    Our server Zac was wonderful! Was looking forward to the fish & chips. States that it’s beer batter but not light and crispy as you would expect. The coating was dry and heavy. And we had to fight off 2 flies during the meal!

    My steelhead trout was perfectly cooked. Often restaurants overcook fish and it is dry and has no favor. The friendly waitress recommended fish and I wasn't sorry. We enjoyed our meal and got to our concert on time.

    Made reservation for 7:30. Got seated at 8:05. Waited outside as there was no room to stand inside. Probably would have been seated even later if we didn’t go back inside to inquire and stand there staring at the hostess. Our waiter was terrific and the food was great.

    We had some specific dining needs ( low or no sodium). Explained them to the waiter who helped create a wonderful menu of all the foods that we wanted with no sodium. Even substituted delicious oven roasted potatoes with our main dishes and sauce on the side. Prepared our mussels which were fabulous, with unsalted butter. We didn't have to make all theses decisions on our own. Always enjoy great food and service at Jakes Famous Crawfish. Our waiter, Rob was the best. Thanks.

    Food is very good. Service was a little rushed, crowded, but it was Saturday when I visited. Wait time for a table with reservation was about 10 minutes. Service was on time and no interruptions. Good value overall.

    Credit for honoring a last-minute request for a window booth to get a quieter table with more room. Downrate for no cushion on the wooden benches; they are very uncomfortable for any period of time. The service is impeccable and well-informed. He was upfront about why no razor clams (wife's favorite); they are short-staffed in kitchen prep, but all restaurants are short-staffer. The reality is that Jake's is expensive. The food is excellent, the presentation is very well done, and the service was quite professional. But $38 for an 8 oz crab leg meat appetizer is too much. The $34 salmon saute with mushrooms was excellent, and the waiter did explain that there were salmon chunks in mostly mushrooms and not a salmon fillet; he gets credit for making sure we wouldn't be disappointed over the dish's compensation.

    Food was rich and traditional rather than sophisticated; portion size substantial; our waiter was good; restaurant was very busy and buzzing; front desk irritatingly laissez faire and need to be more individual customer oriented.

Excellent food, great wine pairings and delightful service in an environment that we will never forget. Dr. and Mrs. Mike Matson Bainbridge Island, WA

    Service was inattentive. Bread was stale. Fish was undercooked and vegetables were over seasoned with salt. Other tables sent food back. Second time in a row with a poor meal at Jake’s. Very disappointing as Jake’s used to be a top restaurant choice for me. You’ve lost a good customer!

    We sat in a booth that had a noisy and profane people that kept bumping the back of our booth. The crab legs were not fresh, they didn’t have the wine we ordered, service was very slow and the food was not delivered until a an hour after we were seated.

    We have been eating at Jakes for over 40 years. We like the ‘old school’ atmosphere and until our visit yesterday, the good quality seafood. Last night was an experience where we will no longer be dining there again. In short the quality of the food was a real disappointment. The salad had lettuce that was prepped the day before or out of a bag, croutons that came out of a box, and parm that was not freshly grated. A number of things on our entree’s were inedible, like the rice was super gummy, below the crab legs in the sauté was swimming in butter, I could go on but you get the picture. The quality of the food does not match the price and or expectations. You can tell we did not get just a bad plate but this is how they are preparing things…will taking my dining elsewhere which is disappointing given our longevity dining here…
