Great stop off a beer and food

My partner and I were looking for a place to grab to bite when we came across Jake Melnicks, what caught our eye was the street tables on the side of the building which was an ideal place to sit on a pleasant summer evening.

Tried this restaurant as they claimed to have great grilled chicken wings. For a Tuesday night, this restaurant was busy and noisy. It's more of a "sports bar" rather than a typical restaurant. As I was by myself I easily found a place on the "communal" table. My wait person was friendly and efficient. Food and beverage was quick. I... More

This place is filled with young people having a good time, by shouting at one another to be heard. Lots of televisions blast lots of sound in every direction. And even though almost no one seems to be paying attention to them, they seem to be on anyway. I found the waitress knowledge, and they did handle my order with... More

This is a very nice venue. We didn't have time to eat before jumping on a train home, but we did have a nice cold beer and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food looked delicious and the waitstaff was great! We would come back.

Visited here last night for dinner and drinks. Sat at the bar and Lisa was AMAZING!!!! Very attentive, friendly and phenomenal. Wish there wasn't tip sharing. Another person behind the bar was not deserving of tip share. Food was great and lots of TVs to view sports.

My daughter and I planned to go our for Italian but the restaurants on Superior had a long wait so we headed west to Jake Melnick's because they had outdoor seating which was appealing... until it started to drizzle. The hostess gladly seated us inside on the porch but then we noticed they had picnic tables under a canopy and... More

We were actually surprise that the food was good. We wanted to grab a quick bite to eat and the hotel concierge recommended Melnick's. We could smell the BBQ before we arrived at the door. It was very crowded but the service was quick. We ordered the Burger, Wings, BBQ Pork Sandwich, and Salad. The portion sizes were huge and... More

I order a "garlic and Parmesan french fries". It was horrible! All the fries were browns like it had been cooked with very used corn oil. After I went from this bar, I spend 1 hour with stomach pain.

Well I love this place, food is always good but wait staff was on holiday this visit. Gave up trying to actually order food and left after a drink.

We used Trip Advisor to find this place and it was perfect for our group of 9. We were seated very quickly and the food was good. Wings were outstanding!
