Jakes is consistently one
Jakes is consistently one of the best places to dine in Burlington, whether it's for fine dining, a business lunch or a casual dinner. The food is always excellent and the staff are well trained and typically make every dining experience enjoyable. Thanks to the management and all the staff for all your great efforts!

Great food as always. Had the lamb special with shrimp and wish they would serve the potato side all of the time, even in place of the regular sweet potato gratin.

My wife and I went a few evenings
My wife and I went a few evenings ago for a quiet dinner for two. Made reservation for 6:30 on a week night. Seated immediately. Outstanding food - my wife had the fish tacos and raved about them. My steak was superb. Service was excellent. Seated next to a fireplace, nice wine list, and very pleasant atmosphere. All in all, a wonderful experience and we will definitely return.

Jake's Grill and Oyster House
Nice variety of appetizers and main courses, the PEI mussels are outstanding, both white and red. Noise level is not a problem here. Ambiance is so much quieter than most of the roadhouse chains!!! Service is very attentive and pleasant...more professional than most. Be sure to book a reservation for most nights and weekends as it is well patronized. No outrageous automatically added gratuity for our party of 6 people.

Great food, good service.
Service was a bit slow at first, but overall very good. Good selection of menu items and several with a spicier flare - the seafood linguine was fantastic.

Good food however hostess was not accommodating but service was great. We had a reservation for 5pm. We were directed to an area but there was a large pole that seemed to be obstructing one table so we chose the otherseating area. We chose one of the two tables in that area. We ordered our drinks and were enjoying out evening. The hostess then approached us and said the table was reserved which we thought odd because we had a reservation too. We were asked to move to another table but they seemed to be all reserved and she suggested a table at the bar. We were finally offered a proper table but our anniversary dinner was not as enjoyable.

Second Time as Good as the First!
My wife and I went to Jake's several weeks ago and returned this last time with the kids. A great meal! My son had the kids' steak - loved it! My daughter had the pasta with tomato sauce and she said it was really good. I had the 16oz rib eye - full of flavour and nicely cooked medium. My wife had tacos (as she did the last time) and they were wonderful. It was bisuer this time than the last, but the noise level wasnèt bad at all. Lots of stuff (e.g. model ships, etc.) for the kids to look at while waiting for their food to arrive. They have other tables close to the fireplace, etc. that are more ÈromanticÈ and suitable for a quiet dinner for two. Highly recommended; one of our favourite spots now.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
A neighborhood gem. The happy hour menu was greatly priced with tons of delicious choices. Our group of (4) ordered 10 items in total off the happy hour menu plus a main course of fish and chips. Portions were decent in size (no cutback in size/amount of food served on the happy hour menu vs. regular price menu). The PEI mussels portion was huge and deliciously prepared. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and very efficient. Food came out together. Great restaurant overall. Well worth a visit especially during happy hour! Fish tacos, duo calamari and crab wontons are some must try items!
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, a great dining experience and we had a great waitress. Will come back again....
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were very impressed with the service. One in our party did not like her dinner and the waitress made no fuss but brought it to managers attention and he came over and asked us about it. The meal wasn't bad or anything ....she just expected something else.
We were treated very courteously.....koodos to the wait staff!!!!
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really good spot for a serious lunch meeting although there were numerous tables with simple social gatherings too. Quiet enough to be heard but not dead. Place was about half-full I would say. Fish tacos were stellar; the hamburger tasty but perhaps a bit pricey for the plate. Lots of choice for your sides if you want to steer clear of the (excellent) fries. The staff clearly care about their patrons - really good service and a nice "seafood" ambience.
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, ok service
Our server was pretty good but the hostesses seemed angry and like they didn't want to be there. It was uncomfortable to be treated so dismissively by them. Once we were seated we probably waited over 10 minutes before anyone came by to take our drink order. But the food was good. The fish was cooked perfectly. We would definitely recommend it for the food and hopefully the service was just a bad night.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found this very busy restaurant to be inviting and the food excellent
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Jake's as a late Father's Day treat. The food was fantastic. I had the bronzed mahi mahi and it did not disappoint. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meal and we had a great time. The Tuesday night perch fish and chips was an excellent dish at a great price. It was my second time there and I will definitely be going back.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
You had run out of Perch by the time we arrived, but our very friendly server managed to get us the last of the pickerel.
Great Service and friendly atmosphere.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were very surprised by the quality of serve and the meal; both were superb. We did go at the tail end of happy hour so it was a little loud but as the happy hour crowd left, it became much quieter and carrying on conversation was possible and enjoyable. We made reservations and were greeted at the door and shown to our table immediately. Very please with the experience and would definitively come back.

