Great service and food (filet, burger). Will be back for sure!
Jak's is reliably good with excellent service and meat cooked to order properly. The restaurant is a bit noisy even when not full. Great fries is that's important to you and a good selection of beers.
Steak tender and cooked to perfection.
Great steaks. Includes salad and potato, plus bread, which is great.
Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed your time with us!
So nice to be back! Based on our excellent server's recommendation, I had a crab cake atop my Caesar salad. This was the best crab cake I've had in any restaurant, packed with crab meat, delicately fried, and not overly spiced. The succulent crab taste prevailed. So good! Spouse had a Prime Rib Dip sandwich, piled high with beef and served with fries and a rich a jus. Their signature dessert (which I cannot locate on their online menu) was a triple chocolate torte, all mode, atop raspberry coulis. It's rich and creamy and easily shared. I think we are happily trending towards becoming regulars at this neighborhood gem.
Thank you so much for your review, Sheila! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and are planning to join us again!
We went to celebrate our daughter graduating from University of Washington. We were seated and served promptly. The food was excellent and the service was terrific! The bread was hot, the portions were large, and the steaks and chops were amazing! 5 stars!
Thank you so much for joining us for such a special occasion and for leaving a fantastic review, Virginia! Congratulations to your daughter! We wish her the best of luck in the future!
Fantastic service!! 3 of 4 entrees were amazing. The boneless ribeye from regular menu was surprisingly and sadly quite tough. Pork chop and halibut was wonderful and the special ribeye was great!
Thank you for the review, Sandi! We're sad to hear that we missed the mark on the ribeye! We try our best to serve the highest quality cuts, but sometimes a sub par one slips past us. Please let your server know in the future! We are always willing to correct mistakes and get you the meal you deserve!
The steak in the steak salad was very tuff without much flavor.
Thank you for the review, John! We're very sorry to hear that the steak was tough. We try our best to serve the highest quality cuts, but sometimes a sub par one slips past us. Please let your server know in the future! We are always willing to correct mistakes and want to serve you the best quality steak!
Good if you eat steak, but as a a pollopescatarian I was severely disappointed with their rubbery, overcooked shrimp.
Thank you for the review! We're very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your shrimp! If anything isn't to your liking in the future, please always let your server know! We are always willing to fix our mistakes and get you the proper entrée you deserve.
Awesome food. The prime rib is fabulous. The wedge salad is a must!
Thank you so much for your review, Susan! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our Prime Rib Special and wedge salad!
Jak’s is the very definition of consistent. From start to finish, the quality of the food and the care from the staff truly make this a great experience. They could easily charge more but they choose to do a great job and not break your budget! From a food standpoint I enjoy their filet mignon, French onion soup, cobbler desserts and they make a mean Martini. You will not be disappointed!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We are happy to hear that you consistently have a great time dining with us. Can't go wrong with those recommendations!
Everything was wonderful. Max our server was super sweet and made our night. We came for my boyfriends birthday and the free dessert with a candle was so nice. The only complaint that we had, and it’s minor. Is that my boyfriends steak was a little more rare than he liked. Other than that everything was perfect especially the bacon wrapped scallops and my rack of lamb. Next time we’re in Seattle we will definitely visit Jaks.
Thank you so much for the review, Kai! We're grateful that you joined us to celebrate your boyfriend's birthday! We're also happy to hear that Max took good care of you. We are very lucky to have him on our team! Did you let Max know about the steak temperature? We are always happy to get the steak back onto the grill and to your preferred temperature. If anything like that ever happens in the future, do not hesitate to let your server know!
Great neighborhood steak house. Great good snd service was first class.
Give it a try.
Thank you for the review, Paul! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us.
Service was excellent. Everything was spotless and trusted that cleaning practices were top notch
Thank you so much for the review!
Closed on our home
Thank you so much for the review!
The place looked a little run down. Prices were pretty good for the food which wasn’t top of the line, but was very good. Our server couldn’t have been sweeter, but she wasn’t very good at her job (didn’t arrive at our table until we asked, forgot things, messed up dessert). The drinks were very blah (for $14 I think I got a tequila and soda on the rocks with a few not-quite-ripe strawberries thrown in. All in all a good—not great—dinner.
Thank you very much for the honest review. We are sorry to hear that we didn't hit our mark during your visit with us. We appreciate your feedback, and will use it to be better in the future!
Released from Covid quarantine!!!!! .....I had heard about Jak's Grill for quite awhile, but always had other options for steak houses; my mistake. I should have been at Jak's Grill years ago. It has an "old school" feel ( no pun intended as literally in the in UW's neighborhood) with a serious commitment to it's product, very personable service, without being intrusive and our server, Jesse F. ,was pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable about the offerings preparations.
Our party of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our each of our dinners: Crab Cakes, 18 oz. boneless ribeye, and NZ rack of lamb. Jak's has many potatoes offerings, including the UFO (garlic mashed topped with a potato pancake.....gotta be hungry). I think the "unexpected surprise" was the great the house salad!!! Very fresh, crisp, w/ wonderful dressings. Very high value at a reasonable price.
Oh yes, we are already planning out next visit.
Thank you so much for the lovely review! It is truly an honor that you decided to join us once released from quarantine! We're grateful you finally passed on other steak houses to dine with us! As they say, better late than never! All of your choices are great recommendations, and we love hearing that you thoroughly enjoyed each one. Jesse is a very knowledgeable server and bartender, and we're glad that he took care of you during your visit with us! We hope to see you soon!
I had the Jaks filet mignon for the first time. Oh it was delicious I will have it every time I go . Service was excellent very nice staff.
Thank you so much for your review, Mel! We're happy to hear that the food and service were both excellent!
