Sports bar area and OK to bring your kids with family seating. Good choice of foods with ribs my favorite, hard to pass up when on special.

Art and Jakes will appeal to a certain demographic. I have liked the food, but found the place too noisy and difficult for conversation. It is ringed with TV sets, set to many different channels. You can't hear anything on them because of the generally loud conversation and atmosphere. Some will find this "fun" or "exciting." At my age I... More

It sounds so dorky but we have gone from dining out in downtown Rochester every weekend night to treating ourselves to either dine in or take out of Art and Jakes in Washington. We went to watch many football games at both Washington and Shelby locations. We love their salads!

Everyone else's meals looked really good. I ordered the fish & chips, and it was gross. The batter was SoOo greasy... I opted to pick the batter of and just ate the tiny fish filet inside. Not impressed at all BUT, at least you can read from my bad meal choice. If you're in the mood for a salad Margie... More

Art and Jakes food is compares to some of the best restaurants. The atmosphere attracts families, small groups and small groups - kind of like a family friendly sports bar. It is easy of find your favorite food but you'll never be disappointed if you stray to the large selection on the menu.

We ordered take out salads and fajitas last Sunday night and it was perfect! This was a recommendation for take out from our friends and it was perfect since our area is really lacking options. A&R for the win!

Art & Jakes is a great place whether you want a burger or salad, or something different like their Eastern European specialties. The soups are homemade and delicious, with many different choices as opposed to the typical chicken noodle or vegetable beef. Service is always good & friendly.

Art & Jakes has a few locations, but this review is based on my experience at the Washington location. They have either low tables or high top tables with little tv sets. The options on the menu are really great. I always have a hard time deciding what to order because it is all so good. The service is always... More
