About the restaurant
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 had an exceptional experience at Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez Francois. The outdoor seating in the Brasserie Pavilion was perfect for a leisurely lunch. The ambiance was serene and charming, making it an ideal spot for a relaxed meal. The service was impeccable; the staff were attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was outstanding, with each dish beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. Overall, it was a delightful dining experience that I highly recommend.

Scallops were melt in your mouth, lobster tail and crab cakes were perfectly prepared. Dessert was great, crème brûlée and brownie were good. Coffee had grounds in the bottom of the cup.

This was our 2nd dinner at Patowmack Farm. It was a multi-course meal. It was a fun experience - the food featuring unusual ingredients creatively combined, beautifully presented, and a treat for the taste buds and the eyes. If only it was not a 1.2 hour drive we'd go more often.
