    Was our number one restaurant for over 40 years. There is clearly a problem here. Entered to a sign on the door that stated pretty much no walk ins. Had to have a resie to be seated. We did have one, and has a cocktail and 2 apps at the bar with our party of 6. It was the bartenders 2 nd day. He was pleasant and efficient. There is now only one dining area in the bar and it appears they have removed half of the bar stools. The deviled eggs and rumaki were good. The Hostess brought them out. We were seated and our server who was very polite and accommodating, informed us we would have to be patient, as he was the only server. There were maybe 6 other groups of people being served. He did the best he could. The bread was hard and not fresh. My son ordered the duck, but changed his order to bone in filet when we were told there was no wild rice. Also no short ribs. The Walleye which used to be delicious that my husband had was dry and unappealing and tasteless. My son’s bone in filet was over cooked and tough. The soups were hot but odd texture to the mushroom. I know a ribeye has fat, but mine tasted like Ponderosa. The Baked Potato was good. All in all, the saddest experience we have had here in years. When we returned home, I had a voice message which I missed. It was from Jake’s saying they had to cancel our resie due to staffing issues, and that if I called them , I would receive a gift card for dinner for 6. Since I didn’t see it, we went anyway and were served. I sincerely hope this gets turned around, but the outlook appears dim. We had a good run while it lasted! Cheers to all of the employees that have been so wonderful to us over the years , to The Replogle family for the pleasure of a stellar dining experience for all of those years.

    Service was great even though they were short staffed David and Keyana (manager) did an outstanding job getting everything to us in a timely manner. They worked as a team and were always friendly. The food was hot and delicious.

    i have been going to jakes for over 30 years....they have entirely new staff in the restaurant and as new employees they were doing thier best to accomodate everyone ....they were very polite and attentive and i would not hesitate to return...you just need a little bit of patience as they work through a few staffing issues...food was excellent as always.

    The food was amazing...as expected. My steak and everyone else in the party were pleased with their meal. We did need to ask our server for butter/sour cream for our baked potatoes. That seemed odd. Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed and the bar was no help. Bartender did not know how to make an Old Fashioned. It was NOT good. This will not stop us from returning. The food was worth it and it mat have been an off night.

    Our steaks were of excellent quality and very nicely prepared. The twice baked potato and side of mushrooms were also very good. Our Caesar salads were not very good; I believe they were premade too far in advance so the lettuce was soggy and the flavor was boring. Both the table and bar service was pretty good but the bar was not well stocked. They had no wine available by the glass as they were completely out of stock. Also they had no back stock of our preferred rye whisky so we had to get a substitute after our first manhattans. The offered explanation was no delivery from their distributor, but this was a Saturday night! We ordered a bottle of wine which was overpriced for its quality. In general I believe their wine list mark up over retail is much higher than other restaurants for the same quality.

    My recent visit was VERY disappointing. Prior to this last visit, I made two other attempts to make a dinner reservation. Both times, “Jakes” cancelled my reservation, once claiming plumbing issues and the other claiming they were experiencing electrical issues. Upon arriving, the bar and bar dining tables were completely empty. There was no welcoming, smiling hostess, only a young, new staff person looking lost and confused. When seated, we began looking around for familiar faces, there were none to be found. They were ALL new staff members. It was obvious to those patrons who dine frequently, that something was terribly wrong. They did provide us with a menu but they appeared very unfamiliar with their own menu. We were then asked if we were ready to order food. We stated we would like to order cocktails first. When we finally received our cocktails, the waiter stated that this would be the last lemon drop I would get tonight. I asked why and he stated I got the last of the vodka. We waited longer than usual to receive our food; it was adequate. Patrons had to ask for steak knives, butter, sour cream and their sides for their entrees. The restaurant was not full. For Jakes on a Saturday night, that was very unusual. A person came to our table and stated she was the new manager. I took this opportunity to ask her where are all the regular staff members? She stated that many of the “staff members were older and all of them decided to retire at once”. I asked if the restaurant is no longer going to be the Jakes that we all love and have enjoyed dining at for decades? She stated, “we are going to be slowly changing things”. To say that I am sad about this change is truly an understatement. When leaving the restaurant, the bar was empty, no one in sight. Typically, the bar was packed with people and laughter, barely having room to maneuver a way out to the parking lot. I hope dedicated patrons get a truthful statement regarding this once fine dining restaurant.

    Very sad to see all new staff … very shorthanded. Bad service but not their faults, they are all brand new trying to learn. Would love to know why all of the good people who’ve been there for a long time have left. Must’ve been treated poorly. Very sad because we used to come to Jake’s at least once per month. We won’t be back anytime soon.

    First of all, we have always had a great meal at Jake’s. We usually have 3 - 4 meals a year. Last night was very disappointing for our Birthday dinner. The bar did not have Bombay gin. Our Old Fashions had double the amount of mix and very little brandy. We ordered oysters about 10 minutes before we ordered our meal. The salads came before our oysters. Time went by and we finally got our appetizers when we finished salads. We sat for a long time and our steaks came to the table. Mine you, all of the salads, appetizers, bread and empty glasses were still on our table. We, not the waitress, started stacking the plates, and glasses so she had room to put down our steaks. At best, our steaks were lukewarm. We said nothing because the entire meal was a joke and we just wanted to get out. I had to ask for the check three times. This was the first time in a very long time that I left a small tip. I’m usually a 20 - 25 percent tipper.

    I’ve been to Jake’s dozens of times and this was by far the worst experience I’ve had there. Not only was I overcharged and they couldn’t figure out how to fix it; but they were severely understaffed, and most of the staff that was there, was brand new. They did the best they could, but the service was not good, the food tastes like they were just doing whatever they could to get the food on the table and not the quality we are used to when going to Jake’s.
