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.

Sunset and Great Food

Go to place for sunset on the beach. Mixed seafood pot is the best! Don't forget to save room for the Hula pie.

We live across the street and this is a local favorite! You can sit in the bar or make reservations for the dining room. Great food and friendly service!

We decided on this restaurant after reading the reviews on trip advisor. It did not disappoint. It is a very lively, busy place with great views. The four of us tried two appy's to share, the Brussels sprouts and the calamari, both were great. Very large appy's so my husband and I split the scallop entre. Our friends had the... More

Food was good, not great at this beach front restaurant. Nice view. Service was fine. Prices were fair for this type of touristy eatery. I'd give 3+ if it was an option. The chicken salad was tasty but a bit salty. My friends were all satisfied with their meals. I think you choose this place for the view. $4 valet... More

We made sure to get to Jakes early to take advantage of their deals since we had a large party. We ended up being able to get a ton of interesting food for a great price. The staff was great and they were all really easy to talk to. Really glad we tried the place out and I am sure... More

This place was recommended by our hotel person who is a local. She steered us right. The restaurant is located right on the beach and the place and view are just beautiful. The food is the second good thing, oh so very yummy. You can tell they go the extra mile to get everything top notch with the food. High... More

I really liked the service. Everyone was organized and on top of things. The food was great! Try the brussel sprouts! The view is wonderful as well. It's a busy place, and certainly not cheap, but worth a special occasion for sure!

Went here with a colleague and a friend. We arrived an hour before our reservation in hopes of getting in early but they said we could not. We lucked upon an open table in the bar and they serve their full menu in the bar as well. Even though we weren't in a window seat, we still had a great... More
