The restaurant has good choices of meals and beverages. The food is delicious and of good portions. The bar side can be noisy. They have an outdoor patio overlooking Lake Cowichan. Good services, and parking is available.

This restaurant was one of our favorites. Every meal was cooked to perfection and the price was not too expensive for a family of 3. Great ambiance, great vibe, service was spot on. We will miss this spot to eat on the lake.

We heard that Just Jakes had opened a second location in this area. We really wanted to try it because the location in Duncan is very good. The pub over looks the lake where tubers embark on their floats. We arrived on Fathers Day. It...More
