West End Location is Superior

Very good steaks - Downtown Bar is Very Loud! Service is Variable. West End Location has better atmosphere and service.

César Salad was just outer leaves, bitter, bland and forgettable. Halibut was a mere morsel, maybe 4-5oz for $30, total disconnect on value. Manager came to the table, but had no interest in what I had to say nor did he show any effort to improve the situation. In the end we win, we don't come back.

Jake's is always a reliable spot after flying in or driving thru. Beef is like what you would have if you could grow your own.

My son has been talking about Jake's for forever, so I went there for dinner with a friend. Did I mention that my son has excellent taste in women and steak? Well, he sure knows how to pick 'em. I had a nicely prepared and seasoned baseball sirloin served with a crispy potato cake. This meal hit the spot, the... More

Went here for lunch and I'm still dreaming of the beer cheese soup and the uptown burger. Next time I'm in Billings I will go out of my way to get back here. Great classy pub atmosphere as well

We love the new (second/west end) Jakes! Downtown was always good but parking was an issue. The staff is incredible and food is amazing! Our waitress went out of her way to help us find the perfect wine for our dinner. Favorite food-the crab dip appetizer!

We hosted a group lunch in 17 April for over 20 people. The staff arranged for a very cool private room that has classic western touches and lots of glass to look out on the street as well as glass to see inside the restaurant. The staff was great and they did a good job coordinating with us on meals... More

We went there with friends and had some of the best steaks I had ever tasted. Their pecan salad and steak salad are fantastic. The tastes are incredible. The steaks just melted in your mouth. We tried the butter cake (which I recommend sharing as it is huge) and the toll house pie. Both were absolutely delicious!! The service here... More

Stopped for dinner during an overnight visit. Place was busy. Ordered steak and veggies. Steak was great. Broccolini was a bit soft. Ordered a Glenlivet 12 neat, but it tasted a bit off. Overall, if I were in Billings again, I would eat here again.

Working in the near vicinity of the downtown Jake's location I have had opportunity to eat here several times for lunch recently. The food has been consistently good and for lunch is surprisingly fast. Definitely good for adults although kids might not find much on the menu that appeals to them.
