“The BEST Ever!”
Reviewed July 29, 2009

If you're looking for a great steak in a great atmosphere, Jake's is a MUST. The ambiance, waitstaff, and food are all beyond words. My husband and I continually save our pennies to visit this restaurant and usually make it there twice a year.

Our personal favorites include the "Bubbling Crab Dip" for an appetizer, as well as the "Hill" of Onion Strings. Their steak is amazing, not to mention the amazing "au poivre" option. Nothing but the best. Have visited more expensive places and still would much rather go to Jake's.

Can't wait to go again!

“A true Goldmine!!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2008

My fiance' and I have eaten at Jake's several times now and each time, it has surpassed our expectations! The atmosphere is PERFECT, the wait staff is always VERY pleasant and knowledgeable, and the food is to DIE FOR. We are both huge fans of steak and consider ourselves somewhat "experts" on a good steak. Their meat is always cooked just the way we like it and I love their pepper-crusted option. Last time we were there, we both had two of their martinis--amazing--and their crab dip for an appetizer. While yes, it is somewhat more expensive than your typical sitdown chain restaurant, it is more than worth it. We just stash away a little money every now and then so that we can afford to treat ourselves! Thank you Jake's for giving us something to look forward to and a great place to take out-of-town guests!

“Simply Fantastic”
Reviewed February 15, 2008

My fiance and I went to Jake's for Valentine's Day, and we couldn't have gone to a better place. It has a great funky/retro style that really appeals to the 20 and 30 somethings but also makes an older crowd feel right at home. I tried one of their infused martinis-pear-and it was full of a real natural flavor and devoid of the harsh bite that many martinis have. We both had the filet mignon medium, and it was like a little slice of heaven. Everything was so great there; we can't wait to go back!
