My wife and I have gotten tired of spending $50 on dinner and are currently trying to find a place that is worth our time and money. We visited Jakes on a Saturday about 430pm a week ago. I have come to the realization that most every restaurant is the same old experience because they all have the same vendors.... More

Never had a bad meal here! On our list for when we trek out in this cold weather. Menu is good, service great, atmosphere super! We always enjoy dining with friends here for Sun breakfast after church , appetizers, evening meal. Take out is great. My granddaughter worked there and the management is excellent!!!

It took us two visits to get our first meal at Jakes on Gull Lake - the first one was on a day they were closed. There are a group of 5 of us who dine out for lunch on our birthdays and this was one of our best! Food was excellent, service was excellent and we all look forward... More

Honestly I've been here about 10+ times, but got the fire-grilled chicken ciabatta the majority of the time. I love it too much to try anything else. Large portion sizes and great serving staff. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.

We ate here twice in the past week. The first time my husband and I had the seasonal strawberry spinach salad with chicken. It was excellent and fulfilled our wish for dinner. The second time, our daughter in law ordered the same item and the chicken was overdone/dry. Our son's fish and chips was barely edible. My chicken chop salad... More

We have always enjoyed our meals at Jake's, sometimes it's just appetizers, sometimes burgers. Always pleasant wait staff. Only problem is the place has low ceilings and tends to be loud. Food is good, soups and salads generous and tasty.

We came here 2 nights in a row because we really loved the view and the atmosphere and the food was really good. I REALLY loved their Fish and Chips and Walleye sandwich. You get huge portions and their french fries are really thin and perfect. None of my group was very impressed with our specialty drinks...between us, we got... More

We've been to Jakes once a year for the past 3 years and I could be mistaken, but it seems each time we go the prices are higher. Eating cheap this year cost about $15 a head and eating well cost about $30. The fries were so greasy I left them on my plate. The tacos were good. The salad... More

I was extremely impressed with this restaurant! The decor and patio seating were excellent. We came at a busy lunch time and had great attentive service from the docks to the table. My friends played a little bean bag on the beach while we waited and the waitress was always ready to get us another drink. The Tuna appetizer was... More
