Great place for Sunday brunch

We had not been here for brunch for some time. We were glad to see that quality had not slipped. We had the Tuscan egg dish and Tinga chicken omelet. Both were very flavorful. And the fresh biscuits were a treat. Service was good, not perfect. All-in-all, still a great place for brunch.

Stopped in here, with some work associates, for breakfast last week. Service was terrific, tables were very nice and private, setting was very good. Order was taken very promptly, with our meals showing up at our table very quickly. I ordered the basic breakfast, bacon and eggs, and it was prepared perfectly. I enjoyed all aspects of my breakfast, including... More

When you pay $49.00 for a steak it better be good. We agreed we could have got a better steak at Shari's. The food was cold, the meat tough and tasteless. A big disappointment.

I was in the mood for an iceburg wedge and found one here. Perfect amount of blue cheese dressing (not the bitter after taste hat some blue cheeses have), chopped tomatoes, onions & bacon. Very nice portion for $8. Highly suggest trying. Fast & friendly service. If you thought this review was helpful, please click the "yes" button below. Thanks... More

I was a bit disappointed at Jake´s. The interior signaled classic steak house. The menu as well. But the service and the food was a bit too lazy. The steak served like we were at some warn-out motel diner. Almost cold, definitely not juicy, and supported by some tired fries. And the server far to arrogant for my style. Therefore... More

Was there for a 2 day business meeting and had lunches and diner on site. Staff is extremely nice and helpful, do its best to make your life easier. Food is very good though not original as you might expect in this kind of place.

Great spot for Happy Hour in Downtown on a rainy evening. Drink prices are good and Happy Hour food menu is big and diverse. Lots of choices, even vegetarian ones. Portions are large and prices inexpensive. Service very nice. Good design with high ceilings and wood paneling. Great re-use of an old building.

We had lunch here today, and liked it so much we've planned to return for supper. Lunch included a walnut & pear salad, Italian sausage amariciana (sp?), and cabaret beef ragout dish. All of these were wonderful. We also had a Haystack, a delicious appetizer of onion strings (the best onion strings we've had so far). Food and service were... More
