“Service, location and convenient...”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This place has become a ritual for my brother and me. While I've never had a bad meal, it hasn't been anything to write home about either. It's more the service, location and convenience than anything (thus the 4 rating). I usually stick with the turkey reuben - but the burgers look good, as well as the wings. There are always people here and the drink deals look good as well. We will continue to stop here - it works for us.

“Great for Out of Towners”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

In town early November and looking for a place to try some new brews and found Charlie & Jakes. The sampler had at least 12 beers and the meats they smoke onsite were the perfect pairing for beer. If you like hoppy beers you will be in heaven but if you don't, the selection might be limited. One in our group did not drink beer and there was a full bar at her disposal. One of our group had the all you can eat chicken lunch special and loved it. The rest of us had a bar-b-q sampler and was more than we needed for lunch but delicious. This place is worth a chance and better then the usual chain bar-b-ques.

“Irish Coffee and Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Can't speak to the food served here although there's always a good number of people in the restaurant. Typical wings, BBQ chicken, burgers, wraps and such. We usually come to Charlie and Jakes for an Irish Coffee or an after dinner drink before turning in for the night. It's a sports bar - with all sorts of unusual brews of beer. I'm not a beer drinker but this is SUCH a friendly place. More often than not the owner is there with a smile and friendly chat. And BTW, if you want an Irish Coffee... here's the place. Giving it 4 stars for the Irish Coffee and the amazing staff.

“Tuesday Night Specials always fun.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have been going for years and members of their brew meisters club. Enjoy having my own large mug waiting for me with a choice of brews. Back yard burgers, tomato basil soup, and numerous sandwiches always enjoyable for a local pub. Very accommodating with large groups that seem to keep growing. Great staff, never rushed out even at closing time.
Our Tuesday night tennis teams relax and visit after evening matches.

“Alright. But needs some help.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We go there with our tennis team once a week after the match, for a drink and appetizer. Drinks are fine. But appetizers/food is hit or miss. The usual greasy pub grub. But it is really nice to have a fried buffalo wing appetizer to share. How can you go wrong with this? But, surprisingly, C&J isn't even consistent with a basic fried appetizer that is pre-prepared and frozen. I have had good boneless buffalo (and non-boneless) there; and horrible ones. As in stale, they were made two hours ago, and the chef has just retrieved them from the corner shelf. Gross. If I weren't tied to the tennis team, I wouldn't bother going. I am going to try to convince them to try another place! Beer here is alright as is a basic selection of wines. Their desserts seem pre-prepared and too rich. I did have a good sandwich there once, and their sweet potato fries are decent. They just need to work on becoming a little more consistent.
