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

If you are in Mt. Vernon and you'd like steak, this is the place to go.Order the NY strip steak, it's delicious. Another little aside about the people who work here and eat here; they are friendly. We had just driven in from New York and I suppose a lady in the parking lot must have noticed our license plate.... More

Every time my Husband and I go to Jakes we have a nice time. We rarely have to wait for a table, the service is always nice and prompt, and the food is very good. I would say that if your looking for a great steak house in Mount Vernon Ohio this is the place to go.

It's much better than a chain restaurant. The food was well prepared; comfort food describes it best. The service was friendly and attentive. We felt welcome and were well taken care of.

This advertises as a casual steak place but it is really a bar with good bar food. Enjoyed the food and the service.

It's a bit pricey for what you get, but they usually have good specials. Service is good. Bar area is nice.

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
