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

As our local restaurant critic does, I try to dine at a place three times before passing judgment. Unfortunately I can now say Jake’s is overrated and over priced. The good: Very attentive, personable servers and bus people who made sure water glasses are promptly re-filled. A reasonably priced wine list with many choices. Their signature haystack onion rings are... More

Visited on February 8, 2014 for dinner after a family members funeral. Jake was kind enough to open for us ahead of normal business hours due to the occassion. We were there at 4:15ish. Walking into Jake's, it reminded me of a cozy, up north supper club. The bartenders were great. My problem (even a day later), was the hostess'... More

Enjoyed very nice steak dinner with friends on New Years Eve. Bar was closing before midnight and it seems the bar tender was cleaning and couldn't wait until we left, Goodness it was new years eve. Staff was friendly but not very fun.
