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!

The server could have been more friendly I understand I was there with Kids But all of the children were very polite and I just think the waitress could’ve been more attentive more accommodating and it looked and act and felt that she was upset that she had to deal with a table with four children two adults

Dining at Jake's was a birthday treat for me from my wife. Service was perfect as always and we love the friendly, casual ambiance. We ordered fresh oysters and chowder cups for starters along with fish & shrimp tacos from the Big Oyster Hour menu - these were all super delicious as expected. We got talking to a guy sitting by himself at the adjacent table in our corner, who turned out to be an Olympic swim coach from Quebec on the road visiting his athletes across Canada. Coach Michel is a super nice guy who had stopped into Jake's for the first time, as a travel break between Brantford and Markham, and sampled the chowder. He has travelled all over Canada and many other countries, and said it was the best he's ever had second only to a specialty chowder restaurant outside Halifax. As a shared main we decided on the special mussels in white wine sauce, and while the mussels were very good I thought the sauce was much less robust than expected (my wife had no such complaints). This is the first time in over a dozen meals at Jake's that I have rated anything less than 5 stars. I would have wanted to rate this visit 4-1/2 stars. But Jake's is still our fave go-to! We'll be back asap to try something else!! Also, just because I mentioned to the staff it was my birthday, they surprised me with a "Vesuvius" special dessert - hot brownie-style cake served in a bowl with ice cream, whipped cream and fresh strawberry on the side, and featuring a lit sparkler, all on the house. It was absolutely delicious. How great is that! We are planning to bring our family to Jake's for a family food fest. We know they'll love it :)

Foods great. Need to put Strongbow on the drum menu. Cider flavour drinks are to sweet. Our server was great and the food came out fast. It was not necessary for the host to advise us when the next reservation was coming in. It was a little offensive. It someone is staying longer then expected, just as if they would mind being moved to the bar and give them starter for their troubles

There were 4 of us that went for dinner and none of us had ever been to Jake’s before. Even though the restaurant was very busy (day after valentines), the service was fantastic, the food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Will definitely be back again.
