“Lovely food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 via mobile

Yet another evening at the restaurant Jacob's BBQ has past. I dine at Jacobs BBQ the restaurant on the first floor approximate 10 times a year, both as a place to finish off a business meeting or as a place to relax over a perfect dinner with friends or simply just a glass of wine and a snack.
The food is just supreme, and even do I have my favourites, I sometimes try something new, and each time I am positively surprised.
The service is at a very high standard, and even do it is busy the waiter still seems to know when you need them.
The atmosphere is very cosy and even do it can be a little nosy at peak times, it is still possible to be "private".
The price level is at the better end, but considering the standard of the food, the service and the atmosphere, not to talk about the opening times, they serve dinner past midnight, it is quite reasonable.
So I am already planning my next visit, even do I have just had dinner there and last week was there for a glass of wine. Differently the place to go for a good dinner in Aarhus.

“Best Steak in Denmark”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

If you are looking for a great steak then this is the place, not the most trendiest place and certainly not cheap but food quality is excellent. Go for the Pepper steak and you certainly won;t be disappointed.

“Tasty with great service”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

After entering the restaurant we were immediately struck by how helpful and friendly the staff were. We were allowed to choose our seat and then given an English menu, which was really helpful. The food was great, but not life changing. I think the price is a little steep for what you get and so I will not be returning, but the service really shines through and makes this a great place to visit.

“Best spot for steaks in Århus”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Jacobs is by no means a fine dining eperience and it's generally hard to talk about value for money in Danish restaurants. But steakhouses don't need to be complicated and at Jacobs you do get a proper steak at a reasonable price. I'm in Århus a few tew times a year and this is one of my favourite spots. To get to the main restaurant you walk into a courtyard and climb a flight of stairs but there's also a bar at the front where most of the restaurant menu is available. The bar is much nicer in my opinion.

“Last restaurant open !”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Very good meat ! But the real stuff is ... That it's open late in the evening. This is really important in Aarhus when your landing at 21h... And find a restaurant so late... The only one is : jacobs bq.
The main point with jacobs bq is the invoice ! A bit expensive for a meat restaurant.
