First visit to Jacks Smokehouse, but definitely not the last. The food was really tasty & lots of it. We had the sharing platter & although really hungry we couldn't finish it. The pulled pork especially was so tasty & tender. The service was excellent - cheerful, friendly & efficient.

First time at Jacks, booked a table for my sons birthday...staff were lovely, friendly with great customer service. Absolute food coma❤️ Great food...not for dieters! Reasonably priced! Just a shame it was a hot day, towards the end of our meal a group of loud lads that had been on the beer sat in the booth next to us which I didn't appreciate the language and content of conversations where my child could hear😞 Staff was great, gave us a doggy bag...overall a great night.... Recommend the sharing platter...the brisket is the best, plenty of meat on the babyback ribs and the smoked beans, Mac n cheese was on point..absolutely delicious!! Great place (just a shame where it is)

Jacks Smokehouse is one of the best eateries in Oldham. Serving a wide range of American Themed food and drink. It's friendly staff make the atmosphere relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble for them and the Manager is very obliging.

The food was fantastic; Rag pudding & legendary Arthur burger followed by Waffle stack and strawberry & cream sundae. Friendly service and not unreasonable waits for food. The only drawback was our table. Two of us sharing a table of two with a bucket of cutlery, marketing material, a range of sauces meant that we were struggling for table top space. The table was awkwardly positioned so we felt like an after thought. That didn't spoil our evening, we will definitely be going back.

Got a warm welcome and we were able to go to our table straight away. Ordered drinks and we were given plenty of time to relax before ordering. The whole experience was lovely, the food and the service were first class and the owner gave us a complimentary drink when he found out we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. A splendid establishment that we will be visiting again and again.

Lovely, attentive staff and fantastic food, what's more to say! The young girls who serve you always have a smile and nothing is too much trouble. The guy's in the kitchen are always smiling too and even though they are very busy cooking, always shout hello and goodbye to you. Very happy with out visit, once again!

First visit, but thought we knew what to expect having been to similar places in Manchester. Far exceeded our expectations! The menu is mega! The staff were warm and inviting and the servers have a detailed knowledge of all dishes and options which helped us to choose the perfect dish for us. Will definitely go back.

A lovely meal spoiled by awful service. We waited 35 minutes for the order to be taken. Food came quite quickly and was great apart from the beans as a side order. Really runny sauce, not what I was expecting. When it says on the menu contains meat I was expecting to see at least some, not a shred to be seen! Impossible to catch wait staff's eye to order more drinks. Felt totally invisible. They walked past without even glancing at us. Waited another 30 mins for table to be cleared. We only had mains, no starters and the only desert was a kids ice cream. Table was booked for 7 and we were on time, seated quickly but didn't get out until gone 9. Only about 30 mins was eating time so out nice school night treat turned into a very late night. Really disappointed as we'd travelled from urmston due to the good reviews. Prob won't bother again.

We arrived early as a table of 4 for our booking and we're seated straight away - at least 15 minutes early. The food was absolutely amazing and the customer service was great checking if we wanted drinks or anything else. I will recommend to others and will definitely be back myself!

Really nice food and the staff couldn't be better & more helpful. We had a new girl taking our orders but she was really helpful and efficient and anything she was unsure on she went and asked and always returned with the answer. Will definitely be returning.

Excellent American style barbecue food, with great service and lovely staff. We chose boneless wings and the sharing platter which was a little too much to consume, so the restaurant sent us rolling home with a doggy back of brisket, burnt ends and chicken. Highly recommended

Good customer service. Great food and drinks at a reasonable price. The food came fairly quickly and the waitresses always came over to check if our food was okay or if we needed any refills on our drinks. 10/10 would go again.

Food was really good and all came out of the kitchen together for a party of 9, staff were friendly. Not a place for intimate dining as its american diner style but a great place to go for a change with the family and friends. Will definately go again.

Food and service second to none as always from the moment we walked in to when we left. Nothing was too much trouble, including being seated at a larger table, food and drinks order taken and served in excellent time.

Food and staff service both amazing. My only gripe was discomfort. The seats are metal with bars along the back. I'm 31 weeks pregnant so this was extremely uncomfortable throughout the meal. Other than that, we loved everything else about the experience 😁 Thank you

Food was lovely, starters came out quickly the mains took much longer over a hour the kitchen staff seemed to be under quite a strain, and we're being told to hurry by a lady who constantly stood by the hatch. I hope this was just a one of as I would like to go back again.

Lovely place and the food tasted amazing. Only problem was that it took 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order them another 20 minutes before they arrived. Then when we had finished drinks you couldn't get anyone's attention to get another

First visit. Food was lovely but service was very slow 29/12/16 and could have been much worse as staff had said they worked 4+ hours post their shift ending. Couldn't grab anyone's attention when needed. Would go again but if service is the same it would be last visit from us.

Great food but very slow service. 1 hour 45 to get a lunchtime main item and pudding. A large party of people in at lunchtime so told food would be a little delayed but waited over a hour for the main and then pudding of a scoop of ice cream and pancakes and ice cream took over half an hour. Such a shame as first time there.

lovely food and the staff were very friendly only thing I would change would be to not charge extra for slaw and cobs etc that should be part of the meal but apart from that definitely would go again :)

negatives-not given a children's menu when shown to table(my son is 10)had to ask waiter if we ordered drinks via him or did we go to bar.drinks took 20 mins to arrive at the table.when food arrived the burgers were lukewarm at best.sent them back and new burger was still not very hot, but by this time I had had enough so just ate it(son and wife were happy with theirs. only one positive-manager decided to give us 15% off for our inconvenience but to be honest I don't think we will be going again!overall very disappointed!
