We have dined here numerous times and have always had great experiences. Their soups are delicious and we love their Roasted Chicken and Shepherd's Pie. The menu has something for everyone from small plates to full meals and everything tastes homemade. Our server the last time, Leah, did a great job and provided excellent service. This is a hidden gem... More

A lovely warm & inviting place. The food was reasonably priced & tasty. We have been away from home for awhile, It was just like home cooking.

not cheap, but the food was great. Lovely relaxed, friendly atmosphere. We were in NYC for 4 days and visited Jack's on 3 of them. Cosy bar area at the front with friendly bar staff and dining area in the rear. Can recommend the steak, the burger and the salads

Jack's use to be a staple for our monthly trips to New York City. We would eat and drink at the bar, watch sports and chat with the bartenders. We would also bring friends for a meal at the table. We will not be returning. We brought some friends for dinner in December, and the place had changed. The music... More

Hi Hutchy35, Sincere apologies for the unimpressive experience you had here in Jack's. As you can see from previous reviews that is not the standard here, however, that isn't a good enough excuse either. We were happy to remove the Mac n' Cheese from the bill but were unaware there was any upset with the Turkey Chili. Hoping we can... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
