I ate here because I like steak and I was passing though and other than fast food it was the only choice I saw. I was not impressed. The waitstaff all appeared to be about 15 years old. The meal started out bad when I asked for iced tea without Lemmon. The teen waitress walked to get it, came back... More

I've been here a few times over the years. Sometimes the food is better than other times. On my last visit, the food was bland and steaks were tough. No one in our group enjoyed their meal. The service was good and the waitress pleasant.

Because we were traveling with our dog, we decided to have take out from Big Jake's. The order was completely correct, ready in the amount of time told when placing, and was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the pinto beans and cornbread were delicious. The meal was great and better choice for us than the chain restaurants surrounding... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant and another for dinner. We wish we had tried the other restaurant instead of Big Jake's. The wait staff is young and very inexperience. There seems to be no older experienced supervision. Our waitress had trouble with the basic drink order of scotch and water. Food was average.

The service was very lacking and the food even more so! Our concerns were not addressed and we left very dissatisfied with entire experience.

Unique place to eat. Steaks were cooked to our specification and meals come with a bowl of awesome pinto beans. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. What more could you ask for. Can't wait to eat there again.

We chose Jake's when visiting the area because it was conveniently located close to our hotel. The menu choices seemed a little pricey - not tragic, but by no means economical. Service was slow and sporadic. The food was good, when it did arrive, but not really worth the price or the wait. If you think you might want more... More
