Though expensive, the food was okay. However, they tried to rush our party of seven to eat quickly, and free up our table. And, horifically, they built in overcharges in the bill. I had to stay late, arguing with them in order to be charged correctly. We will not return to the downtown Jake's location.

great Steak, fun atmosphere with a lot of energy, really busy, the air was really stuffy (body odor) on a saturday night, they need to take note of that, not sure if their air conditioning wasnt working or not but it made people turn away at the door.

I love Jakes because it reminds me of the kinds of places I used to believe were high class restaurants. Lot's of beef on the menu, experienced wait staff, comfortable surroundings, and a good bar. I like the one downtown much better than the West End venue. Only drawback is not open on Sundays. Terrific reasonably priced luncheon specials.

We took our grandaughter here for her birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent as always. My prime rib steak was delicious as was the shrimp my husband enjoyed.. My granddaughter had her favorite filet and we finished off this wonderful meal with creme brules. The food has been consistently good over the years and the chefs... More

My husband and I eat here at least twice a month and all special occasions when the kids are home. Nice selection on the menu, always run great specials and have an excellent wine list. The service is impeccable. Great ambiance!
