We've been to Jake's several times and never been disappointed. The menu has something for all and the food is good. Great place for couples, families, dinner, and drinks.

Rainy day at Jake's. Immediate seating on the patio. Food is consistently decent at all the Jake's location. The Gull lake venue is a fun smaller version of the other Jake's. Try the lobster tacos for a different spin on Tex-Mex. Servers and crew here always friendly and attentive.

I've eaten here twice, both times I had the cowboy steak. First time it was cooked to order and was fabulous. Second time was raw - I like medium well. So could be hit or miss depending on the cook staff.

We went to Jake's for dinner. We have herb roasted chicken and steak. It was one of the best meals we have EVER eaten. The staff was wonderful and we will definitely be back.

Jake's has wonderful food and a few times a year they do brunches for Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day. It has a comfortable atmosphere and nice employees. It is one of my favorite places to eat.

I love this place. The food is awesome. I had the pita chips and artichoke dip. They are to die for. The wood fired pizza is the best ever. The staff is always a good time. It will not disappoint! Can't wait to go back.

Jake's consistently serves good food. Staff people are very knowledgable about the menu and if they don't know answer, will find out. Have several gluten free people in our group and have never had a problem with any meals for them - we go quite often, too.. Can be a bit chilly temp inside and outside dining is always nice....
