We move around a lot and are always seeking good traditional Chinese food, where ever in world we happen to be. Found Jack's several years ago, and it never disappoints. It is somewhat out of the way for tourists, unless you are headed to the...More

For years, I thought Jack's had wonderful Chinese food. Then, they seemed to go through a period ( beginning 2 yrs ago or so), where the food was pedantic and uneven. I stayed away for the past year, even though it's located close to where...More

All the traditional Chinese dishes and the best crab cake in Annapolis in our view. Most love the Peking Duck and crispy beef. Portions are huge. Prices are low and owners Mae and Jack make this a destination dining place for us.

That was easy! Has to be the best Chinese food in the area and probably beyond. The food is definitely made fresh. I could taste and distinguish each individual vegetable, No Way any of it is frozen. In 30 years I never realized I was...More

Second visit in last 3 months. Been disappointed with Chinese food options in this area. Most have gone downhill. Poor quality at expensive prices. Even PF Changs has slowly become blah since they were purchased by private equity. Jacks is excellent and provides unique touches....More

After 15 years of searching, we found the best Chinese food Anne Arundel county offers. And its been here all along! White table clothes, hot tea on arrival, expansive menu of fresh, healthy, unique fare. Not the common stuff everyone serves--and if that's what you...More

I live in Crofton, MD, and our favorite Chinese restaurant out of business a few years ago. Since then I've been trying to find a "replacement". Based on the TripAdvisor reviews, I drove all the way to Jacks Fortune... and my hopes for good or...More

Very pleasant staff, but I was a little disappointed in the food after reading all the reviews. We tried the Kung Pao Chicken and Beef Chow Mein with some spring rolls. The Chow Mein was pretty good but the other dishes just average. Kung Pao...More

Does anyone know if there are any Cantonese chefs in this kitchen? The reviews mention things that are not Cantonese and the menu seems to include as much Chinese American as it does Chinese. We're spoiled in Boston and hosting family from both coasts, looking for one good authentic Chinese meal. (No pupu platters, Gen Gao's and giant egg rolls, please.)

Hi, I think you certainly could call them and ask them. The menu for the public is Chinese American, but much better than most. The menu is often dictated by what will sell in the local market. I have been in many Asian... More
