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.

There are so many good selections to choose from. My gazpacho and classic beef Bourguignon were both delicious! The breads and butter/cheese bread were delicious (hard to stop eating!). My husband’s seafood with pasta in the lobster saffron fell a bit short, unfortunately. He had to request salt and the flavor was not near as good as my beef. Rest assured though - we will be back soon.

This was our first trip to a restaurant since the pandemic began and we couldn’t have been more pleased. We chose the outdoor garden setting on a cool fall day for our anniversary lunch. We always enjoy the experience at Jacques’ but were particularly pleased with the attention to social distancing and other details that made us feel very safe. We felt very comfortable eating at the well-spaced tables in the garden.

We love everything about Jacques’ Brasserie, in fact maybe even more than L’Auberge because it’s so nice and easy. You don’t need a big special occasion to dine at the Brasserie. Food is great, casual but still classic French and very tasty. And especially during these crazy times, eating at Jacques feels like a peaceful reprieve and treat in the countryside away from everyone 😍

The patio seating was pleasant and tables socially distanced as required. Walked around the property and the tent setting was also packed and observved social distanced tables. The two gazeebo is fabulous for fall specially the nippy evenings.

We were old customers as we live nearby but we sort of stayed out of Jacques for awhile. It is indeed good to be back in our neighborhood.
This restaurant is just a but a few left of the old French hospitality full service restaurant. Definetely coming back as we want them to stay open for the next generation to enjoy as we did.

We ate outside under the canopy. It was a warm, humid and rainy day but the fans kept us cool and the clear plastic sides kept us dry. There were only a few tables so social distancing was not an issue.

We went to celebrate our 43rd anniversary . Highlights were the Grand Marnier soufflé and the lobster salad. It’s 30 minutes from our home, but that’s part of the appeal. Beautiful drive and lovely spacing of tables outside.

The tables indoors were nicely distanced. Staff wear masks. The food was excellent. Their beef, which is the best in the area, melts in your mouth. Yum! We'll return soon.

Eating safely and magnificently: Wagye beef cheeks and lobster in the garden. What could be better as a glorious lunch? I made a new reservation as soon as I tasted the bread.

Three of us were able to switch from an inside to an outside table under the big tent on a (finally!) lovely, cool evening. All of had the gazpacho appetizer special and it was delicious. Our 3 different entrees were the Norwegian salmon with Bernaise sauce, trout with almonds, and the Sunday night special shrimp and scallops with risotta - and every one of us loved our main courses. I already booked a table for 2 in a couple of weeks to go back.

First, let us say that it was evident how hard Jacques Haeringer works to keep this restaurant running smoothly, especially during this difficult time, and he clearly gets his exercise. It has to be a real challenge and we salute him and the staff!

We had asked in our reservation to be seated outside and it was a beautiful day, but we were told our table would be inside . I believe this was because a couple without a reservation standing ahead of us insisted on sitting outside and kept the staff occupied for a few minutes discussing where they would sit. We didn't complain and were actually okay being inside as every outside table was taken and we felt safer, given Covid and the number of people dining.

Our food was delicious and beautifully prepared. The filet medallions were tender and juicy but strangely, the flavor did not taste like beef. It was lovely to have the wonderful bread and fresh vegetables from their garden. Our server was friendly and attentive, and all the servers were masked. We loved our raspberry souffle', courtesy of Jacques. We love dining here!

We always go to L'Auberge for special events (like anniversaries and birthdays) because it's a special place. This was our first time going to Jacques' Brasserie. The weather was perfect, we had a table outside, felt completely safe, great ambiance. It was a perfect meal.