Great. Everything was excellent. Great service, great value.
Thank you for the review, Jordan! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us!
The 'Cowboy Steak' is to die for!Perfectly cook to perfection. The flavor explodes in your mouth with sip of your red wine! All the sides and salads were amazing!
Thank you for the review, Jerry! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your Cowboy Ribeye!
Very good service if ever you go there ask for the waiter Bill he’s very very good plus I’ve know him on a personal level but he’a very good waiter
Thank you so much for the review! Bill is definitely a very talented and fantastic server. We are very grateful to have him on our team!
Lovely service. Delicious food. Complete with a creme brûlée on the house for our anniversary.
Thank you so much for the review and for joining us to celebrate your anniversary! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us!
Gave the food a lower rating because the egg whites where runny and I specially asked for the whites to be firm.
Thank you for the honest review, Carl! We're very sorry to hear that the eggs weren't to your liking. In the future, please let your server know! We are always happy to correct any mistakes to get you exactly what you ordered!
Jak's Sunday brunch is family favorite. Everyone enjoys the food and our server has always been delightful! We go often.
Thank you so much, Gregory! We're honored to be your family favorite for Sunday Brunch!
Jak’s serves up steak house staples with great staff. Definitely the most reasonably priced steakhouse (at the top quality) in Seattle. Uses the beef buyer as another 5 star chain steak house in the Seattle / Bellevue area, but charges 1/2 the cost. We were at Seattle Children’s hospital for 250+ days, and ate at Jak’s weekly. Love the French
Thank you so much for the lovely review, Kimberly! We are honored to serve this neighborhood, and its our mission to keep prices reasonable and accessible to our guests. It means a lot that you took notice. Thank you so much for joining us weekly during your extended stay in the area.
Last night we celebrated my husband's birthday at Jak's as we have for several years.
We started with the bacon wrapped scallops which were delicious, shortly after we had the green salad that accompanies the dinner. Fresh and crisp greens with just enough blue cheese dressing.
For dinner I had the petite filet with Demi glacé, and my husband had a rib eye. They were perfectly done and scrumptious.
Our favorite server Bill was at our table to make sure everything was perfect and that we were happy. We were happy and Bill is the best! We ask for him every time we go to Jak's.
It was the perfect birthday dinner and my husband was very pleased.
Thank you so much for the fantastic review, Melinda! It's an honor that you decided to join us for your husband's birthday. We're happy to hear that Bill did (and always does) take great care of you during your visits!
Good food! The steak was perfect as usual. I tried the Oscar and it was nummalicious
Thank you for the review, Darren! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your steak and your visit with us.
Food up to its normal prepandemic greatness. Sky was wonderful, attentive, knowledgeable and prompt. Felt great to be back.
Thank you for the review, Steve! It's great to have you back! We're glad to hear that Sky took care of you. We are lucky to have her on our team!
The food was delicious, as always. We’ve been very cautious with COVID and this was our first in restaurant dining experience in over a year...it didn’t disappoint!!
Thank you for joining us for your first restaurant experience back! We appreciate your review, and spending your first outing with us is the biggest compliment ever! Glad to hear that we didn't disappoint!
A neighborhood standby, with GREAT quality food and service. Not a massive menu, and that's what allows them to excel with the items they offer. Did I mention the food was great? The food is great. Nice neighborhood atmosphere, experienced quality service, and prices for the great food (that's right, the food is great) that are reasonable and would cost much more at a fancier place with higher rent. Before I forget...the food is great.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write in, Dave! We love the neighborhood we serve and are lucky to be part of such a wonderful community.
We went out to the Mariners and then stop by after the game for dinner.
Thank you for the review! We're grateful you chose us for your post game meal!
Great service, food is delicious. I especially like that I can make a reservation these 'pandemic' days as usually you can't. Seem to be doing a very good job of keeping the numbers of diners down, the cleaning staff is quick to get the tables ready for the next group.
Thank you so much for leaving us a review, Kim! We appreciate that our pandemic policies don't go unnoticed! We've been very strict with the maximum capacity and disinfecting and sanitizing tables between guests. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us!
Thank you for leaving us a review and for choosing to dine with us!
Love Jaks - Great steak and you still get a full meal. Every state comes with salad, vegetable and potato so you’re not getting nickel and dime for every side dish
The salmon was incredible and perfectly cooked. Steak sandwich was also wonderful. I don't remember the servers name but he was great. Planning to go there again for my b-day.
Thank you so much for leaving a review, Cindy! We're happy to hear that the salmon and steak sandwich were both wonderful. We hope to see you soon for your birthday!
We met friends for dinner. The last time we went out with them was at JaK’s pre-pandemic. Great service and food and drinks.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We're grateful you decided to bring your friends to dine with us. Welcome back!
Monday night Prime Rib is excellent value. Service was great, parking convenient and great experience.
Thank you so much for the review, Bill! We're glad that you were able to join us for Prime Rib Monday, and that you enjoyed your visit with us!
Always a great experience, excellent food, wine, service
Thank you so much for your review! We're happy to hear that you always have a great experience dining with us!
The second time I’ve been to this restaurant both times exceptional food and service
Service was outstanding! Our steaks were absolutely delicious and cooked perfect but the sides were really lacking for the price. The potato pancakes may not have been cooked all the way, not sure. The pancakes maybe had unmelted cheese, it seemed like the potatoes were crunchy and my broccoli had nothing on it, just steamed plain. Just a little lack luster for the price. I would definitely go back for the service and the steaks!
Thank you so much for the review! It does indeed sound like your potato pancakes were undercooked and your broccoli under seasoned. If that ever happens again, please let your server know. We are always happy to make any corrections during your time with us!
