The food is good but no reservations are taken so you need to stand in the bar which is loud or wait outside. Lots of noise but the food is worth it.

Jak's is a favorite "go-to" restaurant for us and has been ever since it opened. The steaks are amazing, as is just about everything else we've eaten there. Most special is the small-town atmosphere where everyone is treated like a local. Be sure to plan to arrive early, as the wait for a table can be over an hour.

Jak's is a very consistent steak house. The meal and service is always good. The best plate is the Chop House Dip they server during lunch only.

One of the best steaks Ive ever had, and they consistently deliver the same amazing results repeatedly. Because of business travel needs I eat out at a lot of steakhouses throughout the country. No other steakhouse delivers the same consistent quality, and even to do so at this price point is amazing. I think I've eaten at Jaks over 100... More

This use to be our 'To Go" place in Issaquah but changes in managers, chefs, and owners put it into a downward slide that we don't they have yet to recover from. Their fillet mignon was the best ever but over the years the portions decreased, the prices increased, and the overall quality of the fillet they served went south!!!!... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Issaquah and really some of the best steaks I've had. Also enjoy this Jaks better than the others as well. Be patient though as getting in hear at dinner can be a pain and they don't take reservations. Try lunch or brunch, still the great food but easier to get a table.

This is great for a group or a date. The bar makes wonderful drinks and the steaks are always cooked to perfection. Ribeye melts in your mouth and the potato pancakes are a must!

I'll admit - we were lucky, we went to JaK's on the Saturday night the Seahawks were playng to get into the NFC playoffs & the place was empty at 6PM! I know this is virtually unheard of so we were very happy. It was a girls night and we all had very good meals - Bone-in-Ribeye, Steak Oscar (bacon... More
