I recently enjoyed lunch at Jakers in Idaho Falls, Idaho, with a large group. Due to time constraints, we all decided to try Jakers salad bar! We were surprised and delighted with the wonderful selection of everything from crisp lettuces, fresh and thawed mouth-watering fruits including berries of various kinds, delicious soul-filling soups to small hot scones served in attractive dishes with honey-butter. I enjoyed being able to experience the impressive variety of varying textures, tastes, colors and even temperatures of the items offered at the salad bar and found all the hot items were hot and likewise the cold items were cold. I enjoyed the atmosphere at Jakers and the attention to detail I observed. From the moment we entered the front doors, I felt we were acknowledged as individuals and treated as valued customers. Our work group plans to gather again soon for an enjoyable lunch get-a-way at Jakers! 5 STARS!

Jakers is probably my favorite restaurant in Idaho Falls, ID. They have the best salad bar in town and if you like lobster bisque, you will absolutely love theirs, it really is the best.
The food is amazing and I can not wait to go back. I would eat the exact same thing all over again (but I won't because everything is so good, so I have to try it all), it was so good. Our appetizer was perfect, it was chicken and it tasted so great, was presented wonderfully and was hot and tasty. My entre tasted great, I ordered the garlic shrimp and steak. My steak was amazing, the garlic sauce really made it so good. I really liked the appetizer, the scones, and my entre.
The scones and butter are absolutely delightful, they taste like buttery yummy goodness. But I will warn you, after the scones and lobster bisque, you better save room because you will want to eat every last bit of your entre and of course one of their delicious desserts. Come hungry and you will not be disappointed!

The food is excellent, both in flavor and presentation. The portion sizes were generous for the price. They allow both small and large size portions which is an extra perk. Out beverages were kept full and the waitress made several passes by our table, making sure we were not out of bread. The staff have a delightful attitude and really seem to like where they work. Superb food, superb service and superb surroundings.

Our server greeted us promptly with a smile and told us about some of the specials, including the drinks. She took our drink orders right away. She was very friendly and asked us how old the children were who accompanied me. She showed us a photo of her child, which we thought was very sweet, warm, and friendly.

The salad bar was super fresh and delicious, as were the soup selections. The French Dip sandwich was very fresh, warm, and delicious. The scones were served piping hot, fresh, with delicious, fresh tasting honey-butter. The lobster bisque was creamy and very delicious and fresh tasting. The clam chowder was great as well. The gluten-free vegetable soup had a great flavor. The shrimp dish was delicious and fresh tasting. The "small" generously portioned French dip sandwich had fresh bread and moist, flavorful meat. It was very delicious. The children loved the fresh watermelon. Most of us ordered salad bars. One ordered a small French dip sandwich with lobster bisque. The orders were delivered very quickly, which was great when dining with small children. The server checked back several times to remove dishes and to ask us if we found everything in the salad bar. She was very thorough and we felt like we were completely taken care of. She brought scones and then refilled them twice.

The check was delivered promptly before we finished eating. Our server took care of it very quickly so that we didn't have to wait for it. We were offered coffee and dessert. The server thanked us for coming in again.

From being greeted as we entered Jakers, to observing cheerful Halloween decorations in the lobby, to the way our food was presented, to our overall dining experience, we were impressed at how Jakers staff all worked together to create top-notch dining memories!
I ordered Jakers Strawberry Chicken Salad and was delighted with the generous amount of fresh ripe strawberries served with it! I enjoyed the way the strawberries were displayed all around the fresh, crisp lettuce. My chicken was cooked perfectly and served hot which provided a wonderful variety of hot and cold foods with a wonderful assortment of textures and colors.
My guest ordered the Mushroom Burger which came with three very large onion rings served with fry sauce. He found the hamburger to be cooked perfectly and juicy and loved the generous amount of mushrooms and condiments served on it. Although he is looking forward to returning soon and enjoying other entrees, I think hell have a hard time not ordering another Mushroom Burger!

I have been to Jakers on many occasions over the years and live in Idaho Falls so go to many restaurants in the area. I can 100% say that Jakers is one of the higher class restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is sophisticated and the restaurant has a nice ambiance to it.
I am always impressed with the servers at Jakers. They actually take the time to get to know me and make me feel as if I am the most important customer at the restaurant. The servers also cater to some of the needs that I have. Especially in regards to how they prepare their blonde brownie dessert (the best dessert in Idaho Falls).
The food is always brought out quickly and I never feel rushed to leave the restaurant. I love their Tomato soup and feel it is the best of its kind. I also really enjoy the different salads that I have tried over the years. My favorite cut of meat is the Filet but I still have not tried them all and am looking forward to the challenge.

