Lived in town for what seems like forever and never got around to going here til the other day. Food was delicious. I won't be going back too soon however because I can be a picky eater and there was not much would eat overall on the menu, but thats just me.

Food was fantastic. It was busy, but that's typical for a Saturday night. Only had to wait about 10-15 mins for a table.

Rosalie Pelletier

Good for a home cooked style meal. Nothing fancy.

Amanda C.

Amazing food. Swordfish & Salmon/Scallop/Shrimp dinners were delicious, dipping sauces complimented the seafood as well! Will be back for sure. Waitress was also very nice! Busy for a Saturday night, but only had to wait a few mins for a table next to the bar!

Gina Williams

Great food and friendly staff! Will definitely be coming back :)

Maureen Cusanelli

Great food & great service!

George Lucas

The food was pretty good. I think the best way to sum up the experience was that for only $23 you can get a full meal and salad that many people would not be able to finish. The food itself is not crazy different or special, most is just meat or burgers, but that doesn't mean it's not cooked well. The chefs understand that a good piece of beef doesn't have to be anything more than well cooked and lightly seasoned.

Meredith Menton

Great place for lunch or dinner. Food is always delicious. Salads, meat, soups, appetizers and more. And you can see the fire cooking from your seat. Just a great place to enjoy a meal with family and friends. Reservations always a great idea to ensure you don't have to wait too long. 547678

Great food and drinks. Friendly staff, mostly, great happy hour specials too!

Mark Sexton

Great food. Relaxed comfortable atmosphere. Great, friendly service.

Doris Maldonado

Great location although I didn't realize there's a parking area to the side. Good lunch options, nice setting courteous staff and our waiter sang incredibly for someone's birthday! Grilled chicken pecan salad was great and ginger dressing as well!

Frances Cerasuolo

Great service. Really nice and lovely wait staff. Very attentive. We 4 all had different dishes meat and beef. Excellent. Cost reasonable!! We will be back.

Jeff J. Cunningham

Great amazing restaurant, with great big portions, and amazing mouth watering food. I wish I could eat here every night. So much to pick. The boneless wings are actually some the best I ever had. Love the Bone-In Pork Chop with maple glaze. I could go on forever...if anyone knows me...but will say one of the best wood fire grills, and food never tastes smokey like some wood fire places. Amazing...what you waiting for? Call to book a reservation now!

Eric Letourneau-Rivera

Great place in the heart of Southington with good food. Also close to walk to a lot of other eateries, ice cream and breweries

Bill Kolash

Excellent experience, with great good and great service. Traveling to Vermont from Pennsylvania and stopped for the night in Southington. We definitely made the right choice in a place to eat!

Stefan Paneczko

Good food.Service and friendly atmosphere.

Noel Nash

So-so food in a nice atmosphere.

Leslie Hunter

The quality of service and food was very disappointing.

Sharon Paradis

Great happy hour

Aimé Fraser

A local favorite, with great burgers and steaks cooked over a flame. The menu is wide ranging, with good appetizers, salads, and sandwiches. Friendly service, too. A great casual place for lunch or dinner.

Adam Ferrari

This place is the best restaurant in Southington without question. My wife and I come here all the time and the service is top notch. They’ve messed up our order a couple of times but always make it right. Something as simple as a delay in a drink order netted us a free appetizer. Whether you are looking for a bar type of atmosphere or a casual dining setting, they have it all. If you’re in the dining room, you have a cool view of the kitchen while they’re making the food too. If you’re in town and want a solid night out, come here.

Joel Piazza

Our server was great, atmosphere was good. 1 star because the food was awful. Burger was dry and flavorless, so was the bread and the toppings on it. Filet my wife had was below avg. The price wasn’t bad, it’s just the food isn’t worth paying for. Maybe my expectations for the food were too high based on the atmosphere and service but they just did not match up. I hate complaining about food to a server but it should be better if they want to stick around. Surprised anyone complimented the food on here. There’s no way it stacks up against similar restaurants.

