Good food and service, shame about the noise!

The upstairs Steak Bar is excellent for an evening meal, good selection, reasonable prices and good service. Downside is the access through the bar downstairs which is very noisy and seems to need Bouncers on tap.....and a large collection of smokers clustered around the front door....ugh!

Great place - very busy - very diverse . Attention to detail 110% clean and tidy. Disappointed as had eaten prior to arrival - menu looked inviting - supported with the aromatic mouth watering visual dishes arriving at the other tables ... Will return. :-)

On a visit to IOM for my birthday my friend says go to Jaks. I had tigers prawn which were good and a sirlion steak cooked just as I had asked. Good choice of beers. The staff were friendly and good. Would say if you want a good meal in Douglas go to Jaks.

We come here quite often and it's usually really lovely. It's always nice to try and get a window table but it can be really busy so not always guaranteed. Food is always nicely cooked and portions are of a good size. It's a nice place to come with the family. Staff pleasant and very accommodating with small children.

Visited here after a local recommendation and not disappointed. Nice atmosphere and very busy for a midweek night which is always a good sign. The food was great, staff friendly and decent value for money.

Husband and I took our 2 young children for mid-week meal on our last night of our holiday on IOM. Staff were lovely, very accommodating and really lovely. The girl waiting on was obviously new but someone was shadowing her to help if necessary which shows to me if they care about their staff they care about their customers too.... More
