I have been hearing about Jak's since I moved to Issaquah, so we decided to check it out last week. We had reservations for 6:00 p.m. The atmosphere is that of a typical Steak House from the 1960's-1970's; lots of woodwork, small booths with high wooden backs and dim lighting. My husband and I both ordered steaks with baked potatoes... More

This is a fairly ordinary restaurant/bar in downtown Issaquah. I would go again but there are many more choices now so they will have to step it up for five stars.

Our son was returning to school in New York and wanted to eat at Jak's before he left as he had heard so much about their lobster mac-cheese. We arrived right when the open and their famous happy hour immediately filled up the bar but we were there as a family so we sat in the family section which you... More

Gone to Jak's Grill many times. For work lunch, gals night out dinners and after work drinks and food. The place to get salmon in Issaquah is what you're told...but the truth is many things on the menu are done very well. The bar is great and has some lovely cocktails. The waitstaff varies in abilities but the owner or... More

The main meal meat was amazing. The chef needs to learn how to cook the side dishes the baked potato came out under coiked. The steamed broccoli was like mush. And the salads were not very inspired.

My wife and I have been coming here for years. Nice neighborly atmosphere. Unfortunately the food quality and consistency seems to be going down while the prices continue to go up. Good lunch spot.

We have been going to this institution for many years. As may have been already stated it is quite busy in the evenings and they will not seat you until your full party is there. we tend to love the burgers here's, so don't typically get the full meal. Sometimes this can feel a little awkward in the evening as... More

Lady at reception didn't want to sit us down because one person was missing! And with an attitude. Told her i was in a 3 hours time zone difference and needed to eat but she didn't care. The manager then came per my request and said its their policy. Not what i call a friendy restaurant.

I've been coming to Jak's for over 10 years and never had a bad experience. I've been for brunch, lunch, and dinner and have always enjoyed the food and service. I wish they took reservations, as tables fill up quickly which is a great sign for those that have never been that this is a great place to eat.

This is the place to go when you want a really good steak. We had a table of 4, two ordered rib eyes, one ordered the filet and the 4th a chicken dish. The steaks were flavorful. Rib eye was accompanied with a little fresh grated horseradish, a choice of baked potato or potato pancake and a mixed veg (broccoli,... More
