The visit was in a friendly atmosphere. It showed up the waiter was from Croatia back home in Europe. We had onion soup which was ok but not more. Then a house salat which was also ok. Best point was the service

The steak and service was good.The prices are the same as any New York Steak House so there is nothing to complain about on this. I found the restaurant to be in the need up an update and a refresher.The waiters were friendly and courteous.I would go back again.

We visited this restaurant after a friend suggested it to us. Our waiter was very polite and our New York steaks were cooked exactly as we wanted them and were very tasty. We also tried desserts which were also very tasty. The place is a bit dark but many like it that way. Prices are a bit high but this... More

We went here for my husbands 50th birthday. We were a party of 10 and they gave us a room on the second floor of the resturant. It was perfect for our loud crew. The food was excellent, your traditional steak house menu. The service was fantastic. After we ate,we hung out at the bar for a few hours. The... More

We went to Ben & Jack's in December 2016 for our last meal in our NY vaction. We had steak and chicken, both without any taste, the steak was not cooked medium rare and the chicken was not like the waiter described. We felt unwelcome as a young traveling couple celebrating our engagement, the waiters were rude and did not... More

I think this restaurant offer better dishes in the restaurant week 2016. Steak with potato and broccoli all together. Service is good for steak house. I like wine glass written B&J.
