  • Sit at the bar!
  • Try their burger with avocado bacon raw onion with a side salad no bun!
  • Excellent food, great bartenders. Unlimited mimosas for $12 at brunch and live jazz band on Sundays. Try the wings - chipolte orange are insanely hot, if you dare...
  • Mac and cheese with lobster!
  • Hey Jakes! Get some foursquare deals!!!
  • Split the Aztec burger and they cut it in half and gave us both plates with fries best server ever. Thank you Claire H!
  • Don't go towards closing for food- had to send our burger back twice- it was raw. Overall the food wasn't great- fries were mediocre imitations of mcdonalds and grilled calamari was not hot enough.
  • Try the Spice Trader. Tastes like a mind eraser with banana. Delish!
  • The good bar is in the basement.
  • Good for happy hours. But food is not the best
  • Stopped 4 a leisurely Sun. lunch: ordered a draft beer (good selections) & the summer salad (exceptional). Service was relaxed (go when u have time), waiter was great.. New young chef - worth trying!
  • So I thought this place was cool when I discovered the awesome sports bar downstairs and cool bartender... Then a swarm of children came in...so apparently it's a kid zone, beware
  • Olympic Viewing party in the Boiler Room at Jake's on Thursday, 2/13, 6:30pm-midnight. Come out and cheer on Team USA! Family and child-friendly activities including games, raffle and 50-50.
  • Buena variedad de cervezas!
  • Appetizers and drinks are your best bets at Jake's, though appetizers are rather salty. Stay away from the ordinary tasting burgers and steaks, which are a bit dry. Service is average.
  • Kids brunch! Yeah@
  • $15 for bottomless mimosas.
  • More like a restaurant than a diner (pricewise also) but no healthy options on the brunch menu. Most of the food is pretty rich and loaded. However if you are looking for hearty burgers, this is good
