We had dinner here and drinks for my son's birthday. It was good food and good drink specials. We had a good time.

Jake's is a typical fun college bar. It is abundant with flat screen TVs. There is ample seating. There are always beverage specials. The prices are good. They have special nights like Euchre or Trivia nights. The menu has bar food including wings and sandwiches. They prices are good and the servings are plentiful. It has a friendly atmosphere.

Jake's is a good college bar, Spartan accommodations but lots of cold beer and reasonably good food, within walking distance of campus. My favorite is the chili-- thick and meaty, with optional sour cream it goes great with a brew. A fun place at Purdue.

Our sandwiches were excellent (tenderloins), and the service was fast. We visited during Purdue winter break, so there were few customers at the time. We'd been great fans of the former Jake's at Lake Shafer, and we didn't expect such a large restaurant at West Lafayette. We plan to go again.

My colleagues and I frequently visit here. We bring potential candidates here as well. Good sandwiches, salads, and sides.

This was my 2nd time eating at Jake's and both visits I have ordered the chicken quesadilla - it is delish! I also asked for a mixed drink recommendation and the server brought a 'fruity pebble' which was very tasty! Would definitely choose this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff!

I have only gone there for lunch. Fast and friendly. food good, prices not to bad for lunch time. Family are welcome until evening when it turns into a bar (over 21) I have not been there in the evening, but my daughters tell me they serve free popcorn and hotdogs with your alcohol.

Went here with some friends for lunch for the first time on Friday, the service was super quick and our server was very friendly. I had the cheese pizza and it was pretty good, my friends had the southwest chicken calzone and the buffalo chicken wrap and they both really liked them. The vibe was really relaxed and our drinks...
