The food is aways good. Huge portions and amazing service. Homemade dressings are delicious. Weekday specials will always leave leftovers. Lineups get quite long but it’s worth the wait

Jack's is a great family friendly restaurant with good food, quality, selection and friendly staff. we had lunch at Jack's prior to the theatre. It was perfect. Afterwards we had dessert and drinks. Loved the cheesecake.

Had a solo meal here. The food quanitity was plentiful and certainly you wouldn't go hungry here. The quality is like most family restuarants. It'll do but it's clearly not made to order. It'll do but I try elsewhere before coming back.

Excellent food. Two of us went there for breakfast. I order a crepe filled with berries and bananas, mouth watering. My husband ordered bacon, eggs, toast with hash browns and beans. He didn't want the hash browns and the cook gave him tomato slices instead....More

Thanks for your question. Yes we do. We have 5 whites, 5 reds, and a rose all available by bottle or glass. It's a fairly decent selection for a family restaurant.
