Visiting Halifax we stopped in about 11:45 for lunch...it was full by 12:00 noon on a Tuesday. Nicely kept place with a varied menu, quickly chose nachoes, caesar salad and Buffalo chicken stripes for the two of us and all were above average. With cold beers and tip still reasonable at $55. Servers appeared to keep everyone including us happy.... More

The food isn't bad for the price and the atmosphere is very casual. They have paper and crayons on the tables so it's good for the kiddos.

Only visited once before to mediocre food, but that was a couple of years ago. Have started to take a shine to wings after a super experience last year at a pub in Newfoundland. Tried more in Moncton and Halifax with disastrous results. However, after checking with the server as to whether they were pre-frozen or cooked (caught the poor... More

We have been here several times. The menu is fine - nothing really special and it seems that prices continue to creep up a couple of dollars each time we go. The music is mind-numbingly loud. When we were here (5:30 pm on a Wednesday night) most of the guests were middle aged or young families. I understand that on... More

The food was delicious. The restaurant is always busy and it feels like the staff is always in a rush. Very friendly but could be a bit more personable. Maybe next time will try it for lunch.

We ordered the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Smiling Buddha Salad and Donut Balls with various sauces for dessert. Lettuce wraps had a bad odour of old vegetables and were really bad, the Buddha was alright but mostly iceberg lettuce and the desert was not cooked enough resulting in a doughy ball you could not get in the sauces without it falling...

It is good, family friendly and the food is always good... I get lots of variety because I travel for a living... so I find this "standard" like East Side Marios or 5 or 6 other restaurants.

The service was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice and welcoming. However the food was terrible. We ordered burgers and soup and both our meals were bland and tasted like frozen food. Maybe we didn't get their specialty but I was disappointed in the lack of flavors. If we go back again it would only be for drinks.

Hi Caroline, Thank you for sharing your feedback. At Jack's we take our food very seriously and use fresh ingredients to make the majority of our meals in-house. Our burgers are hand made from fresh, never frozen Ontario Angus beef, and our famous Beer and Cheddar soup is also made in-house. I'm very sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with... More

Service good, food OK but a bit noisy for two sixty somethings. But did the job in terms of quick meal after an drive from PEI. Good value for money.

Ate here when it first opened, that was some time ago. This review may be unfair, as practices may have changed since my being there. There were only two of us, we sat for quite sometime before anyone came to us to take our order, we ordered burgers and fries......seemed to take forever to get our meal. The burger was... More
