Was in the area for business and picked Jak's arbitrarily without doing any research. We were all pleasantly surprised by a top class experience from start to finish. Great service accompanied by wonderful food is what we encountered. The menu and follow through on it rival anywhere I've been to in Washington State. I intend to return soon!

They do not take reservations. Don't even attempt to eat here on a weekend evening. We waited an hour and 10 minutes (after being told it would be 45mins). Once seated, we waited another 30 minutes just to get some bread and an appetizer. Then our salads and entrees came out all at once. We waited 20 minutes for the... More

Jak's is the best in town. We've been several times for dinner, and once for brunch. Dinner is always good - I had a special stuffed pork chop here that was amazing. The steaks are always great. Breakfast was pretty good as well. I had their Jak Benny, which is eggs benedict with steak. It's rich, tasty, and filling! Note... More

Small restaurant in a small town. Good steaks, great service, small bar with very good selection of wine and spirits.

Even on a Monday night, it's always busy. They don't take reservations, so either line up early or take your chances! It was about a 20-30 minute wait around 6 or so. Busy and noisy evening at the bar, so it was loud. But the food was great. Real, fresh horseradish on the ribeye was surprising--most places have the sauce--and... More

Are here while in town for a wedding. The place was packed and it was obviously a popular spot. We were seated after a short wait and the server was prompt, friendly and made a few great suggestions. We ordered steak and the result was a moist, perfectly seared and seasoned specimen. The sides were large, but unlike expensive steak... More

We moved away from Issaquah many years ago, so it was a real treat to come back to JaK's Grill for lunch. The steaks were outstanding and the atmosphere is so very comforting. Thank you for being everything we remembered.
