Jaks has a downstairs pub and an upstairs dining room available for lunch and dinner, and I went to both several times. The menu is large (but not too much so) and diverse, with traditional and nontraditional dishes. The lamb burger is fantastic, as are the beef burgers, and the fish and chips are great (of course). The Manx lamb... More

Went here TT week so the place was jumping, however didn't wait long for a table with their great wee techy system of electronic table buzzers which let you know when a table is free. Good choice on the menu, ordered the crispy lamb starter and fillet steak to follow - no complaints, excellently cooked and the staff were friendly... More

The location on the promenade is good and it has a lively atmosphere. The staff were very good, freindly and helpful. The decor is unremarkable, the beer is expensive and the food is Wetherspoon standard (which isn't bad but it isn't spectacular either). Went because of a high Tripadvisor rating but was disappointed.

Called in here a few times with my friends while staying in Douglas for the TT Races. It's a lively place and usually very busy.

The food & service in the restaurant are generally pretty high, but customers need to enter throught the bar downstairs as the retaurant is on the first floor. This can ruin an evening if there's a rowdy crowd of drinkers watching football, as there was on my last visit! We also had a problem getting up the stairs as someone... More

My first meal on the Island, not bad at all and enjoyed it very much, the lamb chops were fab and they had great selection of local and branded beers on Tap. Defo will return.

Not many places open for food outside of "normal" hours but this place does. Right on the Promenade it service fairly decent steaks and burgers. One of the better places in IoM

Visited this place by chance twice during the last race week of the TT. Once when it was very busy and a quieter evening to permit the comparison. We waited for 30 mins when it was packed and were given a buzzer when the table became free, great idea which enabled us to have a drink in the bar downstairs... More

Saw the reviews for Jaks on Trip Advisor so tried to book for TT week but was told no booking. Went along at around 7pm so expected a long wait, however we were told 30 minutes (not bad). Make sure you come up the front stairs through the bar, as that's where you put your name down. They give you... More
