Tasty steaks!

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.

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

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

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 had...

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
