This is a terrific restaurant
This is a terrific restaurant and bar!! Our server was friendly and was spot on with his recommendations. The food was super tasty and the desserts are sinfully good!! We were a group of 7 ladies and we weren't hurried after we paid the bill. I love this restaurant!!

Yummy food; great service.
It's nice to be incredibly surprised by a restaurant. Went there for brunch and had one of the nicest, best-tasting brunches ever. Lobster, spinach, and ricotta omelette. Honey almost french toast. Great bellini and bloody mary. Service was very pleasant and attentive. And prices were very reasonable.

We hadn't been to Jake's in
We hadn't been to Jake's in years. It had been completely renovated, both in terms of its physical structure and a brand new menu. The bar area is now huge and very hopping! The restaurant side is lovely. We had the best waitress!!! She was so sweet and attentive! Everyone loved what they ordered (group of 6). It was a birthday celebration for me and didn't disappoint. We would definitely go back.
P.S. They even validate parking

The food and service were very well done. Our waiter paid close attention, but no overbearing. We were a party of 4 with one vegan, which the chef accommodated fairly well. The beer selection was excellent.

Pretty Good Experience
Overall it was pretty good. Service was great up until dessert. Took 45min to an hour to get it which was surprising. It didn't seem like the waiters fault but was disappointing that was the only low point. Figured it would take maybe an hour and a half two hours and we were there for well over two and a half hours because of dessert. Probably should work on that.

This was a great spot for an evening out with friends. We were seated quickly. The wait staff was attentive and pleasant, but not over-bearing or interupting. The food was wonderful! We got 2 pizzas and a small plate and shared between the three of us and everything was delicious. Lisa's Pizza was amazing!!! The spicy meatball was very spicy, but quite good. The shrimp dumplings were delicate and cooked perfectly, and of course, the wine was excellent. We had a casual, comfortable and enjoyable time. Will definitely go again and have recommended it to others!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Jakes/Coopers. We had a great time. David was our server. Great recommendations for drinks and food as well as providing wonderful service. The food was fantastic and the presentations were beautiful. Thanks for a memorable evening.

we had a very good dinner
we had a very good dinner from appetizer to dessert and were all pleasantly surprised after not having dined there for several years

The atmosphere is striking.
The atmosphere is striking. It creates a very enjoyable location to have a meal. The service was fantastic from the minute we walked in the door, through out our anniversary dinner and until the time we left. The food was superb. I had the soft-shell crab and my wife had the shrimp dumplings - fantastic flavors and just the right amount.
Our server Anna was superb. She knew when to be at the table and when to leave us alone. The desert came on an anniversary plate with two glasses of champagne. What a treat.
This was our first time at Jakes and we will be back with friends.

Just Jake at Jake's
Lunch or dinner is highly recommended. Lots of choices and the pizza is the BEST anywhere. Great cupa coffee and delicious desserts...

We visited this place twice in last couple of weeks and very much enjoyed the ambience and food. Above all, their pizzas are thin crust and absolutely excellent made in a wood fired oven as it supposed to be. Service was very attentive and fast. Definitely we'll be back.

Excellent food, excellent wine with recommendation from fantastic waiter. Big windows come out so that there is wide open air to Manayunk Main Street, but they still had the ac on so it was pleasant. Could be a little loud when motorcycles went by, but enjoyed the scenery anyway. Have been in winter when this is all closed up and much more intimate atmosphere then, but enjoyed it all the same.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here several times throughout the year and have never had anything but an outstanding experience!

By far one of the best spots on Main Street in Manayunk. The menu is perfect for those looking for a little taste of everything. My staple favorites are their Smoked Gouda and their tuna tartar appetizers. I usually also end up getting one of their pizzas, which are always crispy and pleasing to my taste buds! The wine list is extensive and they also have a fun beer list! Great spot for a first date or dinner with your friends. Either or, you will not be disappointed!

A Lovely Evening
My first trip to Jakes and I will be back. Food was excellent as was the service and the atmosphere. We really enjoyed the restaurant and hope to be back soon. Perfect for after work with a really nice happy hour.

A fun night out
My daughter and her husband are just moving to Manayunk and we wanted to celebrate. This proved to be a fun spot with good food and a wonderful selection of wines. We got there a little early and went to the bar where we received great wine selection advice. We sat down to eat a little after 8 p.m. and the place still had a nice energetic feel. The food -- especially the fish special -- was very good. All around a very nice experience. We'll be back.

Something for everyone
Jake's does a good job of offering casual to upscale options and seems to do it all well. Though the full dinner plates seemed "safe" in comparison to foodie places downtown, the swordfish entree we had was tremendous. We also ordered a small plate of gnocchi in a pumpkin emulsion/sauce you wanted to go home with a bottle of and a great beet salad with exceptional goat cheese. Previous visits we've dined on the Cooper's side of the house and went full on with pizzas and salads. Also a good choice.

Always good at Jake's
The food at Jake's is always good. Great that you an eat casual or formal, from great burgers to Jake's crab cakes that are always delicious in a very comfortable environment. Good selection of wines by the glass and beers on tap. And the ice cream taco is a delicious dessert worth all the calories. Will definitely be back, again.

Jake's is Back to Being A Favorite
Love the NEW Jake's. For years Jake's was one of our favorite restaurants. But things went down hill & we stopped eating there. Now it is a favorite again! Ate there twice recently. Both times we found the atmosphere lively, service attentive, menu varied, food delicious & served quickly & hot.Great for a quick light meal or a full 3 course dining experience. Bonus that they have several Gluten Free items identified on the menu. Jake's is once again a favorite of ours!

Was a nice dinner....
Service was a little off. One waiter had a most tables and while he at first was very knowledgeable about the food, etc.. after a few more tables arrived it was difficult to get his attention. The food was pretty good - havent' been there in a long time. Overall we really enjoyed and I'd go back again ...

the portions of the swordfish
the portions of the swordfish were definitely too small!!

Always worth the trip
Hour drive to meet a Philly friend. All of us had a tremendous meal, cocktails were spectacular and service (thanks, Anna!) was outstanding. Hadn't been here for a while and it was even better than our previous visits to Jake's and Cooper's. We'll be back sooner.

Outstanding dining in Manayunk
This was my first time to Jake's and Cooper's and I sure hope it won't be my last. The food was outstanding and the customer service was top notch. The only negative was that although we had a reservation, we had to wait for our table. However, the manager more than made up for this minor inconvenience by having an appetizer waiting for us and also comping us a dessert. The roasted chicken breast was scrumptious and the lamb shank literally fell right off the bone. I have to give this place a big two thumbs up! Not to mention the wine was delicious! Run don't walk to Jake's and Cooper's! Thank you for such great service and an excellent meal.

Well-prepared, delicious food
Very quiet at lunch, attentive staff, good variety of choices. Have enjoyed fine brunch and dinner here as well.

Mostly very good.
Jake's has always had really good food and service. The crab cakes are great. The mussels are great. The scallops are very good, but the portion is small. The hamburgers are just ok, not as good as they used to be. Our waiter was very good.
