Exellent food, good wine, and a very nice girl served us the through the evening. We have visited Jacobs both summer and winter for more than thirteen years and never been disappointed. A place we strongly recommend.

Expensive and fully packed place, but with a great location. A perfect place to sit down for a while when strolling the main street in the heat of the day. Service is a bit stressed but they do their best by spending minimal time on each customer.
Not a place for someone that can´t take what is given.

I like the design of the place too, even though it might beginning to be a bit dated.

We were 11 pax comming to the restaurant for diner 8 pm. The restaurant were already out of several courses and we could those between 3 different kind of steaks and a fish course. After 1 and a half hour the dishes came. The food was fine and the waiter was sorry and gave us some wine and coffee. But for that price level every think should be perfect - if the kitchen do not work you have to find some new chefs!!

Thank You very much for Your review.

You visited us in week 29, which is the most busy time all year.
In Your review You forget to mention that the waiters informed You about the waiting time before You ordered - hereby giving You the choice of staying or going somewhere else. We even offered You a discount for the waiting time, which You accepted.

I am sure You are qualified to teach med how to run a restaurant, please contact me again to give further advice - I am very interested.

Have just had lunch there and was really dissappointed. Hve been there serveral times previously but will consider finding another place for luch for the future.
I'm fully aware that the Skagen Festival is going on and that the kitchen is under high presure, but despite that the food was really terribe.
My partner had a Pariserbøf/ fried beef tartare where the meat was totally dry and not really worth eating. My chicken club sandwich had 2 VERY small chicken pieces which were absolutely tasteless and dry.
The waiters didn't pay any attention to us after the food had been served and we just went of after paying as it would lead us anywhere to complain....

Will definitely not recommend the place for its food/lunch - try somewhere else as there are may options during summer.

If visiting Skagen, it is definite you must visit Jakobs Cafe & Bar. It has the best location in town and throughout the summer has music -outdoors and indoors. Furthermore the service is great! A definite must visit in Skagen!
