Great Porterhouse. But food not very hot. Think they forgot it. But we enjoyed none the less.
Staff friendly and cordial. Food always good.

My daughter and I had porterhouse steaks which were perfectly cooked, my creamed spinach was awesome. Cesar salad was great, her new England clam chowder was nothing like Bigelows serves! 5 stars fur the food anyway cuz the steaks were on the money! Service lost a star because I had to ask for bread. I tipped the same I would anyway.

When I walked in the restaurant the place smelled like mildew carpet. The appetizers tasted like frozen food that was warmed up. The drinks were ok. The entree tasted good, but then I ended up getting sick from the food later that evening. I would not go back.

Seats have rips in the. Place looks old and worn out. Food could be much better. Steak was dry and over cooked ..so we’re the sides. Not impressed at all.

First time dining in the LI version of Jake's Steakhouse and I was pleasantly surprised. A Bronx boy through and through, my loyalty will always reside with the Bronx location, but Jakes LI offered all of the familiar comforts that the original location offers. From the comfortable setting to the delicious menu options, it was like walking into a home away from home. My wife and I tried items off the specials menu and were not disappointed. The food was tasty and perfectly seasoned. We washed everything down with a bottle from their comprehensive wine selection and a delicious cocktail from the bar. The staff was friendly and attentive and it was evident that the management was on top of their game. Needless to say we will be back the next time we are out east.

Ordered two filets. One was overcooked and dry. Bread felt stale although flatbreads were good. Ran out of one of the desserts ordered. Waitress was superb.

Soup was ice cold; waitress was walking around with eyes to the floor. Finally had to get up and get her! Otherwise, ok. Need more attentive wait staff.

On a recent visit, my husband and I ordered the T-Bone steak and petite filet mignon, respectively, with lobster mac and cheese as a side. The food and service were excellent.

I went with my family which included my husband, 9 yo, 1 yo, and myself. The service was friendly and professional, the food delicious, and the atmosphere was nice without being stuffy that you can get from many steakhouses. I live a half hour away and I will most definitely be returning because of our fantastic experience here last night!

Jake’s is the best. We had a great waitperson, Peter, friendly and personable. The food is top shelf. Watermelon martini was very tasty. As always from the wedge salad to crab cakes to the flavorful filet mignon s with blue cheese and sauce, so good. It was my brother Mike Leahy’s Birthday, so pleased with this restaurant. We meet here since we’re in Brooklyn and brother is in LI.
What a great place, we even celebrated Easter there as well and their menu was on point. You have to really eat here. A gem of a restaurant!🤗

Jake's turned into the perfect spot for a late afternoon Mother's Day dinner. Our table of 4 had a grand time. Our waitress, Nicole, was always present and cheerful. The food was excellent. Mother's Day can be a difficult day to dine. We found the food and service to be exceptional which is saying something on this day. Jake's didn't skimp. I had a Chilean Sea Bass that was priced fairly and was prepared perfectly. We have always liked Jake's but it was easily as good today as it typically is. Great visit.

Was party of three. Had to sit in bar area as told there were only two 3 person tables which were in the bar area and no other tables for 3 available in dining area for hours which would be a 4 person table. They also could not put two 2 person tables together. They were booked.

Very very noisy. Loud bar patrons (including children) a couple of feet away from our heads/seats. They moved us to the other 3 person table in the bar area but still noisy with patrons, music and TVs. One out of three chairs at each table was sticky.

Had option to leave but stayed anyway as first time we were there. Hoped food was better.

My medium skirt steak was well done with not a sign of pink. Was told they could return it but opted not to, as uncomfortable returning food. Brought it home for pets. Son’s strip steak was good and husbands filet mignon a bit salty.

Have found better steak places on Long Island for similar price. Would not recommend without sharing experience.

Food was delicious and plentiful....disappointed that the mussels were removed from the Restaurant Week Appetizer selections. Skirt steak was a little overdone; more medium than medium rare, but tender and delicious nonetheless.
