Mussels Galore!

Went to this restaurant last night for dinner with four of our friends. Fantastic food and deserts. Staff very good, knew their stuff and very efficient. The Mussels were from Salt Spring Island B.C. and were huge and absolutely to die for. Prices reasonable. A busy place for a Thursday night.

Thus eatery was a great find. With reservations we were seated at one of the best tables. We enjoyed the seared tuna appetizer as well as the Bronzed tuna super food salad . The service and ambiance were delightful We will return .

Had a family meal and was disappointed with the food quality. My son ordered the beef dip and it was very cold meat and the bun was burnt? How does that happen. I ordered the salmon special and it had a mediocre taste. My wife and other son ordered the haddock fish and chips. It must been frozen because the... More

This was my second visit to this wonderful restaurant! Before I begin to tell you about the experience, let me tell you a little about Jake’s Grill & Oyster House. Its owner and founder, Jamie Myers (aka The Big Oyster) opened the restaurant in 1985 and it has been growing in popularity ever since. It features market fresh oysters straight... More

We've been going to Jake's as a regular for years. It's always a busy spot. Local business people frequent Jake's bar for lunch and after work and it's always an electric spot to unwind. Oysters are always fresh and a hit! Food at Jake's is top drawer taste with roadhouse cost. Try the seared tuna and you'll think you are... More

Jack's is a great place for excellent wine, oysters, steaks and Chocolate Lava cake!. I like that they take reservations, especially nice when you have a big group going out on a Fri or Sat night. I still miss the Steak Oscar though.

I have lived in Burlington for 30 years and only visited Jake's for the first time in August 2013. All I can say is that I wish I had known about this place years ago. Now I visit Jake's AT LEAST three times a month. It is definitely the "go-to" spot for my wife and I when we don't feel... More

Went on a Monday night and was surprised how busy it was. We had the crab stuffed wontons as an appetizer and they were amazing. I had the lake erie pickerel, it was also fantastic, we also had some cocktails and speciality coffees, these were just okay. The only complaint is that we were sitting right next to a large...

We visited this restaurant for the first time for a family function. It was easy to find, literally on the west side of Walker's Ln in Burlington at the QEW. The building is simple looking and the interior is typically (for an oyster house) nautically themed. There is plenty of parking. It is not a large place. We had been... More

The chowder is very good. I had the jumbo shrimp dish, and didn't care for it. The shrimp were very tough. My co-workers told me the steaks here are good, so for dinner we ordered steak and they were quite good.
