Watch for the specials and try to beat the crowds. Beer selections are usually good, service fine, comfortable and busy place.

Jake's is a restaurant that serves various entrees from burgers, steaks, and ribs to various pasta dishes, etc. It is what you would expect from a restaurant like this is a town the size of Mount Vernon. It isn't anything special, but a good place to grab a bite to eat from time to time. Jake's is typically packed on... More

Pizza was out because Ron's is closed on Monday so we decided to go with takeout from Jake's. Wr got the appetizer sampler and steak salad medium rare to... More

This place is no better than Ponderosa that preceeded it. The waitresses are nasty, sarcastic vipers. The management is null and void. The food is sub par. U can get a better burger next door at Wendy's. Seriously. And Wendy won't give u any attitude. Save your money. Half off burgers? No thanks. More nutrion in a junior bacon cheeseburger... More

Since the two good restaurants in town were closed for the Thanksgiving holiday, our options were pretty limited. My husband ordered the prime rib and said it was the worst he's ever had. I had the sirloin steak and left more than half of it on my plate. Disappointed that the wine choices were "red or white."

We have given Jakes multiple tries and each time has been disappointing. So many people like this place and the parking lot is always full, so we continued to give it chances. The food is average at best. Over time I've had a burger which was a grey, lifeless, flavorless meat patty that was probably from GFS and looked as... More

This restaurant has an excellent selection of menu items. One of the best sandwiches is the Ruben. I have had this type of sandwich in many states in many eateries but Jakes does it best. The prime ribs and soups are excellent as well. But on Tuesdays all there burgers are 1/2 price. They have over 10 hamburgers selections to... More
