We have been to Jaks several times recently and on this occasion five of us went for early evening meals prior to a theatre visit. We chose three steak meals, a vegetarian lasagne and scampi with a variety of accompaniments. They were reasonably busy and we seemed to wait a while for our food to arrive but we all enjoyed...

3 of us ate. Service was very quick and food was very nice. Can recommend the fillet steak and burger with cheese and bacon. All too full for pudding.

Sport bars and restaurants don't normally mix, so despite a local recommendation i wasn't expecting much. However i had a simply divine steak. Very occasionally you eat a steak that reminds you what a really good piece of well cooked meat can taste like, and this was one of those occasions. The place was very busy for a Wednesday as...

Despite not booking a table and the Restaurant being busy the staff still managed to fit us in. All waiting staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Food was cooked exactly as required (medium rare) and very tasty.

The steak was decent quality, cooked really well but not the tastiest ever. Chips were poor, I'd expect much better from a steakhouse, or anywhere for that matter. Atmosphere was good and pretty relaxed. Overall not bad but not great either.

Have used this restaurant on my many trips to the Isle of Man and have always enjoyed both the surroundings and the food however on my latest visit I noticed a severe deterioration both in the quality and presentation of the food served and the cleanliness of the restaurant. The starters which we have had before included barbecued ribs which... More
