The Spicy Shrimp and Grits are some of the best you will find anywhere with deliciously balanced flavor, they make a wonderful appetizer. The Pan Seared Crab Cake with Caribbean Mango Salsa is equally as enticing. But save some room because the main courses are outstanding.

Steak and Seafood is Jack’s forte and a signature is the Filet Mignon as is the Grilled Salmon and the Broiled Swordfish Steak. All the entrees are served with fresh vegetables and a choice of potato such as Jack’s Creamy Steakhouse au Gratin Potatoes or Mashed Rustic Potatoes topped with Bleu Cheese. Save room for dessert or at least share one. They are all deliciously presented and appealing.

The service is impeccable and everything about Jack’s deserves a standing ovation. Whether you find yourself in Orlando for business or pleasure, a stop at Jack’s is the only way to discover and experience the truest dining gem of Orlando.

Jack’s Place is conveniently located in the Rosen Plaza Hotel on International Drive just minutes from most of Orlando’s famous attractions and adjacent to the Orlando Convention Center.
