Service is lacking. The steaks are just average for a steak house. The appetizers were the best part of the meal. For the price was expecting more.

This place is now called Jake's Public House. We visited around 7:30 on a Saturday night, right after the Cubs v. Cards game. It was the last series of the season, and the city was very busy. Jake's didn't seem quite prepared for this. Although the restaurant was half empty, they were out of diet coke, bud light, and french... More

We visited the restaurant on November 17th after had been here 2 times before under the previous ownership. It has definitely changed since then. The menu is different and the service was uninviting, One of our favorite things previously had been jalepeno cornbread and it was no longer available. It was early evening on a Saturday night and they had... More

The whole experience was just bad. We went on a Thursday eve around 7:30 and we stood at the door waiting to be seated for about 10 min with not a word said to us. The bartender came to seat us and asked us to wait longer till he could clean off a table. This wasn't a big deal we... More

It should be noted that the restaurant ownership has changed, per our server. I believe the current name is Jakes on the Landing. We recently celebrated my daughter's birthday at Jakes. I had dined there many years ago and remembered a great meal. Unfortunately things have changed with time. Now the staff, while pleasant, is shortstaffed. There were several items... More

Service was good after we could find someone to seat us. Food was just average and nothing special. Appetizers were much better than the main course. The one portion of the main course that was outstanding was the Mac & Cheese.

Can't say enough about the steak I had this past weekend. Friendly staff & quick service. Clean & convenient to downtown hotels.

Server was not very attentive. They were not busy, just don't think she cared honestly. The menu is varied. My filet was very good, but my friend's Sirloin lacked flavor. They could work on their platting. Very unappealing!! Their Mac 'n Cheese was to die for!! I would go back & give it another try.

It had been a while since I went to this location but I really enjoyed the food. I had a burger and onion straws and it was awesome. The time it took to get our order out was longer than expected. Dealing with a lunch crowd you really need improve on the preparation time of your customers orders. I would... More

First it took a waitress 25 minutes to wait on us and it wasn't even crowded. We ordered chips and quest for an appitizer and the chips were the worst I have ever eaten. We couldn't even begin to eat them. We asked for another serving but were told they would be the same as what we already had. Another... More
