My husband is a firemen and thought it would be a novel idea to dine at Jack's. We prepaid and made reservations for dinner on a specific night in conjunction with the Halloween tours at the nearby prison. Unfortunately, the night of our reservation, a (very early) Noreaster passed through the area. A state of emergency was declared throughout New Jersey rendering us unable to drive to Philadelphia. The prison readily refunded us the cost of our tour, however Jack's refused to refund or reschedule our dinner. Very poor business practice for something the customer had no control over!

A great place!! So glad we ignored the non favorable review. Totally enjoyed our 1st visit, it began by being treated to a plate of banana bread, biscuit & corn muffins. We ordered our lunch and feasted upon generous portions. Thank you too for the delicious treat of chocolate chip cookies. We look forward to our 2nd visit.

Cool Spot

cool restaurant in an old firehouse, great atmosphere outside and in. All local beers on tap (6) which is always a plus. Pulled Pork sandwich is great. Jack's is finally making rolls for their sandwiches, about time. Solid service too, highly recommend

Pay with cash!

If you use a credit card here, do not let it leave your sight! Identity theft reported to owner/manager was not received in a professional manner. Needs to keep a watchful eye on employees and be responsible for keeping patrons from being victimized!

horrible experience

We had a reservation for Jack?s Firehouse for Valentine?s Day, I have been there a few times before, and enjoy their food and atmosphere. The restaurant is usually dimly lit, has high ceiling, and a rustic feel. So it seems as though Jack?s Firehouse has acquired the offices next door that were previously owned by Eastern State. Someone in charge thought it was a bright idea to turn this spare room into extra seating. The room/previous office is a bright white, surrounded by bathroom style horrible brown tiles, and has a loud furnace in it. As you could probable have figured out, we were sat in this room on Valentine?s day, as were a number of other couples (while their main seating area was not even full). I just can?t fathom who at Jack?s Firehouse thought this was a good idea? especially on Valentine?s Day? You could see that everyone sitting there was noticeable uncomfortable. After ordering (looking back on it we should have left before this point) we told the waiter to bring the food to-go, because it was a little embarrassing to be all dressed up and sitting in what looked like a bathroom. You could even see the people walking by on the street looking in, confused to who owned this weird bathroom style room. What stinks is that I liked Jack?s Firehouse, but this move has ruined any chance of me ever going back. We ended up going next door Urban Saloon and drinking, I?ll be eating my Valentines Day to-go salad for dinner tonight! Thanks Urban for saving us!

Great atmosphere

Part of the charm of Philly - great food, great customer service, delicious desserts! We've dined both inside and out - large group or just the two of us - and never been disappointed. Food is always warm, presented well, and promptly. Outdoor fountain adds a charming spot to relax and tune out some of the city noise. Service staff are excellent - if you need ANYTHING they will do their best to provide. Be sure to make reservations to avoid disappointment if seating isn't available. And save room for dessert - they are yummy! :)

Cool looking but not worth the price.

The restaurant is really fun looking and the bar and outside sitting seem like they could be fun but the food was over-cooked and over-priced. I don't really hate it but don't recommend it either.

Great place to have a party!!!

I had my rehearsal dinner here and could not have asked for anything more! The traditional BBQ is out of this world and can't be beat! The southern style pulled pork and the crab cakes are outstanding! Everyone of my guests was still talking about the food from the rehearsal dinner at the actual wedding! Great private party spaces and a wonderful atmosphere!
