I have been to this establishment one 4 different occasions and every time I have waited at least an hour to get my food. I am done trying, I will no longer be a customer.

Had a sirloin cooked to perfection and my husband had a huge prime rib. Both cuts were excellent and cooked as ordered. A really nice atmosphere for young and old. Nice staff, pleasant and on point. Golden potatoes were very good and the house salads were good portions, with lots of added ingredients. Prices were reasonable too!

This was a perfectly serviceable steak restaurant. Nothing out of the ordinary, just good basic steaks and such. Service was friendly with a good attitude. Only odd thing was that they did not have a list of wines and beer served.

We played golf nearby on July 4th and went looking for some place open for lunch (that wan't a chain). Had never heard of Jakes, but they had a good selection of burgers, pretty good Reuben sandwich, OK salads. Like being able to patronize someplace that is not the same chain offering you find everywhere.

Love the staff. Too bad the sweet potatoes are gone. I used to go every day for lunch for a chicken breast and sweet potato. Now I only go on Friday nights. Too bad for Jakes they have lost a lot of business from me and my friends for lunch. BRING BACK THE SWEET POTATOES!!! I would have given a... More

I had dinner with my mom and daughter. It was a belated Mother's Day gift. The food was great and so was the service. I asked for the manager to stop by so I could complement both. After 20 minutes, we left without having spoken to any manager. I gave my complements to the hostess to pass on to the... More
