The food although expensive came in large portions and tasted amazing. The servers were kind and involved. The atmosphere of the place is fun. Great for good conversations. I loved their grilled chicken. Can't wait to try to skewers.

Stopped by Jak's Grill near Seattle Children's hospital for dinner and had a very nice dinner. The Copper River Salmon was outstanding, good garlic mashed potatoes. The staff was wonderful and friendly. Nice wine and beer selection as well.

Overall excellent experience: meal, atmosphere, service, mid-price. Pork Medallion dish was outstanding: meat had a great zest (without being too salty, as is often the case in restaurant dining where "flavor = lots of salt"), the vegetables were grilled "to perfection" to use a warranted cliché. Portions were quite generous, enabling a doggie-bag take home lunch the next day. The... More

Jak's has a good location close to University and ample parking. My rib steak was done perfectly and had good flavor. It's a good value because it comes with sides. Most steakhouses have everything al a carte. My dining companion had the sirloin and it was good too.

A really great brunch. We love coming here for dinner celebrating a special occasion but they also have a great local, neighborhood feel. All locations are great. We decided to try out the brunch, and if you come during their brunch happy hour, it's not packed - yay! They don't take reservations so it's always a gamble but they have... More

We raise money and bring toys to Seattle Children's Hospital three times a year. When we deliver them we have gone to eat at Jak's Grill. Last night two of the six of us got there on time and the wait staff would not seat them until we all showed up. The place was 20% filled. So then they asked... More

We came here for our anniversary dinner because my husband wanted a nice steak. We were seated on the East wall, cozy I suppose but they wooden seat benches were really uncomfortable & my back was hurting by the time we left from sitting there. The other customers around us were so close and SO loud so it made it... More

We decided to skip the crowds and celebrate Mother's Day a week early with breakfast at Jak's. It's a typical grill outfit, so I wouldn't say it looked exactly bright and cheerful, but secondly very functional and clean. The breakfast menu is of course heavy on eggs, and I did not see any suggestion about having an egg-white omelet or... More

I would NOT go back to this restaurant, given the choice. Sure, I don't eat steak, but I've been to other steak restaurants where this isn't a problem. Here I was completely unimpressed. We were a party of 7. 6 of us eating steak. The steak eaters enjoyed themselves. I did not. I ordered the grilled chicken, which was listed... More

I was very disappointed with the indifferent service. The older gentleman at the table next to me expressed his displeasure to his server, too. I selected the clam chowder as the side dish for my steak sandwich and I was unhappy that no mention of bacon was included on the menu. I brought it to the server's attention and he... More
