- If the measure of a steakhouse can be taken from one item, that item is the porterhouse. And while it won't suprise you that the porterhouse at JaK's Grill is a lot cheaper than the one served at Metropolitan Grill, it might suprise you that it's a lot better. Hence, not only does JaK's offer the best bang for one's carnivorous buck in town, it offers the best carne, period... JaK's isn't as regal or doting as the Met, but its more laid back approach better suits Seattle.
Seattle Weekly "Best of" Steakhouse Winner 2011
- It's all about the high-quality beef that's seared to mouthwatering perfection at this steakhouse trio where service is fast and pleasant and the rooms noisy; the combination of the "bang-for-the buck" appeal (your pocketbook doesn't get a la carte-d to death) and no reservations suggests you should go early or really late or expect a wait akin to an endurance event.
- With tremendous portions of superb beef and excellent prices, this West Seattle cow palace competes with the big names. The quality of the food is marvelous not to mention the great no-attitude service and atmosphere. No wonder regulars who relish the food (even the hamburger is incredible) willingly endure a no reservations policy that means a long wait unless you get there early.
- Famous for it's half-pounders, JaK's seasons its burgers with onions, garlic, black pepper and a mixture of soy and Worcestershire sauces, red-chili paste and brown mustard while they grill.
