Went in Jimmy Jacks for a steak dinner. Received the friendliest ever greeting from front of house and again from all the staff I met. They certainly worked hard and were very impressive.

Had onion rings as a starter, with a BBQ dip and a Scotch Steak for mains. The steak was cooked to perfection and very tender.

If I am ever in Whangarei again, I would certainly eat here again.

Normally our visits to Jimmy Jacks have always been great. However, this last one was a bit disappointing. The service was good, no problems there. However, at one stage, there were about 4 people all serving us at the same time. I am not sure if this was supposed to be the case or not. When we ordered our meals, we had starters as well as mains. Three of us got our starters, but the fourth person didn't get their starter at the same time. It finally came about 30 seconds before their main arrived. So there was the main sitting there getting cold while they quickly tried to eat their starter. Another person in our group also got their main while they were still eating their starter. Not good enough guys! Why couldn't everyone get their starters at the same time and why would you serve the mains when people were not ready to have them? Some coordination is needed in your kitchen!

Popped in here for lunch on our way north. Had great service and awesome food at a reasonable price. Would happily return. Garlic, bacon and cheese loaf is a must. Sorry no pics, we were really hungry.

Sorry, but this was super average food. Nothing to rave about. The $35 cidar jug was the best part of dinner.

Best restaurant on our holiday.
The front man, Bryan was the right person to be greeted by and ask questions. We went 3 times and travelled back to Whangarei just to revisit the restaurant.
