“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Staff were attentive and only a short wait, despite the restaurant being full. The food was absolutely lovely and well priced especially for the standard of food served.

“Quick Service & Delicious Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I ate here with my boyfriend the other week after work. I had a cheeseburger and curly fries and he had a steak with chips. For a burger it was delicious and gone within seconds! My boyfriend also enjoyed his steak. The service was very quick despite there being a few tables in, and the waitress was lovely. I like how they have refurbished the upstairs too. We also had warm chocolate cake with cream for dessert which was very moist. We would definitely eat here again!

“poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Service was absolutely terrible, we reserved a table and were made to wait nearly an hour before being taken to it and then had to wait 45 minutes to get our first course. The servive was awful with most of the front of house staff having to hang around with nothing to do as waiting on the kitchen. Went a second time to give it a chance and the first time may have been a bad day, but was exactly the same, will never return.

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

We been at Jaks few weeks ago but we were really dissapointed. It was my girlfriend birthday so I decided to go there because we both love steaks. I have to say service there is really poor.Especially one waiter has no idea about customer service. He sat us in middle of the restaurant with all the parties around us. Because it was noisy we asked him if is any chance to move us somewhere else. He just answered that he has to check the book if is any more people coming. No one else arrived after us and there was more then 8 free tables where we could move.But he just decided to ignore our request. After that we were waiting about 20 min. to order food. I knew i go for T -bone steak as usual but waiter said there is no more. Same thing happend with dessert. Food here is very good anyway but we wont be back because of that waiter.
