Jake's on the Lake
Considerate service, great food, wonderful views made Jake’s an excellent option for my husband’s birthday celebration. We will be back often.
Our goal was to find a place on the lake with a beautiful view and great food and Jake's provided just that! We sat out on the patio, the heaters kept us plenty warm and the service was great. We would definitely go back.
Good location on Lake Tahoe, but 20-25% overpriced.
Great view. Most food and cocktails were excellent. Only exception was the petit filet and prawns which were way overcooked and tough (ordered medium, but received something closer to well done; completely grey center).
Went there for my birthday celebration and had a great time. We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the lake. Drinks were great. Dinner was delicious especially the Macadamia Crusted Halibut! All staff were friendly and professional! A little pricey but would definitely recommend...especially for special occasions.
An amazing experience ❤️
Love the food and ambiance
I especially like the variety in the temperature and textures of items on the plate. The ambiance and service were as good as always.
Good service. Awesome menu options. Hamachi crudo was great. Can’t beat the sunset view. One of our favorite spots in Tahoe.
The waitress was very nice and educated on the menu. The main dishes were very good, I ate lobster and my mother ate some halibut fish and my daughter had chicken teriyaki. The only disappointing thing was the desert which was peach cobbler. They mentioned it was gluten-free which is fine but didn’t mention that there is absolutely zero red in it. Second thing is they mentioned that his the season or dessert that is served but forgot to mention the canned peaches are included in that
Food is good but the views are the best. Service was very good as well. We'll be back!!
Food, service, atmosphere And view of the lake made for a perfect evening
Jakes is always great!
Nice views of the lake. Good service. Food was average and fairly expensive but as good as most North Tahoe restaurants. Very pleasant dining experience on a warm July night.
It was great. The baked Brie is unbelievable. The Manhattan martini was perfect. We had s great dining experience twice this month. Will try to make it one more time.
Nice view, interesting food, good service.. we both had a tropical mule, which was fun and tasty.
Beautiful setting. Great service. Delicious food!
Service was poor, food was good.
Great night as always.
Kelley was wonderful and helpful.
Great food, good service and breathtaking sunset.
We had a great table outside with a beautiful view, our service was excellent and the crab cakes were very good. Can’t wait to go back.
We were there to celebrate a friends birthday. The 4 of us were seated at a window table which was lovely. The food and service were great. We were there for about 2 hours and never felt rushed.
Thanks for visiting Jake's On The Lake. Great to hear you had a memorable experience dining on the lake. Come back again soon on your next trip to Tahoe City!
We had a fun experience interacting with the Wait Staff, excellent service, a wonderful lake view, with excellent food and beverages. Enjoy the Aloha Tahoe spirit!
Thanks for visiting Jake's On The Lake. We have shared this feedback with our staff and hope you visit again soon. Aloha
Hadn’t been to Jakes in many years and was pleasantly surprised. Much better than I recall. Always a beautiful view and especially nice on a sunny day after a long winter. My filet mignon was under cooked and they were on top of it. The chief even came to the table to apologize and make sure it was corrected to my satisfaction. The Caesar salad was on the small side but crisp and tasty. Christy, our waitress, was delightful. Attentive and full of positive vibes. And oh their gigantic mud pie was as good as I remembered.
Great environment, front lake view and really a place with a local character and vibe. Food is good, but nothing extraordinary...nice dishes to look at, but flavor is average.
The place is worth checking out, mostly for the view and location!
We had a wonderful time. We especially love Victor he is so charming. Such a great young adult.
The dishes were exceptionally well done. The pork chop and salmon dishes were excellent, and the carrot ginger soup was phenomenal.
Excellent food, fun server, great ambiance. We’ll be back!
It's an older place, kind of musty. Great view, service just ok, she screwed up our order and didn't really offer to fix it, my sweet kind husband is easy going and ate what she brought out. The food was good, not great, prices were high. Think one time was good enough for me. I'd go maybe for a happy hour and the view next time "IF" there is a next time.
Nice restaurant, delicious food, beautiful setting, and our server was very diligent.
Dinner was good. Special fish, halibut, was out. My lady’s lobster was excellent. The main complaint is probably one that keep me from returning is the noise level was very loud. Very hard to talk to the person right next to you. The acoustics are very bad in there. The tables are virtually on top of each other. Food great , service ok, ambiance to loud thus poor.
Bday. Great time
Clam chouwder was cold and tastelessness
Salad ordered but never delivered
Salmon was the special and dry reduction was sour
Signature dessert was fabulous
We absolutely loved Jakes on the Lake as a post hike, easy cleanup, classic spot on Lake Tahoe. My Brother went for drinks on his 30th back in June so we decided to drive up from Reno (35 mins) to try the food. Arrived early and had drinks at the bar while they got our table ready. The atmosphere was incredible and the food was to die for. I live in nyc and am constantly searching for great food in other cities. Jake's hit all the marks and we had a very very special night with the fam. I would recommend this restaurant to pretty much everyone!
Beautiful atmosphere full moon!!! Great service and food.
Everyone's meal was excellent, but our first round of drinks came seconds before our entrees. Their service lost points this evening.
We are accustomed to excellent service and food quality at Jake's. Our visit on the 10th was a big let down. From painfully slow service to watery drinks to over cooked seafood, it was not an enjoyable evening. It will be a while before go back.
Great lobster tails! And wonderful views from the upstairs balcony.
The four of us agreed that the food was okay. We liked the beautiful views and enjoyed watching the boats. The service was outstanding and the wait person went out of her way to get us the calimare that is usually only served in the bar area.
