Wow, what a find this place was. Totally off the main beaten path in Brookfield. The restaurant is in converted barn , all timber so it has a lovely warm, cosy, friendly atmosphere. Food was fabulous! Service was spot on. Portions were huge. Wine list was very comprehensive. Definitely worth coming back.

Service and food were great. The only flaw would be the prep of the oysters. There were a number of shell fragments. It was almost to the point of having a fragment is every oyster. I would not recommend the oysters because of this issue.

Celebrated a birthday with friends. Good quality steak. Duck was delicious. Drinks reasonably priced. Entrees pricey. Service ok.
Our drinks were placed on paper coasters cut-out from old menus, however, which we all thought was a bit tacky for a quality steak house. Our server brought a special birthday sundae to the table which wasn't asked for. Nice gesture but when we went to pay the bill, there was a $7.00 charge for the sundae. Really! Spending hundreds of dollars for the bill and they couldn't provide a little complimentary sundae.

Overall good. However, the filet needs to be more juicy; it was bone dry. Also, the double baked potatoes are not what I remember them as; they used to be light and fluffy. They are now burned on top and dry. Excellent service. I do recommend Jakes.

This was our second visit to Jake's and it was every bit as good as the first - which was amazing! Julie was our waitress and did an excellent job! We enjoyed filets, mushroom soup, caesar salad, roasted broccoli and a complimentary sundae (you have to reward birthdays around the holidays!). Date night here is the best!

Food was good, but not great as it has been in the past. Lamb chops too chewy and sparse meat for the price. Double baked potatoes were hard and tasteless. Duck was meaty and delicious. Service was sporadic.

We have had better nights at Jake's restaurant. We were disappointed to be seated over 30 minutes late in the lounge section. We would have expected a seat in the dining area after making a reservation and waiting over 30 minutes longer. The service was a bit slow and the sides were cold when served to us. Otherwise, the food was good and the drinks were always full. We look forward to a better experience next time.

Looked up this restaurant , and Went to Jake's because we like escargot... upon arrival they did not have any.
Ordered Scallops as an entree and they were good, but for $36.00 , it was disappointingly small.
I ordered the $18 super house burger, and it was nothing special, in fact I've had much better for $12 , as they tried to mix short rib meat with sirloin, and it really wasn't that good. It wasn't bad, but they throw a bunch of onion-ring shoestrings on it and think it's worth $18.... it wasn't.

The sides were very ordinary... overall nothing special, but they price it like it's exceptional.

The HILL of onion rings was so yummy and large, I can only imagine how huge the mountain is. We had a gift card from here and decided to finally go because we are moving out of state and I am super disappointed we never went sooner because it was great. I had the filet trio and they were cooked PERFECTLY. I thought drinks were over priced but the food was priced very comparable to other steakhouses. Definitely worth it if you live in the area.

I’ve gone to Jakes many times years ago on 60th street and North. Enjoyed them a lot. This time found Jakes to be very expensive. I understand things go up over the years. Still the best onion rings in the area.

Friday battered fish was tough as if undercooked and potato pancakes were actually hard to cut with a fork and tasted as if they were deep-fried in oil that was old and had a strong burnt flavor.
Have dined many times at Jake’s over the years and always happy with the food and service. Something has changed to see quality drop this low. The wine was good🤙.
