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

Arrived here with friends who frequent Jake's on a weekly basis. We had a little wait, but when table was ready on a busy Friday our waiter was very friendly and knew my friends. He even knew what their likes were. I was fascinated. Our order consisted of fried Flounder, Broiled Scallops and mine was Flounder Francais. I was really... More

We stumbled upon Jake's while furniture shopping and were quite pleased. Everyone was ultra friendly and helpful. The food we ordered was delicious and we can't wait to go back again soon.

Much more than expected! Many years ago ,before the current owner, I came here for lunch and it was nothing more than a bar with food. The first thing that I noticed when I walked in with my wife was that it is laid out like a restaurant with multi-level seating and decorations which give it a "home-like" atmosphere. The... More

We've eaten at Jake's many times in the last several years, Great Prime Rib, fantastic Cosmo's. This past weekend it was like it was a different restaurant. The portions were definitely smaller, The salad would fit on a bread plate. My friend ask for mustard for his hamburger, sorry NO yellow mustard. My piece of chicken on the Chicken Franchise...

My wife and I eat here often as it is one of our favorite places to grab a decent, inexpensive dinner. Service is always good and the portions don't leave you hungry.
