Jake’s is a great place to celebrate all happy occasions. Westly was a great server! Very attentive and professional.
We will be back for our 50th Anniversary❣️
Jakes is a great old school restaurant with fabulous fish selections, excellent bar and outstanding service.
The food was fair and overpriced; the waiter was excellent
Food was excellent - 4 out of 4 for our group. The waiter was totally friendly and attentive - obviously experienced. He made us feel as valued customers and took order efficiently (without a pad). The atmosphere is "Old Portland" which suited us fine. As a long-time Portlander I knew what to expect and our out-of-town guests were impressed. I'm not so much in touch with pricing, but the portions like the quality of the meals were very good. (I am vegetarian and my needs were also accommodated off-menu.)
Food great, as usual, good wait-staff, 20 year old dude at door seating us for a 5 o'clock reservation in a near empty restaurant with a "quiet table" translated smallest, darkest, worst table in back where munchkins (I'm 6'5") who are getting a comp'd meal should be sat, skewered the whole dining experience, making me wish I had the foresight to flip the guy $50 to seat us at a decent table. I've been coming here since 1975, the sturgeon my go-to.
Seafood entries consistently excellent every time we have come here.
We enjoy the old-fashioned, historic ambiance.
Just ok nothing special.
Crab, shrimp and Brie cheese stuffed halibut? Oh. My! Our friends from Indiana visited recently and raved about the special meal they had at Jake’s. Since we’re all about fresh halibut, especially when it’s stuffed with delicious, creamy goodness, we came to celebrate the end of our school year early and weren’t disappointed. We had fresh oysters, mojitos, scrumptious soup and incredible entrees and are still smiling from the five-star experience. Thanks, Jake’s. We’re thrilled we all made it through the pandemic unscathed. Glad to be back!
Rustic, old school place. I was visiting from Arizona where full capacity and no masks for vaccinated—-became very obvious that I wasn’t in AZ anymore. However, wait staff compensated well and we had an enjoyable meal. Seafood pasta was moderately bland. Stuffed salmon was exquisite!
Food was so gross and nothing is fresh!
Excellent service and food as always!
As always Jake's delivered on excellent food. Smaller menu than normal, and some of their famous desserts were not available, but food was fabulous.
As usual, great food, great service. Looking forward to next visit.
Thanks for accommodating our group in a separate room. This was the perfect place to celebrate graduation. Perfect service, great food. We always go back!
The food was good as always, but the service was pretty bad this time. We waited forever to finally give the full order, and it took more than an hour to get the food (no bread & butter served while waiting, which was default before). Crab & shrimp stuffed salmon (or halibut) is highly recommended though.
Quiet and relaxing, lots of space between diners, attentive service and every bite of food was delicious. Pan fried oysters and clam chowder were fabulous. Great to return after 18 months!
Wonderful and Special experience for my husband’s birthday.
It was a Wednesday night, we had a reservation, but we had to wait 20 minutes to get seated. They tried to seat us (my husband, me, and our two kids, celebrating our wedding anniversary) in a stuffy side room with a large table of loud people, so I asked if we could take one of the booths in the main room--most of them were open. We were able to get a booth. Clearly understaffed that evening. It took another 10-15 minutes for server to arrive and she stopped by infrequently thereafter. My kids didn't get their drink orders taken for the first 45 minutes. Food was below par compared with previous visits. My son and I split the sauteed crab legs and they came out dry and chewy. Not good.
I had oysters which were very fresh, and Bouillabaisse which was outstanding. It is tomato based rather than saffron/anise (I couldn’t taste either). Great service. A bit noisy.
Food and bar service exemplary, as always. Cosmomimosa delightful! Steelhead dinner and shrimp etouffe absolutely delicious.
Great classic restaurant for a special occasion. Such variety of seafood to select from. Wait staff knowledgable, understated, respectful of space and timing.
Fine, except ordered seafood fettuccine that came in an Alfredo sauce that menu did not specify; pasta itself was mushy.
It was a great experience and I would return to this place.
Once again, superb food and service! Jake’s Crawfish never disappoints! The stuffed Halibut was wonderful! It wasn’t sister and her husband’s first time at Jake’s Crawfish and they loved it! Thank you 🙏
This was our first time at Jake's Famous Crawfish. We are so sad that we hadn't been before. It was amazing. The staff was super friendly and the food was absolutely phenomenal. Can't wait to go back again soon.
Waiter acted like he was having a bad day and was verging on rude. The food was good
We enjoyed our dinner very much. Food and service were wonderful. We were celebrating a birthday and Jake's made it even better.
Food is absolutely delicious
The food was delicious, and so were the drinks! We are locals and haven’t gone in a long time. Pleasantly surprised!
Amazing!! My friends and I met on Memorial Day for an early lunch and wow. It was so good. Monica was our waitress and she was very friendly and provided great service for our table. We each had something different to eat and each had a different cocktail, again, all were great. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much for giving us a great experience:)
I’ve been visiting Jake’s for several years now, and this year’s visit was disappointing. Acknowledging the fact the pandemic still overhangs every public business, Jake’s wasn’t ready - the quality of the food was average and they seemed under staffed. The same great location and setting, but it’s lost something.
The Washington Steelhead is amazing!
We have come to Jake's for the last 9 years to celebrate out daughter's birthday (we even did take-out last year during covid), but this year was different. There was only one server for what seemed like the whole restaurant and so he couldn't be as attentive as one would hope at a nicer place, took forever to get service and have him check on us. We had once drink come with a fly in it, food was just okay. We notified Jake's of our daughter's birthday when we made the reservation, but no one said a single thing to her. Which was disappointing because she was excited about being there. We always order the chocolate purse and of course they no longer carry. Was overall a very disappointing experience.
They had our table request ready but it was so nice they moved us outside. Great service and everything that goes with it. Could not have had a better 60th birthday. Have loved Jake's for 23 years. Cheers
Food good, but Seated in area that was getting no ventilation and so was stuffy and hot
The standard by which we have judged all restaurants for over 30 years.
I ordered the Halibut, stuffed with crabmeat, shrimp and brie. It was good, but not great. The halibut was excellent but I could not really taste crab or shrimp...it may have been simply from a can. Ambience was excellent...I love these old, well established restaurants. Brandon our server was excellent as well. Yes I'll return but probably order something else.
Great historic art, back area fireplace is interesting, back small bar area is worth setting at
Excellent experience with Open table. Jake's was phenomenal as usual!
