We had not been to Jake's for a while. They have a fairly new manager and the service and friendly atmosphere was greatly improved. We will be more frequent diners after this last experience.

We are never disappointed here, always a warm welcoming experience with fabulous food. My scallops were perfect in both preparation and presentation, and my husbands Steak was perfect as well. Best creamed spinach!!! It’s always a treat.

Would highly recommend. A few drawbacks...service started a little slow. Was a little cold in the corner. Flourless chocolate cake was pretty bland. A good steakhouse should always offer key lime pie. Other Than that, a pretty outstanding visit!. Butternut squash soup was incredibly good. Filet was perfectly prepared. Get the bernaise sauce. Flavor was so good with the steak. Side dishes were plentiful. Bread loaf was great. A really wonderful meal. Will go back again...and again..

I go to Jakes 5-6 times a year.. I would say the food is consistently very good. The fish and seafood is very good (the walleye is great!), the brusslesprouts are the BEST!!!!.. steaks are very good but not prime.. great supper club atmosphere with nice servers.

I cannot compliment enough the person who took care of us. I believe it was Eric or Aaron. I should have written his name down because I definitely would ask for him. He was very personable and was readily accessible for our needs. A big thank you to him.

Prices were high. A spotted cow cost $10.50 (Tap). Both mine and my husband’s order were incorrect. I order a ribeye with Jake’s secret sauce, wild rice and Mac & Cheese. When they brought it out they gave it to the wrong person. My husband ordered the ribeye in cracked peppercorn with double baked potatoe and cream of spinach. His steak came out without cracked peppercorn, his potato was over cooked and burnt.

Will definitely go elsewhere next time. Very disappointed.

Nice hostess and waitress however the dining room was very cold and their room heater cycles so the room would periodically warm and then become uncomfortably cold although we were all wearing sweaters. The hill of onion rings was huge, not greasy and very good. One of the entree specials was halibut. Sadly, It was very dry, over cooked and under seasoned. The NY strip was cooked to order and ok. We also had the duck which was terrible! It was over cooked and had a mealy texture. Honestly it seemed like it was re-cooked and may have been spoiled. My husband and I both felt sick after dinner and all night long. ( we were the only people to try the duck). The creme brûlée dessert was nice. We all had not been to Jakes in many years and now have no intention of going back.

The service was very good. With the exception of the delicious onion straws, the portions were small and the prices were high (similar to a high end Chicago steak house but lacking portion size and ambiance). The drink prices were especially high to include rail brand cocktails. Despite the good service, I would not recommend.

Went to Jake’s for a business meal. The drinks, appetizers and meal were outstanding as usual. The service was great as the meal was paced perfectly. Their steaks are always great but have enjoyed their pork chops and crab legs. The fireplace in the dining area is nice during winter too. We will be back soon.

Jake's supper club is one of my favorite spots. I'd have to say last night was a little and I mean really little disappointment for me. The soup was to die for but the king crab legs were just ok and not very meaty. Seemed like a lot $$ for a little. I guess that's why I usually have the steaks. They are outstanding as are the sides. Brussel sprouts still my fav.

Jakes is a Historic Gem for foodies and has evolved with the times to include seafood and seasonal options. It was sad when the North Avenue location closed - and so great that the Brookfield location survived. And now also has Jakes Burgers that we would also highly recommend.

All servers -hosts, bartenders and waiters:waitress-are always pleasant and hard working to make every dining experience enjoyable. Jakes is known for their steaks-but the seafood options and seasonal sides are always a great choice too.

Jake’s opened in the early 1960’s when you could get a good tenderloin fillet dinner (with a cocktail) for $5.00. The steaks were always tender, and the onion rings superb. Many years and many steaks and multitudinous onion rings later, Jake’s is still delivering the same quality product -albeit at a much higher price. Jake’s has been one of my favorite area restaurants for years; my entire family loves this place! Highly recommended. (Half price wine bottles on Wednesdays too)

So disappointed! My husband and I have been going to Jake’s for years and things have changed. We paid $40 for a filet and it didn’t include both a salad & potato. You could have a salad OR 2 sides. The 2 sides were mostly different kinds of potatoes. The salad contained only greens, not a piece of tomato or crouton in sight. The filet was average at best and the 8oz seemed smaller than that. My husband ordered a twice baked potato that was burned on the bottom.

When the dinners arrived they were hot and exactly as ordered. The food was amazing and the presentation was great. Our clients were very pleased with dinner and we were happy we took them to your restaurant. The bartenders were very friendly. THE NIGHT WAS PERFECT. THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE.
