Everything was great from the food to service. It was a little cold because of the outdoor seating but otherwise great time and I definitely recommend it. Filet mignon was excellent!!

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.

Porterhouse seemed to have been cooked on a dirty grill, the char was excessive, and dirty. The sides and staff were fantastic but the porterhouse was subpar and when you go to a steakhouse all that really matters is the steak..

Food came quick! Prices were moderate! We ordered the 24 day aged bone in Ribeye. It was tender nicely charred and a perfect medium rare. The au jus was a nice touch! Will go there again!

Went for an early dinner... 5p reservations-
Started with the iceberg wedge, which is not our particular favorite ... they were out of 2 other salads we asked for...
Out of salad? ... that’s a new one.
But this is.... “Dinner in the age of Corona” so I’ll give Uncle Jack’s of Bayside a pass.
We ordered the bone-in Rib eye to share... which was absolutely perfect!!
Almost a Tomahawk style ... the bone was fairly large ... the steak was super tasty and tender.... fantastic cut of meat!
We also shared a lobster tail.... no 20oz ones as printed on the paper menu.... next size was a 28oz.... at $4 an ounce it’s $112...
It was broiled and thus came to the table with a bit of a char on the edges and kind of dry.... a bit of a disappointment.....
The creamed spinach was not as good as others I’ve had elsewhere.... or not as good as I’ve had at Uncle Jacks !

We had to sit outside on the sidewalk seeing as the five boroughs of New York don’t allow indoor dining yet .... it wasn’t horrible... but it was warm....

I’ve been to Uncle Jacks in Bayside dozens of times since they opened in 2003. This is a 4.5 star restaurant.... always top notch in my opinion.... however, for $112 .... the dry Lobster Tail gave this dinner 3 stars.... I will go back ... but for sure, I’ll stick with a steak and maybe the seafood tree next time....

Sorry, no food photos...

Excellent service and food. The DJ from another restaurant was annoying. Perhaps when inside dining opens, it will be a more classy atmosphere. Fabulous dinner

It's hard to go wrong, the food is excellent, the bacon apps, Wagyu Kobe Meatball apps, all great. 2 Porter houses for 2- 1 med and 1 med rare- exactly as ordered. The staff and service was excellent, polite, there if needed, but not on top of you.

Totally surprised when one of the manager came by with a free desert and said “heard there’s a birthday.”
I only mentioned dinner is for a bday celebration with OpenTable (on the “What’s the occasion” part) but I didn’t indicate anything on the part with special instructions/message to the restaurant and they still noticed that part of the reservation.
Of course free desert was nice but it’s the fact that they picked up that detail and acknowledged it (of course the food was great too) is what put the dinner experience over the edge. 👍👍👍👍👍
