I admit I avoid Jack's (and most of the South Side) on Friday and Saturday nights. During the week is the time to be on the South Side and Jack's is the epitome of hanging out on the South Side. Cheap beer, cheap specials and a casual crowd of friendly people make Jack's indispensable. They are my fall-back bar and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Pros: Cheap easy

Cons: you will smell like smoke

Jack's is a classic dive bar filled with Pittsburgh's finest. Open 365 days a year, the staff is surly but kind; the drinks are cheap yet delicious. Go to Jack's in scruffy jeans, and enjoy the grit!

This place is Okay....at best. The service is GREAT. The drinks are cheap. But, the Jacks has the dumbest setup of any bar i've ever been to. The place is always crowded because it HAS to because it's so small. The ratio is usually 10 guys to every girl. Also, it seems like everybody there smokes....all at the same time. So, your clothes will smell like crap when you leave. There also happens to too many college "toughguys." However, I've had some really fun times here. So, I guess it's "hit or miss."

Jack's is the best! If you love a bar that will give you a taste of what Pittsburgh is really like definitely make an appearance. It is, however, not everyone's favorite spot. Some people are just made for the wall to wall chaos and some aren't. The best thing is definitely the bartenders. I enjoy the main bar but the real place to be is the backroom. cheap beer prices, friendly bartenders, and entertaining drunks. Now that's a 'burgh thing!

Pros: prices, bartenders, variety

As one of "true characters" that inhabits Jack's more on weekday afternoons than on Saturday nights (my picture hangs behind the bar in the front room), I'd just like to add to the official review.
The beer selection is not modest at all. While Jack's does offer old favorites like Old Mil and IC Lite, they also carry at least 3 varieties of Pete's Wicked, various Penn Brews, along with many other microbrew bottles and they have Guiness and Hoegarden on tap. And, some of the bartenders are more than willing to mix up apple martinis, top shelf margaritas, as well as apple pie shots.
As far as the characters, just perch yourself on a bar stool early on a Tuesday evening, and let the fun begin.

Jack's is by far one of the best bars in the South Side. The Weekends, this bar is pretty packed. So you dont get the full Jacks experience. Dont get me wrong, it still rocks on Fri. and Sat. But if you want to just hang out and have a few, come in on a Wed. night. Thats wing night. You will get 2 dozen wings for 2 bucks, and the beers are $1.70.
Definately ine of the South Sides finest.
