Restaurant review: Jack’s Backyard brunch

Be forewarned that if you head to Jack’s Backyard on a Sunday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., you won’t be able to order from the lunch menu. But that was perfectly fine with me because I’m a huge fan of brunch — and good brunch, at that.

My choice was the Jack’s Benedict, which is pretty much eggs Benedict with bacon instead of ham, plus avocado. I ate every bite, and asked the waitress for toast to sop up the rest of the egg yolk and hollandaise. (Jack’s also has a couple of other Benedict variations on the menu.) My husband stuck with something simple — biscuits and gravy — and was more than satisfied. Another friend ordered an omelet; and another a piece of toast with a cooked egg in the middle, which included the cut-out circle of toast for "soppin’", according to the menu. I didn’t see much food left on plates by the time we finished our meal — a good sign.

None of us ordered the adult brunch beverages, but I saw plenty of tables around us with what looked like mimosas and bloody Marys, so I’m assuming that Jack’s bar — which may be bigger than the restaurant area — could whip up any kind of beverage patrons want.
