I was a bit skeptical since the menu seemed limited but was pleasantly surprised at the selections. My shrimp scampi was one best I've had. My sweetie hasn't stop talking about the Seafood Pot. My aunt loved the off menu special of pistachio crusted Halibut and my sister in law raved about the Ahi. We had a corner table with a great view. It was a very enjoyable evening.

Our waiter was great no problems with the wait staff. The food was subpar. The shrimp were very smelly. All the fish dishes smelled as if they were on the last day to serve them, smelly and strong. The Caesar’s salad was chopped so small with very little dressing or taste. But the Hula pie was great. The cocktails were good. This was a birthday celebration so it was a little disappointing as far as the food. Great view of the ocean.

Service was thoughtful, friendly, and efficient. The food was really outstanding. The calamari is always a great starter. The Achiote Roasted Fish (mahi mahi) was perhaps the best Mahi I've ever had with excellent preparation and sides. Of course, the Hula Pie is a wonderful end to a meal. Jake's never disappoints.

Been going to Jake’s for years. Made reservations to celebrate my son’s birthday. Hostess acknowledged birthday, but nothing from the waiter Alex. Seated at a table where the waiter told us it would feel like we were on a boat for dinner because the floor is so uneven, our chairs would rock back and forth all night. He was right. So uncomfortable. Ordered calamari, very tough and tasteless, ordered both fresh Alaskan halibut at $45, and Fresh Mahi at $33. Both were ok served with a bland succotash and rice. Very small portions and underwhelming. Our waiter was no where in sight. Had to flag down a bus boy for water, and another server had brought out our dinners. Even had to ask to order another cocktail. When our waiter did reappear asked if we would like dessert. We did, and of course I thought they would bring out the hula pie with a candle to celebrate. I had seen other tables getting this service, and always have in the past. 20 minutes later the waiter plops this dessert on the table. We ask what took so long. No apologies blamed the kitchen, and no help, etc. We told him after 20 minutes and no birthday wish we would pass on dessert. He said I can’t do that it’s been cut. I won’t charge you. It was not the cost, it was the lack of any empathy at all. He took it back and huffed away. He returned another 5 minutes later with our check. With tip, a $170 dinner was not worth it. The friendly valets were the highlight of the night.

Of course there is always valet parking.
