2 for 1 drinks at the bar. Really good food with soup and side included. Salad and soup bar only $1.99 additional. Smaller size entree available. Cozy and friendly and attentive service. Highly recommend.

I thought I would try something different so I tried the "mango Shrimp tacos". I couldn't even finish one of them. They arrived in an oil soaked flour tortilla with plain cabbage at the bottom with brown pieces of avacado. The shrimp were the small ones you'll see at the salad bar and they were placed over the plain cabbage and brown avacado. The shrimp tasted as if they had been boiled for hours and had no flavor whatsoever. To top it all off, the mango pieces on top of the shrimp were waaay past their prime. And the rice that came with the dish had its own skin holding the gelatinous clump in one piece. Suffice it to say that I will NEVER go back to this restaurant EVER and I recommend that you stay away too!! TERRIBLE!!

Thank you for having come into Jaker’s and for leaving this review. Reviews such as this help us pinpoint areas of improvement and can really improve the overall quality of our restaurant.

We are very sorry to hear that your Mango Shrimp Tacos were prepared and served the way you describe. We look to serve only the finest food with the finest ingredients to our guests. This obviously was not the case in this situation.

Since this review was made, we have made some positive changes to the way we prepare and serve food from our kitchen. We would love the opportunity to show you these changes first hand. We hope that you will give Jaker’s another shot in the near future.

Sincerely,

Jaker’s

very good food. A little pricey but they do have half portions which help make it bearable. Our waitress was a bit spacey.

The Atomic Iced Tea is worth the visit alone, but otherwise felt like I was ushered back 15 years in time. Decent atmosphere and decent food. Above average for local eateries, though still doesn't give much to boast about...

There is always some local talking about how good this is. The food is passable and it looks like a 1990's applebees exploded in there. I would pass on this and go to a beer pub instead.
