Lunch or Dinner - Always satisfying

On the whole, the staff are attentive and professional. The food is always good. Excellent portions, tasty twists, great old standbys. For lunch I strongly recommend the fish tacos and Bronzed Ahi Tuna Super Salad if you are really hungry. They will even cook the tuna well-done for those who... read more

Jake's has Ribs and other non aquatic fare, but if you love seafood this is the place to go! We dined recently and two chose Snake Bite Salmon, one chose swordfish steak and I went for the yellow fin Tuna. We were all happy with our choices and the plates were licked cleaned. Fish portions were generous and well cooked... More

Jakes was a great choice for a business dinner. They have a terrific selection of seafood and a few steaks on the menu. The staff was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. I had a steak with a baked potato and grilled peppers. The steak was average. The grilled peppers were great! I would return.

A vendor from the states actually remembered going to Jake's previously and insisted we go there again - and he was right - another excellent meal. We don't go often (2 to 3 times a year), but we have never, ever been disappointed regardless of busy nights, slow nights, or the season - we even had our company Christmas Dinner... More

went with my GF for her birthday with her parents. None of us had even tried oysters before so we figured we would be adventurous! The assistance from the waitress was very good in determining what to order and how many and in her description of the sauces. The Oysters were VERY fresh and DELICIOUS! They were so good that...

We heard about this restaurant from a relative , decided to go for a try. We ordered Lobster and shrimp roll and calamari . The deep fired Cajun calamari was good and tasty, but the Lobster and Shrimp roll was not worth CAD15.99 . Service was good , staff friendly .

Jake's doesn't fail. It consistently provides excellent meals. Wood grilled strip loin with Bearnaise sauce, baked potato and perfectly cooked beans and asparagus as sides. Calamari and Mussels are always a favourite. This is the first time we have tried desert and we were suitably impressed. Lemon curd served in a phyllo cup with fresh berries and whipped cream and...
