This business has burned down and closed; winter of 2016. Try going across the street to Colton's. The restaurant that put Jake's on the skids.
Food was great and the service itself was excellent. I think the manager and the bartender broke one huge rule though. Never talk about fellow employees in front of customers. I assume it was the manager, blonde female in her 30s dressed in black... Was way too comfortable talking about the staff to the bartender, who was talking about how his fellow bartenders didn't know how to make drinks. The manager (I assume) was talking crap about the other waitresses and seemed to instigate a lot of problems. However, the drinks and food were great and the bartender was personally very friendly to me.
worst restaurant in van buren...my steak came and it was gray looking like it was freezer burnt then thrown in the microwave..i sent it back the next one was the same and i sent it back again..then just gave up..just horrible..will never go back..and honestly dont know how they stay in business...
We finally got a chance to try the new Colton's Steak House. It did not dissapoint. Food was good, service was outstanding. After 5PM be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Our wait was short, about 15 minutes. Maybe call for a reservation??
This is the 2nd time I went here both times was a waste of money. Service was horrible and food want much better. This is the first time I have done this but I don't won't anybody else to waste thier money. I spent 60 dollars for something that wasn't worth 10 dollars. I would not suggest this place to anybody.
Its an OK place if you want a beer if you'd like to eat something that taste good don't order the chicken they apparently don't know how to make chicken of course in the event that you happen to like chicken the taste like it was may be frozen and then boiled and then flavor put on it possibly fried in a pan for a few minutes if that's your idea of something that tastes good assuming the chicken is rough and dry then you may like it but staff seems nice unfortunately where was in the cook room they're cooking has never tasted their own cooking so I think they're in a lot of trouble because Colton's steakhouse is opening up across the street and I think that they are a corporation that has chefs I actually know how to cook and I don't think that anyone's going to want to go back there to Jakes if they have tasted what chicken is supposed to taste like at Colton's
Good food and good staff. No complaints.
We ate off the buffet on Oct. 5. and the food was NASTY! Since then my husband has had an upset stomach and now I am nauseated and upset stomach. Another member of our party has an upset stomach. We had two Western Sizzlin's but they closed. We ate there a lot so we know how GREAT your food can be. Why did this one's food taste so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not one to complain, but when other restaurants are offering a free dinner to veterans on veterans day....Western Sizzlin does not. I am sorry but if a business does not feel it important enough to thank veterans for their service by offering a free meal on the day that is meant to thank them for their service, then I do not feel that they warrant my business and I will be letting my fellow veterans of this as well. Way to go Western Sizzlin, you just went a long way down in my estimation.
