Laid Back Atmosphere!

While in Montana on business, someone recommended this restaurant for dinner. Because I was staying at a nearby hotel, I decided to try it. I ordered a salad and added steak -- it hit the spot. The salad had all of the fixin’s and the steak was juicy and tender. I enjoyed it so much that I went... read more

Great atmosphere and service. A bit spendy, but it wouldn't be out of line if the food was as classy as the decor. Unfortunately the food was just blah. The bread wasn't warm/fresh, and the "Amazing Seafood Linguine" was awful. Bland cream based sauce that tastes like flour and cream. Nothing rich about it. I'd be upset if I was... More

I had steak and my daughters had salmon and fajitas. Everything was cooked to perfection and utterly delicious!

Everything is top notch here. Three in. My group, we had New York steak, prime rib and the halibut. Our side dishes was steam mussels and crab dip. We never sat waiting for drinks refills, the table was always cleared fast. The server attention to our table was great. The building details are outstanding. Will eat here again.

Nice dinner place with large bar. The Beer cheese soup is great for lunch and the shrimp scampi is my favorite although their steaks are great too.

Bob wanted a good steak while traveling through Montana and we let the waitress know straight away that we were there for steak. Since it was lunchtime she promptly brought the dinner menu, and had the kitchen split an entrée for us. The New York strip was well prepared, our broccoli side was barely cooked (which is exactly the way... More

Located in what had been the General Custer Hotel built in the late 1800's, the ambiance is what I imagine when I think of an Old West Steakhouse. Lots of wood, dark red carpets, heavy comfortable chairs and a lively atmosphere. The waiter shared plenty of the building's history and his service was excellent. I typically drink Manhattans and theirs... More

I love their pan fried shrimp but they have gotten small over the years. The service is usually pretty good but can be slow. Generally pretty quiet.

We just landed at the airport and were hungry. still had another 2 hour drive and fast food was not what we wanted. We had been here before and knew what to expect. Sat at the bar and service was quick. Food was real tasty and just what the doctor ordered. We fly into Billings more than a few times... More

7 of us ate at Jake's - it may possibly be the best meal I've ever eaten. Fabulous food and excellent libations as well as a superb waitstaff. If you're in Billings, eat at Jake's.
