Loved the ambiance--booths with big wood chairs and benches with curtains for private conversations.. Great steaks --claim to fame for years...seafood --especially chowders..warm rolls. Excellent service but not oppressive.

The food was good. The service was better than average. However I was expecting just a little more. My daughter had the fish and chips which were plentiful and crisp. The steak fries were also good. The appetizer calamari was just ok. Not super crispy. Actually they were a bit soggy and seemingly missing something. They had an aioli on... More

We visited Jake's a number of times during our visit to Portland. The restaurant had a Gentleman's Club decor and was very welcoming. We were there for both lunch and breakfast. Coffee was decent and food very good. I particularly liked the gingered beef salad for lunch. We did find the service inconsistent. While the staff were friendly, we were... More

Wonderful restaurant in the old Governors Hotel from the 20's, the woodwork is absolutely beautiful. We were sat in a booth by the windows, curtains on the windows,then large floor to ceiling curtains if you want privacy to close off your whole booth, romantic. Mary Ann was our server, professional all the way. French onion soup was flavorful, Caesar salad... More

Quick lunch in Portland Downtown. Very nice location and pleasant setting. Very professional service, very kind and efficient server. I had a Caesar salad: it was fresh and very delicious. Good wine by the glass choice. Not very cheap but acceptable

We were tired after a day of touring the city and wanted something close to where we were staying. My husband had NY strip which was done as ordered, I had the salmon stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat. Both of our meals were tasty, just thought that the prices were a bit high for the quantity and quality of the... More

Delicious food with great service and lively happy place. There were 5 of us for Sunday Brunch. We did not have a reservation but were lucky enough to be there early and seated almost immediately. Everyone enjoyed their food from ginger beef to blackened salmon, salads and soups!

We hit Jake's Grille for happy hour on a weekday. Had a Burger, and an order of Brussel Sprouts with a couple cocktails. Truly amazing sprouts. Next time, I'll skip the burger /fries and just get two orders of the sprouts. Service was a little slow considering we were one of three tables in the entire restaurant, but it was... More

The menu is generous and has a good variety of things to choose from. I feel like it is very dependable, and has something for everyone. I do like their clam chowder and the rotation of seafood has always been great. It is expensive for Portland and can feel a little touristy but you will have a great experience.

Great old-fashioned look and feel, but with new and upscale tastes. I'm not a big tuna fan, but they serve one of the best tuna appetizers I'd ever try. Steelhead salmon was also perfectly prepared. Nice wine selection for food pairings. I'd definitely recommend and come back here again. You won't be disappointed.

Thank michael W
