For being a wing enthusiast who had just traveled to Buffalo, these are very good wings. The spicy buffalo variant is a frankenbuter sauce on a breaded wing that is fried. Could have been a little crispier but the wings were good size and juicy. The pizza is thin crust and good. What makes this place standout is the waitstaff.... More

My gf and I went on a Sunday evening. Great crowd, fun environment, delicious wings, and awesome salads. Our favorite is the street fries: fries topped of w pulled pork, melted cheese, and guacamole.

Jake's is well known for wings. I had the Firecracker jumbo wings which were a little less spicy than I thought, but the flavor was perfectly executed. My buddy had the PB&J wings (Thai Peanut sauce and raspberry jam sauce) and after trying one, it was spretty good, but I probably wouldn't order them again. It was an interesting pick,... More

The wings are great and so are the sauces. It was busy on a Friday night. Found two spots at the back bar. Food was excellent service was a little slow.

This restaurant is very convenient to where we are staying so we ordered take-out the other day and ate in the restaurant last night. I ordered the Pork Nachos last night and I had a small side of Parmesan Garlic Fries. Both were excellent and I had enough food for one or two more people from my order alone. I... More

I've been to Jake Melnick's Corner Tap on two different occasions. Excellent both times. They are very friendly, and go above and beyond to please you. Great selection of beers, and the pecan crusted French Toast was oh so good.

Stopped in to grab some beers. The beer list at Jake's is really solid, including Surly and lots of craft brews. Not a ton of local beer (beyond Lagunitas and Goose Island), which is a shame. Beer prices are on the high end. Be careful to check the price and the size of the pour. They have several 10 oz... More

Awesome wings and great atmosphere. Didn't even feel hungry when I walked in but that soon changed once I saw some other people eating.

This might be the best burger experience for many year. Great burgers. Great host. Everything is spot on. Don't miss it.
