We are not familiar with the Waukesha/Pewaukee area and when I was looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary it was between Jake's Restaurant and a couple of other options in downtown Waukesha. I am so glad I went to Jake's! The atmosphere is calm but still eloquent more of an upscale country house vibe. We sat by the... More

We've dined here a few times but agree that the service is better in the bar area. Jake's has an old school steakhouse feel, complete with a fireplace. Ambiance is dimly lit with comfortable seating and elegant tableware. It's great for couples, friends, or groups. The bar drinks are good and the wine list has some nicer options. They always...

If we are in town we go to Jakes for a steak and onion rings. That says it all. Perhaps the best Monday deal in Wisconsin. A good tenderloin with a heap of onion straws. Get a side of mushrooms in a cast iron pan and... ENJOY! P.S. Service was bland tonight. Too bad.

A business associate from the area took myself and two clients here for dinner. Even though I lived in the area for 5 years in the 90's I never knew of this cool place. If you want something different from the fancy downtown steakhouses (any city) check this place out. The food and service was excellent!

We have on more than one occasion enjoyed the pleasure of Jake's semi-private dining area that accommodates about 8-12 people. When we have family in from out of town this is one of our favorite places to enjoy dinner. As previous reviews have mentioned Monday is a great time to go if you are looking for a discount but we...

$18 burgers with Luke warm at best onion rings. Service good. Didn't like the meat or sauce. Will stick with their streaks next time.

Very, very nice--we had an excellent meal. It is pricey, but on Mondays, you get a Ribeye or tenderloin steak with choice of haystack onions, French fries, or baked potato for $13.95. The reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I don't think this special is made known once you get to the restaurant--it is on the website. They... More

Ribeye or tenderloin with a choice of baked potato, fries, or shoestring onion rings for $13.95. Very good, hubby loves their baked french onion soup and I have the corn. Delicious. Complimentary bread is nice and warm. I only go on Monday nights with a reservation.

We had never been here, but wanted to try something new. The place has the look and feel of an old Wisconsin supper club. We called and were told that we could have immediate seating. It was almost that way with a slight detour to order a drink at the bar as table was not cleared. We have now been... More
