Jakes is always good but last week it was tremendous. We took family and all of our food was spectacular. The staff is always so friendly and the food comes out quickly. You can taste the freshness.

This is one of those restaurants that has a nice location but not much else. It was, however, a nice night out when I visited and so the back patio was a nice place to eat. I tried the seafood fra diavolo; it was satisfactory. Service was also fairly average. No real complaints but I think I'd rather spend my... More

Compensatior reading some of the reviews I was a bit leary but, having had two good prior experiences, decided to have a third go-round. It was a perfect day for lunch on the river, to celebrate friend Jane's birthday. Initially there was a mix up with our orders, which were then re-plated and returned. We found this totally unacceptable, but... More

I visited Captain Jake's for lunch on September 15th before catching a flight home. I ordered the cod fish sandwich, which I could have had fried or broiled. I elected fried. The portion was huge, enough really for two people, and the dish came accompanied with a generous portion of french fries, a small cup of cole slaw, and sliced... More

They take reservations for outside dining where some of the others on the waterfront don't. Small place, but the food was very good. We were surprised to see live music on a Sunday. We will be back!

This place used to be great, and I love giving kudos to great establishments. I've written positively about this place before... But something changed last year, and ever since the food is marginal, and service terrible. I live local and been here various times of the year, and various days of the week. Lately always the same. Poor. Too bad.... More

This place is really, really B A D. We were greeted cheerfully by the hostess as we entered and only needed to wait about 7 minutes for our table. We were escorted to a table in the patio at the edge of the canopy with a sterling view of the river however my wife’s edge of the table was wet... More

We took a friend here last night for her Birthday. She had been here previously, we had not. She had mixed reviews from her 1st visit, but wanted to give it a second chance. We got there on Saturday at 5pm and sat inside because they said the patio tables were booked. No worries. We sat inside and ordered drinks... More

We have been here a few times. I have even brought the CEO and Regional manager here for dinner and drinks, that's how much I like it. The lobster bisque is great! So are the lobster rolls. I've also enjoyed the scallops, can't remember if that was a special. Great staff, always very helpful. The dirty martinis are pretty good... More
