My sister-in-law chose this place because she had a craving for the loaded nachos and a margarita. We were seated quickly when we arrived at 6:15 on a Monday. Our entrees arrived at 7:40. It took a while to get drinks. My husband and brother-in-law each chose a glass of beer. I stuck with water, the beer list was very... More

Jake's is a local favorite...I posted a review a few minutes ago that was dropped ?? It does have a bar atmosphere, but good food. They have great stuffed broiled shrimp and the locals love this place. Get out of Cape May City and enjoy local food. Local folks won't even go into Cape May in the summer due to... More

We decided to visit Jakes for lunch based on a recommendation from a friend. Wow! We ordered the Seafood Combination and were pleasantly surprised. Consisted of a broiled filet of flounder, 2 scallops, 1 large shrimp, 1 nice sized crab cake and 1 deviled clam. First bite of crab cake had some shell in it which is always a good... More

Food is ok but waited 25 minutes to be seated. Sandwiches were fine but my husband and I both asked for an order of fries to go with the sandwiches. I was given 12 fries on a small bread plate and my husband had a few more. We hoped that would not be their full order of fries without the... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Cape May went upscale and designed for the night life. It was a pub with good food and a relaxing ambiance. Jake's was recommended by a young woman who had given us great local places just outside of Cape May. On a hot July day, we went to Jake's. A very relaxing place full... More

I'm not a snob, and we are locals and have family in the villas. There a few things that a restaurant must do to be good: good service, good food, good atmosphere. Jake's has 2 out of three. The service is spectacular, and if you go, ask for Bill. The atmosphere is typical seashore decor, straight out of the 70's.... More