Vivian Tentoni

Food and service was great

Milton Sauer

Excellent! Couldn't be happier with the food and the staff!!!

julius knickerbocker

Awesome food, drink and service, we will be back


The food was out of this world !!! The host were polite ,friendly, will give it a10

Kathy Lang

Had Matt as our server! He was awesome!! Ordered the cranberry chicken, it was amazingly delicious! Been coming here for a few years now and always have enjoyed it!

Dan H

Will honestly say never knew this place existed until I was craving Gumbo soup and thats what I searched in Maps, was very pleased with the restaurant, they have a dinner special M-W-Th , tons of items to choose from; Gumbo soup, was delicious generous with chicken/pork! Seafood Paella- $16 seriously dude? Good heaping of Mussels, Salmon, Chicken, Pork- an enormous plate/ come hungry leave satisfied! The server Jeff was an awesome dude, very attentive to the detail with all the guests, checked in frequently and was personable. The restaurant looks amazing, and is clean inside! Would absolutely return and recommend to friends!

Sharon Faughnan

Great service and food

Lace Galore

Awesome place! I go with family every year for dinner and it is always a fun experience! For anyone looking for fine dining, this is a good place to go!

Richard Mosel

Very good. Nice atmosphere.

Sharon Bellmore

Our first time here. Was quaint inside. Had a great waitress.

Mary Byrne

I’m new toSouthington, went to dinner there on the recommendation of a friend from Cheshire, 6 visits later we can The last was just as good as the first

Nate Eaton

Convenient location with beautiful indoor and outdoor seating on the Southington green. Had Margaret as a waitress the times I've been here and could not be more satisfied with the level of service I've recieved, she is always pleasant and attentive despite the rush- an extremely hard worker. There is always great food, the spinach dip is to die for and the margaritas can't be beat! Comfortable environment fit for any occasion. This is slowly but surely becoming my favorite place to dine out!

Lisa R

Always good food and great atmosphere. Has been my favorite for years, you can't go wrong food is consistently delicious.

Brian Cote

Food is simply delicious...fried eggplant...wooooohoooo

Dante j Aiudi,jr

The service, the food and the atmosphere was fantastic

Gerard McClure

Food and service was excellent.

Sarah Josenhans

Really delicious

Brenda Lisitano

Pecan pie and ice cream was amazing. Fish with crab crust was delicious although the crab was less crust and more a dollop (even ordered another to go for my sister). Paella was better as leftovers than it was fresh and I would recommend only a 3/4 portion with the fresh green beans that were on the other dishes which were perfectly cooked. Nice portions and very good service.

Geda Muraskauskaite

Great as always! Get a filet with blackened scallop skewer! Oh, and espresso martinis are amazing!

Denise Butler

Food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service was amazing!!

Scott Bray

The swordfish was so bad I could not eat it,they gave me a steak and it taste d like the fish,The freezer must be broken or dirty.Been eating here for years and it is slowly being run to the ground. I won't go back,service is excellent, the kitchen is the problem

Pam Puto

The food is so good!

Leslie Black

I am from out of town. I have been working in Connecticut for about a month and a half. The hotel gave me some restaurants to visit that we’re good and I chose Amthony Jacks because it was close. I found the food to be well prepared and delicious. I have always been getting the salmon that is grilled. And it is perfection every time. I can substitute a starch for vegetable and that is very helpful to me. The people that help me at curbside are always friendly and courteous. It is always still hot by the time I get to the hotel.

Wayne Johnson

Great meal and great service. Nice to sit outside and have a great meal with family or friends.

Georgetta Sharpe

Food is fantastic, service beyond professional, and the portions you get for the price is outstanding. I do recommend this place for dinner.

Gene Faltus

Had fire grilled scallops. Fast service, tasty.slightly expensive.

Lynne Rosano

The best seafood and steaks with fruit wood fire smoky flavor, big salads and banana cream pie to die for!

Cathy Eufemia

Food was terrible. Doesn't even deserve a star. The Eggplant appetizer was smothered with so much stuff you couldn't taste the eggplant. I ordered the Short Ribs with Polenta and got what looked and tasted like pot roast. Yuk! The Spinach was very salty. The Polenta was delicious. I will never step foot in that place again. One last observation; How can you call yourself a "Steak House" when you don't even offer Rib Eye Steaks? Major disappointment. If you hadn't screwed up the Short Ribs in the first place, then you wouldn't have needed to replace them with something I can make at home. Please don't try to paint yourself in a better light by saying "Oh look we gave her scallops" (for which we PAID for). You should have given them to me for FREE! Maybe you could have avoided a bad review.

