Etouffee at Jakes

Great lunch menu. Crawfish etoufee is pretty darn good. Best Republican venue in liberal Portland. Reasonable prices. Old time atmosphere. Good, friendly service.

We had both lunch and dinner here. The menu is extensive and most of the meals were good - the beef tenderloin and salmon salads were excellent, the steaks were delicious and the molten chocolate pudding was divine. The chicken caesar salad was a bit dire - a mountain of cos lettuce with some chicken and parmesan - no egg,... More

Found this place by accident and glad we did. Four of us enjoyed a Sunday breakfast/lunch in the gorgeous dining room. The room oozes old school class & style. Our server, Michael, was friendly and attentive. Our food was perfectly prepared to order. Highly recommended.

This is a Portland institution: a huge and busy restaurants, with various choices of sitting, outside and inside in different rooms and an army of busy servers. I was eating at the bar and I had the opportunity to see a variety of offering going by: all appeared perfectly grilled and presented. I had local oysters, a salad and a... More

Just made a quick business trip. Walked up to jakes grill as it was close. Have been there two dozen times at least. Sat at the bar, but for the most part it was very slow. Service was okay, food was okay. I think in Portland okay is not up to par today. Better options, and this was the grill,... More

I would highly recommend Jake's for a great happy hour dinner. They have fantastic burgers for less than 10 dollars. The atmosphere is always great- there is a light buzz but never too loud that you cannot hold a conversation. The seafood is delicious here as well. Service is great as well.

We ended up at this restaurant after trying to get into a few other more expensive places, and we were pleasantly surprised. I had the prosciutto-wrapped pork chop which was AMAZING, and my husband had a delicious salmon dish. Our food was so good that we had to have dessert, which was just as good. I was really surprised that... More
