  • "We were unable to eat at Jakes because there was a power outage. Of course it wasn't their fault but we went to Vino cappacino instead. Wish we could have dined at Jakes. Had a birthday coupon but it expired so it might be awhile before we can go back again."

  • "This has been our second time dining on a Monday. The 1st. was to celebrate my father-inlaws birthday and my own birthday. The second was to celebrate my mother-inlaws 86th. Birthday. On both visits we had Dawn as our waitress, what a lovely, wonderful woman she is! She always has a nice smile on her face and is VERY on hands with us on both visits. Our food was excellent, both times. We are looking forward to returning soon. The Birthday dessert was out of this world, with those pieces of toffee in with the ice cream, delish!"

  • "To While food is top notch, drinks are pricey, restaurant is noisy and service was slow. Overall experience was very good, however, since we were in no hurry."

  • "This neighborhood gem always has excellent food and service, but I have an issue with their sales tax policy. I paid $11.55 for a Tanquery martini served at our table. I could have walked to the bar and paid $11.00. This tactic of increasing revenue by charging sales tax for drinks that, at the bar already include sales tax, is against the recommendations of the Wisconsin Restaurant Association. I also feel $11.55 for a call brand martini is higher than the ambience this establishment merits. I will be checking prices at their competitors before I return."

  • "The food was delicious, service was prompt and attentive, but allowed my group to relax and not be rushed. We had such a good time, that we stayed several hours. We will keep going back for many more years. Highly recommend!"

  • "All items are tasty, but for starters the cheese plate and date appetizer are outstanding! The creamed corn soup is wonderful. The duck was delicious with crispy skin. Don't miss the baked sweet potato!"

  • "We had been to Jake's many times. This visit was very disappointing. No table clothes, the service was so-so, and the food was average at best. Not a good meal for the money. We won't be returning soon!"

  • "Me and my wife had a very delicious meal. We had the Porter House Steak for 2. It was awesome. Had to start with the Haystack of onions. After dinner our waitress bought us a hot fudge Sundae for dessert for our anniversary. Excellent!!"

  • "We've enjoyed Jake's for 15 years. The food is consistently good and the service is very professional. The rustic building makes Jake's unique compared to many of the chains in the area."

  • "We have gone to Jake's for special occasions for years. While I do understand the need to change, there are some things we miss...cheese spread, spinach salad... I was not happy with the side choices. You get a salad or two sides. Most of the sides were starch - some variation of potatoe. The two vegetable choices were brussel sprouts or creamed spinach. For the amt of money that is spent at dinner, a salad should be one of the choices. If you don't like the vegetable choice, you would have to take two potatoes choices. The music could also be toned down. Elvis and michael jackson would not be my first choice for dinner music."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Although the food was very good, we left somewhat disappointed in that the noise level was almost unbearable. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and were hoping for a quiet evening. We could barely hear each other from across the table because of a large, loud group near us."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Bad service at the bar before we sat down bartender was rude and had no personality kind of set a bad tone for the night!!!!!"

  • "Jake's is known for its steak. The have a trio offering of 3- 3oz steaks prepared Oscar style, Blue Cheese, and Black pepper. It was awesome. I highly recommend it as a way to try steak prepared different ways. Loved the deviled eggs as an appetizer. They make a great Old Fashioned among other drinks. Their house wine by the glass was way above what you would expect from a house wine. It was my first time in the dining room. They have a steak special Mondays and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesdays. Definitely worth checking out."

  • "We are long time Jake's fans and, in recent years, felt the entire experience had been slipping in quality. Having stayed away for a period, we decided to give it a try once more. We're so happy we did; the food and menu are fantastic, the service was perfect and the atmosphere excellent. We liked that the sides in particular are not your average in variety; wonderful special touches. Wild rice and apricots; wow! Our entrees were fabulous; the steak I had was the best I've had anywhere else in the Milwaukee area. We don't mind paying high prices when everything about the dining experience is superb and it was at Jake's. We're back to being regulars!"

