You can’t go wrong with Jake’s, we were lucky to get a table near the fireplace. Food was great, and Tina took very good care of us. The French Onion Soup was delicious!

I cannot believe 2 steaks, a couple of baked potatoes. And a glass of lemonade cost me 95 dollars? The supposed salads that came with the entree were an additional 11 dollars. Luckily I had a gift certificate, and we will not ever return to that overpriced restaurant

A lovely drive out in to the county, brings you to Jake's. Having never dined there before, I was surprised at it's remote feeling location. There is sufficient, well lit parking. The restaurant is easy to access. Restaurant staff is warm, welcoming, and professional. The food is delicious. My dining companion and I both ordered the filet trio - three 3 ounce filets, each with a different topping: Oscar, peppercorn crusted, and Bleu cheese butter. A salad or two sides is included. I chose the romaine ceasar and a double baked potato. My dining companion had the creamed spinach and double baked potato. Timing on delivery of food items was good. Everything was delicious. We also had drinks - Butternut Chardonnay for her and Woodford reserve old fashioned sour for me.
Absolutely worth the drive. Pandemic precautions (masks and social distancing) are taken seriously.

The meal was delicious. Our server was so polite and very informed of all dishes. She knew what to recommend. Our cocktails were perfectly balanced. The Jake’s burger was so perfectly done, it melted in my mouth. I would definitely go back!

Unfortunately I forgot that Waukesha feels immune from COVID 19 and thinks it’s okay to pack an indoor dining room. When we were initially seated it appeared they were doing the right things. Unfortunately it became clear as we were dining that they were filling up the room. We finished and left as soon as we could.

I hadn’t been to Jakes in a while, and it was as great as I remembered it to be. Four of us dined outside on the patio and it was a really pleasant experience. Service was outstanding with a very friendly and attentive waitress. We all ordered and thoroughly enjoyed steaks as our mains. Jakes has been, and continues to be, one of the finest restaurants for a steak in the area.

Drinks arrived without any cocktail napkins to place under them. The Brandy Old Fashion did not come with the requested olive garnish. When this was mention to the waiter (Andy) he brought the olives to the table holding them with his fingers by the toothpick on which they were impaled.

Time between the onion rings and salad and the entrees was excessive. Service overall was not up to what we've experienced in past visits.

The asparagus side dish was woody and tough and devoid of flavor. Very disappointing.

The two walleye entrees were excellent and Jake's chocolate sundae was a great way to cap off the dinner.

Monday is Throwback Special for steak and potatoes. Wonderful deal with delicious food. Jake's a relaxed atmosphere, and feel free to dress casual. We ate on the outside patio, which is small and nothing fancy-- about a dozen tables. Very comfortable on a pleasant September evening. Service is excellent and not too formal. Also have a kid's menu. Their regular menu is pricey, so see the website for the specials. We'll be back.
One drawback -- Jake's is next to a small airport, and each time we dined, a plane or two took off, which was extremely noisy for a minute or two.

This was our first time here and we had a great dinner and outstanding service. They had a bartender walk out right as we sat down at the bar and the team moved swiftly and you wouldn't even know they were short handed. We were very impressed with the steak and side dishes. Great old fashions!

The piped in music (jazz) was a little loud. The menu was fine, but a little hard to navigate what was included with dinner. It almost seemed designed to trick one into ordering extra cost sides. You can only find out the price of the specials if you ask. The food was good, but for the premium prices, not great. The halibut special was cooked correctly, but bland. Most of the drinks seemed reasonably priced.
