Jake's has never disappointed us. We go almost every year. The stuffed rockfish and broiled scallops are our favs. I'm sure there's better seafood available in town, but not for the price. We'll happily be back again and again!

Enjoy a tasty meal and enjoy a wonderful piano soloist at the same time. The broiled salmon is delicious, and do are the crab cakes. Give it a try!

By luck we stumbled on their Crab Cakes special night and we both ordered the two cake dinner platter. Plenty to eat and we each took home a crab cake for the following night's meal.

We visit Jake's every time we are in Rebooth but the one right in town not the one on Rt.1. Always great! Last visit they had amazing dirty martini specials. They were outstanding. Seafood is always delicious as is most of the menu.

My husband ordered the prime rib and asked for it medium rare. He was told that they couldn't serve it that way but it would be medium. When it arrived it was definitely more done than medium. The fish and chips I ordered were OK but nothing special. The piece of fish appeared to be large but it was very... More

Jakes is reknown amongst the "local" community for the off season offering of superb crab cakes for half price the menu fare! Two 4 ounce crab cakes with fries or a vegetable , offered at half off only on Wednesdays....great service, but get there early evening as supply may run out!

Crabcake was great!!!!! Service also excellent. Menu is way too big, like reading a novel. Jakes needs to offer a 1 page menu and get rid of all the fluff throughout the rest of the menu.

I have always preferred Jake's to some of the other restaurants in Rehoboth, so I was nervous about committing to dinner there after reading some of the recent reviews. But we had wonderful service from Kristin as well as an excellent grilled fresh salmon with a very tasty seafood bisque. Jake's did not disappoint.

Jakes, what a Joke! Used to be OK, but the prices doubled and the food is just slop. I sent back a glob of fries and the kitchen sent it back out. "Can't be bothered to make 'em right". The gourmet place next door has prices similar to Jakes, so there must be a nostalgia factor bringing in crowds that... More
