A NOTE FROM CHEF JACQUES: Given the situation at hand, the uncertainty of the winter months ahead, and with an abundance of caution in mind for our dedicated team and loyal patrons, we have decided to make the difficult decision to hibernate and temporarily pause operations until spring.

Reservations are available until January 17th and will resume March 10, 2021

Merci Beaucoup and Stay Safe!

Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

Another fabulous dinner at Jacques Brasserie! Being outside, even when a little chilly is magnificent! They have overhead heaters and the plastic down on the arbor, so no worries there. The food is classic and always delicious, the service is perfect. I love this place!

The breads, cheeses and souffles were wonderful, as were the salad and the entrees. I found the onion soup not as rich as I expected (my wife disagrees). The service was excellent (Sandra) and the wine from a local Midelburg winery was unexpected surprise (delightful). All in all another outstanding meal which we've come to expect at Chez Francois.

Outdoor setting at Brasserie very nice. Service attentive; but did not ask if we wanted hot drinks with dessert. Food delicious, but potatoes unnecessary in bouillabaisse and beef bourgoignon. Soufflés excellent, as always.

This is our go to place for our anniversary. We absolutely love the food, service, and ambiance. It is a little pricey, so be prepared for that. Overall though it is worth the price and we always have enough left over for a lunch portion the next day.

Another GREAT meal at the Brasserie! We had a wonderful time eating all of our favorites, i.e., escargots, mesclun salad, the great garlic bread and bibelkase, and souffles (although we split on the seafood and steak--also outstanding). Love the always relaxed and attentive service from your marvelous staff, who always anticipate our needs.

Food was very good. The menu focuses on classics without a lot of innovation but we enjoyed everything we ordered. My dining companion had a burger that she said was absolutely perfect. I had a halibut special which was great. We also had some oysters which were fresh and very tasty. Service is impeccable and the rustic inn location is a great environment.

Would be a great place for a date or a high end business lunch. It’s not a cheap meal but it was worth the money.

We have been patrons since the very early 80s. I have never ever had a bad experience at this fabulous restaurant. It is truly one of my most favorite dining pleasures. I have traveled this country extensively and still have not found any restaurant that is comparable to my beloved L’Aubuerge. Also the wait staff has always been incredible and it never felt pretentious. Could not give this establishment anything other than the absolute best wishes to Chef and staff.

Wonderful fire pit. It was a very breezy cold evening hut we chose to sit near the fire put and had a very delicious meal. Most meaty succulent soft shell crab, lobster thermidor, blue cheese salad, onion soup, and soufflees—yum! Friendly, attentive service, too!
