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.

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.

As always the food and service were impeccable. We ate outside under an umbrella as the rain came down but stayed dry. Actually it was romantic listening to the birds and the rain. A great anniversary meal.

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!

A lovely way to celebrate an anniversary, the classic Alsation cooking is rich without being heavy and very satisfying. Service under difficult pandemic conditions was attentive but not overbearing and the garden was pleasantly warmed up by the fire pit on a cool fall evening. Don't pass up the escargot!

We enjoyed our patio dining at Jacque's Brasserie for the first time and found the food is of course as delicious as our many visits to L'Auberge Chez Francois, the service as polished and the charm of the setting on the back patio was as lovely as all the spaces. The firepit was glowing nearby, twinkle lights were shining, and I hated to finish the last bite of decadent chocolate tart with both ice cream AND whipped cream!

The weather was perfect -- for October or anytime -- and the garden setting was great.

The food, of course, was terrific and the service attentive but not intrusive..

A 10 on a 10 point scale.

A belated wedding anniversary treat, at a restaurant we had heard good things about, but never visited. We had lunch outside on the grass under the trees on a beautiful sunny day. The food and the experience exceeded our expectations. To be renewed!

There's a reason why Jacque's and L'Auberge are rated very high! Food always good and service is outstanding. It's a tad on the pricier side, but all things considered, you get what you pay for.

Great considering the limitations. We made a reservation a week in advance for the Brasserie. The only availability was indoors at 4:45 or 5 pm, so we booked 4:45 pm. We we arrived, we were about to be shown a table outdoors in the tent when I pointed out our reservation was for inside. We would have gladly accepted the "upgrade" except it was cloudy and cool and mosquitoes eat me alive! There were only four tables inside, spread out along the walls. The room was busy as waiters were carrying trays through from the kitchen and from the bar to guests. If the room had been full, we wouldn't have noticed this above the chatter of other guests. Definitely not the usual ambiance, but we were happy to have a great meal at a great price for our first sit-down dining since March. When we left (about 6 p.m.), the parking lot was full. All restaurant personnel wore masks and gloves. We were sure to keep our masks on whenever the server was approaching or at the table. If you are a regular (or just looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion), I definitely would recommend Jacques Brasserie. And it you want to splurge, book for the price fixe dining upstairs (they have outdoor seating as well0>

Beautiful afternoon, relaxed comfortable outside seating and great food. Who could ask for more. Beef Bourgignon was cooked in classical style and the tenderloin was perfectly prepared. Good wine by the glass offerings. Great way to while away a weekday afternoon.

A chilly evening for al fresco dining. Nice setting. Good service. Escargot was over cooked. Steak was delicious but the pepper sauce hadn't much pepper. Souffles were really good. An expensive evening.
