Some of the best steaks you will ever eat!

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... read 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.

In town for business and decided to try Jake's across the street. I got the shrimp which was butterflied and pan-fried. It was amazing. My colleagues each got a steak and each said their particular steak was delicious. The waiter was courteous and prompt. The bar next to the dining area had some patrons in it but was not too...

I'm literally at Jakes right now. Waited forever and still messed up my meal. But that's why they get one star. There is a group of extremely unprofessional employees here that are off shift that are so loud and obnoxious. I'm appealed at their loud and drunk comments to the other staff. Yelling at the waitresses about their weight, their... More

I used to like eating at Jake's. They had unique dishes (e.g., salads and fish tacos) that were fairly healthy and tasty. Over the past year, the taste and quality of their food has totally gone by the wayside. The food takes longer to receive and recently I received half-cooked salmon atop a salad. After I pointed out the salmon... More

The sirloin and grilled shrimp special was very good. It was the first time I had gazpacho. It was excellent! Some of the better rice pilaf I have had.

Very popular place. Very good food; great wine list. I bit slow and expensive. When the restaurant is full it is quite noisy.

They have great food and drinks and we usually eat in the bar area but they have a dining area as well. Its always busy and the food... More

We had 12 people and everyone had good meals from steaks to linguine. Service was good . Atmosphere is a fun place to get together and hang out. Thought the prices were a good value.
