Jack's is so overrated and so overpriced that its not even funny.

We took my father-in-law to Jacks for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago, and I left hungry. The portions were miniscule. The diminutive portions might be due to the fact that very few non-geriatrics seem to eat there; its bascially a nursing home with waiters. My meal was one of those costly "sham meals" from the 80's... a few pieces of roast turkey with several baby carrots perched against an ice-cream scoop of mashed potatoes and served with an "herb-scented" gravy.

Of course, the old people love the place, because they're used to eating spam sandwiches and Sanka.

I stopped in for drink at their new bar a few weeks back; it's a tiny, sad affair with a few regulars sitting quitely in the dark. I left immediately.

Jack's owner seems to forget that he doesn't own the only great restaurant in town. I can go two blocks down to 677 and get a REAL meal.
