Inviting interior. Friendly staff. Need to add iced tea on menu. Get rid of plastic glasses. Biscuit and gravy is pretty much perfection. Not sure how the tenderness is achieved - don't leave without some. Pork belly needed seasoning but chili pork on waffle much better and perfect seasoning. Large portions, will split next time. Brunch potatoes flat and prepared too far in advance. Huevos looked awesome. Will definitely go back to try other items.

We have been wanting to try Jack's Kitchen and finally took the plunge. Wow!!! What a surprise. The service was friendly and unassuming, the food incredible and just an overfull wonderful experience. Met the owner's sister and she gave us the backstory on the restaurant along with letting us know that she makes the pies. I almost never eat dessert and the toasted coconut cream pie was just beyond. We also had a very unusual 4 cheese pimento and cheese for an appetizer along with fried green tomatoes. They were both excellent and also paired well with each other. Definitely a go back to restaurant. It is also BYOB which is a plus. It was a little warm in the restaurant. Besides that everything was perfect.

Service and food was very good. The only complaint we could make about our dining experience would be that the room temperature was too warm.

Fast friendly service in a quaint clean family friendly atmosphere. You can tell that the staff have a vested interest in all areas and strive to provide you with a great experience. Our brunch was excellent with bottomless mimosas being a difficult find, we were pleasantly surprised when our server offered them to us. The chicken and waffles were great and my husband enjoyed the biscuit breakfast sandwich. The breakfast potatoes were well seasoned, although we would have preferred them a little bit more crispy. Don't pass up the blueberry biscuits. They are a yummy... But not too sweet way to begin your meal. All in all a very nice experience. Please note that this establishment is on the smaller side. We were glad we made reservations.

The food is delicious and the service is really outstanding. They happily recommend and alter their dishes to want you want . Like combination of all appetizers for four etc. we also loved all the deserts as well. BYOB is just icing on the cake. You should make Jacks Kitchen a weekend habit !

This is our 3rd or 4th visit, and each time has been a pleasure. The food is high quality, the service is very good and the prices are reasonable. It's nice to BYOB as it keeps our ticket cost down too.

Adorable neighborhood restaurant. Such friendly staff. Amazing food. Laurel our waitress was fabulous!! Very helpful, friendly conversation, and she “surprised” me with my entree because I couldn’t decide. You can’t go wrong with anything on this menu. You can BYOB too.

This was our first time visiting Jack's. We had some family in from out of town and were excited to take them here. First the pro's: BYOB, friendly people, quick seating. CONS: Fair service (only one person waiting tables), mediocre coffee, cold potatoes, and too silent of an atmosphere. I really expected a busier atmosphere and better service. I will give Jack's one more try, but with all the competition out there, I hope that Jack's improves their service and quality of food.

Had an appetizer sampler of all the appetizers. The pimiento cheese was to die for, the deviled eggs were heavenly, the fried okra, the hummus - it’s all delish. I was not a fan of the fried chicken although others at our table were. Loved
the enchilada stack and the chicken risotto. Service was warm and attentive. Love that it’s byob

We had a reservation for brunch but had to wait about 10 minutes which wasn’t bad. The place is small so the wait is understandable. We got there at the right time because there’s only two chairs for waiting, and another couple and a 3-top showed up after us so they had to stand outside. But staff was very friendly and the food was good and decently priced. It’s worth trying for sure. It was a cute atmosphere.
