Go for the Dungeness crab legs with artichoke and mushrooms....pricey but worth a splurge once a year when the crab are in season. There are probably other good things on the menu, but I only get the crab. One complaint is on wine prices...a wine that is $26 at the wine shop should not be $86 at the restaurant, especially when getting a $47 main course. Please get real with your wine list.

We had a great time at Jake's, as always! I highly recommend the stuffed halibut. Excellent clam chowder too!

This was our second time at Jake's and it was just as good, if not better, than the first! We had a reservation for 7:45, checked in a bit early, and were seated promptly at 7:45. The waitress was kind without being overbearing. We got a table right by the window, nice and cozy and romantic. While we waited for our table, we sat at the bar and the bartender was very friendly, not to mention the drinks were just fantastic! The food was everything you could hope for--done perfectly and without having to wait too long. I will definitely be back; no better seafood place I've been to in Oregon.

So fresh they have to update the menu twice daily. Varied and exceptional menu of seafood. Try the pisco sour (cocktail). Excellent, authentic, and not overly sweet. Mini desserts are a fun way to finish a meal. Perfect size since the dinner portions are generous.

I always enjoy Jake’s Crawfish. At my age, simply providing wonderful food isn’t enough. There are lots of restaurants that do that but they serve it in noisy concrete boxes with loud music. I hate that! Jake’s gives you a first rate meal in civilized surroundings. That’s why I keep coming back.

Great historic spot. Maintains it's charm. Extensive menu. My wife and I shared a calamari appy plentiful portion easily good for two. They were crispy outside and tender inside. Main course she had halibut and I had steelhead baked with a horseradish and Parmesan crust both were cooked perfectly and delicious.

Flawless. The food and service were perfect. My husband is hearing impaired and background noise makes almost any restaurant experience an unhappy event for us. As it happens, our dining room was respectfully quiet. I cannot overemphasize how very pleasant this evening was for us. A truly enjoyable evening!
