Eight of us ate here recently. Since they did not have a table available to handle our group comfortably, we dined at two separate tables. That wasn't a major problem, but it was a little awkward. The food was fair. I had a ribeye that was decent, but it was a thin cut. Baked potato was good, and the mac... More

My wife said her ribs were good, but the sweet potato, which she loves, she did not eat as she thought it tasted strange. I ordered the Cajun Sirloin Platter, at their recommended temperature of medium. The thickest part of the steak was medium well, leaning to well, and the rest of the steak was well done. The Cajun must... More

Stopped here for dinner on a recent evening and was pleasantly surprised. Ordered the fish sandwich...which I swear was 12" long, Haddock I believe. In fact I just finished it for lunch :) Onion rings were good too. Another family member had smothered chicken which was also very good. Service was good also, but prices are a little high for...

We got 3 orders of them and 1 each of their Rack of Ribs and a Rib eye. All of them were done perfect and in a reasonable time. We fed 3 adults and... More

We came with a large group. The wait staff was pleasant and professional. Orders came quickly and all were correct. I had steak and a baked sweet potato, both of which were excellent. My daughters ordered pasta and fish fry, which they both enjoyed thoroughly. We would definitely go back.

Went there for a banquet in the upstairs loft. The food was outstanding as was the service. The price was $16.99 for a buffet of salad, steak ,chicken, baked potato, rolls, veggie and a selection of desserts with drunks included. There is taxidermy on the walls for decoration. There is a bar that is separate from the regular dining room.... More

If you want a good steak and done the way you want it then Jake's is the place to go. They even have a salad bar if you would rather eat off of it or get a good salad to go with your steak. You don't have to go for steak they have other foods on the menue so there... More

I do not live in Wooster, but was visiting that area & decided to stop at Jake's for a late lunch, Steak was excellent, baked sweet potato was yummy, and wonderful coffee. Will eat there again anytime in that area.

This is a unique steakhouse with a hunters den kind of feel. All the food is good. Be sure to check what the specials are. Burger night is fantastic, and they always have very good coffee. The breakfast buffet is The Best! It puts the local Amish restaurants to shame. They are very kid friendly as well.
