Jake's Burger -
Best Restaurants in Brookfield
I came here for the first time.
sat at the "bar", just a stale feeling. In a strip mall, no character to the place at all. The bar was full of torn and "wet" paper menus that looked more like used place mats. Place was a mess. Not to mention the bar (if you can call it a bar) was sticky and wet. So I did not eat. had a beer and left. I will not go back."

We tried Jake's Burger on a
Saturday 'date night'. We had a Truffle Burger and a Port & Blue Burger. These two Burgers were worth every penny of the $10 - $11 you will spend. Nice beer and wine selections. Everything is ala carte - which makes it kind of pricey..."

We used to enjoy this restaurant.
The last two times the food has been bad and service terrible! We went with another family. We had 5 kids total with us. It took an hour to get our food. The excuse? The grill broke. No attempt to discount anything until we asked. They did cut our bill in half, but we will not be heading back anytime soon."

Interesting food selection.
Wisconsin grass fed beef is a nice tuch, though I wish I did not have to pay extra for it. Burgers are pricey to begin with. $50 or two hamburgers and drinks just seems to be too much."

We began with a reservation for 3
and then expanded to 5 (only 45 minutes prior to our reservation time) and Jake's Burger was very accommodating. We got our table promptly at our reservation time and the service was stellar! Our burgers were substantial and we ordered onion rings, coleslaw and French fries as sides to share. There were not any leftovers! This was our first time at Jake's Burger, being regulars at Jakes and our experience was fantastic. We all agreed we will return - often!"

We had a large party and made
reservations. We were seated right away. Drinks and refills came quickly. It took a while for the food to get to the table, and the size of our party may have had something to do with that. It would be great to be able to place orders ahead of time if that would help get the food on the table faster. "

This was the second time we ate at
Jake's and enjoyed both our burgers and the entire experience."

Shared a burger with my fiancé and
we were very full "

The main thing - the service and
the food - were very good. A couple of people commented about the music. It was a bit loud and techno pop for lunch time.... Even the two young people in our group thought the music was too loud. We should have said something....but we didn't."

Went to Jake's for the lemon
meringue shake, it sounded so yummy. It's off the menu! We stayed anyway and ate the burgers. One was so tall it was too big to bite. Bigger is not always better. Less meat? Beef was very good, beer was cold and delicious. Server was pleasant. Why can't restaurants provide a smaller serving for people who don't want such a large portion? More flavor, less size."
Dined on 5/21/2014
The burgers are amazing! Sides are
separate and after ordering our food, we realized most of the tables around us stuck with just ordering the burger (no sides or fries). On that note, we had left overs! The menu is very small so decision making is easy, we came strictly for the burgers so it was exactly what we wanted. We also made reservations, which I recommend because the place is a little bit smaller and was hopping when we came in on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. AND they are only open until 9 or 9:30, so this is not a good late-night find! Overall, we loved the atmosphere, loved the location, loved the food, and would definitely come back in the future!"

Great service even though they
were busy and our reservation time had been overbooked , we were offered a free drink at the bar. Burgers were delicious though be aware if you order yours medium it may be very pink/red throughout!"

Insanely delicious burger. This
might be blasphemy, but it's better than AJ Bombers in downtown Milwaukee, in my opinion."

My sister and I split a Wisconsin
Burger and loved it. We also split a small Caesar salad which was plenty enough for the two of us. She ordered a small fry, and I ordered a small order of haystack onion rings (which was definitely enough for 4 people), and took most of them home. The food was very good. I was surprised when our waitress brought out our salad with the rest of the meal instead of serving it to us first, but all in all the service was decent. "

The burgers are great! But that's
all the good, I can say. The service was slow, and very unfriendly. The girl behind the bar was rude, and the waiter we had must have been new or not trained. "
Dined on 5/3/2014
Food was excellent. Service staff
a bit over whelmed do plan extra time for lunch."

They serve very good burgers at
Jakes. I'm still a little irked they offer fries ala carte. This last visit, we found out Jake's has a reasonably priced fish fry and it was great, except for the slaw that wasn't exactly creamy or vinegar based, so no definite flavor."

Best burgers in SE Wisconsin...and
possibly ALL of Wisconsin."
Dined on 4/26/2014
Burgers were very good. Egg
ordered on the side was over cooked but server remedied that quickly. Out of alot of types of beer that night we were there...Sat. April 26. Excuse not really believable....a big crowd in the morning??? Server very efficient and nice. Sweet potato fries and stacked onion rings were very good."
Dined on 4/26/2014
Great place, reasonable prices and
awesome food! Great place for a casual dining, urban trendy!"
Dined on 4/23/2014
4 out of 6 orders wrong. Little
apology from the waitress. Burgers were just okay...inconsistent how cooked each burger was, one rare, other was close to well done... .those who ordered the grass feed burgers liked theirs better."
Dined on 4/19/2014
Food was fine but the rest of our
experience was a let-down. Cocktails at the bar were very pricey; did not have the one Riesling wine selection offered on their drink menu. Restaurant is small and very loud and hectic, with a pub atmosphere. We took our cocktails from the bar to the table. Seconds after our server greeted us, she asked if we had paid yet for our drinks! First things first, I guess. We won't be going back."

