We went for dinner Saturday night. No one I knew had recently spoke about eating here so we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The booths are set up great for a couple out for a nice meal. Our server, Jerry, was friendly, nice and overall great. We started with escargot and it reminded me exactly... More

Just had Jack's cater a big event for at least the third time and they are terrific. Service, food and pricing are excellent. Melissa guided us on food, portions, etc. and everything went perfect. Jack's has an old world feel to it but the food was modern and contemporary and everyone loved it (crab dip and hummus are made from... More

When I graduated with my Master's from MIZZOU this was the place of choice for my dinner. What a great choice it was. The service was spot on, great filet and love the local Adam Puchta Wines.

We celebrated our son's First Communion. Jack's Restaurant prepared a lovely festive table and a great lunch buffet, just as we wanted it, flaming dessert included! All the kids loved it!

We come to Jack's for our large family Christmas dinners and company events; but we also come here with the kids to order burgers off their bar menu in the afternoon! Can't go wrong at Jack's Gourmet!

Had a pepper steak (filet mignon) last night and it was as I remembered from the Jack's of old... Still one of the best cuts of meat I've ever had; properly prepared, excellent presentation, and fresh, al dente veggies that rounded out the plate beautifully. I will be craving this for awhile. I cannot wait for my next Trip to... More

I loved how you can go here and not worry about your conversation being drowned out my loud music, TV's blasting sports games and things like that. Most of the waiters have worked here for years and no the menu very well and the current owners, Ken and Melissa Applegate are always in house and have been in charge for... More

My associates and I had a wonderful holiday dining experience at Jacks. The surf and turf was excellent. We tried a variety of the appetizers and they were all good as well. Drinks were prepared nicely. The wait staff was very professional and courteous. It had been awhile since the last time we had been there but we won't wait... More

My wife and I make it a point to visit Jack's for special occasions. We always enjoy the atmosphere, there is usually someone playing the piano there and love the old world feel to the place. The food is excellent, and I recommend the beef for two dish they offer. They carve it table side for you and serve it... More

My wife and I lived in Columbia Mo. back in 1981 - 83 time-frame. I was under contract with the Callaway Nuclear Plant which was still under construction. Our two daughters were very young, but the oldest still remembers dining there. I used to put on my best suit and tie, and of course, the ladies of the family looked... More
