Being a Blaine resident, I get taken to the Black Forest occasionally . Frankly , I don't understand what all the fuss is about. From visit to visit , the food has been very average. On my last visit , the service hit a new low. Our server was totally disinterested in us and was simply going thru the motions.... More

My wife and I came in for dinner. We were immediately seated. In the lobby is a large knight. The atmosphere is very nice but relaxed. The service is excellent. My wife ordered the Schnitzel Cordon Blu and I had the Bavarian Platter. We also had a side of Spatzle. The food was delicious, some of the best German style... More

Dinner time was very relaxed. The meal was not hurried but timed to our liking. Our friends had dined here often which is a good sign. The German sample plate was awesome. I had a schnitzel with ham & cheese that was acceptable. The red cabbage and the creamed spinach is excellent. The pricing is fair on the items we... More

Ok... I love meat... I eat a lot of it. Good Steaks and hamburgers are my Kryptonite and the steaks at Jack's drop me to my knees. Wow, just last night I had their prime rib and it literally melted in my mouth...I'm salivating just thinking about it. The menu is incredible. The appetizers are delicious. I recommend the spaetzle... More

Just dropped in with a friend and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice decor, great service by the owner~ and great food. I ordered a steak and my friend ordered a schnitzel and they were both delicious. I think this is a great place to visit in Blaine and worth returning to.

We thought we would give this restaurant another try. When making reservations I told them it was an anniversary celebration. We were seated quickly but the service was slow. We told our waiter we were celebrating our anniversary. The bread and drinks arrived in a timely fashion. We found the restaurant very noisy, you could easily compare it to a... More

After spending the day driving through Vancouver and into Washington my husband wanted a steak dinner - a good steak dinner! I was hoping for at least one seafood item on the menu! We were both pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this gem. The atmosphere was that of the nicest restaurant in town with the added advantage of friendly instead... More

Recently my wife and I celebrated 11 years of marriage and we were so glad to celebrate it here. Our waiter Tony really was amazing and gave us the kind of service you desire when going to a restaurant. The food was amazing and while you might drop a little more coin here than other restaurants. I assure you you... More

We have been to this restaurant 2 or 3 times and the service and the food have been very good. It does not matter what you order, it is always good.

We usually go to a Steakhouse in Vegas for our Anniversary and have on occasion stayed local and eaten at John Howie, The Met, Jak's in Issaquah, etc. We decided to try Jack Niemanns because the menu items looked appealing. I ordered the special - 10oz New York and 8oz lobster for $29.99 and it was amazing. My wife has... More
