Tons of awesome meals to choose from. No matter what time of day this place is busy....worth the wait. I suggest you go hungry but don’t be surprised if you still need to take home a doggie bag.

Based on the reviews, we stopped for lunch. The service was excellent and the food was better than Average however not great. We had soup that was delicious and mediocre salads. Hot turkey sandwich was a good portion. Plenty of parking and clean washrooms.

Had dinner with a friend in December 2017 - the hot turkey sandwich is packed with lots of juicy white meat, and their peach pie was to die for. Just come hungry as the portions are big!

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.

We didn't book before we went to Jacks, just checked in when we got there. We had to wait around 20minutes the first time, and about 10 minutes the second time. Excellent meals, and enormous portions! The desserts are... More
