Jake's the True Taste and Ambience of South Jersey attack the Shore

Jake's is on a dark road in the heart of the Villas, and may be difficult to find unless you are looking for it. A parking lot full of pick up trucks told us we had most likely found Jake's even before we saw the sign. It's where the locals comes to eat and drink as noted by the banter... read more

I value food preparation, and Jake's has the right ingredients. Order from the bar menu, or dining room, and you will have properly prepared fresh ingredients, served at the right temperature on REAL PLATES. Cold draft beers to wash down great wings and tavern style sandwiches like you remember , but can't seem to find anywhere now. Owners are on... More

Great old fashioned seafood house down the shore. I heard the chef/owner cut his teeth at the Lobster House, well he sure does as great job a Jake's. The food is delicious. They have a large dining room, huge bar, outdoor seating & waiting area. We really can't add to what others have already said so "Just Piling On" Keep... More

My husband and I had dinner here tonight. I had the most amazing swordfish with the chef's special sauce. Outstanding for $19 which included a salad and rolls. My husband had the prime rib and he said it was so tender he could cut it with a fork. Also $19 with a salad, baked potato and fresh green beans. They... More

We never miss Jake's when we are staying Cape May. One of our favorites! Everyone enjoyed their food! It was hard to choose because everything is very good. My ne clam chowder was the "Best" I have ever tasted, honestly! I have to get the house salad dressing recipe, it's soo good! We never had anything there that wasn't good.... More

This is another recommendation from the locals in Cape May. We went there tonight and again were not disappointed. We had a 15 minute wait to be seated. A very good menu and specials were available to us. Our waitress Bernadette was very helpful and enjoyable even though she was busy. We had homemade crab cakes which were delicious no... More
