We both ordered Ribeye Steak, mushrooms and onions and broccoli. Both dishes came out lukewarm. Sent mine back, came back again lukewarm. Very disappointed for $44 a plate. French Onion soup is good but now much smaller. Our second time there.

Ordered a burger medium rare that came back well done. Other food was satisfactory but not great. Cocktails were served in oddly tiny glasses - the drinks themselves were fine (though a bit sweet), they were just in very poorly chosen glassware. Odd dining room. Was really looking forward to this visit and was disappointed!

Jake's is our go-to whenever we are in Billings. Great food & service. Wonderful for a casual dinner or a special night out.

Had hoped to be on the patio but it was closed for the season already. Inside was fine with plenty of space. Our waitress was so good to us in all respects. Very pleasant experience.

Great meal. Our server was terrific. We asked for recommendations on what to see while in town. Even though he was new to the area, he was very helpful.

The waitress Sherry Deming was excellent!! She had practically the whole restaurant to take care of but she was delightful!! She was running her behind off, to put it bluntly. How she managed to serve everyone so efficiently and with a smile I don’t know!

I highly recommend the shrimp wontons. They were to die for. We also had the French onion soup and the filet- would recommend that also. Others in my group had the fettuccine. That wasn’t the best, it was a bit greasy and the menu didn’t mention it had artichokes in it. Our server was wonderful and the ambiance and privacy was I think the restaurant was nice.

The service was awful. Messed up the order and took 25-30 minutes to get my food. When it finally did come out it was good but not worth the wait. Especially considering the restaurant wasn’t that busy.

Jake's was conveniently located and had an attractive appearance. The staff were friendly and the waiter was efficient. The steaks were tasty and done correctly. My only problem was the noise level due to being seated a a table.

The food was fantastic. We had the wontons for an app and they were hot and fresh. Salads were brought out promptly and dinner the sirloins were cooked perfect. I had a lemon drop martini and it was less than desirable. It had chunks of ice and tasted mostly like fake lemon juice. The time it took for our server to even get to our table was inexcusable. She brought us a pitcher of water and set it on the table and left. The pitcher was a plastic Pizza Hut pitcher. Not ok. She never checked on our food or offered another drink to us. In fact the male server in the same section was the one who cleared our plates and acknowledged us several times. He even got a cash tip from us. Our anniversary was that day and although we loved the food and always have at Jakes, unfortunately our date was less than fun due to the lack of proper service. I would never have her serve either of us again, and that comes from two people who have worked in the front and the back of the house for several years in the past. Jakes can do better.

The food and service is always good but since the Rona hit the country it has caused the restaurant to remove some items we love. Hope they bring them back in time. Although we did find a new favorite appetizer. All in all was great and we are understanding of the situation in whole. We will be back again

Our service was outstanding. Our server was impecable, when we asked if we could go off menu for an appetizer he went into the cooks to find out if it was possible. Not only was it possible it was delicious. We will definitely be coming back.

Food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was the worst I have had at Jake’s. Makenzie L should not be a server as she has no desire to serve.
Never was at the table, didn’t tell specials and she has no knowledge of the beer or wine list and have attitude.
Was a birthday dinner but really didn’t feel like it. Thank God the food was delicious.

1st time there. We reserved a table for 4 and expected a quiet,decently located table but got one in a corner next to a waitress station on a major through route. I had the fillet mignon which was only ok. Not the flavorful steak you would expect for 34 dollars. My wife had the halibut and it was excellent. Good service.
