Jake's opened in July. It has a stellar position on the lake with an expansive deck overlooking waterfront. The food was served promptly and was delicious. A welcome addition to the town!

Affordable quality food in a great atmosphere. Highly recommend, especially in the summer sitting on the deck.

We have a place on Lake Cowichan and like to go out to eat once in a while. This year Jake's On The Lake is the new kid on the block. We have eaten there 5 times this summer and had something different every time, and have enjoyed it every time. The staff is friendly, the food is tasty and arrives hot (this is actually not as common in restaurants as one would think). Nice deck to sit on when the days are warm and inside is clean and pleasant.

Took the family for Sunday dinner. The food was delicious, the views gorgeous and the service attentive without being over the top. Highly recommended.

On our first visit to Lake Cowichan, we decided to try "Jake's at the Lake" for dinner. We got there midway through a Saturday evening, and when we walked in, the place was hopping! Our entry point was in the bar area, so it was noisy. I wasn't sure if that was what I wanted for our dinner ambiance, but the hostess pointed to an adjoining room, which was quieter.

Service was reasonable, considering how busy it was, and our server brought us the gluten-free list of choices. She was also very helpful to give us information about ingredients and the restaurant's practices. I decided upon the Blackened Snapper and my boyfriend ordered the Bayou Chicken. We were both delighted with our choices, excellent flavour, portions and presentation.

We ordered a Sicilian pizza with a gf crust "to go" for our lunch the next day; it was fantastic!
