My husband and I live a block away year round. We love going to Jakes! Although we do not frequent here regularly (living in Cape May county ...There are loads of great spots to eat) every time we go there the food is good. Service is great. It's consistent. The place could use a mini make over but I think... More

Not impressed with the service. Definitely better places to eat in the area. Also no baked potatoes.

Jake's is as "upscale" as you will get in this working-class community. The owner is also the chef so you rightfully expect the food and service will be good. On two recent visits I had clams casino (highly recommended) and a Caesar salad with shrimp. The shrimp were a nice size. A few days later I was back for the... More

We discovered Jake's several years ago and always enjoyed the food. For some unknown reason, we stopped going there (probably because there are closer restaurants to where we stay in Cape May) but we decided to stop in on our first night in town and we're so glad that we did! Service was top notch. My husband and I are... More

Ok. We order drinks and apps first. They came at a reasonable speed. However, when ordering our food the salad took 35 min... SALAD?! Then after another 10 we asked if there was a problem with our order since the salad alone took forever. The waiter (who's approximately 78yrs old) said no problem we all ordered stuffed salmon n a... More

First ate here while house shopping. My Son-in-law pointed out that a full parking lot on an off-season weeknight meant the locals really liked the place. He was right. I had the best Roast Pork ever, and have continued to return whenever I want to take friends out to eat. Food is wonderful and the prices moderate. Jakes is the... More

Our favorite friday nite haunt after a long week. Large circular bar with great friendly staff. The dining room is casual with 3 sections. Great variety of choices and sandwiches. Open for lunch and dinners daily. On sat eves there is an awesome prime rib entree to die for but go early as they sell out. It is very popular.... More

We always kick off our guys shore weekend at Jake's. It's a great atmosphere, good food, and friendly staff. They're always accommodating as members of our party roll in as they arrive in town. Wait staff is always very friendly.

First time to eat at Jakes and can't wait to go back. Sat at bar to wait at table, everyone was friendly and with all the games on it was pretty quiet. When we sat at the table we couldn't even hear anyone from the bar area. We had the prime rib. It was fabulous and at a reasonable price.... More
