Pass by on occasion (20 minutes away) and kept telling my wife we should check it out. Saw it featured on DDD and made a point to visit. This place is a quaint little dive, which we love. However, they are trying to be a...More

Stopped in today for lunch and it was nothing short of perfect. I had the combination Po’ Boy. The fish cooked to perfection and the garlic mayo was just enough! It’s a drive into a rural oasis at Jake’s.

My husband and o have been coming here for 2 1/2 years. Staff is always very friendly and the food has never disappointed us. I like everything but I especially enjoy the Blackened Flounder with grit cake, Flounder sandwich or the pork chop dinner.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, so our expectations weren't high. However, we were delightfully surprised! The building is a renovated gas station with rustic, eclectic, nostalgic decor. The food was high quality, well-seasoned fare. The menu features elevated southern cuisine including...More
