Best steak I've ever had.!!! This place is a bar. Do not bring your children here. Usually a wait. Very small inside. I don't recall seeing any table larger than a 4 top. Located on a one way street.

Everyone one in Redding says "Go to Jacks if you like a great steak". So we did and it was terrible. Steak was dry, baked potato over-baked. Can't brag about anything here.

My husband loves the Top Sirloin and the Filet Mignon. I love the Brochettes of Beef. The salad is delicious and is served family style. We love it.

Jack's is widely acclaimed as the best steak house in the Redding area. This is the classic place that most people claim that they could care less about the ambeaunce they just care about the product on the plate. It is pretty much a "dump" on the inside,clean with 15-20 tables,but I do think they have the best steaks in... More

So, we've lived here for several years now and it took us awhile to make our way in to this landmark establishment. It has quite a reputation as "the best", so we had to finally try it. Really?! was all I could think when the food was served. It wasn't bad, but it certainly fell nowhere even close to "the... More

Every time I Return to Redding have have one meal in Jacks. Best steaks on the planet. If like Morton's and Ruth Kris this is a must try and a lot less expensive. Lots of history in this place and steaks are still the same for the 77 years.

This was my second visit. I had come once before for a 4pm dinner so I didn't have a long wait. The food was fine nothing special. This place is always crowded and I didn't like the feel of people stepping over me as I ate. I came a second time only because my wife had never been. Is it... More

Cozy family restaurant with a bar 60's style, specialized in meat --a few fish choices available. Meat perfectly done, fresh salad and fries or baked potato. Staff very friendly and professional. The restaurant consists of just a few tables surrounding the bar, with good wine selection. And at a very reasonable price.

Thank js0rel
