Jake's Famous Crawfish

A landmark restaurant in the Portland dining scene, and the nation’s for that matter, is Jake’s Famous Crawfish on SW 12th Ave. in Portland. With over 110 years in service, it’s been serving up some of the best seafood from the northwest, becoming a tradition that’s unanimous with quality.

Some of the favorite dishes by diehard fans of Jake’s include Jake’s Étouffée, a dish of crawfish, chicken, and shrimp, served in a rich sauce, and the Alaskan Halibut Cheeks, seared in a picatta-like sauce (lemon, capers). Other classic seafood plates that they churn out daily include cod fish and chips, Oregon chilled spiced crawfish, and a special dish recommended by the chef, the wild Oregon rockfish, a local fish, seared with Oregon crabmeat, rum and garlic, served with asparagus and mashed potatoes.
