Both times I ate at Jack's I ordered the veal parm with angel hair pasta. The first time it was perfect. Personally, I like a slightly thicker sauce but it was really flavorful so I didn't mind. The second time the veal was just average. They also didn't have bread yet, although having bread AND pasta seems like carb-overload. I... More

We have always heard great reviews about Jack's Restaurant, but we had never tried it. We could not believe the quality and quantity of our meals, more than enough for the next day. Our waitress was great very attentive through out our meal. It has become one of our regular favorites.

Went with family of 4. Was pricier than we anticipated. Raviolis very undercooked (and I like al dente). Chicken dish was plentiful but a bit rubbery for the $16 price. Got to say just average

This is a casual place. Food is excellent, large portions at reasonable prices. You'll definitely need an APPETITE to eat here and expect to bring home a doggie bag! The waitstaff is very friendly, professional and efficient. They also take the time to come to the table to make sure the food is served properly. Stuffed mushroom and shrimp cocktail... More

The daily specials are delicious; I've tried them all (i.e. eggplant; veal; chicken cutlet; etc. and they also have dinner specials such as Turkey Dinner and it was delicious; great portions and great prices ..... I forgot their desserts are to die for as well

I ordered veal cutlet with spaghetti. This is a restaurant opened by a police officer. So because police officers like to eat you would think the food would be good. I could smell the burnt red sauce as soon as my meal was delivered. I told the waitress and she "couldn't believe it". "We make our own sauce and people... More

People at the bar are regulars. This is a casual place. Food sometimes is excellent, and sometimes average. Usually pretty good value.

You are welcomed when you arrive, asked how your meal is while you are eating, and thanked as you leave...usually by the owner, Jack. The food is delicious, plentiful, and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. Plenty of free parking. Nice, friendly local clientele.

A little pricey for pretty basic Italian food, but very good and the food was well done. Nice "town" atmosphere, good service.

A "locals" staple for Italian cuisine featuring large portions of parmigiana's, marsala's and francese's. Small local eatery, good service. Pro's.....Good portions, tasty chicken, veal & shrimp dishes, attentive service. Cons.....Gravy had a somewhat burnt taste, Update menu prices on website, as prices were 10-20% higher at restaurant from website, owner walks the restaurant checking on parties of 4 or more,...
