Visited Jake’s for a business dinner - oysters were fresh and delicious and rockfish was a tasty main. Great ambience in a restaurant with a lot of history.

This place has very good fish and steaks. The quality is good and the price is very good for a first class place. The bread is also good. All the seafood is fresh. This is a land mark for Portland.

I have had lunch here, two times, recently. Both times I ordered from the lunch menu. All options are delicious and especially the fish dishes. My husband and I prefer to eat here if we happen to be downtown in the early afternoon.

Another lovely lunch at Jake's Famous Crawfish—piping hot, tender oysters in creamy, tasty soup; delightful seafood salad, sole with capers, seafood fettuccine, generous portion of salmon on Caesar salad plus refreshingly original lime-cucumber lemonade. Impeccable service. Last Sunday we spent twice as much money elsewhere...More

Maybe it’s just me; but, I am not feeling all the hype about this restaurant. While it has a great ambience; both inside and outside seating, and the service is good, I just didn’t feel the hype with its food. I recently had the opportunity...More
