When we come to Chicago we always stop here. Good service, bar food and cold beer. Lots of TV's to watch your favorite game. We love it! Thanks

Picked this place based off wing review and food selection. Located in great area for more walking. Good food, filling, and appealing for site. Service was great as well. Thanks GM for information and table visit! Will return.

We have eaten here several times and will return for the great food and beer selection. The only downside is that the staff could be a little friendlier. We have been here with friends and our family and always feel that way when we leave. The service is good, just rarely given with a smile~

When I asked at my hotel reception....'who does the best hot chicken wings in Chicago'...they just laughed and replied....that has to be Jakes... AND BOY WERE THEY RIGHT! The establishment itself is very welcoming with large numbers of craft beers on tap. Also a great venue to watch sports. The booths are comfy and easy to chill out in. BUT...lets... More

After trying two pizza places with long waiting times we ended up here. At first there appears limited ambiance but as soon as you are seated things are perfect. Very nice beer selection and really great food. Jake’s jumbo tenders were simply perfect and so was the pulled pork; the fries were the best I had in weeks. And prices... More

Stopped in her for a drink and ordered some food. Neat place good beer selection. Ordered Street fries, oh yeah! and a Chinese Chicken Salad (Yin & Yang) both were amazing. I would go back really enjoyed the place, busy but seated relatively quickly and the food came quick the server was fun.

We ate at Jake's in a private room. The room was packed and the staff was attentive even though it was hard for them to get around. They offered typical pub/sports bar food - wings, burgers, dips, flatbread pizza. The prices were moderate and portions were large. We loved the homemade chips and flatbread pizza. The nachos were ok. They... More

A colleague and I visited during a business trip (which just happened to be during the World Series). All of the inside tables were full with Cubs fans so we sat outside which was fine. There is a amazing craft beer list (though pricey) and a nice variety of bar food. I ended up ordering a brisket + pulled pork... More

Dropped in for a beer and battered pickles. 5 hours later and the Cubs first world series in 108 years, great time and food. Perfect sports bar environment. Thanks, to our server, Cammy for a great evening.

If you like wings this is the place. Great sauces and meaty. I can tolerate heat but the triple X is beyond my capacity. They also have monthly Mac and Cheese specials each month that are out of this world. Wish I did not have to drive to the city just to eat there.

Thank Staple9
