Do You Remember Mountain Jack’s Steakhouse?

Google Maps Street View

One of the restaurant chains that is now part of Michigan’s past is Mountain Jacks. Do you remember eating there?

Mountain Jacks had locations across the state including on Westnedge in Portage (where today’s Logan’s Roadhouse is) as well as Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Metro Detroit and more. There were as many as 21 locations of the chain before it filed for bankruptcy in 2008.

The Last Mountain Jack’s?

There appears to be one Mountain Jack’s location that has managed to say open nearly a decade after the chain when out of business. It’s located in Lafayette, Indiana.

The restaurant appears to have a similar menu with the beef and seafood options as well as the popular cajun seasoning and a variety of sauce and topping options.

The Lafayette Mountain Jack’s ranks high with a 4.5 out of 5 rating on TripAdvisor.

One Lingering Sign of Mountain Jack’s in Portage

Tucked away behind a tree along the side of Portage Road across from the Kalamazoo airport is a sign for Kiwanis International that states the group’s meetings are held at Moutnain Jack’s Thursdays at Noon. Still there as of May 2017, the sign has lingered for years after the restaurant’s closure.
