Saturday Night Dinner at Jake's

My wife and I are long-standing patrons of Jake's Restaurant. We had memorable dinner recently. I had the Squash Soup garnished with chanterelle mushrooms, and the Ceasar Salad. My wife had the haystack onion rings, which are a must for the true Jake's experience. I had the Crispy Roast Duck... read more

It's been here forever and still top notch. From the cocktail hour to the excellent steaks and hay stack of onion rings.

Steak here absolutely excellent - along with all entrees we've had. The service excels and everyone always loves dining here! Well worth the visit; be patient and wait as this restaurant is frequently full. You won't be disappointed you stayed to enjoy the food!

The steaks, the vegetables, and the sea-food were all delicious. We have been to this restaurant many times, and have never been disappointed. The service is friendly and professional. Add to this: a very good wine list. What more could one ask for? This restaurant has been our "family get-together restaurant" when I am in the area. And will continue... More

Jake's is our "go to" steak joint due to location and never disappointing steaks. The appetizers are creative, fresh and always varied. Waiters are friendly and keep the meal moving without intruding. We always enjoy ourselves.

I love Jake's. The service is consistently excellent. The food is consistently excellent. The wine - be sure to check out what's on tap - is always great. And the atmosphere can't be beat. Inside is cozy, the bar is friendly, and the outside patio is quieter and romantic. Love. It.

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
