Still my fav...

I've only ever had one bad experience here and it was a steak that I had to send back twice because it wasn't cooked to my liking. Other than that, Jakes is the best restaurant in my opinion for quality, service and great atmosphere.

Next door to the hotel, so easy to access. Service was great, Christine had a smile and was attentive. Food favors more seafood, which appears on the menu to have good variety along with selections for those who want something else. Very good here!

One of our "go to" places for seafood which we always enjoy. Never a bad meal whether lunch or dinner. It can get noisy at times especially on weekend evenings, but worth a visit if you like seafood. Having said that, their ribs are pretty tasty too and at Thanksgiving, they always have deep fried turkey which is very tasty.... More

I was pleasantly shocked following an incredible meal at Jake's the other night! There were twelve of us and the seafood was absolutely awesome. A rare combination of high quality food, ample servings and a wonderful atmosphere - and reasonably priced. As a Maritimer I must admit - I have not had better seafood anywhere in Atlantic Canada!

I have lunch at Jakes whenever possible. I like the great selection of seafood, salads and traditional fare. I like to order a different meal from my previous visit as there are so many good choices.

Between the four of us, we tried seared tuna and grilled calamari from the Happy Hour menu (Sunday 4PM-6PM), and then the haddock and chips, pickerel and chips, perch and chips, and a Jake's salad. Everything at Jake's was excellent!! Service was very good and portions were very, very generous too. Jake's is always a quality, friendly place to visit... More

Love this place. It's so easy to visit - great food, lovely servers, fun atmostphere. The roads are a bit challenging to enter the driveway (easiest coming south on Walkers) so be careful what instructions you give to first timers! Price is right - good quality, nice selection of items, easy to share and have fun with friends.

Never had a poor meal here, the sea food is always excellent as is the seafood chowder. Have had several group events here and they have always handled them with satisfaction.
