We have visited Jaks a couple of times before when we have stayed on the island and have not been very impressed on those visits but as they had had a bit of a revamp we thought we would give it one more try. It was a mistake we wont make again, the only reason it got a 2 rating... More

Garlic bread for a starter would have been better at half the size and maybe two thirds the price. I couldn't finish it. The pork loin was two lumps of decent meat cooked plainly and unexciting. The large quantity of champ was underseasoned and lacking in flavour. The vegetables on the side were watery and overcooked. Too much quantity and... More

There are times when, as an alternative to fine dining, a well cooked steak and salad really tempts. When we arrived for lunch (12:55pm) there were a couple of folks downstairs in the bar, and two only (already eating) in the restaurant upstairs. We ordered a plate of garlic bread, drinks and two steaks; one a medium fillet and one... More

We went to Jack's on a Monday night. It was busy so the gave us a pager and we had a beer in the downstairs sports bar. We waited about 20 minutes and then had a table. The place is nothing fancy and it was packed with locals and tourists. I ordered the half slab of ribs and it was... More

We had an enjoyable visit to Jaks - a 'well done' steak arrives well done, not still pink in the middle or alternatively frazzled like some other restaurants. Ok, it's not the cheapest of places but no worse than some others. As for being noisy, well, it is a busy place! All in all I am happy to recommend this... More

We visited for my birthday meal on Sunday evening having booked in advance. It was very busy and I would definitely recommend booking a table. My 12 year old got stuck into a generous junior portion of ribs. The junior portion is great value at £8 for those who can't quite manage a full portion but are no longer suited... More

I have been to Jak's many times over the years and both the food and drink are decent. The food is served in plastic box-shaped plates which is different, and tastes really nice. The drinking scene personally creates the best atmosphere - me and my mates often meet in Jak's for drinks and we love it. Really good starting point... More

We ate upstairs in the steak house - entrance is round the corner from the sports bar on the sea front. Wide range of burgers and steaks available and well cooked. Not many places open out of season in Douglas on a Monday but it was full of locals and at least 4 birthday celebrations so it's held in some... More

Okay, as a fan of Outback Steakhouse in the US, Jak's onion doesn't quite come close to satisfying the craving, but it tries. Many times the onion isn't in stock though, so be warned. The steak is not bad but I'd love to take the chef to a few US joints to help them get the prep and seasoning done... More
