Classic food will not disappoint

We wandered about the food truck block that is kitty corner from the restaurnat. It was a hot day and nothing there appealed to us. I guess we wanted somewhere to sit, eat and cool off. We saw Jakes and decided to give it a try. We were seated at a window table and it was fun to watch the... read more

Called for reservations just hours before arriving on a Saturday night and still got a window seat. My wife and I split the porterhouse, and could not eat it all. It was really good, just a tad overdone on the thinner filet side, but very good flavor. Also had a shrimp cocktail with beautiful, flavorful prawns. And, their wine pours... More

The best salmon luncheon salad ever - freshly grilled and served on a bed of wild greens. Subtle dressing and reasonable priced.

We often have lunch at Jake's after a visit to Powell's book store, as they have a varied, well-priced menu - even a "blue plate special." It is in an old turn-of-the century building with a nice bar, overlooking the busy food trucks. Though service was good, this time our food was not: the shrimp and Dungeness crab salad was... More

Jake's Grill was incredible! We had a melt in your mouth steak and I had a decadent beef stroganoff paired with the server's recommended red wine. The décor is very charming with that nice 1920's feel of elegance. Wonderful service with a romantic setting!

Food was delicious and service was exceptional. Highly recommend. Crab and lobster dip was excellent as was the stuffed salmon and filet mignon. Yummy!

The food is basically the same as at Jake's Crawfish, but the atmospher is more elegant. We met a close family friend and had a booth with a street view, we went early and made a reservation. It was quiet enough for a good visit, the food was fabulous.

I wish I knew how long this place has been there, but it feels like it has been there for a very long time. They know how to do it right here. When you walk in the atmosphere is just amazing. Tall, tall ceilings, animal heads, dark wood, dim lights, wait staff in white jackets, black ties. It brings you... More

We had lunch at one of the outdoor tables. The lunch selection was great with salads and sandwiches, as well as full-plates. My Crab Louis was excellent. We previously had dinner indoors, where the atmosphere is "old Portland," with great seafood selections.
