Seven of us went for lunch to celebrate a birthday. It was a Friday lunch hour & busy, but we were seated quickly (had a reservation) & drink orders taken. I had half a doz. oysters & then haddock & chips. It was served promptly & the haddock was quite a large portion. The birthday boy got a complimentary dessert.... More

Jake's is a great place to stop in for fresh oysters and beers while watching a game or enjoying a nice dinner in the casual dining room. I have enjoyed all entrees but my favorites are the blackened tuna or shoreline pickerel. Definitely my favorite place to eat in Burlington and a great place for a business dinner.

This a really nice place But dark where we were seated and around us. Why do they always insist on this atmosphere where you cannot even read the menu. It absolutely ruins the experience. Part of the evenings dinner experience is the visual of the food being served. It was so dark this was impossible to really have the best... More

My husband and I made reservations for dinner here a couple of weeks ago and it was a good thing we did because the restaurant was packed. We arrived a bit early so our table was just being cleared. The front staff greeted us warmly and both of them went to expedite the clearing up process. While we waited other... More

At Jakes you can always count on fresh seafood. They have an above average menu with lots to choose from. Our service has always been great when we are there so it's not just a fluke getting great service. Great for business and family dinners.

Love the oysters and very tasty clam chowder. The service was good. The place was busy when we came in but we were still served on a timely fashion.

Two experiences, one very good, one mediocre. Started one meal at the bar and then shifted to a table. Surprisingly, that was the better of the two meals there. The bartender was knowledgeable and engaging. Started the other meal at a table and suffered from lack of staff and then lack of attention when wait staff finally did arrive.

Best seafood chowder I've ever had. (Shhh ... I asked and the waitress said they put brandy or rum in it.) The steaks are great and so is the ambience.
