The food and service are always good, but the prices are on the high side. As others have stated, they don't take reservations, and they have a very small waiting area.

If you come to this restaurant, be aware that they do not take reservations. I went for the first time with a party of 4 on a Friday night, We arrived around 5pm and were seated close to 6pm. It was no problem - we had a drink in the bar and relaxed. Service was very good. The food was... More

Went there last night for the first time. Was around 7:30pm and had a 45 minute wait to get seated. Ordered a petite filet Medium Rare, and a Scallop appetizer. Overall, service was good! Had to almost shout to talk to my dinner companion to be heard. Sound meter showed a constant 85db noise level with peaks just over 90db.... More

I've eaten at JaK's many times, and if I'm in the mood to spend money on a fantastic steak, this is where I go. Unless I get distracted by an amazing special, I can always depend on the filet mignon. The ONLY problem I've ever had here is that it's so popular, it can sometimes be a wait for a... More

Usually a wait -- expensive but would be worth it if they could get food out of kitchen within a reasonable time, but most importantly, if they could cook it they way you order it. I love a mid-rare steak, and after 3 separate visits (one a year later) and ordering my steak rare -- med-well!! Sent back and brought... More

Excellent food and drink. The local "Go To" place. Sometimes music that is good too. If you wait to long its hard to get a seat. Great Martini's

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