Carol Bartuacca

Great food great service

Megan Thielman

Awesome food!!! The filet is the best...

Rita Paradis

Always consistent!

Kim Morett

Went here for the first time for a birthday. Food was decent. However as i had two more bites of my food i had uncovered a hair under my last two pieces. I let the waiter know. The manager came over and offered a free dessert (worth $8) to compensate for my $32 dollar steak dinner. Extremely disappointed in how this was handled. I understand that i ate nearly my whole dinner, but come on, hair on my plate is only worth $8 to you? That means i will never return, for how it was handled not that there was a hair on my plate.

Brandy Learmouth

Great food

Andy Geremia

Very attentive staff and fantastic food.

Joe Chef

Very good food and great service, a nice change from chain restaurants.

James D'Alonzo

Awesome food In a cool little town.

Eddie Vendetti

Love this place, the food is phenomenal.

Justin Perkins

Great atmosphere, nice location, awesome service, and consistently wonderful food. The price is reasonable and we go here the most out of any local restaurant.

Sandy Hrab

It was my birthday yesterday, and friends took me there for dinner. Nice dark wood atmosphere. Great drinks, especially their sangria. Appetizer was awesome, and dinner portions were huge. Very pleasant server, and for the first time in my life i got a birthday sundae with a candle and a song!!

Glenn Shorette

Same menu for last 10 years. Jumbo shrimp were far from jumbo. Glasses were not clean. Need to step it up to survive.

Dean White

Excellent as always !!

Stacia Petersen

Definitely need to be careful on times of going. This place can be very full. Love their spinach dip! My go to some nights for even just my meal! So bad of me. I love their Gumbo and steaks. Salads were always crisp but parking can be a pain.

Bruce Lerner

The food was very good. The daily special (cajun tuna tacos) was tasty, filling and hot. A steak and shrimp skewer with vegetables was also hot and tasty. Our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Great dinner out.

John Lahda

Excellent service and food. Make reservations though.

Les Marsh

Great servixe, delicious food. Will definitely go back.

Zoey Star

This place has great steaks!! Been here twice and both time the food was awesome!

Scott Raymond

Great food and service.

judy Orofino

Have never had a bad meal here... Call for reservations later in the week…

Kjell Sands

Good but not fantastic

Kendra W

Omg! Great environment, great staff, cooks, the food, ahhhhhh, so delicious! So very delicious. Price wise is like $$ but totally worth it. I had great 1st experience

Phillip Mangiaracina

Surprisingly hit or miss. When the food is good (more often than not) it's very good. Once in a while I've had less than amazing experiences there

Amanda Canamella

WORST.... I mean absolute WORST customer service I have ever had...this includes wait staff, bartenders, what the call a "manager", and the list goes on. I've gotten better customer service at Burger King. That's sad...especially because i really enjoyed going there because they had good food. this world today the quality of customer service trumps the quality of food any day of the week.

Justin Harrer

Food was great! I got the salmon, shrimp and scallops. Didn't have a reservation, and when I got there it was super busy with about a 30-40 min wait. Luckily a spot at the bar opened up after about 5 min. and I ate there. All in all it was a very good experience, would go again if I wasn't just visiting from Wisconsin.

Cathy Cormier

Excellent food, service and atmosphere

Shane egress

Great food, atmosphere, and pricing

Rik Gardon

Really great food on a great atmosphere, Melissa was our very nice server.

Mary Kasparian

Excellent experience. Wait staff is very attentive and keeps a good cadence. Food is prepared exactly how ordered and very tasty. Ambiance is wonderful. Great wine list and liquor offerings.

