Served in a dining room that has not changed much over the decades, Jack's boasts a big menu of Portuguese and Italian fare delivered in big portions at great prices. The kind of dinners that allows for leftovers for lunch the next day. Most dinners include bread, soup and salad too. Top choices are fried smelts and seafood pasta. Or... More

I had a yen for smelts and thought immediately of Jack's. I was tempted by all the other fish choices but settled for the smelts. Nicely fried, the french fries are very good, a good size salad came with the dinner. Service is great.

We hadn't been to Jack's in a long time, but tried it while visiting. The food hasn't changed it is still great, especially the marinated smelts, clams casino and the special pasta. The atmosphere isn't high end, but the food and service certainly make up for it. Jessica was our server and couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful.

What a feast! We went with three other couples and had a fantastic time. First we had outstanding antipasto followed by smelts . We also had clams casino, and shared white pasta with clams.The server Jessica really took care of us.of course, the bread was as delicious as everything else. A fun place!

Restaurant week in the East Bay, so decided to try this restaurant with my friend. A 3 course lunch including beverage-either wine or beer for $15.00 just can't be beat. We were not aware that a beverage would be included, a nice surprise. For starters, caesar salad, entree-Broccoli & Chicken Alfredo, & dessert-cookies & cream pie. There was even enough... More

We placed our order at 6:30 PM my wife ordered a soup and I ordered fried smelt appetizers. the soup took 15 minutes to arrive and the fried... More

I've gone there numerous times and never dissatisfied!!! Many menu items to choose from and very delish and some. My favorite is the Seafood Special with pasta...Savory to say the least. I recommend tenfold to order this, you won't be sorry. Enough for 3-4 people and if by yourself as I was, leftovers for two more meals! Awesome!!!

I really wanted to give Jack's a chance. I have been many times over the years, from the time I was a child. After convincing my children to have dinner here, I so wish I had listened to their protests. Very few people for a Saturday night should have been the big clue. The interior is shabbier than ever, along... More

First time to Warren RI, needed a quick dinner on our way through and came across Jacks. Sign says family restaurant so we though we could eat in less than an hour no problem. Decor was nice, but very basic and dated, the staff was very friendly and attentive, and the roomed smelled of Italian, so all looked good, pretty... More

It is worth the trip!! I live 25 miles away and on occasion travel to Jack's just to get 1/2lb of the White Seafood Special. There is no restaurant in our area that has this special treat....chopped clams,shrimp,garlic,and a clam broth that blends with the pasta. To say it is unique would be an understatement. The restaurant is laid back... More
