    Our Waiter Mr. Echeverri was tremendous - personable, welcoming, informative, engaging and represented Jakes well! All-in-all, our pre-dining and dining experiences were great except for the noise - the music in the bar was overwhelming and the dining room became loud w/dining parties - to be expected. Comfortable dining chairs, lovely setting and quite nice all-around. We appreciate the true fine-dining experience and the good food with great waiters and ambiance. Chefs did a great job in food preparation and presentation. It is really nice when the staffers are welcoming to patrons - from the greetings to the formality of human interaction. Training shows and human kindess goes far. Top notch and we'll keep the JDT as our go-to restaurant. Stay strong with your professionalism and be the shining star in the sea of mediocres. Thank you for the ask!

    The 3 entrees that were cooked on the grill all had black burnt crust on bottoms. The one entree that was not cooked on the grill was very good. My son wanted his hamburger medium but it was very very well overcooked done, He didn’t eat it. The salmon would have been better if it didn’t have a black crust on the bottom that killed the taste of the rest of it. My other son’s filet minion was pink in middle but crusted black on both top and bottom. He cut the top and bottom off and ate the middle. I usually like Jake’s but the cook on 2/13/24 has an issue with burning his grill food.

    The food and service at Jakes downtown was excellent. The noise level was terrible for a mid week 5:30 reservation. Our group of 5 had a difficult time hearing each other. Not sure what can be done about this but unfortunately it will influence our choice of gathering .

    We were celebrating and had made reservations weeks earlier. Cortland, our waiter, whom has waited on us numerous times over the last few years, was outstanding and made excellent recommendations for wine pairings with each course. Our table had two appetizers, the crab and the salmon cakes, they were ok. Our party chose two specials of surf and turf, a baseball steak and Elk medallions. Other than being a tad salty for our palettes, the meals were lovely. Deserts, the butter cake wonderful as always and cheesecake. Thank you Jakes and Cortland, we enjoyed and celebrated.

    The food was excellent, but our waiter was very absent minded. He would ask if we wanted so and then forget to bring it. This continued throughout our meal including having our dessert brought to the table in a plate after we ordered it to go.

    Jake’s downtown has not disappointed yet! The char crusted ribeye is to die for and the Lincoln logs (ribs) are amazing! The signature BBQ sauce is the best I’ve ever had on ribs! The service is awesome! The atmosphere superb! Very reasonable pricing as well! We HIGHLY recommend Jake’s downtown!

    My husband and I dined here on the last night of our vacation. The food was delicious. I had the bacon wrapped fillet mignon and my husband had the prime rib. Both excellent. Our server was lovely and very attentive. We had reservations and were seated right away. The only glitch was a longer than usual wait time between our salads and main courses. Our waitress was apologetic and even the manager came over to let us know our food was coming. We were luckily in no hurry so it really didn’t matter to us, but I can see how it would be stressful if you were under a time constraint. Nevertheless , all things considered, we would definitely come here again next time we are in town.

    28 yr. Anniversary dinner and food was mostly good. Wife got the chef cut Ribeye and that was spectacular, I got the prime rib and it was severly chewy and alot of tendons still in it. But mashed taters were good and the drinks and cheesecake were wonderful. Had never been to Jakes and was hoping for something a bit quieter...not candlelight but my wife and I struggled talking in normal tones and we sat less than 2 feet apart. Erin our waitress was fantastic! Will go again, but probably during the middle of the week in hopes of a quieter setting and will not order the Prime rib again.