Jaker's is always your best bet if you are looking for a great meal along with excellent service. I have been to Jaker's several times and I have never been disappointed. We have enjoyed many of the different entrees and each time our meals were cooked to perfection. The salads are always fresh and crisp. The scones that they serve are my favorite and are served nice and warm. I have tried the salmon and they steak, both my favorites, and it keeps me coming back.

Another great thing about Jaker's is the service. This is not your average experience. Each time we have been there the employees have gone out of their way to make sure we have an enjoyable experience. Overall, without a doubt, this is my top pick when I am hungry for a great meal and friendly service.

Jakers was having a "Crab-fest" and we decided to join in the fun! Due to a physical ailment, cracking the crab shells was difficult for my wife. Without telling our Server why, we asked if there was any way some of the Crab could be shelled for her. Not expecting much because it was busy, my wife's eyes nearly popped out of her head to see that the chef actually took the time to completely shell her order! She was nearly brought to tears when the Manager came out to ensure our order was up to expectation.

Over the years Jakers has become our restaurant of choice primarily because of the food. Their Prime Rib will absolutely leave you speech-less. But tonight, Jakers also became our Restaurant of choice because of the service. From the Server to the Chef and back to the Manager, we were treated like family.

Our compliments to the Chef for taking the time to crack Crab shells for my wife. Our appreciation to the staff who coordinated this effort. The Jakers team went above and beyond to ensure this dining experience will never be forgotten!

I recently enjoyed lunch at Jakers in Idaho Falls, Idaho. From the moment my friend and I walked in the door we felt as though we had entered into a magical world where we were treated not only as valued customers but recognized as individuals too. All employees we encountered made direct eye contact, engaged us in friendly yet professional conversation and focused on us and our dining needs.
Our waitress answered all our menu questions in an informed, comfortable manner. I enjoyed the combination of fresh romaine, red onion, candied pecans, red bell peppers and strawberries along with the chicken (which Id asked to have grilled) served with a side of poppy seed dressing the Strawberry Chicken Salad. I received a generous portion which left me feeling full yet comfortable. I ordered a glass of cold water with a lemon and my waitress kept my cup filled. Fresh hot round-shaped scones served in an attractive dish were served with honey butter.

Overall, I found Jakers to be a perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal in a warm, welcoming atmosphere, all at an affordable price.

The restaurant is immaculate and well cared for, inside and out.
The flaky scones were fresh and served piping hot. We liked that the honey-butter (also delicious) melted on the scones. The garden salad was fresh, served with a delicious ranch dressing. Her Prime Rib Melt was delicious, served medium to medium-rare, which was appreciated because it was so tender and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The green peppers were a delicious accompaniment to the meat.

My shrimp tacos were delicious, served with large, fresh shrimp, fresh vegetables, delicious creamy melted cheese, and delicious homemade, flaky tortillas. These meals were both impressive. My dining partner had a salad with her sandwich. We enjoyed the warm scones, which were served with honey-butter. The service was very quick, efficient and friendly. It was about $25 for the two of us.

Our server had a very polished, professional demeanor and had a very kind attitude and voice. We liked him immediately. He smiled and greeted us cheerfully and warmly.

I ordered shrimp tacos, good choice! They were made with quality ingredients. The tortillas were homemade, fresh and delicious. The very large shrimp was very fresh, cooked perfectly, and very delicious. The vegetables and cheese served with it were fresh and yummy. The rice, served as an accompaniment, was also tasty and fresh tasting.

The salad bar looked very fresh and gourmet. All of the salads that my friend tried were very fresh and delicious. The homemade croutons were fresh, delicious and very tasty. The lobster bisque was fresh, delicious, creamy, and had lots of meat. There were several other types of soup in the salad bar. The scones were very fresh, flaky, delicious and very light. The honey-butter was also creamy, well mixed, and delicious. I don't see how any of these food items that we ate could be any better. The check was about $25 for the two of us.

I went to lunch recently with my friends at Jakers. It's an attractive restaurant, very classy, yet homey. We arrived early and without a reservation, though reservations are recommended. We did not have to wait. The cheerful hostess was very accommodating and seated us immediately.

