I've attempted to eat here before but was turned away because I didn't make a reservation. This left a really bad taste in my mouth and I swore to never visit again. I enjoy a great steak and didn't want to go to far out of my way so I tried again this past Sunday. I made reservations and came here for brunch. I must say, it was well worth it! Great food. Great service. The brunch menu was great. They had surprisingly amazing coffee. I was very pleased. My brunch experience here will probably have me back for more. The prix fixe option was definitely worth it for the price. Loved everything!

Good steakhouse. Quality of the sirloin was good, not exceptional. Wine list not particularly user friendly- pretty high mark-ups. The cost of dinner there- it's very expensive- detracts a bit from the experience.

Food and drinks were top shelf! Porterhouse for 2 was cooked to perfect medium rare, and all other entrees were cooked to each specification expertly. The banana creme pie dessert should not be missed, but the best part of our night was to see Roman running the front of house! This guy has been taking care of my family for over 12 years and I look forward to many more great meals and seeing Roman at Uncle Jacks.

The food was as delicious as I expected. I loved the special of filet mignon wrapped in bacon. The appetizers were fun and delicious and served professionally.

The wait staff was so professional and attentive! The staff treated everything we wanted with the utmost importance and response! They themselves are worth the ride. Definitely right decision for an anniversary dinner. Will definitely be going back!

Appetizers were good. I ordered porter house for 2 and thought it was overlly cooked at the top. Compared to others, this restaurant needs to get it together and cook better steaks

Our porterhouse came out over charred (burnt black on top) so the server had a filet mignon redone for us on the house to accomodate and was friendly & professional throughout.

I've been to uncle jacks plenty of times and was always satisfied. This time it was not as expected. The quality of the steak was not as good as it used to be. I was also served a stale baked potato. They don't give you bread like they usually serve at every single restaurant I've been to. I was very disappointed. Also for a steak house, i ordered a glass of cab which they served in tumblers and was told we can only get a cab glass if we had ordered a bottle of wine. The waitor accomodated but was still weird to me. I am sad because this restaurant used to be comparable to Peter Lugars but now I will not come back.

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.

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.

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.
