Service was Great, Steaks were ok!! – I recently tried Uncle Jack's for the first time. As a long time resident of bayside I decided it was time. I love steaks and have been to what people would consider the best steak house in the city. ie. Sparks, Peter Luger, Morton's, Gallagher's, STK, and several others.
I will say that there service rivals and surpassed many of the others. When we arrived they gave us the last table available, which was the worst in the house. The hostess already knew we weren't happy with the table and gave us the option of moving after a better one opened up. We didn't even ask her, which I found to be a nice change, considering many of the high end steak Houses treat you like your lucky to be eating in the resturant.
As for the food it was good. Definitely pricey, apps were 24 and 26 dollars. Steaks were good, not super good but good, and at the top of the price range. They were cooked perfect. The atmosphere was not as snooty as I was expecting.
I would go there again, if someone else was footing the bill. Over all pretty damn good!
Probably the best in town – After so many good words i have not less to say, that this place rocks!
Everything is great, the price, the taste, the employees, everything.
I loved how fast they servicing, and how affordable is everything in there.
Only 2 Cappuchino left? ran out of Bread at 8 pm? – We reserved a table for 6 in advance for my sons Birthday dinner on a Saturday evening. We were seated under the serving window in a cramped corner. horrible, had to watch for elbows in the head, etc. The drinks were weak, for the price they charge, could have put a whole shot in, right? They gave us 2 pieces of fennel bread for the whole table, we asked for more and they said they had no more. The butter was frozen (right out of a freezer)., the service was awful..we had to flag down a waiter for 6 Cappuchino's at the end of our dinner. Didn't get them either.. what I'd like to know is, how can an over priced steakhouse run out of bread in the middle of dinner service and how can they have only 2 cappuchino's in the joint?? Why would that be? aren't they made fresh for each patron at the time of their order? I have never given a review unless it was a good one.. but i had to speak up for Uncle Jack's.. Tracy our waiter suggested the bone in filet minion as the best in the house.. it tasted pretty good after I cut away all the grizzle and such (never had that on a filet minion before) and the price was higher for the bone?? Overall, it was a terrible experience.. I won't even get into the rest rooms downstairs..
If you want a great steak in a wonderful atmosphere, go to Morton's.. This place sucked big time !!!
Best steak ever! – love the atmosphere, location and food! Great food
Hit or Miss – I have to say that the place is somewhat cozy, The traditional interior of a steakhouse is very becoming and appropiate. Fot the Money It's been hit or miss in my experience. There are plenty of Steakhouses in Queens that are more consistent in product.
The appetizers are fine, the steaks are not representative of the prices but not bad at all.
Club Music? – My boyfriend and I like to go to Uncle Jack's for cocktails either before or after having dinner elsewhere. The last two times we went, the drinks were terrible, as well as over-priced. What made the experience even worse was the horrible, loud club music they were playing. The restaurant's decor and atmosphere call for something more along the lines of Frank Sinatra or Ella Fitzgerald. For a "classy" restaurant, the pumping dance music was a big turn-off!! We will have our martinis someplace else next time.
WARNING read an update on this place – This place went bad, many people talking about it, and I experienced it. So now you get bad steaks, overpriced and a crew that feels they are better than everything.
DONT GO HERE, dont listen to the fools who claim its good, many places during down times hire cheaper people and buy cheaper food.
If you cant help it but must listen to people, order take out and eat it in a local emergency room under the supervision of experts.
I was there on a saturday, many people where there, because you sit on top of each other in this crampy place NOT COZY crampy, you can hear others choking up the cardboard too.
The highlight was someone that was dressed normal being told about a dresscode, I didnt hear specifics, but this place and a dresscode = a comedy show.
SO MY ADVICE dont listen to your friends who feel its cool to repeat or refer you to places they havent been to a while, you will feel robbed and annoyed and possibly sick when uncle jacks is done with ya
The best steak house in NYC – I have been to all the big and popular steak houses in New York and I find Uncle Jacks to be the best. Peter Lugers has a better steak then Uncle Jacks but not by much. Uncle Jack's steak is melt in your mouth, there appetizer are amazing and the lobster tails are one of the best i've ever had. The service at Uncle Jacks is amazing, I have not had an emptly glass for more then 30 seconds while dinning there.
Overall the experience and atmosphere of Uncle Jack's surpasses any other steak house I have been to. Like I said Luggers had a slightly better steak but I really did not like the atmosphere of the fact I had to sit on a wooden bench while eating at a steak house.
the best for steak – hands down my favorite restaurant ever. i don't even get anything fancy, but any chef who can make my steak actually well-done, but still melt-in-my-mouth delicious wins at life. every details of the food is interesting and delicious and the flavors melt together in the most perfect and sometimes unusual ways. I would recommend to anyone who want to eat well prepeared steak in Manhattan
Best Steakhouse in Bayside, Queens! – Best steakhouse in this area!!! Highly recommended excellent service and food....Now, please do not go here and order fish....it is okay, not great, but you are going to a STEAKHOUSE....if you stick with the usual porterhouse for two I guarantee you will be 100% satisfied...ohh and the crab cakes are also worth it for appetizer! Best I have had in a long time!!!
