THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ben & Jack's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Ben & Jack's boasts all the trappings of a traditional steakhouse: a long list of classic cocktails, an even longer line-up of globally sourced wines (including many robust varieties to pair with red meat) and, of course, plenty of hearty offerings from the kitchen. The menu doesn’t mess around, listing in straightforward fashion the cuts of meat along with typical sides (creamed spinach, oversize onion rings). A thick filet mignon was properly cooked, while the dinosaur-size sirloin could feed three people, and the porterhouse up to four. A boatload of seafood is available, too, including grilled tuna, large Maryland crab cakes, and Chilean sea bass. The low-ceilinged, dark-wood atmosphere feels a tad oppressive, but that isn’t anything a couple of strong martinis and a steak can’t cure.
