Awesome meal - first time in Montana and our fly fishing guide suggested Jakes - he was spot on. Very cool place and one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten. Friendly service and quite quick despite being very busy - even though the staff looked like it was a normal size crowd - they handled it well it seemed. I loved this place and if I ever go back I’ll be sure to stop in again. Keep up the great work !

The food was delicious, the salad fresh and the wine by the glass was a very fair pour. The "baseball "top round steak, with baked potato, salad and a good red wine is terrific.

This place is highly overrated--we selected this for dinner based on the reviews and also two suggestions from others. We spent a week in Billings while my Dad was recovering from open heart surgery, so we were able to experience numerous dining options and were happy with each of our selections except for this place. The food was mediocre and the service was poor. For example, the hostess showed us to our table and then departed before we were even seated or telling us who are server would be. When they brought the entrees, they sat them down and walked away without saying a word or asking if there was anything else we needed (there was, since they forgot the oscar topping on my husband's steak, which they brought out about 5 minutes later.)

Our go to place in Billings. I like that it's local. This time, my fillet mignon wasn't as good as usual. But they are pretty consistent with good quality. Good wine selection.

Great food & service again. Had table of 7 which they set-up for us with short notice, as we had reserved for 5. Beautiful round table with plenty of dinner plate room (no squeezing). Filets, new york strip, and sirloin prepared for diners were equally good -- taste, cooking to diner desire done without fault. Recommend highly!

The food was cooked the way it was ordered.
Prine Rib medium rare and hot.
Was abit noisy but you could talk over the other noise. Waitress was very good, took care of the whole table without a long wait for drinks and filling water glasses.

Our table was VERY wobbly and there's no way the restaurant wouldn't have known this. Our server was so very busy that we didn't want to bother her but owner or mgr of Jakes should notice these things. They are a higher end restaurant for Billings so little things matter. Also, we sat in the area by the window / doors on 1st Ave and we could both smell the exhaust from out on the street.

Not Jake's fault but why the heck doesn't the city do a better job of plowing the streets downtown? I would think the downtown business' are hurting due to this.

We were very impressed with our meal. We both had filet that was very tender and cooked perfectly. Don't miss the butter cake for dessert. I would even recommend a special trip just for dessert.

We have been to Jakes before and had wonderful experiences. This was a horrible experience for us. The waitress was horrible! She may have been new but if that is the case she needs more training before being on her own. I think she ordered my food wrong and when she took it back to be corrected it was overwhelmed with garlic and salt. It was horrible. We were sad this experience had to happen because we usually love Jakes.

My daughter and I took my mom out to Jakes for her Christmas present to be followed by a show at ABT. The food was delicious and service was great. It was so loud, though. So loud. Going to have to reconsider coming back (we were there twice this month) because the volume was over powering. Conversation was very hard to have. But I live it there for the most part.

Service was so slow. I think our server was either new or just working in an industry that isn’t his calling. Food took 70 minutes after we ordered (it was fried chicken, MR filet and a pasta). He either forgot to put in our order or assumed we had all the time in the world.

Water glasses were often left needing to be refilled and he missed a lot of the small gestures that make Jakes so appealing to us as a place to dine.

Ordered the featured dessert - peppermint chocolate cake. It was not at all what we were expecting and needless to say, we didn’t finish it. Definitely won’t make that mistake again.

Everything was simply spot-on. The service, the food, and the ambiance. I loved the char on my ribeye, and my husband loved the cook on the coconut shrimp. When we go out to eat, which is seldom, we expect something above and beyond what we prepare at home. They captured that completely. Loved that service was attentive, but not overwhelming. Some servers can distract from your date - they were very respectful of the fact that we didn't choose to dine there to have a date with those waiting on us. We will back.
