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.

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.

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.

The service was wonderful and probably the only enjoyable thing about our experience. $18 for a burger that is only smaller than a quarter pounder is not what I call getting my monies worth. Being a resort hotel restaurant prices are expected to be high, but usually there is excellent flavor and uniqueness that makes it worth it. Not the case. Also $20 for half of the worlds smallest chicken, not ideal. The chicken while moist was bland. And for pancetta mac and cheese, I'd expect it to be cheesey, flavorful, and filled with bits of pancetta. The noodles were mostly dry, and had very little meat to it. Again, amazing service, friendly and attentive. But spend your money elsewhere.

We waited for a solid 10 minutes before a server that was not even ours came over and took our drink order because I'm sure he could see how annoyed I was!
My daughter ordered spaghetti with no sauce and somehow it tasted burned....my turkey burger was dry and had way to much seasoning and overpriced is an understatement! $12.00 for a kids meal? I could buy 12 boxes of pasta for what they charged. Overall very disappointed and will not eat here again during this vacation.....

We were looking for quieter place for dinner rather than Citiwalk at Universal. Loved the atmosphere. We were promptly seated. My husband ordered cheeseburger with salad and was very good. I ordered the shrimp risotto. It was beautifully prepared. It was so salty. I tried adding pepper to offset it. I had to add some of my water to dish. I probably should have sent it back, Manager did come around and asked about our meals. She immediately went to kitchen and told our server. She did provide us with dessert coffees. I would return to restaurant.

The place has a casual atmosphere, and much better than typical bar food. The pretzel sticks, burger, salads, dessert were all really great. Service was good and friendly. Cocktails could have been better and it was a little hard to find the place, but overall we enjoyed it and I'd recommend it.

We stayed at the Royal Pacific hotel while visiting Universal Theme Park. We had lunch once and dinner once at Jake's. The menu has limited choices but everything we ordered were good and good valued. For the 3 of us we could easily fill up on 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. Service was quick and the wait staff was extremely nice. I would recommend Jake's gladly!

The service was slow! The Mojito was bland and had no taste! Ordered the mozzarella tomato sandwich it came out on burnt bread and ice cold, it was supposed to be hot even though it doesn't say that on the menu. Fries were ice cold ended up sending them back. Had Caesar salad and watermelon and feta salad with grilled shrimp. Was basic nothing special. Manager did remove the sandwiches and the Mojito from the bill. Would probably not go back!

 (Jacksonville)·Dined on July 23, 2016

The food was delicious but our server was not great. The food runner spilled and broke the glass of my cocktail and no one came to get rid of the broken glass or even get rid of the excess drink. The replacement drink was way too strong for me and the manager wasn't very friendly after I had told the waitress I didn't want a replacement and why. Maybe this isn't the norm, but making us eat with broken glass everywhere was really uncomfortable. OK value, good food, mostly OK drinks (my first cocktail was great just not the second), but lousy service. Couldn't get more water to save my life. Also the singer was awful-way off key and doing terrible covers.
