Jak’s is a great neighborhood spot. Portions are large, satisfying and a great value. My steak medallions were served with a side salad, huge baked potato and vegetables. Bread is available on request. The meat was tender and tasty, with a delicious flavor of Moroccan spices. Will definitely return when they reopen. Understand they will continue to do takeout.

I've been missing a great steak meal, and Jak's took care of me! The food was outstanding - perfectly cooked steak, and I like that the salad and veggies are included (not everything ala carte as many steakhouses). Our server was excellent - gave me a great recommendation on wine - not the most expensive, but perfect with my meal. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and I think their pricing is very reasonable for the quality. I felt very comfortable with the distancing and patrons wearing masks when not seated.

Came with family. Ordered 3 steaks, a burger and the stuffed halibut. We are on a specific diet so asked for certain concessions on 2 of the meals. The server helped us with no questions asked other than asking if anyone had any food allergies (which no one ever asks). We enjoyed all the food, the ambiance and the great service. Thank you Jak's for a great experience!

I always order a filet mignon because I don't like dissecting my meat to eliminate the fat you get with cuts. I ordered the 10.5oz filet for $49 and I requested it to be cooked medium well. When I received it, there were 3 clear lobes of meat, divided by 2 large lines of fat. I've never had that with a filet, and I thought I was given the wrong cut. I decided not make a big deal out of it and dissected away. There was even more fat running through the steak than I thought, and it was cooked medium at best. I didn't even eat half of it because I was still getting fatty pieces in each bite. I told the server I was very unsatisfied and why, so he took it back to the kitchen. He came back and said the chef and manager agreed it was a poor cut of meat and they would be inspecting the rest of it, and they would therefore be comping us our $13 brussel sprout appetizer, but we would still have to pay for the horrible $50 steak. I've eaten here many times, and have never been had this kind of food experience before, but I guarantee I will never eat here again.

Hello there, Chris! Thank you for leaving such an honest review. Unlike most steakhouses, we do serve our filet mignons on the chain. It means you get more steak, but there is usually a bit of fat connecting the chain from the filet. Although, sounds like your steak had an excessive amount of fat. We always try our best to send out the best quality steaks, but sometimes a sub par cut makes it way to the table. I'm very sorry this happened to you.

My steak was cooked incorrectly twice. It was supposed to be cooked medium well and the first time was delivered very well done and dry. The second attempt was rare The server left my side items to snack on while they recooked my steak - but then attempted to deliver the new steak on a small plate - to be transferred back to my plate with my now very cold sides. Then we ordered dessert and it was burnt and soggy (creams brûlée). We had to choose a different dessert (apple cobbler) which was a huge disappointment - do not recommend. The manager had zero customer service skills and the waiter seemed to think that the fact that “they talked to the cooks multiple times” somehow made up for our horrible experience. There was no attempt to even cover the cost of the dessert until we brought it up as unacceptable. Errors can be made - and the blame for this terrible experience lays directly with the manager - who was unable to successfully manage a bad experience and ensure her clients felt talked care of - even in a less than ideal situation. Her ending comment was, “well - we didn’t seem to hit the mark with your order tonight.” I give this experience a 0 star - and I’m usually a huge fan of Jaks - but this was a total disappointment.

Bill the server was amazing, food was delicious, huge portions. Even during these uncertain covid times, their restaurant was immaculately clean, well spaced out seating, had digital menus you can look on your phone or single use paper menus available. All employees had mask on and lots of sanitizer stations through out the restaurant. I also liked their sanitized pens and used pen area. As well as their protocol for having us box our own left overs (i prefer to box my own normally). I would highly recommended all to come by and enjoy Jaks!
