Jakers Bar and Grill is just off Eagle Road in Meridian at the intersection of Pine/Eagle. For anyone driving by this would be an easy place to miss as it’s situated behind the Metro Car Wash. The Meridian location opened in 2007, replacing the Parkcenter restaurant in Boise. To give you an idea how good the food is there’s talk of expanding into Nevada next!

Lunch is served from 11:30-4:00 (despite the web site stating 11:30-2:30.) The menu boasts “Fun Food” (appetizers), tantalizing salads, and burgers/sandwiches. The wait staff suggested the most popular items were the Mandarin Crispy Chicken Salad, the Thai Steak Salad and the Hot Pastrami Reuben. There’s a great list of cocktail suggestions including margaritas, a large assortment of beer on tap, lemonade, smoothies, and wine. The iced tea with added fresh berries sounds like a summertime winner!

The extended dinner menu includes appetizers, salads, burgers/sandwiches as well as a variety of pasta dishes, chicken, ribs, chops, and steak and fish entrées. Don’t forget about the Hungry Hour special Sunday through Thursday. For only $9.99 patrons may order one of several entrées including Red Curry Thai Glazed Chicken or 6 oz. Center-cut Sirloin or Salmon which includes a side dish and salad!



Polished tables and booths line the perimeter of the dining room while a large bar and kitchen takes center stage in the middle. Several televisions throughout the restaurant are strategically placed to be within view but not very obtrusive. A small basket of scones along with a dish of soft honey butter appeared shortly after our order was placed. The bread and honey butter combination was nothing short of fabulous! Our meals were delivered promptly. The Jaker’s Combo contained large pieces of very spicy chicken; coconut shrimp; breaded calamari strips, and cream cheese shrimp wontons. An accompanying plate full of sauces such as blue cheese sauce; wasabi dip; and Malibu rum coconut sauce were beautifully presented alongside the combo dish. The Mandarin Crispy Salad, ordered with Shrimp Tempura, was a gorgeous salad artfully presented on a platter big enough to serve two! Five huge shrimp, perfectly cooked, topped the crispy wontons and fresh array of greens. Service was attentive and friendly, and the food was excellent!.
