The burgers here are great, arguably the best in the area. Also good shakes and beer selection.

Very good food. The space is small so I would recommend reservations if you're going (we saw a group of 3 be told there was a 45 minute wait at 6pm on a Saturday so they get busy!). Our server was fine- very attentive when he was around, but disappeared for like 10-20 minutes a couple of times.

I think the experience really depends on the other diners. Like I said, their dining room is small and there was a table of 13 next to us - 6 adults and 7 kids. They clearly do not get out much because for as loud as the kids were, the adults were twice as loud. And one in particular would not stop running his mouth. The.entire.time. Unfortunately, this had an effect on our dinner because we had a VERY hard time having a conversation. I told the maitre'd about it as we were leaving because they were getting progressively louder, but I am not sure if she said anything to them.

Jakes was great. Lot's of different burger's to choose from - including vegetarian. Onion rings are always spectacular and their fries are really good. Next time I want to try one of their milkshakes with the rum.

The hamburgers are exceptional! Everything is a la cart so you do pay extra for French fries or a side. The service was friendly and personable - but possibly a bit too fast (I know, really?). It felt like we just sat down and ordered, and the food was there about 5-10 minutes later. We were in and out in less than an hour, so our fun dinner out was shorter than desired.

Servers did their best to please us.
We began with happy hour wine $5. Delicious Cabernet.
Menu items are pricey and not generous in portion size.
One of our burgers was remade because if a serving error. We had eaten off of the plates we were served before we realized the plates were switched. The server offered to remake my friends plate, I continued with the other.
Menu says “all burgers prepared medium”, which I love. However, mine was served well. We had already waited for one to be remade, so I just ate it well done. We were not charged for one of our burgers.

Jake's has made a lot of additions to their menu recently! Now any burger option can be made with a chickpea patty (falafel) and there is a create-your-own-salad option as well. I didn't get the fries. In the past they have always been over salted so I skipped them this time. The truffel burger was just perfect and my husband's brunch burger (a new menu item) was terrific too.

Great burgers with many options. Beer- cheese sauce on the Wisconsin burger was to-die for. Open faced burger was a great combination of tastes and textures. Small order of onion strings was too-large, but tasted great. Server even gave us directions for reheating our leftovers. Much appreciated.

The food tasted good, but $13.50 for a bacon cheeseburger that doesn't come with fries isn't a good value in my opinion. $3 for fries isn't a good value in my book either. Service was great and atmosphere ok.

Good food for the price. Ambiance was not a fit for the menu. I can’t tell if they want to be a burger joint per the menu or a semi fancy bistro from the lighting and decor. We had a good meal but didn’t have anything that will be driving us to go back soon. Forgot to add, my wife did like the old fashioned

As always the burgers were delicious and service friendly. Can't forget the cheese curds (love the tempura batter) family size order fries! Yum!! Just a warning that the falafel burger was a little disappointing in that it was dry and fell apart. Still good flavor but very difficult to eat as a "burger."

We received a friendly greeting & seated right away towards the tail end of happy hour. It took a long time for our server to stop over so when he did, I missed out on the happy hour price for my beer. Due to the long wait, we ordered our meals right away with drinks. We also asked for 2 waters however they did not come until we reminded the server to bring them.

Jakes Burger has really amazing burgers & salads. The options of toppings you can choose for each is outstanding. They are also very accommodating to my allergy needs. They have a rewards/loyalty card that earns points each visit which also is a plus. I recommend jakes burger for lunch or dinner!

Unimpressed. Burgers were dry and overcooked and one was missing toppings. Server never checked on us after food arrived and there was only one other table being used. Left comment with Jake's facebook page. Contacted me next day and asked when it happened. I responded and no more contact from mgr/owner.

Food is good,
Service is good as well,
but
For the type of food (Burgers, bar food) it is overpriced.
The menu is only alacart.
There are a lot of places within 5 miles of Jake's that you can get a burger that is just as good for about 30% less.
My wife and I had no drinks, a burger and the water chestnut appetizer and our bill was $60, for $30 a person you can get a really good steak dinner.
Given this, the meal was really good and fresh .... just not priced competitively.
If it was priced right we would return.

The food was amazing. The service however, lacked a little. It was obvious to me that they had no interest in taking care of just one person at a table. Maybe service would have been better if I sat at the bar. I'll definitely give them another try. Prices were a little on the high side, but for what you get, you can justify it.
