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

I went here with a culinary club, this was my first time here and they definitely delivered. We had a soup, haystack onion rings, tomahawk steak and more. The spoke to all of us and it was very enlightening. I had the impression that the chef would rather be known for their steaks over their haystack onion rings...both were great... More

Wow! I admit I was not expecting a great meal, but we did. The scallops, walleye and snapper were beyond expectations. Loved the stuffed dates and the squash soup made the meal complete. Add in excellent desserts and it was an unexpected delight. So good and dinner under $200 for four. Did not expect such outstanding food in Brookfield Wisconsin,... More

Likes- filet, served perfectly medium rare with a crust on the top, enough onion rings for four people and tiny sautéed mushrooms that are a must with this steak.

Visited Jake's a couple weeks ago in a Friday night. We weren't sure how busy the place gets so we made reservations via opentable. Easy and they were able to accommodate 7pm which was perfect. Jon arrival I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed, I was expecting the place to be a little nicer given it's location and... More

We always have reservations on Monday for the main dining room (other room we call the riff raff room). Tina was our server and treated us to the best homemade hot bread in Wisconsin. Then the special- a nice filet, prepared exactly how I ordered it, and a mountain of onion strings. Good selection of wine, great service, but, oh,... More

Jake's is always a real treat. But the Monday evening pricing on their filet cannot be beat! For under $11 you are able to savor this tender piece of beef along with haystack pinion rings or a potato selection. But you have my highest recommendation to also savor their bacon wrapped dates, which are out of this world. You will... More

We had not been to Jake's in years. It was a hang out of our's a while back. While they don't serve their signature Pepper Steak anymore, we did find some new items to order. We had the Pan Fried Panko Crusted Walleye and the Steak Trio....three 3 oz tenderloins: Oscar Style, Blue Cheese Crusted and Peppercorn Crusted. Both entrees... More

We returned to Jake's where we have dined for nearly 40-years for a dinner. I'll keep the review brief. While the service and the majority of the food was good and up to the standards I have come to expect from Jake's, my wife's entree, braised beef was terrible. It essentially was fat with a few pieces of beef. We... More

Jake's is way overrated. The prices are high and the food is mediocre. The atmosphere is dark and uncomfortable. There was air conditioning blowing so cold it felt colder inside than the outside temp of 37 degrees. The menu has rules - either 2 side or a salad. The plates are huge with small pieces of meat and no other... More
