    We have been to Jakes 6-10 times and always had a good meal with great service. Booked dinner for two via app and upon arrival we were seated at the first table from the door with other booths and tables empty. My wife was starving so we didn't complain. Our server Julia (?) R brought our drink order and asked on her own if we wanted another table in the rear. We never asked but appreciated someone who saw there wasnt a need to seat guests near door with other tables open. My wife orderd a filet mignon which was fine. I had the beef short ribs which were a little dry and not much taste. Our side of mashed cauliflower with bacon was delicious but the creamed spinach just didnt taste right and we never ate it. Maybe an off nite at Jakes

    Overall, the food was good, not great. I ordered lamb chops (medium), but they served them medium-well; which was a little disappointing. Our waiter, David, was very pleasant and personable. Atmosphere was nice. Would recommend if you want to go out for easy dining.

    My wife and I rarely get a chance to experience the higher end of dining. So our time at Jake's was thooyughly enjoyed. Staring with the hostesses (one in training) to our superb waitress Gloria... Let me stop there. Though our meals were excellent, my wife and I both agree, Gloria is the reason for our extremely possitive review. She was engagingly entertaining. without being overbearing. She was exceptionally knowledgeable. ..and (if I may) cute too. We will be back.

    First of all everything was delicious. The braised short rib is fall off the bone amazing. Pulled pork sliders great, crabcake ditto, guacamole terrific. Went for lunch at 12:30 on a Saturday - place was empty but it was perfect because I like quiet, no one rushed us, waiter was great. Can't wait to go back.

    Was my son's last meal before he went away to camp and he chose Jake's in East Meadow. So glad he did. We had a wonderful meal and tremendous service from our server Kirk. He was knowledgable, funny and engaging. Our appetizers and entrees arrived hot and in a timely manner. The GM, Justin, has complete control over the diningroom and makes sure that everyone feels comfortable. Of note: their bone-in NY Strip is absolutely delicious and I can't wait to go back for another. Great job Jake's. Thank you so much!

    We took my son there for a milestone birthday. Outstanding food with good value. My wife and I had the $28 three course meal-appetizier(e.g. fried calamari, baked calms); main course- steaks including a nice short ribs, salmon; chicken parm; and a nice dessert. My son had the surf and turf-lobster tail and filet mignon-$48. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass and abt a dozen beers on tap including a couple of ales. Really nice inside bar and outside patio/bar area. Super knowledgeable and attentive waiter and manager(Justin). Justin bought us a round of drinks and signature appetizer. Super classy and much appreciated! We will be back and bring our friends

    Beautiful Friday night, thought we would meet friends at the outdoor patio. Grabbed a table and waited, not only for our friends but for our beverages. It took forever to get a drink. When the drink did finally come it we horrible. Then the waiter forgot our appetizer order. ..then the salad dressing was like straight vinegar. The noise of Hempstaed tpk was loud as the trucks and motorcycles zoomed and rattled by. The table next to us was smoking....had a nice time catching up with friends but will not go back.

    Food and service was excellent! Only real issue i had was they recently made all streets around the restaurant for residents only and the parking lot doesn't have nearly enough room for all of the customer cars so it basically leaves you with no other choice but to wait in the lot for someone to finish and leave so we could park. That made us a half hour late for our reservation...they had no other suggestions on where to park either. I dont know if they valet any other nights of the week but they had no valet when I was there on a Thursday.

    We chose Jake's because it was equidistant between us and the other couple we were meeting. My husband and I were meeting our good friend's new beau for the first time and Jake's was perfect!! Our waiter, Paul was attentive but didn't hover. The food was fantastic and the drinks were potent! I had the 'grey goose Le fizz' and now I have to find the recipe to have it at home as well. We spent four hours catching up and getting to know our new friend. We never felt rushed to leave. I can;t wait to go back again!

    We were drawn in due to restaurant week. I loved the food, especially the boneless short ribs, the wedge salad was good but a little too much dressing. I loved the chocolate pretzel martini. Not for everyone but if you like that type of drink, it's great. My only complaint is the service wasn't very good. We were left sitting for a while without anyone coming by. My glass was empty for a while before the waiter came back to ask if I wanted another one. Overall, though, I enjoyed it and would go back

    Chose Jake's because it offered a restaurant week menu and is halfway between where my friend and I live. What a fabulous find. There was a huge selection on the menu, something for everyone. We had ordered fried calamari and I had mussels in white wine sauce as our appetizers. For dinner we chose salmon and chicken parmesan, which was served in the biggest portion known to man! Absolutely delicious! To dessert we chose brownie ala mode and Jake's cream pie, which wasn't what I expected. I believe that the restaurant offers a price fixe menu and I plan to return. Kirk was our server, great kid and extremely hospitable. Thanks!!

    We all enjoyed our meals at Jakes this week. All of the food was well prepared and very flavorful. The experience was nearly spoiled by some very loud people at another table. I had to change my seat so I could hear the other guests at my table. Fortunately the loud group left not long after we arrived. As far as the meal is concerned, I have nothing bad to say; everything was prepared exactly as I like it. In other words the food was a home run. The noise level was annoying.

    I took my Husband out for his Birthday after reading the reviews I decided to go to Jakes Steahouse. What a great decision. The hospitality was extended as soon as we entered the restaurant and it only got better as the evening progress. The food was excellent. The service great. I couldn't have found a better place to celebrate. I will definelty be returning. ( This was restaurant week and the menu has variety of great selections. Normally some restaurants are limited and don't offer great selections but Jakes didn't cut any corners). My suggestion is if you have never gone and are hesitant don't be you will not be disappointed it is a hidden gem.
