Quick dinner at bar while on a business trip. Had the fresh wild halibut with a horseradish crust with a side of drawn garlic butter. Delicious! People around me ordered from the happy hour food menu, and I realized that was probably the better way to go if you stop in during 3-6 pm as the food looked delicious, and were huge proportions. Mussels in butter and garlic were delicious as were the pot stickers.

Service was a bit distracted at first, but when a second bartender came on, it greatly improved.

Had dinner at Jakes. Dropped in late around 9 PM on saturday night. Valet directed us to an empty free parking spot near door. Very friendly polite staff. All were great. Table right away. Really nice atmosphere. Good advice about menue items. Had the Mussels, Chowder and Sturgeon. All were excellent. Others had Salmon also excellent. Not Cheep with wine and starters
bill over 200 for four. Left feeling it was well spent.

Always great and never better than on St. Patrick's Day.

The food is still great, the staff very knowledgable, helpful, and charming. The food is still outstanding.

The front bar is still as lively as ever.

While walking overthere a was approached by at least 4 beggars/ drunks, so the entrance to the crowded and busy restaurant was already pleasant. Hte waiters were all a little older but knew their stuff. Food quality was a pleasant surprise, nice menu with lot of choices and fresh fish. Good portions and sidedishes. Would come again when in Portland !

Wonderful lunch today at Jake's. The crab cocktail was divine!The cocktail sauce is so yummy. The crab was very fresh and tasty, although the pieces were very small. I had a crab and shrimp louie. It was nicely displayed and was just the right amount. The service was great!