Jennifer St.Germain

Went there for the first time this weekend and loved it. The prices are on the higher end but you get what you pay for. I got the 14 oz Prime Rib and it had to be bigger than 14 oz!! The waitress warned me that they do their Prime Rib a little different by cooking it to your desired temp and then throw it on the grill to sear. She said some people are upset by this but; 1) I probably wouldn’t have noticed it was “different” and 2) it was awesome. It came with smashed red potatoes and fresh green beans and carrots that were so flavorful. My husband got the NY Strip and devoured it!! He also got one of the specialty drinks....Caribbean something. It was tasty. Due to the price, we’ll make this a special occasion restaurant but we will definitely be back.

Jennifer Nuzzo

Good food and drinks.

Roger Hagberg

Food excellent service excellent

Mathew Daigle

alex velazquez

Great food.friendly staff. Good prices. Never been there before till decided to try it out for my bday weekend. It was a cozy place and their food was good. Will definitely be going back

Chet Knell Jr.

Never a bad meal at Anthony Jacks! The staff is great, drinks are great, and the food is great! What more can you ask for?!

Hannibal Chow

Slow wait and service for mediocre food. Ordered a steak with potatoes and veggies. Steak had very little flavor as well as potatoes. Green beans were okay. Asked for a refill on my drink and never got it. A couple who was seated next to us and got there after us got their food first. Would have ordered desert but didn't wanna be waiting for another 30 minutes. Bread and spinach dip were the only things that were worth 2 stars. Also my lemonade was watered down and it was hard to find parking. I could have got a better steak at Texas Roadhouse or some other chain. Server was somewhat knowledgable but super slow as if he was new or something. Not my buisness. Would I come back? If theres a zombie apocalypse and only this place was open for food and shelter then yes but if not, I'll go somewhere else with better quality overall..

Jennifer Sherman

My steak was over cooked, and a bit crowded between tables. Not my place for a night alone away from kids, but may be others.

Eileen Perlot

Best restaurant in Southington. Prices are fair, service good, and never been disappointed. Much better than Outback.

Michael Cohen

This bar-grill was hopping on a Wednesday night. My wife and I joined another couple for dinner and we're impressed with the interesting and diverse menu. My wife had a mushroom and crusted chicken which somewhat disappointingly turned out to be much more like a chicken marsala. I had the Paella which was plentiful in quantity but lacking in overall taste. I would grade this dish a mere "C". Our friends had the paella dish and a shrimp Alfredo that they thought we're also just okay. On a bright note the service was both friendly and quite professional. The dinner courses were also well-timed. Might be a better place for drinks and munchies as opposed to full dinner.

steve jalbert

Stopped in for lunch. Had turkey gumbo to start huge chunks of turkey in it very delish. Then grilled chicken sandwich. Everything was fresh not frozen nice little side salad. Meatball grinder was also very good.

Lawrence Belisle

Food is fair, but will never go back, I was charged 44 cents for each glass of tap water. very dumb management decision

Flash & Capone

Amazing food. Excellent service. Never a bad meal here!

Charlie Cocuzza

Great lunch menu with plenty of low priced specials. I always walk out satisfied.


We've been going here for a few years now since learning about it. We drive about a half an hour every time just to get here too. It's our go-to steak restaurant. The wait staff, cleanliness, and food is consistently great, way above average for the area. The price is very reasonable. The woodfired grill cooks everything with a hint of flavor, while allowing the natural flavors of the meat to be what you taste. There were a few times over the years a piece of meat has come out slightly incorrect or an incident of that nature. It was always taken care of without hassle or question, and usually reflected that way when the bill came too. The owner is even in there quite often taking care of things around the restaurant as its always busy. I'd recommend making a reservation ahead of time on any day of the week.

Moira McSweeney

Great food and friendly staff. Waitress and hostess were wonderful.

Cliff P

The gumbo is a meal. Service was good. Kitchen was slow at 7:45 pm. for a burger club and a Philly

Billy Gagne

The best steak and potatoes I have ever had ... Highly recommended if you don't go there try it you will not be Disappointed,,, ask for a pina Colada their Excellent

MaryAnne Volpe

Excellent Food and service

Alban Tardif

The service and food was great!!!

Jon McMahon

Always primetime! Cranberry chicken all day!!

