My party ordered the crab cakes, fish and chips, and lobster roll. The fish and crab cakes had a better than average portion of seafood versus breading which was exactly what we were looking for. We're from the Midwest where the crab cakes tends to be less substantial with more dressing and breading than meat. The lobster roll was nice and chunky, not shredded or minced where you can't enjoy the lobster flavor.

While this is not the best seafood I've had, it's definitely worth trying and has nice surprises.

I grew up in Hull and this place has long been a local favorite. Now an out of towner, I bring my family here when we are in the area. The seafood is always fresh and the atmosphere is friendly and fun. If you can, go for an early lunch or dinner to avoid a wait and less hectic dinning room. Overall I would recommend for any seafood lover to check Jake's out.

This is not the best seafood place I've eaten at, but it is consistent and good. If you ask what is local and fresh rather than ordering from the extensive menu you'll be rewarded. Fried seafood is not overly greasy. Sandwiches can be great!

Townies and tourists alike love Jake's. It has a huge selection, great seafood and unpretentious atmosphere. The waitstaff is generally comprised of local high school/university kids, and service is usually friendly yet hectic due to the large volume of diners. They don't take reservations, so expect to wait in line for a good 20 minutes, especially on weekends. As much as this place is tasty, it's not the best choice for a romantic dinner -- you'll likely be surrounded by large families with squirming kids or loud groups who are a bit tipsy from having beers out on their boats. Great portions, super fresh seafood, perfect end to a beach/boat day.
