Not too many choices for me as I avoid wheat and dairy, but salmon was and twice baked potatoes was tasty, veggies were too al dente--as is the trend these days. Salad for lunch was find.

We dined here for the memories, and it did not disappoint! We used to live in College Place until 2003. Haven't been back to Jacobi's since. The only thing different was the decor. There used to be intricate wood carvings (an entire working typewriter, for one!) that are no longer in the lobby. But the food is just as good... More

OK, on the plus side, this is one of the few places in Walla Walla that is comfortable eating with little kids. And the atmosphere, with the train car, is fun. The food has never wowed me, but its always been OK - akin to a franchise restaurant, even though it isn't. But today my husband and I stopped in... More

We had a delightful late lunch at Jacobi' s. The lasagna was excellent and the soup and salad were very good. Nice atmosphere, great hours (open all day), helpful service. It's not on Main Street, but it's not far, and it is much, much better than Olive, Brasserie, and others higher in the TA rankings.

Had lunch last week, first time we'd been in. Slow service, but food was good. I had the italian lunch meat salad, quite good and very generous meat portions. My friend gave them cash and somehow that caused mass chaos. How can you have a lunch service with an empty drawer??

I had a great meal at Jacobi's on Veterans Day. Had salad, soup, roast beef and three glasses of wine, topped by a luscious chocolate cake from the dessert case. The beef was cooked exactly right, and was as tender as could be imagined. The wine was a good value.

We love Jacobi's! Great variety including classic italian dishes, salad options, delicious pastas and our favorite as far as getting a great steak! We are always greeted by friendly staff and efficient service and they have one of the best patios for summertime happy hours in Walla Walla! Jacobi's has been around for a long time for a good reason!

Vacationing in wine country and thought this looked like a good place. A wide variety of tastes and likes in this group including vegan and vegetarian and no one came away saying anything remarkable. Salads were generous and fresh. Italian dishes were OK but again, nothing special. We did not try the deserts but the looked good, especially the cheese... More

In a town of "foodies " and wine snobs, I believe they will struggle. It's away from the main entertainment area and it's shows. The food is just ok. It seems like a mismanaged chain with absent ownership. It's lacking and not worth the 1 mile drive from downtown. I am writing this review ftom the bar and it's just... More

Got there 5 minutes before reservation and had to wait 15 minutes before anyone even spoke to us. Got seated and got same bad waiter we had last time. Left us with menus, didn't ask about drinks. Finally came back and we ordered drinks and dinner. Food not bad but service will keep us from coming back. Last 5 minutes... More

I am so sorry you tried us again and your service was lacking, please let me know which male server you had so I am able to address the issue with him. I am glad to hear the server that took over your table was excellent! Please keep in mind that you can either request a specific server or not... More
