While away on business I wanted to watch the MNF game, so I stumbled on this place. I loved it! Great atmosphere, great service and my food was really good too. I'll likely be in Sterling Heights again and I will definitely go to Gator Jakes again!

Great place to get a reasonably priced meal and good hefty portions. Great clubhouse...good burgers and fish and chips were tasty as well. Highly recommended.

I really enjoy going to Gator Jake's for lunch. The food is reasonably priced and the service is usually fast. The nachos and burgers are good and they also have a good selection of sandwiches and other types of bar food. They usually have lunch specials and they are an especially good deal. I keep coming back to Gator Jake's... More

We are regulars here and have a good time. The food is pretty good, but the service on the weekends is pretty slow.

Stopped in a week ago when in town for one of the Big 3. Average food and stuck up servers and bartenders. When your phone and purse/smoke is more important the your customers...it is best you stop acting like bartending is a "career". If you are not a regular here...they do not care.

A little too loud but it was Sunday Football. A lot of TVs for watching whatever sporting event you want to watch. I had the Jambalaya and my husband had a pasta dish both were very tasty and ample is portion size. They also had decent bar specials going on too. I would go back again.

A friend of mine and I stopped by after work one day for some drinks and dinner. When you walk in you see multiple flat screen TV's hanging from the ceiling with various sports and Keeno being displayed. There is an oval shaped bar right in the middle of the place with seating positioned all around it. There are booths... More

We had two very good meals. One was fish and chips and the other,chicken strips. Comes with veggie and soup or salad. The salad was quite large. I couldn't even finish the chicken, there was so much to eat. Had to get a doggy bag. Good wait staff, but we couldn't hear each other talk. The music was waaay to... More

Whether its a sports night, or just a dinning out night, this is the place. Great atmosphere, wonderful wait staff, great food at respectable prices. Being not far from the house, a favorite place to meet up with friends or dine with the family.
