“Jakes is one of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We started going to Jakes when it was in Mt. Vernon. Very pleased when Jake's came to Wooster.
Great for burgers at lunch. My father had a lunch fish sandwich which took up the whole plate. I have no clue how this man finished the whole thing.

Sometimes we splurge and get the onion ring appetizer, onion bloom? Bring lots of friends.

Decorated with theme of Jake, the owner's dog. I do remember vaguely seeing something written or a picture that was somewhat derogatory but otherwise being a dog owner, am pleased being surrounded by pictures of dogs and pleasant pet owner sayings while munching on a yummy hamburger..

“Stand behind my original review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Just read the other less than flattering reviews about Jake's. We have had nothing but good meals at this surprisingly good restaurant. We dine out often and enjoy fine dining so we have always been surprised at the meals we have there. Let me clarify that our first visit was unplanned as we were returning home from Columbus and decided to take the 'old' 30. We were hungry and decided to give it a try cuz we couldn't wait until we got to Canton. It was a huge surprise and has warranted our return visits several times over the past few years when we wanted casual family dining. Truly surprised and sorry the other reviewers had negative experiences ~ we've had nothing but great meals.

The steaks are not the greatest...just ok. The Tuesday halfprice burgers are wonderful...we go often for them!
