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 eating Mung Mushrooms and now I know what it is and what they look like.... 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. Pineapple chicken is served in a pineapple. The volcano drink is served in a special... 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 want you'll be disappointed! Each dish beautifully presented by outstanding waitstaff. Get there early, or... 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 even decent or even edible food were dashed. I sincerely hope that this was just... More

I was visiting a friend who lives in Annapolis during our class reunion. We went out one night with his girlfriend. The service was fantastic. Never had to wait for anything. Someone was always watching our table to make sure we never had an empty glass or were in need of anything. I ordered the rib appetizer. Four large and... 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 not at all spicy. Looks like a family owned restaurant in a strip mall. Good... More

I've worked in Annapolis for almost 8 years. For all of that time, I have been told by a coworker that Jack's Fortune has some of the best Chinese food as well as one of the best crab cakes in Annapolis. So, why did it take me all this time to get there? I just don't know. Walking into Jack's... More

Excellent food and service! Great atmosphere! The restaurant was moderately busy. We were seated quickly and our drink order was taken within three minutes. Dumplings were so good. I got the honey chicken; portion size was large enough to share. My husband got the house lo mein. He loved it. We will be back.
