I would highly recommend Jake's if you can get an outdoor table. The atmosphere is lovely-- kind of tropical and peaceful. I made a reservation on Open Table weeks in advance and all that was available was 5 pm. But on the day of I was able to change it to basically anytime I wanted. It really wasn't busy. I got a fish dish, and it was delicious.

Great food and service , kids loved it. Menu to suit all tastes, they answered questions regarding an allergy quickly. Good value for the quality and quantity of food.

It was ok. The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either. Service was fine. I probably wouldn’t go back.

The crawfish chowder is wonderful. Nice bar/restaurant to grab a bite before or after Universal. Great find, fast friendly service. Make a reservation during busy times.

We had reservations for 6pm. We got there about 5 minutes early and they actually made us wait until 6 to seat us, the place was empty! The service was so slow even though it was not busy during the time we were there. The food was good and cooked as ordered. Overall the experience was ok.

The service was slow, the food was bad food, and I didn’t get the veggie that I ordered. When I informed the staff, I was brought raw veggies. No Dr Pepper...BIG miss.

Food was okay...drinks were awful. Unfortunately they don’t know how to make any mixed drinks. Stick with beer if you dining there. Food was okay.

The Short rib is amazing and a huge portion. ...Best I’ve ever had. The Grits are delicious. I’d drive an hour to eat here.

Good service, food was decent for a resort hotel. Nothing to write home about, but it was pleasant enough.

We had an issue with one of our 3 meals but they were more than gracious about trying to give it to us for nothing, but since we had eaten part of it we only accepted a partial credit!! Everything else was Great along with the service!!!

Jake's was a pleasant surprise, better than I expected it to be. The restaurant and staff make you feel very welcome; it is an easygoing, relaxing atmosphere. I love the fans. The food was delicious. I ordered too much, and after eating the buffalo wings, chowder, and salad, I was stuffed and couldn't eat my sandwich, so I boxed it, put it in the suitcase, and took it all the way home with me to New Jersey, where I ate it, and it still tasted good, ten hours after ordering it. The air conditioning was perfect, not too cold. Jake's and Mythos were my two favorite dining experiences on the trip. My only complaint, our waitress asked us when we would like each item to come out, and we said we wanted the buffalo wings first, then the soup, but both were served to us at the same time.

Very limited menu after 11:00 p.m. Trying to eat just after 11:00 - no accommodation made at all. Take it or leave it. Second bad experience. Ate there only because it was late at hotel and no other restaurant open. Very expensive for quality of food. Had eaten here another night and had he artichoke and spinach. The artichokes were clearly out of a jar an the whole flatbread pizza had a very vinegary taste. After two bites, I was sick of it, but continued to eat it. Poor value.

Ribeye was fatty but good flavor and Sea Bass was overcooked but overall was good but there are better options at the parks

Food was incredible. Delicious burgers - beat those served in the Universal parks by a mile. Portions were a great size. Our 10 & 13 year old children ordered from the kids menu and these were big enough for them.

Cupcake dessert was huge....enough to share or take home for a treat the next day.

Volcano cocktail was flaming good too.

Service was great. We'd booked through the OpenTable link and only waited 2 or 3 minutes to be seated. Assistant Manager introduced himself to us. Even waited whilst we'd finished discussing the rules of the card game as he didn't want to interrupt.
