If you want a decent steak or fish and chips you wont find any better. Since the revamp, my visit and everything about the food is still very good just the surroundings and ambience have improved

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is a restaurant well worth visiting. Although we arrived after 5 pm when the restaurant is only open upstairs, they said that if we didn't mind sitting and eating in the bar area they could serve us from there. We placed our order and the staff brought us our meals, the steaks were cooked to perfection and the steak and ale pie!!! well you couldn't have asked for better if I was asked to give this a rating out of 10 it would have to be 11. Definitely a place to visit more than once.

“If I lived here I'd be a regular visitor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is probably the liveliest bar in Douglas. The bar is downstairs, there's plenty of large screens. It gets busy at weekends when they have some entertainment on. Up stairs is the restaurant serving bistro style food majoring on superb steaks cooked perfectly how you want them. Serving six hungry golfers is a challenge but we had to come back here a second time the food is so good. Service is good too and the bill didn't come as a shock. Well done Jaks bar!

“Adopt some courtesy!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Have eaten here twice in the last week. Food was fine on first visit so it was handy to eat there again later in week though we where disappointed with service.. On arrival we where greeted by an elderly Irish chap who looked us up and down so blatantly I was personally taken back by his rudeness. It was as if you to wear a certain pair of shoes to eat a burger there!! Staff need trained not to be so rude to customers and that fashion is not 'shiny shoes and cleats!' .. I will try elsewhere next visit and not recommend to friends I'm afraid..

“The best restaurant on the isle of man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I went to this restaurant twice whilst I was here once at night for dinner and on the Sunday lunchtime for the new carvery. we had a 45 minute wait for a table as it was very busy but it was worth it. The restaurant has moved from downstairs to up, to make more space. All of the staff are very friendly and attentive. The second visit wasn't as busy for the carvery, which was better. Both of the meals were good value for money. The quantity and quality is outstanding compared to the expensive rubbish was is served at the palace hotel restaurant where we stayed.