  • "My tenderloin choice of three 3 oz. Filets was excellent. I would love to frequent this restaurant more but my tab of almost 50 dollars for dinner and 1 drink was pretty pricey for a meeting place with friends."

  • "This is an email I sent to Jakes yesterday (My name is Tom Long. My wife and I enjoyed a fine dinner at your restaurant in Brookfield last night, June 17th. Our server's name was Ryan and our food check # was 183. I just wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful experience we enjoyed there. This was our 47th wedding anniversary and we wanted to celebrate at a very well know restaurant to ourselves. We started to dine at Jakes when your restaurant was on 63rd and North avenue and I was introduced to your fine food when I was dating my wife. We have continued to eat at your fine place for close to 50 years. Keep up the good work, especially the onion rings.)"

  • "My husband and I decided that we hadn't been to Jake's since our 20th wedding anniversary, 21 years ago. It was everything that we remembered, with a few physical changes. We enjoyed everything about this experience. The food, the generous nature of the waiter, the atmosphere!"

  • "My husband had the halibut special amnd I had the 6 oz tenderloin. Both were delicious. The sides we chose were the Brussel sprouts, baked potato and onion strings. Nothing disappointed us. We also ate outside on the patio and enjoyed a nice summer evening. Great waitress too! Will go back again!"

  • "We have been dining at Jake's for about 53 years. It all started at Jake's when it was located on North Avenue in Wauwatosa. I seem to remember my wife and I meeting there for dinner with my Mom and Dad, and we would take a number to be served. Together we'd sit or stand at the bar having a few drinks (my favorite was a hurricane) while waiting for our number to be called when a table was ready for us. My favorite meal was a tenderloin steak done medium rare along with what Jake's called a mountain of onion rings and a salad with green godess dressing. Jake's to us is the place to enjoy a great meal while celebrating a special occasion or just stopping in the lounge for a for a night."

  • "A smaller rustic setting for a special dinner or a Friday night fish fry. The food, ambiance and service is exceptional. There is a large bar area with tables for a more casual meal. A small, more secluded area that seats between 12 and 15 persons, for that special family gathering. The main dining area has a huge fireplace. We were celebrating an anniversary with a few friends. We each had something different and all enjoyed the meal. We shared the ice cream sunday that we received from the house for celebrating with them."

We sent our reservation online and hoped that an outdoor would be available at 7:00. We were lucky that they were able to accomodate and even saw a deer outside the fence! Food was excellent and service was very good! We will be back!"

  • "I chose Jakes to celebrate my retirement with some special friends from work. We had a great time. The night started with a friendly bartender and good drinks. The following meal was great, served by a friendly waitress. Everyone enjoyed their meal with all dishes served just right. The comment I got the next day was "it was the fun-est retirement party she had ever attended'". Jakes had a lot to do with our fun time with good friends. "

  • "Sadly I must report the disappointment I felt after dinning at Jakes this past Wednesday. I came with a party of six. I order a rib eye steak medium rare. It came medium well. The manager was most condescending and arrogant. He told me that it only looked well done because of the lights. The gentleman dinning with us at the opposite end of the table ordered his T bone medium well. I could see that his was medium rare in the same light that showed mine well done. The manager took my steak back and promised me a better one. Not even close. It had a few grill marks on it. Other than that, it looked grey. It was barely 3/4" thick. I'm not sure the new steak was even a rib eye! It was tough with much cartilage Not very tasty"

  • "This is one of our favorite steaks in Milwaukee metro, and the menu should have an something to offer everyone. Service had a little to be desired on our most recent visit, seemed the server may have been late to work tonight as we were sat by the manager (earlyish reservation) and after an awkward delay...ordered drinks through a first waitress before finally being greeted by our actual waiter to re-order drinks. The service never recovered. My steak was cooked to perfection, my wives (trio filets) were all two shades under cooked, I suspect an order entry error. She got all carnivore and enjoyed it anyway. Regardless of all this the night was a hit. Steaks carry Jakes, be prepared for questionable service and a choppy ambiance."
