    Lunch Review

    This place is right next to my job and since day one i've wanted to go here. I managed to slip in for lunch witha couple of friends and it wasn't bad! They have a great filet mignon sandwich with onions, kinda like a cheesesteak but much better! The service was very good and the atmosphere was very lush and luxurious. I've been to a lot of steakhouses, my fave of all time is the Luxor Steakhouse. The whole thing with Uncle Jack is that they thrive off of the fact that they have better service than the competition. I'll write a dinner review when my tax refund arrives.

    Dead meat

    Found a list of top 10 steakhouses in NY (we live in Brooklyn). Took this one as wine list was recommended. First thing guy in tux did was steer us to a more expensive wine. It was OK. Clams Casino was good. Crabs Legs the usual. Nothing special. Wife ordered 'something with a bone'. I ordered 'Rib eye'. Waiter confirmed order, but delivered two porterhouse steaks. Duh? Steaks were good. Sides were satisfactory. Service removed bread before end of meal (with great drippings, I was looking forward to dipping). Overall, service was amateur night. They were all over the place. Worst, my wife had to face a 42" video screen, 3 feet in front of her, for the entire meal. Damn great atmosphere for a wedding anniversery, eh?

    Two Time Loser: Not recommended

    I bought a $200 gift certificate for a friend's b'day hoping for a nice night out--so many problems. Poor service (inappropriate chatter), overcooked steak (replaced with fatty meat) and non-responsiveness to the ongoing problems. I told the manager who was apologetic. My friend called the followin week and did get a replacement gift certificate. Last week, we went back to give Uncle Jack's another try. The wine captain told us he didn't have our wine, but offered one that was a 'similar' price (50% higher) and when we told the waiter about our dissatisfaction with the substitute, he told us (in front of all the guests) that this time of year, it was 'hard to get the lower end wines.' It was tactless. The food was better this trip, but the service was poor. They tried to make up for it by bringing a dessert sampler...by that time, we decided we were done with Uncle Jack's.

    An experience to forget

    In a recent stay my fiancee and I decided to go to Uncle Jack's for a nice steak dinner... Experience was dreadful. Ordered a surf and turf (steak and lobster) - exactly medium and it came back well done. Not even a tinge of pink in the center. After waiting 20 minutes for the captain to arrive - I was told it was the kitchen's mistake and they would rectify it. Hardly wanting to wait for another 30 minutes I decided to forego the new meal and was informed that the meal would be taken off the bill. Hungry and not satisfied - I said fine. Long story short the bill came, and are you ready for this... I was charged $35 for the lobster tail (which by the way was small and overcooked) and the $35 for the steak was removed?! Who does that? Who charges you for half a meal? The captain dropped off the bill - looked really sheepish and ran away. Poor service through and through - save the runner. Needless to say - the experience was dreadful and I fully regret going to Uncle Jack's. The only saving grace was the atmosphere and wine.

    Steakhouse wannabe

    My steak was overcooked, unlike other reviews, I ordered a medium & got a very nearly well done. The broccoli was plain & boring. My boyfriend got what he was told was going to be a crabcake w/minimal bread & good lump crabmeat as an appetizer. I've never seen so much bread in a crabcake. Our waiter disappeared for 40 minutes at one point. The music was absolutely awful. With the atmosphere they were trying to create, it really isn't hard to get some classic piano or jazz going. But the tracks went from Frank Sinatra to soft rock to Toni Braxton's Unbreak My Heart. I've never heard such an inconsistent mix of music at a place with that much pride in their atmosphere. Not planning on going back.

    Get Over Yourself Jack

    The steak is very good, almost perfect. The presentation is classic steakhouse style -- basic with hefty portions. They cut up your meat before they plate it. I guess some people can't handle cutting their own meat. Leave my meat alone, I'll cut it up myself. It's part of eating steak. The atmosphere is haphazzard eclectic mix of old world, cowboy yeehaw saloon, old luxury hotel and magic act stage -- probably designed by Uncle Jack himself rather than a designer. Velvet and tassles everywhere. The lighting is so low you can hardly see your food. The entire service crew is quite satisfied with themselves. They waste little time indirectly letting you know you should be honored to be dining in the 'famous' Uncle Jack's (of Bayside, Queens fame). Maybe it's because ol'e Jack has them wound up too tight. The problem with the whole thing is they're trying too hard. The staff needs to relax a little. The head server was stumbling over himself trying to explain the menu options to the guests next to us. The maitre D was first condescending and then autopilot to profusely apologetic. The greeter was overboard abrasive with her upfront attitude and Heavy Metal steel spike-lined fashionista 80's belt (trying to educate us in proper attire). All this wrapped up in some attempt at presenting high society dining. As for the steak, too bad you have to go through all that just to eat your steak. It was good meat.

    Awsome Porterhouse

    Having been to many NYC steakhouses recently I must say that Uncle Jack's is in my top three. I was there w/ a party of 8 and we were seated as soon as the last members of the group arrived. The porterhouse was simply superb. I split the PH for two (rare) w/ a friend and it was cooked to perfection. We both agreed that this could possibly be the best in NYC. The hostess was friendly and the bartender had a heavy hand. The sides were also delicious. The only knock is that the hot appetizers consisted of only seafood choices. As I don't eat raw shellfish, it left me with very limited options for a starter course. Nonetheless I will go back.
