Gem on 45th

Great place to eat and out of the main bustle of the U district. Wonderful food: huge breakfasts and great BBQ. Plenty of wine and beer choices. Attentive, helpful staff and nice setting. Great for meeting with family or friends.

We had six in our party, and despite being in a booth, we were not crowded. We were there for a friends get-together brunch. Loved the Baja scramble, which had chorizo, avocado, cheese, fresh pico de gallo - so delish! The potatoes were wonderful as well.

We to the family to Jak's on a Friday night. It was earlier than we really wanted to eat but Jak's doesn't take reservations. No trouble getting a table at 5:45pm. Prompt, friendly service is a Jak's staple and I have never been let down. We started with calamari steak strips deep fried with three dipping sauces. Good, not greasy.... More

Ok so I know that Jak's is known for their steaks and I have gotten crap from almost everyone about ordering fish at a steak house. I have to say that the Panko Crusted Halibut was excellent and their deserts are incredible as well.

We took the family to Jak's Grill on a rainy weeknight when visiting Seattle. We had to wait a bit but the staff took special care that our 3 year old was entertained while the adults started to "relax" and enjoy the evening. Each of our meals were special, well prepared and presented. The wait staff were very attentive but... More

There is nothing bad served at Jak's! When you want to return to the same restaurant on a short vaction in a city like Seattle with many restaurants to choose from you know it's good! During the week there is always a line beginning at 4:00pm to get into the bar for Happy Hour because the food and drinks are... More

This place really has the feel that you would expect from a bar and grill. The bartenders are knowledgeable,have a good stock and make some creative drinks. Wine list as decent as is the beef and accompanying sauces and sides. Reasonable priced tag as well. I'd recommend this place.

Jak's is a great place to eat. We go quite often with our kids that live in the area and absolutely everything we have had to eat has been delicious! And the staff is very helpful and friendly.

Summary - It's a steak joint. It's o.k. but nothing special. The prices aren't high for steak but are high for the value received. The server is good and the noise level can quickly get to ear splitting. Food - This is a steak house in the 1950's style. We went recently and I had the Filet mignon. The good... More

There are a lot of steak houses around but Jak's has got to be one of the top places to visit. There are three locations and I have tried but one so far. Besides GREAT steaks their wait staff are among the best. Full bar and good selection of IPA's ( my personal favorite ). I have tried other items... More
