Jakers Bar and Grill in Pocatello
We officially opened on April 20th in 2017. This location was chosen because of how well-known the brand is in this area and because this was the location of the very first Jake’s.

Although we are the newest Jakers location, we’ve had the best opportunity to learn about Jakers from all of the employees, managers, and owners that made themselves available during the first month we were open. We were delighted to have so much support and we were able to experience the inclusive, friendly culture that Jakers provides for it’s employees.

Banquet area seats 2 separate parties up to 20 on each side – or 40 people in the full banquet area.
We have a beautiful patio that has a spectacular view of the valley.

We have enjoyed Jaker's dining for nearly 20 years in Idaho Falls, Great Falls and Pocatello.

Always a pleasure.

Excellent service, great tasting steaks and trout. Wonderful scones. Only problems: steaks ordered medium rare came medium to medium well, and medium came medium rare. Also, side dish of rice was just a pile of plain white rice; no sauce, etc.
Jakers can and has done better, especially for the price.

My friend and I had a nice, relaxed lunch the other day. Jakers has drastically improved their menu and service since opening in Pocatello. Our server, Ryan, is by far, the best! It is a delight to see him when dining here. Highly recommend.

The meatloaf was excellent as were the bacon-wrapped Brussel sprouts. And they’re not stingy with the wine pour.

Service was great. They were out of prime rib before 7:00pm. Rib eye steak was cut way too thin and over seasoned. Didn't finish it. Regular margarita was like drinking lime juice. Salad and soup were good.

Had a great time with 3 of my customers and their spouses. Service was great, food was awesome!!! The only negative comment I have is that I had made a reservation 2 days prior and althought they had a table waiting it was really only big enough for 6. We had a chair on each end and it was really tight and not enough room on the table for everything.

Normally we really enjoy eating at Jakers, but this visit the steaks just didn’t taste right.
The service was good and the rest of the food was good, just the steaks weren’t like usual.

The vegetables and dessert were great. Service was excellent, too. But I ordered a top of the line steak but it was barely average. I might go back and try something else but not the steak.

The setting is amazing. We sat outside and had a great seat. Our appetizers were great. The Gorgonzola fries and calamari were a hit. Unfortunately, my wife's filet was over cooked and the bernaise sauce was lacking. For a $35 steak it was under impressive. My meal was fine, not great but fine.

We had a very nice meal.
As with many places in Pocatello, they seem to want to rush through appetizers, salad and entree rather than allowing a dining experience.

The food was pretty good. Very expensive compared to anything else in town. The atmosphere was okay. It was comfortable. The waiter was terrible. I don't know if he didn't like us or what was going on. We went on Cinco DE Mayo so they had Margaritas for half price, or so the sign said when we entered. I asked the waiter about it. He said it was only in the bar area. So I ordered something else. As we was about to go, some other people got seated beside us. The first thing he told them was the Margaritas were half off. Also, one of the ladies with us ordered the broccoli because the menu said it came with cheese sauce. When it came the waiter said it didn't. On the way out, another lady we saw had the broccoli and hers had cheese sauce. He was a terrible waiter. It made our visit there extremely unpleasant.

Steaks were very stringy and had noticeable amounts of gristle. Not one, but all 6! While they once were remarkable , these steaks could not possibly be top 1/3 of choice as advertised, and the Kobe sirloin was flavorful but also had gristle . I’m guessing that with onion rings no longer being artisan battered huge rings, cost cutting has started to creep in at Jakers. Please bring back the higher quality careful beef purveyor you had in the past . Don’t cut corners or you might as well charge Texas Roadhouse prices. We come to visit about 5-6 times per year but will move on to somewhere else if quality is still lower on the next visit.
Ordered a two ribeye, cap steak, sirloin, and Kobe sirloin. Great flavor but more like select cuts rather than top 1/3 of choice cuts.
Service was great. Menu selection great. Lobster bisque has artificial crab sticks in it but still delicious. Bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts were fantastic. Baked potatoes were amazing .

We used the open table reservation on line, confirmed, etc, but when we arrived they did not find us and said the system wiped all of them out. Luckily on a busy nite they found us a table but what if not? Wasn't very happy about the mixup. We did have a wonderful waitress on this busy nite and she made us feel better about the whole experience!

My apologies for responding so late to your review. We are new to Open Table and are still learning things every day about it. I'm so sorry about your mix up, but glad we could get you taken care of. We are keeping a daily check on all the reservations that come through so this problem is not encountered by other guests. We hope you will join us again in the future.

This is the new Jakers in Pocatello that we've never been before. It was a visit for belated birthday celebration for our dad/grandfather.

We made reservation for 3 pm for dinner service since some of us had to travel from Salt Lake City. Overall, it has been a great experience. 1 out of 3 Filet Mignon was overcooked. Service as far as attention from waitress was great but can be better in attending water needs.

Jakers need to expand its dessert quality and choices. The white chocolate cookie was too sweet. The silk pie was too hard of a consistency to be a silk pie. Otherwise, the creme brulee was great.

There were open tables everywhere but the hostess told us it was a 20 minute wait unless we wanted to sit in the bar. It was in the same room /same kitchen. There was a strong smell of sewer outside, when I mentioned it they seemed to ignore me.

However. Smell was gone by the tine we left and food and service was great. Will visit again.

Thank's for reviewing Jakers. We're new to Open Table and I hadn't been aware of review's yet, but glad you took the time to share. I'm not positive what the situation was in the restaurant during your visit for there to be a wait with open tables, but I'll coach my host team to be clear with guests as to what the situation is. The smell that was so unfortunate to experience has been addressed and is gone! Glad you enjoyed the service and food. Hope you will join us again soon! Stevie Browning
