Overall a decent place to grab some classic diner food. However the service here wasn't that great. We had to ask for refills multiple times. And once we got our food our waitress never came back. The food though. Wow...this place was great! The hangover cure was fantastic. Everything was perfectly cooked. The biscuits and gravy were great as well.... More

Best breakfast while in Charleston! Diner food, not typical fare for this area, but definitely good. Best corn beef hash I've had.

Came upon Jacks by chance, many students were having meals which to me means it's good food and priced well. We sat at bar and interacted with the cook and staff. Felt very welcome and appreciated. The food was sooooo good. I had a great grilled cheese with bacon which sounds simple but it tasted great. They have choice of... More

We 'stumbled' upon this great diner one morning during our visit with family. The atmosphere was great, the wait staff was informative and very attentive. We had a mix from the pancakes to the potatoes and hash. Nice and quiet and very relaxed. Would definitely go again.

This place was around the corner from our airBNB so we walked over. What a treat! Best omelets we've had in a long time. Took a while to eat because they were packed but everyone was cheerful and unstressed. Watching Jack (I presume that's who he was) was an added treat.

We had breakfast here one morning. Had passed by it a few times in our other travels and decided to stop in. I had an omelette and my wife had the waffles and both of us were pleasantly stuffed when were finished. The eggs were delicious without any grease and the vegetables in my omelette were cooked just right. The... More

This is a great place to have breakfast in downtown Charleston - pretty much a traditional, Southern diner breakfast. No frills, but smiling faces and friendly service.
