Our group booked a Monday night for the specials. We were twice promised the group room, only to find it was taken and we were put out in the noisy communal room. We endured a 3 hour meal, with no coffee or desserts. When it seemed that the main course had to be on the way, our waitress disappeared for... More

We have wanted to try Jakes for many years. Decided to for my birthday with my wife to have a great steak. Ironically, the mushroom soup I had, the french onion soup my wife had (may have been the best ever), and the Halibut my wife had were excellent. The NY Strip stake was average (I consistently get MUCH better... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It's consistently great! Food & service is always wonderful, without being "snotty". Jakes is one of the last privately owned nice restaurants in Brookfield. It's the best place to go for a peaceful dinner. A bit pricey for some, but well worth it, for service, food & atmosphere! ☆

Our first time at Jake's and we were very happy with our burger selections and the fries. We had the Carolina Burger that was served with a Carolina style bbq sauce and a Truffle Burger which was a bit messy to eat but very good. The fries are simple and 'I believe' fresh cut. Jake's burgers are better than most... More

The food is good - the service is good - just don't bother to write to them on their website as you will never get an answer - not exactly good customer service....

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years! I tend to eat steak when I visit, but have also enjoyed a variety of specials including fish and seafood dishes! I have also enjoyed several desserts, especially the creme brulee'. Try it, I think you will like it! I have never been disappointed! Please let me know if this review... More

We dined this evening with a group of 11. I had gone online and perused the menu and had decided on an 8 oz filet. When we ordered I asked for it pink and warm. Waiter said that would be "medium". When I received it , it was definately rare. I returned it. When I got it back the 2nd... More

Ate there with another couple a few months back and had just the best meal. The prices were fair for what we got, loved the atmosphere and cannot wait to go back! We are still talking about it to anyone who will listen!

We decided to go to Jake's for Valentines Day (it was the first place we met a year and a half ago, so it was sentimental) with the understanding that we were sure it would be really busy, and we were ok with it. We had reservations for 8:00 and checked in about 7:45. They said they were running about... More

This is the first time that we dined in this restaurant, I had always heard great things and I can honestly say that I did not go home disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxing . The large fireplace and wood trim has the feel of lodge. Very nice. The wine selection is good and fairly priced. We started our meal off... More
