We paid 113$ for a family of 5! It's pretty good BBQ, but the price is just a tad bit ridiculous! Service is good and atmosphere is okay.

We have been coming to Jake's from PA for over 4 years and frequent trips to VAB. We liked it so much, we had them cater our day-before-our-wedding get together at the Old Coast Guard Station. Kevin and his team put out an AMAZING spread and everyone loved it (and we had some folks from places where BBQ is the... More

It was raining here in Virginia Beach and after my husband and I did some shopping we decided to try Jakes even though it was after 2:00. We drove up and saw a lot of others were thinking the same thing. The place was very busy but we were seated quickly and our meal came extra quick. Was kind of... More

we vacation in Virginia Beach every year. Several years ago we ventured out to see the surrounding area and we found Jakes. We make it a point to eat at Jakes whenever we are in the area. I love BBQ and jakes gives you large portions and great food at a reasonable price. If you are in the beach area,... More

We had been wanting to go to Jake's for a long time and finally got the chance when visting the area. Needless to say, we were not disappointed! The sweet corn nuggets are out of this world. My rib combo was very, very good and my wife's chicken plate was very well done. Excellent all the way around! We used... More

My husband wanted to get away from the Boardwalk and have a night out. We came across Jakes and thought we would give it a try. Wow, I am glad we did. Loved the design and felt right at home. I had the pulled pork with a salad and a baked potato. The pulled pork is amazing and I loved... More

My family and I had fun Virginia Beach over the 4th of July until we went to Jakes Smokehouse BBQ. Service was terrible. We went to Jakes on Sunday evening around 7:30. The place was not that busy. A party of 12-15 were ahead of us. The servers were setting their table. We were at the front counter for 20... More

This is a place we make sure we visit every time we are in Virginia Beach. Great food, servers & worth the price. A place away from all the hustle and bustle off the boardwalk. We visited twice this time around.
