“Oh woe is me...”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

...as a childhood favourite no longer remains a great experience. 20yr ago, there were only 3-4 family orientated steak houses, and Jake's was king of the hill. Great steaks, perfect ribs, etc. the year's 2012 and while the food's similar, the game has truly moved on. To compound matters, various fine dining restaurants serve superior steaks and ribs at HALF the price nowadays. Cynthia, the owner; remains a welcome presence but the place is in need of an overhaul. Lots of people still seem to rate it, though.

“Steak your claim”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Decent selection of steak cuts and cooked just how you ask.. makes a change for most places. The service was above average, especially on a busy Saturday evening with no prior reservation. We got stuck sat by the table near the door, but was able to move just after placing our order and a table came free. The sirloin was juicy and the tenderloin was thick and tender. Not so keen on the small jacket potato, but overall was definitely worth it.

“Always so Juicy..”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

we always save Jake's for special occasion because it is a special place. When we think of steaks, we think of Jake's. I like the decor too. feels like a cowboy joint.

“Old school but consistent”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This restaurant has been around for over 20 years, and although the menu has stayed the same (more or less) so has the quality. That's what customers want - decent food without surprises!
