If you have a food product in the name of your establishment, shouldn't that be your strongest offering? There's only one "crawfish" item on the bar menu and it's awful. It seemed more like rock shrimp than crawfish (heresy to us southerners) and the breading for this "popcorn" version was thick, greasy and completely overwhelming the contents. Both the ambiance and service were mediocre. Perhaps the dinner menu or the sister restaurant can redeem this review, but I would not waste any time seeking this out.

Great seafood, other dishes and dessert! Not one person in our party didn't enjoy everything. Highly recommend for people looking for seafood in Portland.

The service clearly wanted to be somewhere else, anywhere but making coffee with a couple of old people. ie: over 40.

Jakes was old-school eating. It was nice with friendly service. The seafood is fresh and yummy. Much of it is brought it that morning and the menu tells you where it came from. Enjoyable, but a bit more spendy than some other places.
