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.

Visited here and had a really nice meal, everyone enjoyed their food. Only problem was a lack of staff, not enough servers, it was a weekday so it may not have been busy before but it was holiday season. Would highly recommend anyway.

Jake's is one of my friend's favorite places so I agreed to go along to slake his craving while hoping I could have at least a salad since I'm the vegan boy. Christine, our server, suggested the pasta and made sure that it was made with tons of veggies and it was excellent. The pasta was cooked well and there... More

The selection of oysters here on any given day is impressive and fresh. This is our go to place when we are craving oysters on the half shell. The rest of the food is also very good. For this particular visit, the shrimp and scallop dish had the silkiest scallops I've ever eaten. The linguine dish...excellent also. During most visits... More

I find this place confusing to get to but when you do it is worth it. I feel this place has a charm of intimacy, but can be for any one. Food has yet to disappoint, and am always satisfied with what I get. Bucket style or your own choice. My visits are usually once a year. But just keep... More

Jake's once again comes through with a delicious lunch. Blackened Talapia Fish Taco's with amazing Clam Chowder...one of the best I've had. The burger my business partner had was also very good. Much better than most restaurants in town.