The server, also very cheerful, immediately greeted us. Two of us ordered salad bars. The other ordered a sandwich with French onion soup. The salad bars were so fresh and delicious, with many items to choose from. I especially liked the artichoke hearts, fresh strawberries, fresh pineapple, and a Greek salad. Jakers had removed the stems on the strawberries and all of the parts of the pineapple that you do not eat (unlike most other restaurants), just one example of the professionalism of Jakers. Another example is how very well the servers are trained. We never had to ask for anything. Refills were offered before they were needed. They serve very delicious, complimentary scones. We also had a very yummy cheesecake for dessert. It was a very large slice and easily satisfied the three of us. We spent about $35 for three meals and dessert.

The service was great, even though we went at a busy time.

The food was outstanding. I had the salad bar, which was oh, so fresh and delicious. It had fresh strawberries, hulled, freshly cut and trimmed pineapple, several fresh and tasty salads, and the best lobster bisque soup that I had ever eaten. There were other soups, too. My dining partner had Turkey Avocado Wrap with a spinach salad. They were large portions. All of the food was impressive.

Jakers has a reputation for being one of the top restaurants in Idaho Falls. I've been here half a dozen times over the years and the quality seems to go down every time. We ate there recently and the first thing I noticed was the laziness and demeanor of the hostess. We walked in and were greeted but the hostess' back was turned towards us. I wasn't sure if she had greeted us or if the greeting had come from within the restaurant from other patrons greeting each other. When she finally turned around (ten seconds later), and greeted us again, I realized it was her that had greeted us the first time. I think it's very poor form to greet a group of people with your back turned toward them, but in fairness, I don't think it takes away too much from the dining experience. Our server was nice enough and fairly attentive so no problems there. But the food was very disappointing. Jakers used to have a wonderful warm spinach salad but it looks like they've changed their menu since I last dined there. As an appetizer, we ordered the calamari. I try to order calamari at every restaurant I go to since I enjoy it so much. Honestly, this was the worst calamari that I have ever tasted. It was too greasy, way too salty, and the chunks were too big. I also ordered the french onion soup. In the past, this soup had been a favorite of mine. Most recently, however, I felt the soup was too salty. I ordered the prime rib with asparagus as a side. The asparagus was over-cooked and soggy. The prime rib was not cooked evenly. Half of the cut was medium (what I had ordered), and the other half was medium-well. I would expect my meat to be cooked evenly for the price I paid ($30). I don't know what has happened over the years. Jakers used to be a great option, but I feel like the quality of cooks has gone down. Because of that, I don't feel the price justifies the food. In spite of my experience, my family still loves Jakers. Personally, I think The Cellar is a better dining experience. The atmosphere and quality is by far superior there.

My coworker took me there for my birthday, and it was fabulous! The best french onion soup I have been able to find in Idaho Falls, hands down. Their menu has a wide selection of entres, and my coworker said that everything she has ever had there is positively scrumptious! The atmosphere is intriguing, it feels rather spacious, but the fans and lights they have add an almost rustic feel to it. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Poor service. Waited forever. The table next to us received free drink cards from their server. Our older waitress was hardly seen. Took our order and only saw her again when she brought the ticket. Never did talk to us. Watery drinks.

The steelhead was not cooked and VERY fishy.

Not worth the sky-high price we paid.

Restaurant was filthy. Try another spot.

I have been frequenting Jaker's since the first restaurant opened in Pocatello in the early 1970's. Jake's/Jaker's has always been a step above the rest. Great care is taken in menu development and preparation of food and drink. Menu selections have changed through the years, but Jaker's has changed with the times and not become stagnant. Our dining experience is always great - we are never disappointed with quality of entrees. I can honestly say that Jaker's serves the best calimari of any restaurant I've dined at.

The servers - what can I say? They need to remember we are their paycheck and treat all customers equal. I've found that service is better and waitresses are more attentive if I'm accompanied by a male friend or when I'm dining with business associates. I think they fail to realize there are many professional women in the Idaho Falls area. Their tips probably suffer for it, as I gladly tip 20% for great service with a smile. I've watched waitresses at Jaker's be very attentive to men and barely acknowledge my prescence. Shame on them.

The food and drinks are fabulous. A+ dining experience we're luck to have!

I have been frequenting Jaker's since the first restaurant opened in Pocatello in the early 1970's. Jake's/Jaker's has always been a step above the rest. Great care is taken in menu development and preparation of food and drink. Menu selections have changed through the years, but Jaker's has changed with the times and not become stagnant. Our dining experience is always great - we are never disappointed with quality of entrees. I can honestly say that Jaker's serves the best calimari of any restaurant I've dined at.

PROS: Food, Desserts, Experienced Servers
CONS: A little spendy
