Our meals were great. Kitchen was extremely slow. It took a long time to receive our side salads.

One of our favorite places. Steaks & skewers are the best. If you’re in the mood for a burger-you want to get it here. Extremely delicious! Not a steak eater-no problem-their salmon dinner is excellent

Had a great meal and server last night. We had brussels for the starter - my mother in law had the skewers, I had the petite filet oscar style and my husband a larger filet. Everything was delicious including my martini! They were NOT understaffed or at least it did not seem. Jak’s is our go to and they now take reservations.

So nice to just enjoy great steaks and cocktails, classic not trendy, great service. And the entrees include sides AND salad. Cool, dim interior so fantastic on a hot summer night. Loved my Cava Guava - cava with an upside-down guava popsicle in it! One of us had the crab-stuffed halibut, rich and delicious. Always a good experience.

Restaurant had a funky bad smell. Food was great. I should have asked to be reseated, but wasn’t sure another table would have solved whatever the problem was.

My wife had the Jak's bene. The mignon was very tender and flavorful. I had the chicken fried sirloin steak, which was among the best (and I've tried several other restaurants). All of the sides were great and they were happy to add additional sauces, cheese etc.

Our server Caleb was the hit. We came for the prime rib Monday special as I have been wanting prime rib for some time. It had little flavor, very hard to cut and chew, and the horseradish sauce served with it seemed to be lacking a horseradish flavor. The vegetables were perfect, and the baked potato was ok...not steaming hot. I also noticed the plates the food was served was room temperature...should be heated.

Always greeted with smiles from the moment we walk in. Ambience/outstanding service/delish drinks and the food is exceptionally prepared and fresh.. every time!!
Make sure to make reservations as it is getting crowded since covid restrictions has been lowered.

I made a reservation for special occasion, deliberately asked in advance for a cozy spot in the restaurant. When we arrived we waited for 20 mins after the reservation time and we were suggested a table near the bar and exit. I asked about a cozier spot, and we were seated by the ugly wall in another 10 min. And it is the first time in my experience when I was charged for a birthday piece of cake in a restaurant. Food is ok, not great; service is terrible.

We’ve been going to Jaks for years (decades?!) and love it every time. Our cousin came in from Ohio and it was the perfect place to celebrate his birthday. Fabulous food, wonderful staff and nice ambiance.

Food taste was good but the food was not hot just warm. Service was great. I was surprised that my ice tea tasted like it wasn't fresh brewed, was it out of the bar machine ?
