Good steak

Steak and homemade mashed potatoes were good, fair value. Staff friendly and helpful. Fried pickles best we have had!

Nice restaurant, bit over priced but the ribs were delicious and literally fell clean off the bone, although my mother's meal was cold and when we told them they took the whole cost of her meal off and very apologetic. Would recommend to anyone who likes bbq. They also have chicken, steaks, seafood, sandwiches, and burgers. Sure to find something... More

Not far from our hotel. Our server, Silver, was excellent. She was friendly and very attentive. Our steaks were excellent and cooked over a mesquite grill, which gave them a good flavor. The atmosphere was a western theme with a small train going around the top of the ceiling. It was quite charming. Highly recommend.

Came here because of an invitation with a co worker, but it wasn't what I expected, I think it was over rated... I had kabobs that came out rather luke warm than hot and it was only one kabob with more veggies than meat! (3 pcs of small meat ) for what the price was I think I should have... More

This place is just a bit overpriced. $14 for an 8 oz. sirloin with two sides, but the steak was not cooked well at all. I ordered it medium and it was very very chewy. I am glad they will give out beans with bread though, otherwise I would have not enjoyed eating here at all. The fried okra was... More

We found this restaurant by accident and were glad we tried it. A family-run establisment offering gearty comfort food in a fun cowboy memorabilia setting.

This place is a bit deceiving. Authentic looking western decor, and pleasant wait staff.. BUT, the service is well below average, the food quality is not even restaurant standard. Seriously, tough, grisly steak, bland chewy chicken and lame fries. I would suggest Western Sizzlin over this place. The food quality may be better and the selection will be much better,... More

Big Jake's was close to our hotel and came highly recommended. As finicky eaters, both my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. The catfish, while a wee bit fishy tasting as expected, was well-prepared and the chicken-fried steak was tender and well seasoned. Our waitress willingly put up with my dry sense of whit and actually fired back rather quickly.... More
