I've tried Jakes about 4 times over so many years. Every time I went the food was average at best. I've heard that their food is good so I kept trying but with the same results. The last time I went was particularly disturbing though. There was a smell that seemed to be coming from the hallway where the bathrooms... More

Jake's Steakhouse in Mount Vernon, Ohio is one of 3 Jake's in north central Ohio. (The other two are in Wooster and in Ashland.) We have eaten only at the Mount Vernon location but have been there more times than I'd care to count. If tonight's meals are any indication, Jake's just keeps getting better and better. In the past,... More

Good steak and pleasant atmosphere and staff. There isn't a lot of places in Mount Vernon to go out to eat, but this is where I would bring my visiting friends for a good steak and pleasant meal.

I have been to Jake's probably four times. The first time in 2008 was wonderful. Good food, great price. Then every time after that it went downhill. One time I found a hair in my sandwich. Another time the salad was old. I kept telling myself maybe they had a bad day. But after three bad visits, strike - you're... More

Best service at the bar. Nice daily specials. They treat you like family. The menu is quite varied. Good appetizers.

Great burgers, steaks and good variety. Warm décor, if you like dogs and hunting. (Yes, there are stuffed heads and a canoe on the walls.)

My bf and I were in town for his work training and went looking for a place to have dinner on a Sunday evening. The first two places we tried were closed. Right after leaving the hotel my boyfriend said "what about Jake's" as we drove by and I told him it had mixed reviews. After disappointingly finding that the... More

This place was awesome! Best steak, salad and potato we've had in a very long time. Over and above even your "high end" steak houses. The staff was friendly, the wait was only 5-10 minutes. We are sad we live 4 hours away or we'd come back over and over.

Our food was excellent! The fried mushrooms are still the best! The restaurant was a little dated, but the food was good and the service was very good.

My family of 5 chose this restaurant on a Saturday night after going to the theatre. First tip off should have been how dead they were, being it was Saturday, all decent restaurants are busy and can be difficult to get into. Instead we went in and ordered our food. Long story short 3 out of 5 of us had... More
