Have visited Jake's twice in the past six months and not once has anyone not had a delicious meal. They have a great selection of drinks too

We needed to pickup something quick before heading out of town and were looking for pub food. We were blown away by the selection of items, portions (really you could share) and the service was great as well. Would recommend to anyone!

We had an excellent dinner, great outdoor eating experience, and friendly staff. The mac n cheese was to-die-for! Will definitely go back!

The onion rings were good - with a slight kick to them. The beef brisket was good - but the sauce was slightly salty. My pulled pork had some fat - which wasn't that appetizing. Our waiter was good.

We enjoyed the PB and J wings, traditional wings, and bbq nachos. Great variety of craft beers on tap and a fun atmosphere.

We had the wing combo and pig skins! Fabulous! Great selection of craft beers to help calm the spicey tastebuds. Big portions and great prices. I would definitely come back here.

We love this bar! They have a huge variety of beer on tap and in bottles. The wing flavors are unique and interesting. Give them all a try. Don't miss out.

Came here specifically for wings, ordered three types; PBJ, Poncho, Strawberry BBQ and Firecracker (a Thai type), all were very good. They offer 50+ draft beers. Plenty of flat screens with sports playing. Service was very friendly and attentive (his name is JR). He also gave good guidance on what to order. Sat on closed in patio which was a... More

Pros: Poncho wings were the best wings that we have ever had. Our waiter had a great personality, very helpful and was thoughtful. He gave our tired crying two year old gummy worms. It was a very nice gesture and de-escalated the our toddler. We had the nachos, Caesar salads, homemade sausage, salami pizza, kids Mac n cheese and Wings.... More

The lights (for ambience) was best part. Food was okay (one of us had Cobb salad...was huge and pretty good; other had Fish & Chips... good, but have had better in many other restaurants). Mixed drinks were extremely watered down. Asked waiter to separate checks... he didn't. Otherwise, was friendly.

Thank Ron K