Seafood & Ribs
Great seafood and Burlington's best ribs, plus Happy Hour specials. The place is clean, friendly and trying to earn you business.

Not what I was expecting!
Having lived in Burlington my entire life, I was surprised when we arrived at Jake's; it was nothing like what I thought it would be, and it was VERY busy! Since it is a location that is not easy to get to, I never even thought about going there, but the Taste of Burlington promotion and their delightful-sounding menu tempted us. Thank goodness we did! It was by far one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had! Our server was amazing, very attentive without being overbearing. When a big party's order threatened to create a little delay in our dinner, they let us know right away. And the food itself was amazing. SO delicious! Everything we had was great. I will recommend Jake's to EVERYONE from now on. A great experience overall!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Oysters - can't get enough of them!
Wednesday is 1/2 Price App Night - excellent idea - apps all night long. Best seafood in Burlington.

My family and I decided to look on Opentable for good restaurants nearby, and we came across Jake's Grill, I have passed through this place hundreds of times and never noticed.
The place feels full of energy and the food was simply delicious. I have a boy who simply dislikes seafood, and ended up eating it all.
This is a place I would return, for sure.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't usually order a salmon steak, only fillet. But last time I was at Jakes, my sister ordered it and I was very impressed with the way it was cooked. I have a bone issue and Jakes had turned the steak so the outside skin was inside and the bones on the outside and totally removed. This time I ordered it and it was fantastic. Cooked perfectly, not dry and not too pink. This ones a keeper for me and I'll definitely order it again.
The service was good as usual. I enjoy being able to count on consistency and Jakes always delivers.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for the ribfest special. Much better than any ribs I have ever had at the park. And at that price, it's a STEAL! I would always rather go to Jakes for ribs than ribfest. Service was great, as it usually is.

Alternative to Ribfest 2013
We had an early reservation as that was the only availability that fit our schedule. The service was excellent - no significant wait time - the ribs were perfect. As we are not line-up people the is the best alternative to Burlington's Rib Fest in town.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were there late on Labour
We were there late on Labour Day and was at first told they were out of ribs:( We were ready to leave but the waitress came back and said that there were enough ribs for our table. She went the extra mile and we appreciated that. Great service!!

Fantastic well cooked seafood. Great service we never feel rushed to finish.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was my first visit to Jake's but not my dining partner's. The service was excellent. Our waitress was prompt but not bothersome, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good but perhaps not quite "fit for foodies". The sweet potatoes were outstanding ! I requested a booth with my online reservation and we did get it so were happy with that. We will return and happy to refer Jake's to others.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Jake's a couple times now and have enjoyed the food and service each time. The perfect mix of "Pub" and "Restaurant" ... great for afterwork snacks with clients.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Large variety of seafood
Really enjoyed the coconut shrimp and the seafood linquine. Nice spice to the linguine. Good service and good space between appys, dinner and desert. Price was a big higher than expected but the food was worth it.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A group of ten of us went for a friend's 40th birthday. The venue was perfect for our get-together, and the staff was friendly and efficient. My scallops and shrimp were delicious. The birthday girl tried her first oyster and finished with a smile. I'll return someday for sure!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favourite restaurants
We like to dine at Jake's on a regular basis to enjoy good beer and tasty food. We especially enjoy the times when they have special dinner choices, such as Lake Erie Perch & Pickerel, and Thanksgiving turkey dinner.

Excellent Food but Noisy
Enjoyed a nice meal with my wife and parents. They know how to prepare fish a Jakes. While the food and service were excellent an they were kind enough to move us as far away from the bar area, the noise from the TV/stereo made it difficult to hold a conversation. I find that such artificial noise does not contribute but rather detracts from the natural ambience generated by people having a good time and enjoying each other's conversation.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a good first time experience. Great selection of Oysters and overall the menu is different than a lot of the typically family restaurants, which is a nice change. I will be returning.
