“small portions of mediocre food at a premium price”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

The only reason this place gets 2 stars is because our server was really nice and the place is nicely decorated, We should have chosen someplace else for our seafood splurge. We were there for lunch and we were looking for some decent seafood. We had the fish and chips, 2 crab cake sandwiches and a caeser saiad. The crab cake was tiny and the bun overwhelmed it, There was just one piece of fish in the fish and chips that was on par with the famous fast food fish and chips place. The caesar salad was just lettuce and dressing with a couple of croutons for 9 dollars, The fries were pretty good but overall, it was a spectacularly mediocre lunch and we spent 65 dollars on it. We will never go back and we will never recommend this place. There has to be seafood place worth a splurge in this town but this place is not it..

“Good, but not great”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We decided to try Jake's based on a recommendation from my father in law. We weren't terribly impressed. Portions weren't terribly big, especially for the price. The food was okay, but not as good as we had hoped. It's not a place we plan on revisiting on our next trip.

“Jake's at Rehoboth”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Excellent crab cakes and really good service. It gets very crowded in summer and on weekends, but is worth the wait. The food is excellent and after dinner there are many great shops you can walk to if you eat at the smaller Jakes's in downtown Rehoboth. There is also a larger one on Coastal highway. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who really loves crab dishes!

“decent and friendly”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Food was pretty good, a bit on the high price side. Service was right on, our waitress had our drinks ready before we asked. The chowder was really tasty. They offer fresh seafood, clean dinning room, friendly waiters. Looks very upscale but a great place to eat with a family.
