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

Met some friends and had an early lunch on the patio. Mind you, this place is not on the lake, it is across the street from it and there is not a lake view. Patio and interior are nice except there appears to be a single stall ladies room !! ?? The staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu... More

They're a bit out of the way for us but it's always worth the drive! The beer is always colder than any other restaurant in town, and the wood fired pizzas are the best! My husband thinks the Chowder is fabulous and the nachos are double layered with cheese!

We had breakfast at Jakes before driving back home after a week vacationing on Gull Lake. The caramel roll was delicious! The rest of breakfast was very good and service was excellent.

The wait staff was very very friendly and fast. They treated each customer with the most respect and like they have been coming there for years. Not only was the staff great but the food was amazing as well. If you are looking for a place to be greeted friendly with a fast staff and great food, then Jakes City... More

Stopped for a cocktail, had a couple of martinis - prepared just as ordered. Server asked if we'd like food, we only studied the menu, and decided against as there was a long evening ahead. She was kind enough to note the weekend breakfast menu, including awesome caramel rolls (included!!!!). We went back the next morning. Then, of course they... More

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
