Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

They have done a nice job adding the outdoor dining areas during the Covid era. Top quality service. Food was good but not great. I ordered the Maine lobster salad which was fine but not exceptional. My partner ordered the halibut special which he really liked. We also shared the mussels appetizer which again was good but not particularly special. Overall a nice meal.

Great lunch in the outside garden in late November.

The service was excellent and the food was excellent as always.

Hopefully, there will more 60 degree days to enjoy the Chez Francois this fall.

Great every time we visit Jacques’ Brasserie. Amazing service. Food very tasty, but we both felt incredibly full after having a burger.

We ate on the patio on a sunny, but brisk, November day, but were nicely warmed by the heaters. The food (onion soup, lobster bisque, salmon) was delicious and was served by a pleasant and accommodating staff. Had a nice visit with Chef Jacques in person.

Several friends and I gathered at the Brasserie to celebrate a 91st birthday . We enjoyed the ambiance of the patio and the view of the autumn countryside. But as always, the service was outstanding and cheerful, but never intrusive. We particularly enjoyed the Brasserie burger, which is so special and delicious. It has ruined me for other restaurant burgers. I enjoyed the Caesar salad too, which was a great accompaniment to the burger. I’m returning for lunch tomorrow and can hardly wait to see what great food will entice me then!

A great lunch on a great warm day in mid-November.

The outdoor tables are perfect for meeting a close friend during COVID time.

Consistently excellent food. The ambiance--at the outdoor seating was terrific, and only surpassed by the superb service by all the staff, but especially our waiter, Julio. Thank you Julio!! Always a treat to be at L'Auberge and Jacques and worth the long drive to Great Falls.

The waitstaff was so kind and helpful. Coupled with the wonderful cuisine. My plate under the Beef Bourguignon was a bit small. My knife and fork could not easily fit on the plate under the bowl of stew. Otherwise everything was great!

Both the food and the service are always great at Jaque's and theye were carefully attentive to virus preventiin measures. We have gone out very little since the beginning of the pandemic but have chosen Jaque's for our ventures and have been glad we did.

Having a autumn evening dinner, safely outside in the beautiful garden was magical! Everything was perfect! The service was fantastic and the ambience of the garden equal to the service. Will definitely return before the weather turns really cold!

We've been here several times before and it is one of the best casual dining experiences anywhere. My wife was looking forward to one of their pizzas but the menu was a little limited (probably due to Covid) and it wasn't on there. However, the food and drinks were delicious as usual.

We were seated outside, even though per Open table where we made reservations no outside tables were available. Service was courteous, timely and friendly. The Food was very Good and lived up to expections. We ordered the onion soup which was delicious.
House wine prices were reasonable.

The food was excellent as always. The service was subpar. The server didn’t know what wine to pair our food. We waited a while to get the check. Plus other little annoying manners that didn’t make our evening special.

We have lived in Great Falls since my daughter, who is now 26, was born. Chez Francois has always been a place to celebrate our milestones and the holidays, and enjoy Jacques irreverent cooking classes!!!

But, more and more of late we are drawn to Jacques Brasserie. The food is just as wonderful, the service warm and personable, and the atmosphere a bit more relaxed. Thank you to our favorite waiter, Edwin, for making our most recent visit yet another in a long series of memorable meals!
