We have mixed feeling about Jak's at the Laurelhurst location. They have a great Happy Hour at the bar, a good selection of noshes and drinks, a very competent bartender during the week. Dinner is a mixed bag of good and mediocre. Good: the entrees. Mediocre: the salad and bread which is just fluff. In a city like Seattle with... More

Jak's has multiple locations in the Seattle area; but my review focuses on the one I go to most at 45th St. Jak's doesn't offer reservations, so plan your visit accordingly by arriving early at prime dinner hours. Also, because this location is closest to UW stadium and other sports venues, expect them to be very busy on game days.... More

Jak’s Grill Review Last night my wife and I were in the mood for a good steak, we picked Jak’s in West Seattle from on-line reviews. Man all those people must have eaten at a different restaurant. Dinner cost just over $200, which I was expecting to spend, but as far as taste I would have been better burning the... More

Enjoyed lunch at Jak's. They are known for steak. A few of my colleagues had the Prime Rib dip which they really enjoyed. I went with the salmon which was also very good. I also went with the potato pancakes which had some fish mixed in which were very good. Nice. would come here again

Three of us went to Jak's for dinner. We all had steaks and they were excellent. I liked the fact they had a petite size, which was plenty to eat. Dinners came with salad, bread, vegetables, and choice of potato. I had the potato pancakes, which were quite good. Service was excellent. Our booth was very comfortable. We had a... More

With its dark paneling, leather booths, and large bar, Jak’s is almost a throwback to earlier times. Although the menu highlights steaks, anything from the grill is perfectly portioned, seasoned, and prepared. Even the burger is fabulous. Your order includes salad, potato and vegetable, which is another throwback to earlier times. This is a high-end restaurant with prices to match,... More

My friend and I met for lunch here two weeks ago. The restaurant was quite crowded at 1:00. We were seated right away, but we waited a long time for even water. Our meal arrived about an hour later. It was perfectly prepared and we enjoyed our meals, but then, in an almost empty restaurant, and after our plates were... More

My friend and I went two weeks ago to Jak's Grill. She particularly likes the steak salad. The restaurant was busy and after an hour or so, we were actually served. But with virtually no one in the restaurant, it was impossible to get our bill until we left the table to visit the restroom. We returned the following week,... More

We had dinner here in Sep 2016. I had crabcakes, which were good but nothing amazing. Salad was big and also good but nothing utterly special.

I really enjoyed the halibut, bread and the wine. The restaurant was busy and I totally the service was excellent and attentive. As my meal progressed, the service became less attentive. It probably was the busy night and maybe they were understaffed. Anyway, I enjoyed my meal and would return if I were in the neighborhood.

Thank Rutman
