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!"

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."

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."

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!"

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."

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!"

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

Burgers were excellent. Staff was
friendly and took excellent care of our table, both at the bar and once seated. Thank you for a excellent night out. Will make Jake's a regular stop."

Was there for lunch with a group
of 5 last Tues. I live in the area & frequently visit. Never been anything but delighted with JB. However, this lunch hour was uncharacteristically off. Everybody has an off day which I understand. I think this just happened to be one. I have always had the Jake's burger & decided to try the turkey burger as a change. Unfortuantely they ran out of turkey burgers & it was only 12:30. Then they ran out of iced tea when 3 of us were having it. Finally our foood came out which seemed like it was sitting for awhile. The onion strings were not crisp and most of the food was cold. I attributed this to the scrambling due to running out of food. Staff was accomodating & very apologetic about running out of items."

Very fun menu. The onion rings
were phenomonal! I had the fish burger which was a little tough though. The others in my group had regular burgers and said they were good. i would go back but would skip the fish here. Buns were yummy!"

First time there. Burgers are very
good. Noise level is a bit high. I rated it very good but on a burger joint level. Fine dining it is not. We will be going back again."

A great meal even though the
kitchen wasn't as on spot as usual. Outstanding service and great staff! Always a pleasure to dine. Even on an off night this stuff is fantastic."

We had a very enjoyable time on
our first visit to Jake's Burger. We went on the recommendation of a family member and were not disappointed. The restaurant was very clean, the service was friendly and fast, and the burgers were delicious. We will definitely recommend Jake's Burgers, and we will definitely be making return visits."

Thanks Jenny! A new staff member
who was quick, attentive, friendly and fantastic. Food was great on this night. Prepared at its best - a good night in the kitchen."

The service was very good. From
the minute we arrived to our way out the door everyone was friendly. I ordered the Wisconsin Burger that was beyond outstanding....the presentation was gorgeous and it was very tasty. It was the best burger I have had. I went there with my sister who ordered a burger with Bleu cheese & Port Wine onions. She had them put the onions on the side, which was a good idea because they were very strongly Port flavored, which; for a person that really likes the port flavor this would be a good choice. Unfortunately there was practically no sign of the cheese. My sister described it as an uneventful burger. I will dine there again."

Milwaukee area for sure"

We enjoyed the delicious burgers

Disappointed in food this time.
Been before and it was excellent. Fries were cold. Hamburgers not cooked the way they should have been. Will try again. Must have had off night as usually so good."
