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!

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!

A group of four of us recently selected Jake's for dining out. We were surprisingly disappointed with the poor quality of the food, the skimpy portions and the outrageous prices. I ordered a boneless rib eye, the house specialty. My requested medium steak came to me bloody and undercooked. There was also a large amount of untrimmed fat. The steak also came with only two onion rings, a skimpy salad and a half double baked potato that tasted like a reheated leftover. The filet mignon, while advertised as juicy, was tasteless. The duck was dry and tasteless as well. My wife's scallops tasted undercooked and were ridiculously small portioned. WE ALL LEFT H-U-N-G-R-Y. And these were all $25-30+ meals. This is not the Jake’s I remember from the past. What a disappointment!
