    Excellent food and service. We were there to celebrate a birthday, didn't tell anyone that, must've overheard a cheers and at the end of dinner dessert with a sparkler was served. very thoughtful. Roasted root veg was very big hit with all of us.

    Increased their prices alot

    They have raised their prices considerably. When asked about the new menu the waitress had a huge attitude! Very rude server .Reasonably good food which was always expensive now, way overpriced. Appetizers are poor in size and extremely expensive.

    Hmmm

    My original interest in Jakes was the oysters and appetizers, plus they have a happy hour for them. But when we finally went it was too late for this, so we went for dinner. After reading all these great reviews I'll have to go back sometime. We started our evening being seated in the noisiest dining room ever with the worst accoustics ever. It seemed the room was filled with yelling customers. Just as we were about to leave we saw the patio, and the greeter, who was great, saw us out there to a table. It's very nice out there. Then we were met by a lovely waitress, new to Jakes, but ready with all the answers and able to get the info if it wasn't at her fingertips, and very, very pleasant and efficient. Our meals were merely adequate after first tasting 4 different kinds of oysters, which were delicious, as we really love fresh oysters with lemon. I had the rare tuna and she had the tilapia oscar. Her fish was very overcooked but her crab was tasty. The hollandaise tasted like cheese sauce. My tuna looked cooked to perfection but seemed very bland. It really needed the ginger to help bring out the flavour of the fish. We both had the garlic mashed potatoes which were very good. Oh, the waitress overheard it was my birthday and brought a complimentary dessert, which was also very good. All told we thought we probably won't be back but we may need to try the different seafood apps as a meal next time. Or perhaps I drop in with the guys after golf.

    WOW !!

    Best seafood chowder on the planet , replete with chunks of fish stuff in a creamy New England sauce. Sirloin steak, perfectly grilled. Reasonable prices. Pleasant staff. A shady, outdoor patio area. WOW !!

    MMMM good!

    We go to Jake's regularly - in the summertime, i thoroughly enjoy the back patio...which i think has been a kept secret for years! I have tried everything on the menu at some point so when i go there it is very difficult to choose. This time around, we did the appetizers thing and i had a dinner salad - thank god as i was so full! If you like crab go for the crab stuffed wontons and cajun calamari! Service is always good, people are friendly - definitely worth checking out for those of you who are curious!

    Getting to the restaurant was difficult. Construction. Food was good. Service was mediocre. Price was high compared to level of service etc. $225 for 5 people with only one beer purchased. $15 for a shrimp cocktail that only had 3 shrimp. Prices were comparable to 4 star restaurant in the city. Unfortunately, portion size, quality, and service aren't at that level. I didn't think it was good value. I expected more. Don't think I'll be back.

    Actually I never give reviews but we were just talking about our night as we left. We've been locals and enjoying Jakes for over 30 yrs and it's still a place we love to have dinner! We've moved so it's not our local anymore but try to go as often as we can. I was asking our waitress who greated us so warmly because she hadn't seen us for awhile about another waitress that was on maternity leave... She got us up to speed and it felt like we hadn't missed a beat! Love Jakes food service atmosphere staff is fantastic!!

    Dinner was just awesome. Our waitress Patti, was friendly, attentive and helpful. The King Crab that my wife and I ordered was delicious. It was our 20th anniversary and the food and service made it very special. This was our first time at Jake’s and we will be returning for sure! Thanks again...great job by all!

    Our party of five enjoyed getting together at Jakes Grill. As always, the seafood chowder was outstanding. I had the perch, which was delicious, as my main course. My spouse thoroughly enjoyed her Jakes House salad with mandarin orange and chicken. Our friends had nothing but praise for their meals as well. Our server, Jaq, was attentive, friendly and helpful. An overall great dining experience.
