Have been in area for most of my life and this Steak House was a place where the extended family would go to celebrate in lifes many twists and turns. For the past few years have tried to carry on the tradition, but it must be said that this steak house is not worth the time or money. The problem is with the quality of the meat, side dishes and above all the condenscending staff. It is time to quit riding on the attributes of yesteryear reviews, and care about the present . Go back to the mission that was yours when first staring out. We will keep good memories of this establishment, but no longer will be making them at Jess and Jim;s
Since I've moved to OP, KS I've been told several times that I have to try Jess & Jims. So my husband, my daughter, and I finally tried it. I just thought it was an average steak. Nothing special. The service was okay, but again, nothing special. I would maybe try it again, maybe the time we went the service and food were just a fluke. And least if I try it again, my expectations will be low.
The best steaks in the kansas city area, I always have the butterfly strip 28 oz.I would also say plaza III has the second best and Hereford in Leawood third and dont go to the new steak place in Leawood called Sullivans very nice place but very over priced for the quality of steak,side orders not much better.

A family member from St Louis told me they had the best steak in there life here. So when we had a opportunity to be in K C, we had to try it.
A little out of the way for where we were staying.
Steaks were very good, not out best ever...
they are not grilled with hash marks but put on the grill so the carmelization is over the entire side. I suppose it keeps in juices, but makes the meat more crusty than we are used to.
The waitress brought my husband the wrong steak and did not notice it till he told her. She did not appear to be brand new there, I would think they would check thier orde before bringing it out, good wait staff always do.
so they cooked him another fairly promptly, but I was 1/2 done by time he got his.
Salad was pretty generic, but ok.
Seems like there's too many good places to eat to go back, I assume KC has some truely great steak places, just not this one.
At first, the resturant looked drab and dim with little decor, just little cows and wooden tables and chairs. For the price, you get plenty of food, including homemade garlic toast and pickled beets with your meal. I had a house special, an 8 oz filet and shrimp scampi, which was reccommended by my server. The scampi sauce was rich and garlicy far beyond what I've had elsewhere. My date tried the Ribeye which was cooked to perfection, and though it looked a little fatty for my taste, he said it was just right, favorful and tender. We shared warm apple pie for dessert which was served with ice cream. overall, i was pleased with the experience.

We were new to the KC area, and asked where to go for steak. We were told Jess & Jim's was a KC tradition, so we went there, expecting a treat. We were completely underwhelmed! I think this place may have been great in the distant past, but I think now they must be living off their reputation. Otherwise, I can't understand why anyone would give this place such high ratings. The steak was not special at all, and we paid way, way too much. We won't be going back.

If you are in the area its a fun place to try.Off the beaten path a bit. A good place to eat and relax.A very down home style to the place. I was excited about the steak.It was definitely tender and flavorful, but my at least a quarter of the steak was fat. I spent some time trimming it. The baked potatoes are definitely one of a kind, but overkill for me with cheese, bacon and a ridiculous amount of butter piled on. The prices range 20-40$ per steak so it is definitely not cheap.
