Very good ribeye steak

Flew into Billings late and went to Jakes based on a recommendation. I sat in the bar. I ordered the 16 oz ribeye, medium rare. It was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Also had the potato pancake which was good. Based on other reviews, I ordered mushrooms on the side without onions. It worked out... read more

Jakes downtown is a great place to go for a fine dining atmosphere or a casual bar evening. Fantastic food and great service!

Bar seating can get loud some times but the food is great. Fine dinning area is quit and food list is complete. Great steaks and some great chicken fried steak and mash potatoes.

We were traveling and stayed down the street. They were very busy but got us in pretty quick. It is a pricey restaurant. Most items were over $20. Full bar also. Staff very friendly and attentive. The old building is very interesting to look at too, the details and woodwork.

Great food. We were there on a week night with friends and apparently most of Billings was there that night as well. Very busy, and it appeared the kitchen couldn't keep up. It took so long for our desserts that our waiter gave them to us for free. The next I'm in Billings I'd probably go back, but I would... More

The food was average to good. We tried the Jake's steak and coconut shrimp and both ranked average to good. The blueberry basil margarita was really delicious however.

My husband and I love eating at Jakes both on the West End as well as downtown. The rustic yet classy feel of the restaurant are relaxing and enjoyable. The bar on the West end as much to noisy to enjoy a conversation, let alone a meal! The meat is the best I have had anywhere!
