Went there this morning for brunch. It was so great I had write a review the same day!

Three of us were trying to find a breakfast place on Clark in Lakeview. We couldn't find anything and made it to Jacks on Halsted.

They weren't quite open yet but welcomed us and we sat on the patio. We were the only ones there but the servers (one in training) were really friendly.

The patio is cute with tall bamboo looking stalks enclosing it. The food was delicious- I had eggs with bacon. Delicious and the fruit they put pineapple, honeydew, cantaloupe and orange on the side. Where else can you get that much fruit on your plate??

$3 mimosas is a great deal and the music was great with Diana Ross and some other greats. It was the perfect music for the mood.

The inside area was also cute with white tablecloths. Will be coming back for a dinner or Sunday brunch when they have a live DJ.

Jack's cuisine is an American bistro and is a great place to go to get dinner or brunch. We have been to Jack's for both and have always had a wonderful meal. For dinner, I would suggest trying the butternut squash ravioli as an appetizer. It is quite yummy! For brunch you can try one of Jack's omelets, or the crab cakes eggs benedict, my husband's personal favorite. The omelets are quite big, so come hungry! They also offer theater specials for those going to see Blue Man Group, which is down the street. I would definitely recommend going to Jack's!

We ate at Jacks before a Blueman Group performance and were so pleased with our experience. The service was quick, friendly and attentive. We ordered the steak and fries (fries were to die for!), salmon and the "pork tasting." All were prepared and presented wonderfully and in perfect portions. The pork and salmon were served with chutneys that were just out of this world! For desert we had the bananas foster and the ice cream pie. My son wouldn't give up any of the bananas foster so I presume it was good and the ice cream pie was just amazing. I would certainly return to Jacks on our next visit to Chicago.

My husband and I love this place, it is our favorite place to come for a special occasion or a fun date night. The food is wonderful, I love the filet and he always gets the rib eye. Everything is always cooked to perfection and the wait staff is very friendly. We usually make reservations on Friday or Saturday night just to ensure we do not have to wait for a long time. If you do have to wait though they have a nice cozy bar area and the bartenders are always very friendly and make a mean cocktail. They have a great variety of Martinis and wine choices.

My girlfriend and I found myself looking for a nice place to go before seeing the blue man group. We were very impressed with the service food and atmosphere Jack's gave. It is tough to go out due to my girlfriends food allergies but they were so accommodating and caring it was amazing. We liked it s much we came back for a glass of wine and amazing ice cream after the show. I would recommend anyone to just try it. We were from out of town and were having a hard time finding a friendly face in the cold city of Chicago but we felt at home that night. This place allowed us to finally relax from a stressful trip. Thank you again all who served us were amazing. The bar tender even called a friend to help us find our way to our friends house afterward. Can't say enough. Food, service, and atmosphere A++++++++ or **********. Thanks for saving our trip and giving us a warm feeling in such a cold town.

When I go to a fine-dining restaurant, I expect my dishes to reflect the chef?s attention to detail. Jack?s delivers. Appetizers, Salads, entrees, and desserts are all meticulously put together and delicious. Dishes are creative and contain the subtle little touches I expect in this price range. My experiences with the service have ranged from acceptable to fantastic. Great ambiance ? perfect for a romantic dinner.

I wanted to surprise my husband with dinner and tickets to Blue Man Group for our anniversary. I read a review about this restaurant and took a chance. We had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere was intimate. The restaurant has been newly decorated which added to the total enjoyable time. We live on the opposite side of town but will definately take the trip again. Highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprise with Jacks! We went there before a party in boystown and had always heard it was great. We ordered the lobster risttoa (as an appetizer) 8 different martinis which were all great, and some fish. Everything was great. We'll definitely be back!

Pros: Martinis, Staff, Food

Cons: NADA ONE!

Jack's has not disappointed me at dinner or brunch for the quality of food. The brunch crowd fills about 60% of the dining room, but waiters and waterboys only make two to three appearances on the floor per hour.

I have enjoyed Jacks many times, and it has become one of our favorite restaurants. The classy patrons, food and atmosphere make Jacks a classy place for either dinner or just a quick drink for friends before heading out for some partying.

I have not dined here yet, but I have stopped in for drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Because it's primarily a restaurant, the noise level is conversation friendly; and the bar provides a great perch for people-watching. The bartenders and servers are amiable making everyone feel welcome.

The bartender here is someone to remember as a jewel, especially in a town where bad service seems to be something "servers" like to brag about. He served me quickly, without rushing me, the wines he recommended were unforgettable, and the beef filet was tender and juicy and just the right size. I thought the desserts were just WAY too much, although they were indeed tasty. It's what Angelina or Las Mananitas used to be. and will be the first (and maybe only) place I stop for dinner my next time back in Chicago!

Pros: Beef, Wine, Reasonably Priced, Windows/People-Watchi

Cons: Can be crowded, Noisy

Jack's serves as the nice resturant to go in the Lakeview / Boystown/ Wrigleyville neighborhood. The menu is interesting, service is fine, and the crowd tends to be eclectic. I would recommend the resturant if you want to spend an evening socializing in the neighborhood and want more than casual dining.

This John (Jack) Daniel Jones restaurant underwent a renovation and changed its concept to reflect the current economic times. Now, the dinner menu caps at about $20 and includes everything from a duo of tuna (sesame-seared, miso-soy…
