Small restaurant in a small town. Good steaks, great service, small bar with very good selection of wine and spirits.

Even on a Monday night, it's always busy. They don't take reservations, so either line up early or take your chances! It was about a 20-30 minute wait around 6 or so. Busy and noisy evening at the bar, so it was loud. But the food was great. Real, fresh horseradish on the ribeye was surprising--most places have the sauce--and... More

Are here while in town for a wedding. The place was packed and it was obviously a popular spot. We were seated after a short wait and the server was prompt, friendly and made a few great suggestions. We ordered steak and the result was a moist, perfectly seared and seasoned specimen. The sides were large, but unlike expensive steak... More

We moved away from Issaquah many years ago, so it was a real treat to come back to JaK's Grill for lunch. The steaks were outstanding and the atmosphere is so very comforting. Thank you for being everything we remembered.

We had come here for our sons 24 birthday. As always we waited a long while for a table to be squeezed into a 4 people table with 5 oversized adults. Unacceptable. Even though they tried everything to recover, we could not afford to wait another 45 minutes for a table and left for some Mexican next door for a... More

Scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer was tasty but unfortunately was served lukewarm instead of sizzling hot off the grill. . Steak bits were also tasty but served again lukewarm. Old decor inside and a bit too dark. Best part of the meal was the baked potato with a delicious lemon sourcream chives sauce.

Whether you are looking for steak, fish, or vegetables. Jak's has it all. The steak is to die for, also the mashed potatoes are melt in your mouth good. If my meal doesn't come with mashed potatoes definitely a amazing add on. If you are looking for a quiet little place, this might night be the place for you. It... More

Great service, great prices and great steak! One of the most tender pieces of steak I've had in a long time! Filet mignon and top sirloin were wonderful! I highly recommend this place for adults. Atmosphere is a little noisy for kids.

Great spot for delicious food and plenty of it. Had a great server whose personality, timing and attention were spot on. Dinner salads were huge. Steaks were cooked well. Baked potatoes were monsters. Don't know how anyone gets dessert. My doggie-bag made a great 2nd dinner. The only reason Jak's is not a "5" is that the environment is really... More
