“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Bar scene...just okay food, nothing to write home about..typical burger, fries, beer, and too expensive for locals...but that's the Vt. way..make it while the snow is there...

“Not the place for dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Maybe this would be a good spot for beers and lunch but I would not return for dinner. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and not a single person enjoyed their meal. Service wasn't great either.

“Something New”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Typically we head to the Manchester area to eat dinner but decided to try someplace new and went to Jake's. No one was in the restaurant when we arrived (after 7:30 PM on a Thursday night) so we went to the tavern area. The bartender provided us with menus and told us the specials for today were cheese steak or cheese chicken sandwiches with fries for $6. We were sold. He joked around with us while we were deciding on drink orders. We found out he was from southern New Jersey.

I ordered a bowl of lobster bisque and the bartender said it was the best. We joked saying we'll let him know because we make it at home. I have to say, he was right it was pretty good. It had a very silky texture but I said it could still use a touch more sherry jokingly. Two of us ordered the cheese steak sandwich, one had the chicken cheese sandwich and the other had a bolognese sauce with penne. The sandwiches were delicious and the fries were fresh cut. The bolognese was delicious and we ended up taking some of it back with us.

Would I go back again ? Absolutely and maybe next time we'll get the name of the bartender.

“Very good and predictable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We had a great lunch at Jake's again this New Years. There are choices in the area but not many; the greeting always not "warm" but food and service was good.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Come here!!! You will not be disappointed! We visited last year when on a ski trip, and twice during this years ski trip. The crab cakes are AMAZING! All the food we have had here has been top notch. The service is great. Everyone is so kind. The best place to eat in Londonderry. Go!
