Always Good

We get to Jake's a few times a year, (wish it were more) and every time we go, we are never disappointed. On our last visit this week I had the mushroom soup, the scallops with a side of their awesome mushrooms and a side of the Brussels sprouts. My son had a steak and baked potato, my husband... read more

Jake's is an old fashioned steak joint that is simply terrific and a throwback. The ambiance is wonderful with the old wood and the bar area is just superb. The fare is wonderful. A nice variety of steaks and the appetizers are stellar. We had the staples of bacon wrapped water chestnuts, wild mushroom soup, crispy beer battered fish (Friday... More

I've been going to Jakes (initially at a different location) for about fifty years. The prices have changed a lot, but the quality has never faltered. I really believe they have the best tenderloin steaks in town, The atmosphere is casual but classy. I hope to keep going there for years to come,

Monday is tenderloin special night at Jakes. When in town we wouldn't miss the beef tenderloin with a side of the best onion strings in Wisconsin. The place was mobbed with a huge party so it was noisy times three! We had a reservation and were seated before we could order at the bar. Steaks done perfectly but the onion... More

PLEASE! Those negative reviews may be customers who are never happy. I am also a native Milwaukeean who ate at 60th and North Jakes and loved it. This Jake's is just as good, the onion straws are the reason we travel 1300 miles to eat here, the bartenders always try to please the customers and the mushrooms are fantastic. Mondays... More

I had a business dinner at Jake's on a Monday night. Some people in our party ordered the steak special. I'm glad I didn't. They brought it out on a huge plate all by itself. It was very small on the huge plate. I think all the other entrees were overpriced. I think everything about the dinner was just average.... More

I had a Monday business dinner at Jakes with 6:30 reservations for a group of 10. The first surprise was the parking lot was completely full and we had to park on the street. Upon entering at 6:15 I saw that the bar was completely full as was the dining room and left us to stand waiting by the front... More

Friends of mine love to dine at Jake's which has a warm, friendly, supper club atmosphere. I met them for Happy Hour one evening. $5 wines and perfectly cooked crispy bacon wrapped water chestnuts were ordered along with a cheese plate that included a variety of delicious cheeses. The bartenders were full of personality and definitely made the evening. I... More

We were here for a team dinner for work. Eight of us total. The service at the bar was not good. They took drink orders for some of our group then just walked away. Drinks were made wrong 3x. One bartender was in a visibly bad mood. We were seated in our own little private room, which was nice. Our... More
