Description: Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.

We went to this restaurant for our last evening of our holiday and we're not disappointed. The location is excellent directly by the beach with lovely views. The food was very good

My first time to Del Mar, and advised to have my dinner at Jakes by the water. First of all choose a seat near the window at dinner time to take in the amazing sunsets. Choose a bottle of wine from their vast selection, then choose from their outstanding selections of seafood and beef. You must try the Cerviche...The best... More

We visit annually. We always make Jakes our first stop. The total experience is perfect we time our arrival to seat just before sunset to see it we can see the "green flash." As the sun goes down. It is a perfect location. The food is very good and the service has always been fun.

Our return visit to this ocean front restaurant did not disappoint. The food and service were great and the sunset over the Pacific was spectacular. My scallops were nicely prepared and the Aloha Pie should not be missed. Jake's remains one of our favorites in the North SD area.

Always stop here when I am in San Diego area. Great happy hour spot with a picture perfect sunset....it never gets old. Food is solid...service consistently excellent. Tip: Valet is cheaper than paid lot across the street. Can be pretty busy during happy hour so get there early or reserve a table in dining room.

Even though I needed to dine by myself on this particular b'day I felt ever so special with this as my lunch location recently. Noting the b'day when I made my reservation for a late lunch, I was wonderfully surprised to not only have a quiet, on the window, overlooking the beautiful ocean but the experience was further marked with...

We've been going to Jakes for many years. It is consistently fun and serves delicious food. I knocked one star off since their prices have gone up and they no longer serve their tornadoes special steak dish. Still love it here!

A great TS resturant in Del Mar, it sits right on the beach. It has a large enclosed dining area with great viwes of sand and sea. If you are a people watching person dosen't get much better inthe summer. Varied menue with fresh fish and several unique presentations. Good bar, however, not extermely large, with a good wine list.
