We enjoyed an excellent meal at Jake's Seafood, open off-season. Casual, order at counter and wait for number to be called. Prices were reasonable and the seafood was fresh and delicious. Lobster rolls are available cold with mayo or hot with drawn butter, mine was good sized with lots of nice claw meat (my favorite! ). My husband's baby Maine... More

A nice locally owned (the owner was cooking when we visited) seafood spot. The fish chowder was awesome. The cornbread was the best I have ever had, and generous. The fish and chips (I opted for onion rings) was superb. Worthe= a trip,

Cute little place that's easy to miss, but definitely worth the visit/stop. The staff is great - super friendly & nice & while the food selection is not the largest, it's reasonably priced & definitely enough variety ro satisfy everyone's different tastes. The food was really good & fresh! Also, their ice cream is amazing!! Would definitely visit again!

Happy to find a local restaurant open this time of year serving seafood. Enjoyed the fried shrimp, clam strips and sea scallops. Good prices for a good value meal. Will be back

We recently stopped at Jakes on our way to a resort . It was almost closing time but everyone was fine with our ordering food. The buttered Lobster rolls were fantastic and I've had a few lobster rolls! The onion rings that accompanied it were great too. We needed some help in finding the place we were going to and... More

This is your place if you like local, fresh seafood (mostly fried or grilled) in a very casual setting. At Jake's you order at the counter, take a seat and wait till your number is called. The quick-order chef whips delivers your order very quickly. Food is typical. Excellent chowder (not heavy, has real clams), fresh butternut squash soup. The... More

There is a parking lot in front so no issue there. This place is very casual and you order at the window then pick up your order when it is ready. It is fairly small with some booths and tables and it was quite busy while we were there. There is a good variety to choose from - even non-seafood... More

Stopped in for lunch. You place your order at a counter, and when your order is ready they bring the order to your table. Grab an empty table as there are not many tables to sit at, and the place is usually packed. Very clean inside and the service is good. We ordered soup and a sandwich and both were... More
