    I was there with my family and it was total confusion! My dad's order was totally wrong and they brought out everyone's food but my husbands! When they finally brought his food they brought out a whole new tray a food that was out order all over again that was actually correct! since we had already started eating we didn't take it! Waste of money in my opinion, the only good thing was the characters came to the table for the kids!

    The service and atmosphere were great. Kids enjoyed the character visits during breakfast. The food itself was not up to expectations. Lots of food, but lower quality than I would have liked. Rubbery pancakes and "funny" tasting coffee.

    Dined on 8/11/2013
    I requested special treat for my son due to his birthday. Also, we mentioned that in the comments' section during the reservation process and others reminders during phone call confirmation and in person with the hosts. But, the restaurant staff paid no attention to our request, or make any comments to us how to make this day special for him during the brunch with the character. Actually, we selected this venue because our son wanted to share with a specific character that the restaurant advertised (The Minnions), as soon as we arrived, we received the bad news that the Minions would not appear and did not receive any apology for the inconvenience.

    We stayed one night at Lowes Royal Pacific and chose Jakes for dinner in view of its lovely relaxed atmosphere and reasonably priced menu, which had something for everyone. I definitely recommend Jakes to anyone looking for good food in a nice casual setting.

    My four year old son is a picky eater, but we went specifically for him to see some of his favorite Characters. He loved seeing & interacting with Mr.Gru and the Minion from Despicable Me as well as the bunnies from HOP. The staff made sure each character stopped at each table. The food was good, but the service just okay. Environment was noisy but perfect for those with kids. Family friendly for sure. Just took our server a bit of time to acknowledge us, but once she did, it was a good experience overall.

  • Sunday Character brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/9/2013
    Jakes has a special character brunch for the summer, Sunday mornings only. This is probably the best character brunch we have ever went to. It was myself, my husband and our six year old grandson. As we walked up to the podium to check in we could already feel the energy. EB and pink beret bunny from HOP were dancing with staff and kids right inside the door. We were seated immediately and drink orders were taken. Brunch explained, menus left for us to decide our entree. We really liked how this brunch was done. The pastrys/breads, fruit, pancake bar were help yourself. Gru and minion Bob were also there. Everything was outstanding. Wonderful character interaction. I hope they continue this after September, we would go again!

    we had a great family dinner out on the patio outdoor dining at Jakes. The food was fabulous and the service was fantastic. We were taking advantage of the discount given to active duty or retired military, my husband is retired Navy, it was for memorial day. It was a great way to thank him for his service. He was very appreciative. We are going back in Aug for our anniversary and plan on eating here again!

    Seemed to be run by the unenthusiastic high school and college students of Orlando. Our waiter had no knowledge of the food or drinks menus. The meal was mediocre at best. We were disappointed to find such a failure in an otherwise lovely resort.

    We were locals and went to the hotel for a Christmas get together. We had 7:00 pm reservations and were seated immediately. The menu had just changed a few weeks before we dined. They seemed to still be getting used to it. Items were left off of plates when they were delivered to the table, but were brought after we requested them. The Buns for the burgers were of very low quality. Had the lamb burger and turkey burger. Both were OK. The lettuce was wilted. Also ordered sirloin steak. It was rather tough. The Buffalo chicken pizza was one of the worst pizzas that I ever had. It had no flavor. I have had better pizzas at a school lunch. The deserts were good. The service was good.

    We ended up not eating. You need to update your online menu because its completely different than the restaurant menu. Unfortunately we came in looking for specific things and those were no longer on the menu. We appreciate island food (from living in Kaneohe, Hawaii for 3 1/2 years), but it was too little of a menu selection for us. The waitress was amazing and kind. And the decor was great.

    Our family - two adults, two teens - was staying at the Royal Pacific Hotel, so we chose Jake's American for convenience. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We were able to sit outdoors, across from a waterfall in the hotel's garden - very pleasant. Menu had something for everyone. Service was VERY friendly and solicitous. Turkey burger with brie was excellent, hamburger was enjoyed by our 13 year old, grilled mozzarella w/tomato was a bit flavorless, though. An excellent choice if you're staying at the Royal Pacific or need a break from Universal Studios. It's just a short walk from CityWalk and did not have the long lines of CityWalk restaurants.

    Jake's at the Royal Pacific is a great restaurant to eat while visiting the Universal Parks. The restaurant is in the beautiful Royal Pacific, the setting is beautiful, the atmosphere was great, the waitress was outstanding, and the menu is not extensive but the food we ordered was great. Also the cost is very reasonable for the location.

    Have been to Jake's many times. Service and food was better in the past. Ordered a turkey burger that was not edible. The waitress did not ask me about it, just took it away. Will not recommend this place. I am a Gold Member of Loew's First. I have noticed a decline in Jake's this year over the last ten years. Especially in the quality of food and table service.
