After spending the day driving through Vancouver and into Washington my husband wanted a steak dinner - a good steak dinner! I was hoping for at least one seafood item on the menu! We were both pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this gem. The atmosphere was that of the nicest restaurant in town with the added advantage of friendly instead... More

Recently my wife and I celebrated 11 years of marriage and we were so glad to celebrate it here. Our waiter Tony really was amazing and gave us the kind of service you desire when going to a restaurant. The food was amazing and while you might drop a little more coin here than other restaurants. I assure you you... More

We have been to this restaurant 2 or 3 times and the service and the food have been very good. It does not matter what you order, it is always good.

We usually go to a Steakhouse in Vegas for our Anniversary and have on occasion stayed local and eaten at John Howie, The Met, Jak's in Issaquah, etc. We decided to try Jack Niemanns because the menu items looked appealing. I ordered the special - 10oz New York and 8oz lobster for $29.99 and it was amazing. My wife has... More

The steaks were cooked as promised. The mashed potatoes are wonderful and the wine is reasonably priced. However our waiter was very confused over the discount coupon; first crediting it to our guests; then crediting it to our guests but with our charges before finally getting it right - and giving both of us the credit. So all is well... More

Visiting Seattle from So Cali , we drove to Vancouver and back on the same day. Once in the US side we were hungry for a nice steak dinner to carry us for the next 200 miles back to Seattle. Our first stop was Blaine right by the border. We drove in and at first sight we picked Black Forest... More

Four of us were looking for a good restaurant for an evening meal to mark the last day of our stay in this area of Washington State. Jack Niemann's Black Forest restaurant seemed to fit the bill. The atmosphere is quite quiet and suitable for good conversations. The welcome from the hostess was warm and we were shown to a... More

Since the original owner has passed, things have changed. Tonight we had dinner with friends. Our friends have ordered the rib eye in the past and have had it cut in half, then cooked rare and the other half medium. Tonight we were told that they could do it for $15. They are seniors and can't eat a full rib... More

This is basically a steak place and I'm not a steak guy - there are limited number of non beef items on the menu; went there just because it was convenient to where I was staying. Special was "surf and turf" - steak and lobster tail. Todd our excelent and knowledgeable waiter suggested to me to just have all lobster... More
