When you dine at Jake's in Del Mar, CA, you're treated like family. The beautiful ocean view from the window tables to the attentive wait staff make this restaurant one of the best in the San Diego area. Greg, our server, was very informative about the menu choices as well as the local area. Jake's, you have a superior associate... More

This restaurant is great since its next to the beach. Its a little crowded and the food takes a while, but the waitresses are nice. The food is not bad, the burger was my favorite. If you are in Del Mar you should definitely visit this place.

I had a wonderful meal and will definitely return to Jake's. Being on the coast makes the location special. The windows open so the ocean breeze can come in. There are so many things to choose from on the menu. Everything I tried was wonderful.

Have gone here for years and years. Sometimes it's wonderful, sometimes ho-hum. Seafood can be terrific. This visit we all felt disappointed----in service and food. Always crowded as it is right on the beach----a rare experience in Southern California. However, you take your chances.

The star of the show at Jake's is the view. The service was excellent and the food very good. Too crowded and definitely too loud but we had a great time. The pistachio crusted swordfish was good but the coffee crusted tuna was better. Not to be missed was the hazelnut ice cream dessert pie thingy. Yum!
