Open on Sundays

Not very much open in a Sunday except Jake bar, good food, pleasant staff and reasonable prices, what more do you need.

We visited the IOM for the weekend and liked it here so much we had our evening meal here both nights. Give it a go you won't be disappointed.

Food here was very good, we called in absolutely starving, It was 2 minutes to 5 and unknown to us they stopped serving bar meals at 5, but they served us no problem. Great place for night life too.

My husband booked a table for the two of us here recently, and I'm sorry to say that we won't be rushing back very soon. We have eaten at Jaks for many years, loving the well cooked beautiful steaks because they are some of the best on the island. However this last visit was a big disappointment. We booked a... More

Initial lunchtime visit less busy but food, service and atmosphere was great even then. Hit busy period on second visit when the staff all worked well as a team and standard of food plus service did not drop. Good cross section of diners of all ages, everyone seemed happy and relaxed with their meals, drinks etc.

Finding a good restaurant in Douglas is a challenge.. This one comes highly recommended so we gave it a go. Portions, very good, quality, indifferent. My Rib Eye didn't look at all like a Rib Eye, more like Sirloin, and request for rare realised a medium rare steak. I pointed out to the waitress that it was mainly brown, with... More

They found us a seat on Father's day when they were absolutely buzzing and could have easily said no. Best home made French Onion Soup I've had in years

If its a great steak you want then there is no place better than Jaks. The pub underneath can be off putting when you enter the premises as they play loud music, but you go upstairs to eat where you don't hear a thing but your steak sizzling in the kitchen.
