The new restaurant is owned by Steve Lockton, executive chef Lindsay Donnelly and general manager Bonnie Tyler, who have given the space a breezy, Caribbean ambience to go along with what Donnelly calls a classic American grill menu with upscale touches. Highlights of the menu include aged ribeye steaks, skillet-fried chicken and a fourteen-ounce bone-in pork chop. On the burger side, the signature "infused" burger is stuffed with a three-cheese blend and loaded with sautéed onions and fresh herbs and garlic.
Named in honor of Lockton's father and Kansas City native Jack Lockton, the restaurant also offers slow-cooked meats like 24-hour pulled pork and baby back ribs finished with a housemade KC-style sauce. In addition to his new restaurant, Lockton is also a shareholder in Punch Bowl Social and Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs.
Jack's will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with Sunday brunch beginning bright and early at 7 a.m.