Ben Kunz

Incredible restaurant, moderately priced. Juicy steaks. The cranberry chicken is a local favorite. Nice atmosphere. I planned a surprise party for my wife recently and the staff helped pull it off cleverly. Great time.

Afroditi C

After searching on Google since we are from out of town, we found this place. The reviews were right. The place has a nice atmosphere. The food and service was good. The food was came out nice and hot and was plenty. We loved the mussels with chorizo!

Rogue Ranger

3 1/2. GREAT First Time Experience.. Food & Service Were Outstanding! The Only Issues I Had Were (A) On-line Menu varied From Physical Copy; Servers were Good about that, and (B) Despite The Numerous Empty Tables {Reserved} We managed to get the Last Table Available, as Tables were filled upon leaving. Compliments To The Chef; as The Prime Rib was The Best I ever had... Definitely Recommend and Return. Just Promote As Black Tie and Require Reservations.

Rhonda Cassin

Awesome! Good job

Ted Falasco

Anthony Jack's is a nice, mid-range restaurant. Their portions are monstrous, and the food is decent, so bring your appetite. They were able to accommodate a large party of a dozen people on short notice. Service was fast and friendly.

Andrew Gray

One of the best spots in Southington, always a treat to go

Jason Deugenio

Solid spot for a nice dinner. I had a nice strip and my wife liked her scallop dish. It's been a staple in an area where restaurants come and go. That tells you they are consistently good.

Chris Champagne

The best specials menu in town. Never have an issue and the food is always great.

William Hammond

This place is awesome. What a great find on the way up North!

Jason Spilker

The service and atmosphere was outstanding.

Kimberly Wolfe

Great location, nice atmosphere, amazing food, great service. So nice to have a great restaurant in town. Food is fresh and unique. I take friends here occasionally and they are always impressed. Their Cranberry Chicken is my favorite! Make reservations if going for dinner. They are often packed, especially on the weekends and holidays.

William Mis

Great food and great service.

Brandon MacNab

Excellent food! I occasionally make a large order for myself and coworkers and everyone says the same thing, that this is the best restaurant to order from in the area. I even made a mistake on my order and they were very accommodating. 5 stars, 10 out of 10, 100 short ribs out of 100

J&J Express LLC

Great service and drinks. Food was not good at all.

Terry Dey

Excellant dinner choice. My wife and I had a great meal Sunday at this local Southington restaurant. Our waiter was great and the food was beyond great. My steak was perfectly cooked and my wife's seafood perfection from the kitchen. We will be going back even though it's a half hour drive.highly recommended restaurant when good ones are hard to gind.

Joe Cichon Jr.

Excellent menu, generous portions, conscientious service. A fine dining experience. We'll be back.

John Carlos

Liked good food

Stan Krupowies

Excellent food. I had the jambalaya and it was absolutely awesome! Great service and atmosphere round out this restaurant

William Wallberg

Located in the heart of downtown Southington center, Anthony Jack's offers a warm, open dining area and great service. Steaks are highly recommended -- these are always cooked to perfection -- but the entire menu offers great dining fare for almost everyone. Highly recommended.

tracy degrazia

The food here is pretty basic american cuisine, but it is done really well. We each had a different steak menu item, and they were well cooked. The desserts were also delicious. And the service was great. On top of all of this. The prices are great for the quality of the meal you get. Our steaks were very well priced.

Christopher Pike

Everything was great, Mellisa (our waitress) was accommodating and pleasant.

Danielle Pecoraro

Great place! Went with a group of 6. The waitress was excellent and friendly and good with timing. The only complaint was one of the people in our party is vegetarian and they brought her thr wrong soup which had meat. Luckily they realized it pretty quick and fixed it. Price ranged from under $10 for simple things like burgers to around $25 and up for filet and other dishes. Portions were a good amount. The stuff that came with bread was made with beans and other items and the table seemed to enjoy it. Great for a date night or a larger party for maybe a work function. Parking in the back wasnt difficult for a sat night.

Dennis Obie

Food was solid. Service was solid. Not anything amazing. But not anything terrible. The black bean and olive oil spread was very good with the bread served. The salads were adequate and the meatloaf and mashed potatoes were also very good. The wood fired sirloin was also very good.
