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

We have eaten at Jak's many times over the years. We especially like the pork chops. When they're good, they're very, very good. Sometimes, though, they're not. The service is OK.

Wow....customer experience FAIL...Quarterly a set of friends (3) get together for drinks and maybe a few appetizers and we have traditionally met at Jak's. Yesterday we had an unreal experience where the hostess refused to seat us unless we ordered dinner. It was 5pm and they just opened. Their bar area is terrible and we only wanted to have a... More

Thank goodness for Jak's! After spending several weeks running our son down to the University of Washington for orientation, new Husky activities and marching band camp, dealing with traffic on Montlake, quick eats and exorbitant parking rates, it was nice to find a pleasant sit-down restaurant with free parking conveniently located to the U. Even better, it was wonderful finding... More

Jak's has great food and awesome service. I was alone and the server didn't hover or make me feel otherwise uncomfortable. They put me in a nice, out-of-the-way spot (not near the kitchen or server station), so I wasn't uncomfortable being alone. The crab stuffed halibut is so good, and a generous size. The decor is a little cigar loungish,... More
