I enjoy lunch at Jake's Grill whenever I'm in Portland. It's got a beautiful old wood decor, a nice bar with friendly bartenders, nice private tables for four along the window and private rooms for larger parties. The food is excellent, especially the always affordable Daily Special. Much of the best menu items are only $8 - $15 and would... More

Absolutely beautiful woodwork, lighting, bar area and murals-stunning atmosphere. Loved the service, the seafood, even prepared a Brandy Old Fashioned Sweet-muddled! for me to enjoy with the dinner. Incredible historical building that highlights what Portland was and is.

Last Saturday evening three women friends and I enjoyed a delectable dinner at Jake's Grill....quintessential Portland. Two of us ordered steelhead and the other two of us had stuffed salmon....everything was prepared perfectly. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We had a window seat which provided a delightful view of the ongoing parade of Portlanders out walking, enjoying the... More

Jakes Grill has a great variety of fresh seafood with fresh daily catches. Halibut is a favorite, especially during the season. I went with the horseradish crusted steelhead and it was very good.

We have been going to Jake's for over 20 years mostly when family members are back in town. 7 of us went to dinner Saturday and to a tee all were disappointed with the service and the food. The funny thing is nobody said anything until later because we all assumed everybody else was happy with their meals and service.... More

We sat at the bar and had a great time with Gene the bartender. He gave us a history lesson on Jakes, made great drinks and made sure we had a fun time. The happy hour food is fairly priced and good ad well. We did no try the restaurant but did go back to the bar and had the... More

I had been to Jake's years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I felt like I came to an upscale fast food restaurant. I ordered a glass of wine and my meal at the same time thinking I would have a little time to enjoy the wine before the food arrived. Nope. Everything came real quick and all at... More

The restaurant is very fancy but unfortunately the food did not quite match expectations. The staff are professional but not hugely engaging or personable; it was clear that they were more keen on selling their specials than interacting meaningfully with their customers. The salmon salad was good, although it was drenched in dressing; the sausage and chicken rotini seemed a... More

Jake's Grill is always ready to go out of their way for customers. If it's your anniversary or birthday, they'll make you a special menu for the occassion and seat you wherever you request. The steaks and seafood are delicious and the restaurant has a nice old charm atmosphere.

The location from down town is easy to get to and the steaks devine. The old motel it is located on with its Art Deco murals and heavy wood panels takes you back to the 20's. The old lighting and Draped tables take second place to the killer food !
