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 asked to stay in the bar because of mobility issues, it was accommodated, even though they had a pre-booked group. It was my in-laws 65th they were treated like royalty. The Bookenda reservation was flawless as well. Great evening from the reservation to the end of service, perfect.

I have been a patron of Jakes for almost 30 years (Mark Hanes and the Zippers) and have found the food, service and experience more than satisfactory. Some items are getting expensive but not enough that I would consider not returning. Don

What a great restaurant. Both my husband and I enjoyed it very mush. The oysters were fresh and delicious as well as all the other food we had. The waitress kept apologising about the service being slow but we found it to be great! We didn't feel like we had to hurry up and eat the apps before the mains came and got to wait before having desert. We will be back for sure

The service was very slow.. and it wasn't a busy time.. it was at 1:30..we had arrived early.. we got our actual lunch after 2:30 and left around 4.. We ordered our appetizer and our lunch. The appetizer came in 10 -15 min maybe, but we waited over 1/2 hour for our lunch.. My friend had the Lake Erie perch and enjoyed it immensely. I ordered the pulled chicken soft tacos.. They were hard to eat because they were so full which was nice, so had to be cut, which was fine, but.. in the first taco I had 4 pieces of cartilage and grizzle which is very unpleasant to suddenly chew into one and then have to quietly remove it from my mouth without my friend noticing.... when I started the second taco, I combed through the chicken first and found 3 more pieces of cartilage. These were not small pieces, they were at least an inch in diameter or more. A young waiter saw me poking at my food as the waitress came over.. they both saw it and the waitress took my lunch off the bill which was very nice of her. I had been for dinner at your establishment and absolutely loved the steak and shrimp.. so I looked forward to bringing my friend from Stoney Creek to have lunch.. Even though the waitress apologized and my lunch was free, it did upset me a lot, and we decide to have a dessert to try and kind of finish off on a happier note, but honestly, it left a real negative impact on me..

It had been some time since I visited Jake’s and again we had a great experience. We arrived in time for the happy hour and enjoyed some appetizers before we all ordered the Monday night rib deal. Our waitress was very attentive, informative with a sense of humour. The food was well prepared and great value.
