    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!

    We ordered a full Lobster The tail was very small. We mentioned this to the server and she brought over the manager. Mark immediately refunded my dinner No questions asked. Thanks Mark. We have been coming to Jake's since the year it opened in 1985. We love the place and highly recommend it. Jamie the owner is terrific.

    We have been going to Jakes for years on a regular basis for special occasions, groups and casual family dinners. It was great except 4 of us had the halibut special and it was really disappointing; especially for price of the meal. The rest was good though.

    Fast, friendly service. Great value and good selection of food. Last place around to get a 16oz Rib Eye cooked just the way you like it! And the fish was fresh and delicious. You can tell a lot about a place by the condition of their washrooms. Immaculate in this place! Another great experience!

    Service was good except salads were served with the main course instead of before the entree. This meant we waited about 25 minutes before eating.

    We have been going there for a few months and loving everything about the place. The service , food and atmosphere are always fantastic, however, we had to return out French fries 3 times as they were still hard(undercooked). The osters were ok but the melback tasted a little off but the others were fine. Things seems little different this time and was the least favourite of our experience.
