“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

This was like a snack bar/diner atmosphere but with exceptionally good food that seemed really fresh for a reasonable price!

“Seafood First Timer, Now Lifetimer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

I NEVER liked or ate seafood before I went to Jake's. I was on vacation and wanted to start eating seafood and was told I needed to eat at a "shack, somewhere near the coast". Found Jake's on a google search while here and the food was delicious!! I was able to sample a variety of their seafood offerings, as I was with my family, and I enjoyed the taste. The batter used to fry the fried foods is high quality and contributes to the taste. It was also not overwhelming, which can detract from the taste of the actual seafood. I have never had fried seafood since Jake's, however I now eat seafood (grilled: shrimp, crab, mild fish, lobster) regularly as a result from my positive experience at Jake's. If I return to Maine, I will return to Jake's

“Good lunch”

We went for lunch today and ate a sandwich and chowder. It was very good! The staff was friendly and I noticed a young staff member help bring an elder her food at her table. Warming environment

“Highly Disappointed with Breakfast!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

My husband and I have been coming to Jake's for breakfast for years when we come to Maine on vacation. Usually the food is very good, with a healthy portion size. However, this morning we were very disappointed with breakfast. I had the Jake's special. The eggs looked like they had been sitting, the bacon undercooked, the grilled blueberry muffin was OK, but cold as was the entire meal. The home fries and eggs were cold. My husband's cheese omelet was not much better and his home-fries were cold as well. We waited for about 1/2 hour to get our meal. To add insult to injury, the portion size had reduced significantly. I feel like I should have sent it all back, but did not want to wait another 1/2 hour to eat. Unfortunately, I think it is time to find another place to get breakfast!

“Satisfies my rare craving for fried seafood very well!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I only eat fried seafood once or twice a year. I rent a beach house close to Jakes and when the craving pulls at me, I will often head to Jakes for fried fish, shrimp, clams and onion rings that are outstanding.

They are open some days in the "Shoulder" season and that suits me well since I do not visit Maine in summer (I have no patience with big crowds with children). I keep meaning to try them for breakfast. Also...seems like their parking lot is very full when they are open in the slightly "off" season and I see lots of Maine license plates...so...locals go there. Good sign! ;-)

Very friendly service...clean...close to all the hotels just north of Ogunquit and south of Wells.
