I love Uncle Jack’s. I came here for the first time almost six years ago for my first date with my *now* husband and tonight we went with our toddler and infant to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect. The service has never been short of flawless. The food amazing. Stavros (I’m almost certain that’s his name) held my daughter so we could eat without distraction for part of our meal. I just think the value and ambiance and service is outstanding.

I don't like to eat out at restaurants unless I believe I can enjoy something there that I can't prepare at home and/or I'm confident that the establishment will provide a special experience. On both these accounts, Uncle Jack's doesn't disappoint.

From the maitre d' to the server and the bus staff, everyone was friendly, welcoming, helpful, courteous, and created a wonderful environment in which to enjoy a meal. The food was fantastic, the steak was perfectly prepared, and the presentation was beautiful. This meal made for a wonderful long awaited date night with my wife after many months of eating at home. It was fun to be in a classic steakhouse and to enjoy a steak that was much better than I was capable of preparing at home.

The choice of music of jazz vocalists and big band music from the '40's through the '60's was a perfect accompaniment to the meal. The volume was just right, though I'd suggest that the restaurant adjust the EQ on the sound system to even out the balance between the bass and treble frequencies as the music can often sound very bass heavy in this acoustic environment.

I'd highly recommend Uncle Jack's, and I look forward to returning soon!

We had a wonderful time. Spiro was our waiter and he was magnificent. He helped to make our evening more special with his excellent and attentive service. The lobster tail was the biggest I’ve ever seen and delicious and well as the 120 day aged steak. Everything was delicious and the bartender was really good.

The food was amazing. We had the lamb lollipops, special surf and turf for 2, and creme brûlée. Everything was perfectly done. The atmosphere is quiet...a little too quiet. I like some background music or something to help the ambiance.

Service was impeccable . Oysters were so delicious were ordered another dozen. Martini’s were perfect. We all ordered tomahawk steaks , my husband & I shared a 44 ounce and our friends each ordered the 24 once individuals. Though tasty, they were a bit fatty and hard to cut. The chef actually sent out another one for our friend and sent us Deseret that was amazing. I am all about service. You couldn’t ask for better. Our waiter was amazing He was sweet, attentive and personably. The servers were on point. I saw the same happening at the tables around us these people aim to please. It is a bit pricy , it”s a steakhouse they normally are, what it isn’t is noisy. You can hear yourself think and enjoy your conversations. W will most definitely be back.

Date night for my husband and I. We came from Port Jefferson Station. We’ve been here before, we knew exactly what we were going for. A romantic night out. It was just that. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and over all it was a perfect evening out. I love Uncle Jacks and I’ll always choose here for an amazing dinner night out!

This place felt like stepping into a time machine. The ambiance was old school rat pack elegance. And the manager Bill couldn’t have been a better host to the experience. Our server was also quite adept. He knew when to come and when to let us stay immersed in conversation. The bone-in filet mignon was beyond description. Will most definitely be going back.

We came in to enjoy a family meal for Fathers Day and I can say that we had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We had a party of five and the price for the value of the food was better than I thought. We have eaten at other jig end steakhouses and have to say the Uncle Jacks in Bayside is my number one choice.

THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL. Trust me on this. Ordered appetisers which arrived 4 minutes after being seated. The entree arrived 5 minutes after the appetisers. Waiter was very attentive and was kind and courteous. Had to give him a $100 tip.. IT WAS THAT GOOD FOLKS. Oh try the "Fred Flintone" tomahawk.. Dry aged to perfection. It was the juiciest steak i've ever had in my life. Wife ordered the lobster tail. OH MY GOD.. Was this thing shipped from Chernobyl? I never knew lobster grew to that size.

This is now my default steak house. Damm and I was just going on a diet.. Oh well

We have been going to Uncle Jack's for years and have always enjoyed our meals. Last night we had three different cuts of steak between us, all were outstanding. The bartender, (Danny), made terrific cocktails. Service was impeccable and our water glasses were kept filled with nice cold water. The desserts were to die for! So delicious were all three of the desserts we had. Bill, the Maitre D', was wonderfully personable, and helped make our dining experience even more enjoyable. We highly recommend Uncle Jack's in Bayside and it will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants, and certainly our favorite in all of Queens and Long Island. Go enjoy!
