As soon as I walked in, the bartender welcomed me in and it's a small bar with a larger restaurant side but it's cool! It was cozy and safe feeling. The service was very fast for scratch made food; which was tasty and comforting. The soup is delish. I think even the noodles in my pasta were fresh made.

A great place to stop for carry out. We were staying at the Holiday Inn and had a pet so we couldn't go in, and had to carry out. The hamburgers were just what we needed. Black angus burgers with home made soup. Price is excellent. Even ordered off the kids menu for our mutt. He loved it too. Service... More

Went here on a Friday night. A bit of wait, but that is a good sign. If people are waiting to get in there to eat, they must be doing something right. This is a family restaurant with a bar area. The menu said they serve breakfast all day. My son opted for pancakes for dinner. I had the steak... More

We were passing by Le Roy on the highway and decided to stop for breakfast. Saw Jack's and thought, "What do we have to lose." We order breakfast and it was very good. The service was fast and efficient. The coffee was outstanding and came in nice big cups. The prices was the lowest I paid for a full breakfast... More

Great staff & friendly hometown place to get a good meal. We love the soup. All of the soups, but the creamy chicken & rice on Sunday is wonderful! The Ribeye sandwich is the best!

Great place, wide variety of food, good service, friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Amazing bread! The only complaint was having to watch tv while I was eating without the sound and it was stuck on CNN. Ruined the meal.

I had their jumbo shrimp and it was good. They had all you could eat ribs on special and after seeing them and smelling them on the table next to me, I should have had them. Reasonable prices and the place is big and does not look very old.

Jack's Cafe is sort of like a local, scaled down version of a Cracker Barrel restaurant. We tried it based on good TripAdvisor reviews and the close proximity of our hotel. The food here will not disappoint you (unless you're looking for small portions and terrible food). The food was really good and the portions more than ample. Add to... More
