Choose this restaurant from trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Plenty of choice of steak and sides. Friendly helpful staff. It did us a few attempts to find in the shopping area but we were not disappointed.

We've eaten enough seafood here to float the Wisconsin, so we decided to try Jake's for BBQ. We were really impressed! Wife had the ribs/sausage platter and I had ribs/brisket. Ribs were superb! Really good brisket, and spicy sausage. We both had the brunswick stew, and it was good also. Clean restaurant, and good service. Look forward to large portions!

The service is good not great, the brisket and ribs are delicious the fries a tad too salty. The hush puppies are sweet an too crunchy.

We loved our first visit to jake's today! Great food, great service, and reasonable prices! They are also very friendly. The BBQ pulled chicken platter was out of this world. We also loved the BBQ chicken salad. Definitely try the sweet corn nuggets and the chicken wings. We are going to be back soon to eat our way through the... More

Jakes Smokehouse BBQ is a restaurant that welcomes you with the delightful aroma of pit-cooked barbeque. The menu choices are many. The sides are excellent. You may even reduce the size of certain meals at a slight discount, which is good for those who do not want large quantities. Our experience tonight was excellent in every way.

The barbecue nachos were light and delish! The mashed potatoes were creamy. Both the dry rub and sweet wings are tasty options.

Only one visit but loved that they had fire roasted apples and pulled chicken BarBQ. Service was slow with three large family groups. BarBQ sandwich had plenty of Grilled in BarBQ flavor even before the sweet sauce was added. Apples were tasty too Judy the right amount of sweetness. I arrived tired and thirsty and nearly feel asleep before I... More

We have dined at Jake's for years. This time we tried the family pack take out order. This option is overwhelming. The order includes a pound each of pulled pork, chopped pork, and beef brisket. Additionally, the package included a full slab of ribs and a quart of beans. Everything was outstanding. The beans were a big surprise. We had... More
