    A surprising find in an area where all the chain restaurants can be found. I was dining alone and sat in the bar area, which has many TVs and thus a sports-bar feel. There was a second level with more tables and a small outdoor patio (which wasn't open at the time). Food was good and not expensive. I had the Fish Tacos. No complaints there! If I was visiting the area again, I would definitely return.

    Good food, Good service, Good band. Some of the patrons were a bit suspect. Don't know if I will go back ...kinda of like a thirty plus pick up joint. But the food, service and band was amazing.

    We have had better experiences at Jake's. This was an off night as I had to send my dinner back because it didn't smell right. Our server took it back without question and I ordered the ribs which are always great. The band wasn't to our taste either but they were entertaining to some of the crowd. We'll go back another time with our friends.

    Great place for the "older" crowd. Live bands every weekend get the patrons dancing and singing. Food is great.

    We have been going to Jakes since we met in 1993 and just love the place. The food and service are consistently great and the atmosphere is just a party waiting to happen! Do yourself a favour and check this established hot spot!

    The food was OK but there was surprising little seafood. The decor felt like we had stepped back into the 80's.

    The place is a nice party type bar/grill. We were able to book through open table, unfortunately, after we showed up, and they had us in the computer, we were told that there was no table for us, and that they were fully booked. We had to sit 5 people at a high top bar table, and had to out in 45 minutes. I would not recommend booking through Open Table.

    If you like pub type food in a bar like setting this one is for you. A good guy or sports team spot for a burger and a beer. I reserved through "Open Table" which normally has a much higher calibre of food/restaurant in its listings, but this one was the only listing for Brampton where I needed to be.

    Amazing bands! Great service and a fun place to wind down after a long week. I do the finger foods rather than a meal and there is a great selection and they are all very good.

    Newly updated bar area highlights this Brampton mainstay where regulars frequent. Service is paramount and the reason for this 30 year success story. Food is great, upscale pubfare featuring specialty nights like Rib Monday's and Wing Wednesday's. Also one of the very few venues in the Brampton area for live music and dancing Thursday through Saturday evenings.
