Great Food – nothing better than a good old fashion steak house, nothing better. The entire menu is what I grew up enjoying,from lobster, steaks, shrimp cocktail, crab meat, potato's, and the best shoestring fried onions anywhere. Jack is usually at the restaurant always with a smile and willing to get you anything special that you might want. Mike the bartender is by far the nicest guy you will ever meet and will make a great drink too.
great food and service! – everything was so fresh and prepared great. we started with canadian bacon, fried calamari, shrimp cocktail and caesar salad. all was so good. for entrees, the porterhouse was incredibly tender and cooked perfectly, the chilean sea bass was out of this world, and even the pasta with seafood was one of the best dishes i have ever tasted! great service (our waiters were very nice and attentive throughout), and the restaurant is beautiful. my guests were very impressed. we all can't wait to visit again.
Above Average, More Convenient Than Peter Luger – Went there to celebrate finishing the marathon. Let me start by saying that I think Peter Luger is overrated and has been sliding by on it's reputation for years. There are too many great steakhouses in Manhattan and B&J's is a perfectly good alternative to PL. The service and decor is much nicer, they actually treat you with a little bit of courtesy, they accept credit cards and they're much more convenient to get to. They have nice options for non-steak eaters, a nice wine list and are not overly pricey (not cheap but not excessively priced) The only problem with B&J's is the overwhelming competition of other steakhouses in Manhattan- Bobby Van's, BLT Prime, Del Frisco's etc. I would be perfectly happy to go back to B&J's and would choose them over PL any day.
Peter Luger tribute steakhouse spinoff. – Ben and Jack’s is one of a number of nearly indistinguishable but generally satisfactory steakhouses modeled after the famous Peter Luger, in this case by two former waiters. It’s a spinoff of the first Ben and Jack’s, which is located in midtown, and the food, service and ambience at the two restaurants are exactly the same. Expect the same sliced porterhouse (served on a tilted sizzling platter), gruff waiters, tomato and onion salad and all the other earmarks of the ersatz Luger experience. But the rooms (400 seats on two floors) are nicer, with more polished surfaces and comfortable chairs, and all the niceties of restaurant service, like credit cards, are present as well.
