There is confusion over the name of this Manayunk/Philly eatery -- the menu states its name as: "Jake's and Cooper's Wine Bar," -- but there is no confusion of the quality of the fare. Pleasant Main Street location with large fresh-air view on the day we visited, nice wine list and extensive beer selection, efficient service, very good food. Can run to the expensive side of town but worth it in our estimation. Grilled octopus salad was pretty much perfect and everything else real good.

It's a while since our last visit but we enjoyed it just as much. We mentioned to our friends that we live Americn crab cakes and they immediately responded by saying that we must go to Jakes. So, off we went Manayunk to Jake's for lunch and crab cakes and we were not disappointed. A good time was had by all at a fair pr ice as we chose from the very reasonably priced lunch menu.

Jake's has always been a favorite for us when we go to Manayunk. Four of us went there recently for dinner.

The room was attractive and reasonable quiet, since it was about half full on a Sunday night. All of the dishes, salad, pizza, crab cakes, etc. were good to excellent. The menu was lacking a vegetarian choice.

The waitress was knowledgeable of the menu, wines and beers. However, our entrees were brought out while one person was still eating his salad.

We were able to sit and talk for a long time after finishing,

There is a small parking lot nearby if you are not able to get a spot on the street, which is usually the case.

My wife and I enjoyed a dinner of hamburger and pizza on Saturday. The hamburger was cooked to perfect and the beef used was excellent. The parmesan cheese french fries delicious. The pizza was also a standout because of the blending of the cheeses.

Service was attentive, but not intrusive.

On our first visit to this funky, fun neighborhood, we walked by this restaurant at lunch time and ducked in. Glad we did. They're interesting menu could easily accommodate my gluten-free wife. We both went with salads. She had the Tuna Nicoise, with some of the freshest, most perfectly seared tuna I have tasted in a long time. I couldn't resist choosing the Grilled Octopus salad. The seafood there was slightly on the rubbery side. But it had a nice char. And the greens on both of our salads were farm-fresh, with dressings that displayed a light, subtle touch in the kitchen. Oh, yes, the wines. We both had light summer whites and they were delicious, although the 6 oz. pours for the price are a tad stingy.
