“Excellent food and service at this Northwest Fish House”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Lots of wood, old pictures of the Columbia River Valley made for a nice traditional northwest atmosphere. The fresh fish menu was vast and prices were ok and not out of range of other comparable restaurants. Food was cooked just right and served pleasantly. Nothing real flashy but carefully and simply prepared. Try the northwest chowder before your entree. Service was attentive, friendly, helpful and excellent in every way. Many wine options. Did not have room for dessert but they looked good. Convenient downtown location within walking distance of major hotels.

“Jakes”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

If you consider eating as an experience this is not the place for you. It is a large restaurant. The food is average more like a restaurant which is turning table. It is not like you are rushed but the food kind of dull. The server was pleasant.

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Jake's is an experience you should not miss. Great seafood but the service is old school as is the atmosphere and décor. A little on the pricey side but quality is good.

“I'm ready for an institution...”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

In some towns there is a place that you go into and think 'old school' but in a good way. This is one of those places, something that is hugely rare on the West Coast of the US. The service was good, if not exceptional, while the food was sublime. The atmosphere and experience however was what made the night special.

Good food, great company and a wonderful vibe. Certainly a place I'll go back to.
