This was the first time I went to Jakes and I was surprised at the delicious juicy burger that I got, WOW!!! Sat at the bar which was nice and the people were friendly. I will go back soon for another great delicious burger.

We went to jakes for dinner one Saturday, as we had never been and it is just down the road. The charcuterie was a very good app, but for me the calamari with banana peppers stole the show! Cooked perfectly and very tender and flavorful. They also have an impressive beer selection. Not inexpensive, but a good place for a... More

The staff couldn't be more attentive, the food is pretty good and the decor has an old timey, clubby feel to it. We've hit them with large groups without notice and they've always treated us well. There's a back room with live entertainment and dancing. Never had a problem with parking. Bathrooms are clean!

The food is nothing special, service is good. They are not shy when it comes to prices, alittle high. I would return if it was my only choice.

Picked this place after reviewing Trip advisor. I don't understand where all the great reviews are coming from because I found this place to be nothing more than an average bar (seemingly townie). Food wasn't good. Actually they were out of several items to make drinks and menu selections. Had a really nice waiter though. Weird vibe in the place.... More

A GREAT place for dinner and drinks! We sat at the bar, the bartenders are friendly, warm and personable. Jake's Martini's are awesome. We have also sat in the dining room and the service was just as great.

Stopped here for dinner because we had to attend an event in the area. Menu has some good variety of appetizers, burgers, pub fare or treat yourself to a filet mignon. They have a drink menu - so if you don't get one, ask for it. The martini's were nicely prepared. We covered both ends of the spectrum this night... More

The selection of craft beer at Jakes is typically great if you are into craft beer. They change the selection often so you always have something good to choose from. The bar in the back occasionally has live bands playing as well which carries the standard beer selection.
