Difficult to find as it is below another building but worth the search for the great food. The beef stroganoff is the best I have ever had. Bit pricey. Beer selection a bit wanting

Bar and food service presented as indifferent. Not a very large place and bar area is very small. Cocktails are overpriced as well as appetizers. Overall pretty average.

Right across the street from The Depot restaurant, and owned by the same people, this hidden gem is located inside the old jailhouse. The food is prepared with the same thought and care as the Depot. Don't miss it!

We went here for Mother's Day. I don't just give away 5 star reviews, this place really deserves it! Wonderful start to a great day. Our server, Jarod, was the epitome of personalized service! Every dish, from the appetizers to the dessert was excellent.

The food is wonderful, of course anything made by the Vartanians always is great. Have been here three or four times only and the service is not good. Always have to wait for anyone to ask for drink orders.

First time here at Jack and Charlie's. Food was good service was great. It is in the old jail down town Visalia. Thought it was a little dark and I'm Claustrophobic so I wasn't sure how I would do it was not bad.

I'm not sure who the builder was, but this restaurant was originally the Tulare County Jail, built in 1854. The jail cells were located downstairs where the restaurant is now located and the courthouse was upstairs.
