was the worst part very tight felt very uncomfortable sitting right next to the other table, we had to move tables every time someone needed to get up. A bit over priced .

My review is skewed since I went on Valentines day. Way , way overcrowded, 3 hour meal , service was tremendously slow and food was ok once it came out one item at time. I may try on a normal dinner service ... but would never recommend on Valentines day.

Top notch quality steaks prepared by experts in the craft. The only thing greater than the service is the steak.

Went here for my mom's 89th birthday. Sergio, our waiter, was fantastic. Friendly, helpful and treated my mother as the birthday girl she was. Had the seafood platter and Caesar salad as appetizers -- both excellent and enough for 6 people (which we were). We each had various kinds of steak. My filet mignon was perfect -- charred on the outside and juicy on the inside. Sides of garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach and brussel sprouts were all very tasty. Pecan pie was a good choice for dessert. Great food and very accommodating. It is pricey but everything was top level.

The bacon in maple sauce is an absolute must appetizer--delicious and good value. In contrast the Brazilian lobster tail was nothing special (a bit tough) and overpriced. The steaks are what you would expect from a Manhattan style steakhouse both in terms of quality and price. The house prosecco and cabernet were both solid. Dinner for two with 2 drinks each ran $280 before tip (those lobster tails) and so its not an every week restaurant. Parking is a real nightmare around the restaurant so plan accordingly. Second time I have been there and both times have been good experiences.

Been going to Uncle Jacks’s Steakhouse in Bayside Queens for several years now. The service and food and atmosphere is always excellent!

This is my 3rd visit. The appetizers, especially the bacon, are worth the trip. Generous portion and excellent quality.

Service is top-notch --- friendly, attentive waiters.

My only negative comment is that the lobster/avocado salad was light on the avocado, light on the lobster, and too heavy on the dressing. For $21 I'd expect more avocado, for sure.

So AFTER being seated we are told that most of the items on the brunch menu aren’t available because the kitchen “got a late start”. Really?? The options were a burger or an omelette and “maybe” you can get eggs Benedict. If they had said that before seating is we would have left. But they didn’t for obvious reasons because they know most people aren’t going to leave after they are seated. NEVER again.

Service was slow. Cocktails took forever. Water refill was a constant issue. But Food was outstanding

I've been going to Uncle Jack's for years & not just for special occasions. The menu options are excellent & their steaks are phenomenal & cooked to perfection! The crab cakes are unbelievable!! ! I've been to other steak houses, but Uncle Jack's is the best! I highly recommend! If you've never been there, give it a try. You will not be disappointed!!
