Great food, generous portions, friendly, casual. Somewhat noisy if the restaurant is full which it usually is during the dinner hours.

On our recent Gull Lake stay at Madden's. we had to include dinner at Jake's City Grill. We live kind of close to the Jake's in Eden Prairie and go there, too. Good service, great food, reasonable prices and a wide variety of options on the menu.

Five of us stopped by Jake's recently. We all enjoyed our meals from casual food (fish tacos and a pulled Pork sandwich) to dinners like the pecan crusted walleye. The desserts looked fantastic so we selected the Banana Crème Pie. It was excellent! Our server was very attentive, personable and pleasant. If you are looking for a menu with a... More

My wife had the pizza rolls and I had the spicey green beans, Both of these were very good. The pizza rolls were the best I have ever had. Jakes had a few good local beers on tap as well.

Three of us stopped in. I had the buffalo wings which were nice. The others had the pecan crusted walleye which was average, our third person had a burger with an egg and it was very good. The problem they had no AC! It was 80 degrees where we were seated. When we asked we were told that there was... More

We have eaten breakfast (which always includes a massive caramel roll that comes with each meal), lunch, appetizers, and dinner at Jake's and it is always excellent! They have fine dining selections, burgers and salads, and amazing desserts! So, whatever you are in the mood for! They have fun events too and great specials like build your own pasta night... More

Nice atmosphere, not fancy. Decent food and good service. No view. Nice patio but it faces the road. Comfortable for a basic dinner out

The food is very good. The service however was not good. It is understandable if it was busy, no excuse when there are only two tables.Iwould have ordered another drink and dessert but got tired of waiting for service. Ended up at bar harbor for that.

Went to Jakes upon a recommendation.I was unaware it was connected to the Jakes in the Minneapolis area. Our waitress was top notch and never missed a beat.Found the food to be average to good, very reminiscent of the Twin Cities sports bar and not an up north hole in the wall. Deserves a solid 3.5. We had wings and... More

Really awesome chili! Very good!!! However when you order this to go, they do not fill the bowls. We've ordered this a few times to go & have never had this problem.
