Jake's Bar & Grill
Jake's is our go-to place when we come to Billings. I dream about their Chicken a la Jake's when I know we are eating there...it's the best!
The food was amazing. I wish I knew how good the potato cakes were. The only regret i have is not ordering 6 of those instead of my prime rib, and the prime rib was not bad by any means. When a side dish outshines an excellent cut of meat, you know a restaurant is doing something right.
I felt this was quite the average steak house, but charging more than the quality. The steaks we had were tender, but little flavor. And by flavor, I don't mean salt. It tasted almost like salted cardboard. I had the Jake steak, and my wife a 10 oz sirloin. I am from the Texas coast, and I love crab. I didn't taste crab on this. My daughter liked the filet, and I didn't taste it, so maybe it was better.
Service was very slow. We were there at about 6, but the server said they weren't busier than usual. We ordered wine and didn't get it until about when the meal was served.
The place was clean and the server was friendly.
No waiting for seating.
This was my 3rd visit to Jake's and I still love it. The service was above par, from hostess to servers. It was busy in the restaurant this evening but our food was still served hot and timely.
We have had many dinners here but this had to be the best. Our server was awesome, food was amazing and it was an all-around great evening
Excellent as usual, love the place, my ribs and drink were very good, my wife's steak was cooked perfectly
Very classy restaurant. Great food! Great service!
I love Jake’s but the service Saturday night was a bit lacking in the fact that the waiter seemed very unhappy during his time with us and it showed through his service. We didn’t get our drinks refilled at all and he gave us the check without asking if we wanted/needed anything else. Maybe he was having a really bad day and I can appreciate that but it was our anniversary so that night was special to us. The food was fantastic as always - I’ll definitely be returning! :)
Avacado dip was great. Salad was good.
Then after 20 min. out came the main course.
The prime rib was the worst in 3 states. Over-cooked and tasteless!
My full rack of ribs was so dry it crumbled when cutting apart.
Never did get our water filled!
Overheard people at next table loudly complaining about food.
Every one at both tables, including my wife and myself, agreed that every main course on the menu was VERY over-priced !
It was the noisiest place I have ever dined!
Overall really good experience. We'll be back for sure.
Food is good. Eating area is loud. My wife’s favorite restaurant.
Usually a good place Valentine's day it wasn't. Rushed through the meal. Got salads almost immediately then meal right behind it. Not enjoyable or relaxing. Like they were moving people through to get more in.
Jake's is always a nice place to eat. Service was prompt and the food was good.
Service and food are excellent
We went to Jake's on New Year's Eve for dinner. We both ordered the filet mignon medium rare. It was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our server was very attentive and personable. It was a great experience.
Very friendly professional service. Nice atmosphere and best of all, great food!
I didn’t care for the flavor of the demi glaze on my steak. The pan fried shrimp my daughter got was much too breaded for her and she didn’t care for the flavor. My husbands halibut was good.
We went to the west end Jakes for the first time in a long time with a gift card. They are still pretty good food for a very expensive price. Not sure I will be going back for awhile.
The waitress did not come by to check on how our food was, nor did she ever refill our waters. The steaks were ordered medium rare, but came out medium to medium well.
Server needs to be attentive, had to ask for drinks numerous times. 10 minutes passed between water and the greeting from the server. No bread offered. Good food doesn't always make up for mediocre service
Jake's never disappoints. Changed reservations for 2 to 8 people and so accommodating. Staff, food and atmosphere was wonderful. There is a reason the parking lot is full EVERY evening. Best Certified Angus Steaks in town!
Very accommodating to our request made via Open Table for specific seating and wonderful service.
My second time and was equally impressed with both visits. I love this restaurant and it is my first choice to bring friends and family when they come to visit.
My birthday dinner was great! The service was excellent. The waitress was phenomenal!It is really loud! I would prefer a quieter atmosphere.
Carl was awesome and met all our requests and needs. Always made sure water glasses full. He made the evening great. Thank you Carl.
Tomatoe basil soup - excellent
Salads - excellent
We have eaten here many times & had great food. This time our burgers were SO well done they were crunchy. If we hadn’t been so hungry we would have sent them back. Maybe it was a bad night, but the food was really poor. I should have complained
Food is too expensive for the quality. The service from Hailey was great though.
Very good food. Except my wife's King Crab was cold. Was cooked but then just have been frozen cooked and then not heated up enough. Realize it is a steak place in Montana and not known for seafood. Three prime rib I had though was perfect and among the best I've ever had. Melt in your mouth tender and seasoned to perfection! Wait staff very good.
Food was great as always. Server had poor attutude. Even interrupted me several times while I order. Never offered dessert. Never offered more drinks. You could tell she does not enjoy her job.
We had a great time, good food and wine but made exceptional by our server Nathan. He was knowledgeable, courteous and fun.
We found Jake's on Opentable and it sounded like a place we would enjoy. We dined there for the first time passing through Billings and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food is top quality and is prepared beautifully. Our server was excellent and we wish we could return there the next time we pass through Billings. A special thank you to our waiter for rescuing my cell phone that I left on the table and later retrieved from him. Thank you!!
Overall the experience was pleasant, the food was good, though not as good as the price charged would make one think. We had to fend our food from multiple flies, but in benefit of the doubt, they have an outdoor patio. Again for the prices charged we didn't feel we should have to fight flies, have a drink forgotten and we've had better flavored meals for the price range. The waitress apologized for the forgotten drink and overall wasn't bad, just not stellar.
For the price range I'd try elsewhere for a dinner, but we did agree we'd come back to try their burgers for lunch sometime.
Great for casual or fine dining. We last had lunch here. Good variety, well-prepared, tasty and reasonably-priced. Great selection of beers and speciality cocktails. Clean, very good service, lots of parking.
The food was good. The service was good at first, but at the end of the meal we were being totally ignored by our waitress. After sitting and not eating for at least a 1/2 hour or more, I finally flagged her down. She had 2 other tables that she was very attentive to that I was watching and was ignoring ours. It was my birthday and she offered nothing, but a "oh, happy birthday" when she picked up the check.
Very very good food, our waiter was the bomb, giving us tips on our upcoming trip to Nashville, amazingly good food and service!!!
Wish that we had known that there was a limited amount of blackened prime rib! That was the whole reason why we went there for celebrating Fathers Day!
My steak could have been better but overall a good place to eat.
thank you, we had a great meal. service was excellent, we'll be back again!!
The food was good but it was so noisy that we could not hear the waitress clearly nor talk to each other without shouting. Also we had a small child with us but there was no option for children's portions.
