many long time employees. Prices have risen through the years, but they have great roll back prices on Mondays, which is generally
packed. Their fish specials are awesome.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLong Time CustomerI have been coming here for years... with ex, Mom, friends etc. When I say years I mean ... probably since it opened. Just introduced daughter, husband and grandchild. They all loved it. It has never been less than excellent in a zillion years. The menu has changed and grown through the years. I took them on a Wednesday.... when they asked my grandson where he wanted to eat on Saturday.... he replied "Jake's" need I say more?5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great ServiceThe onion string appetizers are delicious and the best around.

Terrific meal from start to finish.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMwe have been coming here forwe have been coming here for 50 years, when Wally Bail played the organ. Always a pleasure, Tina was a great waitris. We usually come early on Thur. or Fri. Your Mon. speacial is a real bargin.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI did not mention to the restaurantI did not mention to the restaurant that it was my birthday dinner outing and so I was very impressed by the waiter as he noticed my sister gave me a birthday gift and inquired if in fact it was my birthday and was kind enough to bring us a dessert to celebrate. He was very on top of things throughout the meal.
Loved the music selections. Our meals were delicious. We went for the Monday night steak special which we felt was resonable but ended up with a very large bill. Next time we will have one drink each instead of two and only one or no additional sides instead of two. Amazing how it all adds up so quickly. Being retired means we need to cut back and this was an awakening to know what to do in future dining experiences.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBrookfield StapleJakes has been around for a long time and it's easy to see why. They are known for their steaks and they are delicious. Unlike most newer steak joints this one still offers 2 sides versus everything being ala carte. My friend and I ordered the 6 oz. filet which was served with your choice of sauce. I chose Jake's sauce and my friend chose the blue cheese. She raved about hers and mine was equally delicious. They are also known for their onion straws. Overall we had a good experience at Jakes. Only downside it that it is pretty pricey.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service are alwaysThe food and service are always excellent! Enjoy every visit!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMJakes': A Perennial FavoriteWe had dinner recently at Jakes, which is one of our perennial favorites. The duck was excellent and my wife always enjoys the Coquille St. Jacques. The onion rings are great also. There are not many standard vegetable offerings, which can prove frustrating. The seating is rather crowded also. The positives far outweigh the negatives, however, as we keep coming back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a great time. filet nothad a great time. filet not as good as handful of other places but overall it's a great meal including appetizers and desserts4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steak was unbelievable!The steak was unbelievable!
