Very Good Food & Service!

I only rate this a 4/5 due to my comparing it to another local BBQ joint... I would have liked to give a 4.5, if the option was available.

Our family group enjoyed the tasty BBQ at Jake's. Dependable quality. We like to take home the bottled BBQ sauce. I wish we lived closer 'cause I'm sure we would visit more often!

Jakes has a casual atmosphere and very good food. Their BBQ is almost as good as Kansas City BBQ. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. The service was very good and the noise level was relatively low. I plan to visit this restaurant again the next time I'm in Va. Beach and am recommending it to my... More

My family and I celebrated my birthday at Jake's. The food was good, but the service was lacking! Side salad was promised by the waitress before the meal which came with the meal. Instead of allowing the ribs to get cold, the salad had to eaten last. After asking if we needed our water refilled, it took her 20 minutes... More

Sunday evening we were on the beach late and didn't feel like cooking our planned meal when we got back to the campground so we decided to give Jakes a try...boy am I glad we did!!!! We were told about 15 minutes wait and were seated... More

The reviews for Jake's Smokehouse failed to warn you that as soon as you get near the door you will be overwhelmed (in a good way) by the succulent smell of real smoked meat! Oh yeah, it was good. Very good. Downright delightful! We ordered the Family Feast and an order of the Sweet Corn Nuggets It was all top-notch,... More

Went with party of 17 and service was just as good as the food. Brisket was some of the best I have ever had and dry rub wings were tasty. Our large party had a great time. Highly recommended

We ordered the family feast for 4 at Jakes and what a feast it was. Ribs, chicken, pork and brisket. The meal came with BIG bowls of cold slaw and beaked beans. A Huge basket of french fries and it must have been a loaf of Texas toast. Enough for all 3 of us and the take home fed us... More
