We stopped at Jacks for Lunch on a Saturday afternoon. A really nice sunny day in September so we wanted the patio seating but it only had a two seat table left. The manager then quickly set us up by moving tables together( we had a party of six w/three teens) at the open front. We were able to enjoy the patio breeze while being inside! We ordered the spinich dip and nachos for apps, alongwith the mimosa's. Both were good ,the nachos were not the large heaping type though. ( the teens made quick work of it). Our waiter, who was great , attentive but not hovering, brought out our burgers cooked as we asked. Medium to well. He kept our drinks filled, and the mimosa's topped off. The choices of toppings were many but 4 of us chose the Jack burger. A really good tasting burger and bun. The whole meal was great. Will visit again soon.

I live close by to Jack and have been coming here for a few years now and also like bringing friends. I love going there for brunch because their brunch menu is great (plus Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's at one $3 each!) and you don't have to wait an hour for a table. The French toast is incredible. They have a few different varieties, all VERY thick cut brioche. The gingerbread French toast with apple compote is my favorite. Great salads, amazing and perfectly gooey baked mac & cheese. They also have a great idea on the dessert menu called Dessert Dollops, which basically gives you a few bites of dessert for a reduced price. Perfect if you want something sweet but don't feel like a full-size dessert. Service is friendly and generally good.

Have been to Jack several times and have always enjoyed the food and the service. The roast chicken was perfect and a friend tells me that the salad nicoise is the best she has ever had. The two entree special provided plenty of tasty food and a reduced-priced glass of very good wine. I recommend Jack for a pleasant evening.

I have had mixed experiences at Jacks over the years- amazing hanger steak and burgers, dry chicken and ehhh dips. Now with their light fare menu I am an avid fan. The brisket sandwich is the best I have had in NYC yet- and I have eaten at all the major barbeque places. It is homemade and delicious and $12.50- the rest of the light menu looks just as promising. RECOMMEND

I have been to Jack's three times in the past two months and have enjoyed it every time. It has a warm atmosphere, warm service and is confortably laid out. It is never crowded, and never empty. I have had the burger, the steak salad, the chili and various appetizers. All really good. Also, it is a great area. All in all I recommend it highly.

There are plenty of good eateries in the NYU/Union Sq. area, but it is hard to find a relatively inexpensive and yet good place. Jack could have been such place, with an inviting menu and reasonable prices. Too bad that the wonderful looking sandwich I got had so much oil you could hardly taste what was inside. The place has potential, but they need to work on the details.

Jack is a solid neighborhood spot with quality food at a reasonable price. I mostly order in from Jack and I have been quite happy with what I've eaten from there restaurant. My girlfriend loves the Spinach dip and thinks the salad's are quite good and I very much like the Roasted Chicken. We haven't been very adventurous with their menu to date, but plan on eating some other dishes from them when we next return. Sometimes we'll grab a bite in the restaurant and they've been very accomodating. The place is clean and well-managed and the staff is fairly friendly, which is always nice. I encourage everyone to give Jack a shot. I don't think you will be dissappointed. You won't be blown away, but they'll deliver consistency, which is always reassuring. I'd like to see people from the neighborhood eat there more often. Whenever I pass Jack, I always peek in and never see more than 6 or 7 tables filled. I worry about their livelihood if this continues to be the case. Give Jack a chance!
