Description: Jake's in East Meadow is a casual, yet sophisticated steakhouse serving the best steaks, chops, and seafood on Long Island. Complementing our excellent cuisine is our fine selection of craft beers available in our bar room as well as the outdoor beer garden. The bar and beer garden also features an inventive menu of bar snacks, burgers, and sandwiches. Our staff is friendly and professional and we look forward to serving you!

We have put off trying Jake's for a long time. No particular reason. In any case, it was a last minute decision on a Friday night to go there for dinner. Definitely glad we did. we started with a shrimp and crab dumpling special app. My wife had an almond crusted black sea bass and risotto special and I went with the land and sea special, which had a bone-in filet along with a lobster tail, sauteed spinach and horseradish mashed potatoes. Both dishes were fantastic. The filet was extremely tasty and cooked perfectly to order. Our 6 year old daughter went with the kids burger (ordered with the appetizer) and sweet potato fries. Burger was excellent as well. Unfortunately the little one fell asleep after finishing her ice cream (which we ordered before our dinner came out) so we passed on dessert.

Our only complaint was service itself was a bit slow.

All in all, it was a great dinner and we can't wait to go back.

Looking for a steakhouse close to home and we decided on Jake's. we were seated right away and the service was very attentive, if not too attentive at times. Not to say we were rushed, but it was hard to keep the conversation going without having the wait staff ask us how everything was. The caprese salad was very good, while the fried calamari was over cooked. My wife has the filet mignon and I had the braised beef short ribs which was very good, but the sides left a lot to be desired. He decadent gelato black out cake was excellent! Over all the food was a little above average, but for the prices they charge it needs to be a notch better.

Nestled on Hempstead Tpke in East Meadow is an unknown jewel of a restaurant called Jake's Steakhouse. You can pass it by if you don't look.
From the moment you pull up, your experience starts with valet parking - then the hostess seats you. The wait staff is exceptional. They are so attentive to every diners needs.
On our first visit, I ordered the shell steak, which was cooked to perfection just as I asked, and the taste was exceptional. My wife ordered the marinated skirt steak and it was delicious. The side dishes were exceptional also as was the steakhouse salad. The onion soup was out of this world.
The other main thing we liked about Jake's is it's casual yet professional nature. It is not like other 'stuffy steakhouses' with high prices. The prices here are very reasonable and it is a great place to bring family and friends.
We cannot wait to return to Jake's Steakhouse and try some of the other dishes they offer on their great menu.

Jakes"s Steakhouse appears to be a wonderful oasis in a very crowded busy section.
My husband and I went there because we specifically wanted a steak. The filet was prepared perfectly. The meat was tender and flavorful. The Caesar salad was the real deal. So good. We got Brussels sprouts with bacon as a side. They were just ok. Not much flavor.
The waiter was attentive but stuck to business. The manager stopped by our table and could not have been friendlier.
