“Doesn't live up to its past reputation.”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

The new owners are focused still on raising prices but the food is just OK. There are much better places to eat for less money. Feels more like a chain restaurant now (which it is part of) than a great restaurant.

“Best seafood”
Reviewed April 11, 2012 via mobile

What a wonderful old restaurant. Best dinner I've had in a long time, salmon stuffed with seafood. Then a chocolate bag for dessert. We wanted to lick the plate, but refrained. Highly recommended.

“It's Jakes in Portland”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

For those traveling to Portland and in search of Seafood, in my opinion Jake's is the place if only for the history (opened in 1892).

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

High end restaurant that offers great food as well as service. Manilla Clams as an appetizer were well prepared. Steelhead, as well as Dungeness crabs, were excellent. Staff, from the host, to the waiteress, were excellent as well. Will definitely return!
