We hadn't got a reservation, so went along early, at about 8pm to make sure we got a table. having read the reviews on TA about large portions we shared a starter of potatoe cakes with Apple - surprisingly delicious - and...

Knockworst, Bratwurst, sauerkraut, red cabbage, german potatoe salad. Sliders, schnitzel and pretzels. Had the nibbler combo with knockwurst and bratwurst with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and pickled red cabbage. Excellent. A few beers and pretzels... More

We had a nice family meal on New Years Eve. The staff was very attentive and right there when you needed them. The food is a step above usual Pub fare. They did run out of the House Signature beer that night (at 6 PM--bad planning on their part) but they do have an excellent House dark selection as well.... More

We enjoyed the Old 'Pubby' Atmosphere...with its Very Long Bar...huge variety of beers On Tap...and many 'mismatched' tables. And the German style menu offers Very Yummy Choices. The History of Jake Wirth's is really worth a read. Please give this Olde restaurant which serves ALL levels of society a try...smile..

I like the locale with all the history. They get a lot of tourists, so it is understandable, but the service feels 'hurried'. The menu is always the same, which is either good or bad depending on your perspective. I like having go-to items on the list. The beer list used to be better in my opinion, but there's always...

The place is adorable and tons of beers on tap--service was poor. Our waitress brought the wrong beer forgot the soup and never checked in with us. She was busy but we are easy to please. I doubt I would go back.

I have been to Jake's many times for lunch as well as dinner. Don't come here for health food and don't expect anything fancy. This is a down to earth honest place that serves old fashioned German style food. Lot's of (excellent) sausage based dishes, most come with really tasty potato salad (not to be missed) and there is also... More

Good food and great history lesson. Tried some of their signature cocktails and caught a football game. Friendly atmosphere - nothing fancy.
