We have been to Jake's many times and we are always amazed at the delicious food we receive . . and they will try to honor any request you may have regarding your food and the way you like it cooked and served. I especially love their seafood fetticcini but I will say everything is very good!

I have been to this establishment one 4 different occasions and every time I have waited at least an hour to get my food. I am done trying, I will no longer be a customer.

Had a sirloin cooked to perfection and my husband had a huge prime rib. Both cuts were excellent and cooked as ordered. A really nice atmosphere for young and old. Nice staff, pleasant and on point. Golden potatoes were very good and the house salads were good portions, with lots of added ingredients. Prices were reasonable too!

This was a perfectly serviceable steak restaurant. Nothing out of the ordinary, just good basic steaks and such. Service was friendly with a good attitude. Only odd thing was that they did not have a list of wines and beer served.

We played golf nearby on July 4th and went looking for some place open for lunch (that wan't a chain). Had never heard of Jakes, but they had a good selection of burgers, pretty good Reuben sandwich, OK salads. Like being able to patronize someplace that is not the same chain offering you find everywhere.

This place has my favorite burgers in town. Great place to unwind. It is a local favorite for families and friends.
