“In the Aggregate, Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Jake's has a nice buzz, background music that is not overbearing, a very comfortable outdoor seating area, better than average food and prompt and friendly service. No complaints here, it's a keeper. With no pretense, good diner comfort and with very reasonable prices it warrants a "very good" rating.

“Great food, lively ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

This great little restaurant is managed by on-site owners Mark and Bruce and we noticed many local and enthusiastic diners. (Jake is actually somebody’s pup.) Atmosphere is lively and friendly. The food is excellent. The Chicken Marsala and Baby Back Ribs are favorites. My wife enjoyed her Jake’s Wedge and we both loved the coconut cake dessert. The calamari starter is popular but we found it a little chewy for our tastes.

“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Well, where to begin? We have eaten here several times over the years they have been in business, and it is without fail always been a very enjoyable visit. Coowners Mark and Bruce always make you feel special when you show up. And our favorite waiter, Shaun always has a welcoming smile and quick wit and great service. Chef Mario is always coming up with something new and wonderful. We had a joint anniversary party there in October for 48 people and they did just a beautiful job accommodating that many people. Everyone was raving about it for days after.

“Beautiful courtyard with moonlight and stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Loved our dinner at Jakes!
The staff is fabulous - so welcoming and friendly! We had some great cocktails to start, and enjoyed an amuse bouche of ahi tuna - a delightful bite of freshly prepared seafood!
The lamb is not to be missed if you like rack of lamb - the eggplant tower has lots of reviews and rightly so - it is delicious. Save room for desserts, the cakes are moist and dense and the frosting richly sweet. Try the daily seafood special - this time it was sea bass in a nut crust - perfectly prepared.
Make a reservation and sit in the courtyard - enjoy a special meal at Jakes!