The food, service and atmosphere
were great for a 'burger joint'! Menu a but confusing and when we got our burgers, the second waitress said to all of us, "oh, you should have ordered that with bacon". So look at the options closely and don't just order blindly like we did thinking the pre-fix burgers are fine they way they are designed; then ask the staff for their recommendation! Dah!"
Dined on 4/10/2014
The mocha caramel milkshake was
outstanding as were the sweet potato fries. They were hot and crispy and slightly sweet. Yum. The Wisconsin burger was also quite good. I opted to pay the extra $2.50 for the grass fed beef. Not sure it was worth the extra cost. With the cheese sauce, bacon and onion strings it was too much to actually taste the difference."
Dined on 4/4/2014
This place had a great rustic feel
with the used wood on the walls and the glass all around made it seem open and provided a great view. Every burger that our group ordered was presented very well and tasted amazing. No let downs here. Also, Grass-fed beef is available for a couple dollars extra but that is totally reasonable and worth it."

I can not recommend the food
because we did not stay to have any. We had reservations for 6:30. We arrived at 6:20. The hostess told us we would be seated in 10 minutes. We had a party of 5. 20 minutes later we were told they were waiting for our table. The party that was there was finished but they were talking. We were offered at table for 4 on barstools in the noisey over crowdwd bar. I reminded the hostess that we had a party of 5 and we had reservations. We waited 10 more minutes and left when it became apparent we were not going to be seated any time soon because no one was exiting the dinning room. By the time we left the bar was packed in like sardines. The stand up bar we were standing next to was dirty and sticky."

The meat is high quality, you get
a wonderful choice of not so average toppings. Haystack onion rings are so good. The French fries with the beer cheese sauce is a must."
Dined on 3/27/2014
I visited Jake's Burger with my
mom and daughter. Two of us ordered turkey burgers but one was delivered as beef. Had to send it back and it did not come until the rest of us were done eating. The beef burger I ordered was raw inside and the haystack onion rings on top of all the burgers were cold. Our sweet potato fries were served warm and were soggy, not crispy. Most expensive burger that I have had lately that lacked taste and proper cooking. This is my third visit to this restaurant and it will definitely be my last!"
Dined on 3/22/2014
If you are looking for a big,
juicy burger cooked just right, Jake's is a perfect place to go. I got the Carolina Burger, which had a nice, tangy BBQ sauce and a slaw with just a hint of spice on top. My wife and I went with another couple and it was a perfect atmosphere to talk and enjoy a great meal."
Dined on 3/15/2014
They are definitely the best
burgers I've had by far. Milwaukee isn't exactly a "foodie" scene but this places feels like it came straight from one. Amazing flavors in the burgers. Amazing sauces. Very easy going place and laid back, great service!"
Dined on 3/7/2014
We were sat by the kitchen and had
to listen to the cook yell out waitress names over and over and over to pick up food. It took forever to get our food. The waitress was not very attentive and we sat for a very long time to have our table cleared and get the check. The fries were advertised as house made but were definitely frozen. The patties on the burger were so huge they overwhelmed the tasting of all the other toppings. Could barely take a bite."

Good burgers and fries. Super
filling. Come hungry."

We had a reservation for 4 at 7:00
& were seated right away. Our waitress came & introduced herself & seemed frazzled. The burgers were good though a bit pricey, the onion rings flat & soft, not crispy. Had to ask our waitress 3 times for a glass for my wife's beer & 4 times for water for our table.. Our waitress brought out 3 of our 4 dinners but not my wife's with no explanation. When I could finally get her attention, she said my wife's burger would be out shortly as the kitchen had put their special sauce on that my wife requested not to be out on her burger. I'm pretty sure we won't be going back to this restaurant."

Nothing special especially for a
place that specializes in burgers; burgers were nothing great."
Dined on 2/14/2014
First time experience. We shared a
salad (plenty for both of us), each had our own burger and shared friers. Our burgers were done as requested and had lots of flavor. Can't wait to go back and try one their other burgers."
Dined on 2/8/2014
I've been to Jake's several times,
and this was the first time I was at all disappointed in the food or service. I believe they were understaffed, so I'm giving them a pass, but our burgers were all cooked at least one level more done than requested and the bartender asked me to order a different drink when she realized she'd need to cut an orange for my Old Fashioned. Then she offered to make my vodka tonic a double for no extra charge, but turned around and charged me anyway. The food was still good and the service was still friendly (if frazzled) and prompt. I love this place, so I have my fingers crossed that they were just having an off night. The Wisconsin Burger is heaven in a bun and I love the atmosphere."
Dined on 2/4/2014
The grass fed beef is great. I had
the classic and by wife had the Cali. We split an regular order of onion rings. I would suggest getting either fries or onion rings, but not both."
Dined on 1/25/2014
I had a reservation for 4 at 6:45
on a Saturday. Burgers were fabulous - and large. I would recommend this restaurant. Only two things that could have been better: 1. We made a reservation but were seated at a hi-top in the bar area. Not a problem since the restaurant is really small and the bar stools were very comfortable. I can't gaurantee that my mom would have appreciated that though - fortunately she wasn't along. 2. Because we sat in the bar, we had a bartender instead of a waiter/waitress. Could have been better service."

Our family really enjoys this
restaurant - from grandma to the kids. Terrific food, nice atmosphere, a cozy, comfort place."

We arrived for a 7:30 reservation
at 7:15 and were told it would be 20 minutes before our table was ready. We waited as others that arrived after us were seated and an empty table right next to where we were standing sat empty for 10 minutes while we waited for another table to become available. Since we had 2 hungry children we were about to leave when we were told our table was ready! Our server was very attentive which made the experiece eaiser."
