Jake's is my getaway place when my family is off doing something else. I absolutely love sitting on the pub side! When Jake's moved and reinvented itself several years ago, frankly, we were disappointed. The former north end Wooster location was more upscale and I think it was just...better. The new location on Old US 30 is most definitely much... More

Have brought friends and family to show off, but disappointed in food for a steak house. Not the same as old restaurant off 83. Service great, tho.

I had the seafood pasta and my friend had a steak. Great food! My seafood pasta was likely the best I've ever had and I have had this dish many times when I lived in Tampa from Shells restaurant. Portion was generous and had alot of seafood. I would highly recommend!

An Okay experience as far a food was concerned. Steak was not spectacular, but not terrible, either. Server was pleasant but not enthusiastic, despite it being a slow night. Not someplace I'd rush back to.

So they moved away from the North side of Wooster several years ago. Their newer location is definitely beautiful looking from the outside, I'll give you that. Unfortunately once they moved the food quality went down dramatically. The burgers are no longer good. The waitstaff is mediocre. They have a yucky salad bar and dinner bar full of pastas and...

Food was ok but waiter was lacking. Had to ask for items several times. He repeatably questioned members if our group that just wanted soup. And was rude when serving us. Then At the end of our meal we realized he had not served our salad, his only offer was we could take our salad with us, really ?

I've only ate here a handful of times and have had a handful of issues.. Horrible service, mediocre food (at best) and its dark and not inviting inside. Spend your money somewhere else!

Wide variety on the menu and seating choices were varied. Very nicely decorated and equipped restaurant. Our sandwiches were very tasty and the service was very good.

Jake's has always been the favorite of friends, but never a place that I'd venture to on my own. I don't eat meat, and Jake's has little to offer. Since they relocated, they are less convenient to Wooster, and the atmosphere went from charming or quaint, to plastic.
