Family friendly and nice decor make this a sweet spot to eat out. The cornbread is out of this world, but they are stingy with it, bringing you only one slice per person. The BBQ sauce is wonderful. The meat is well cooked. Loved this place. Not that both Whatcom Dickeys locations are closed, Jakes reigns supreme. I wonder if... More

We were given a gift card so decided to try it once more the first couple times were underwhelming to say the least and this time was no different. The only great thing about the meal was the little corn bread appetizers they give you, you'll want extras if you want to leave full. The meal was average it wasn't... More

We often eat at Jake's so figured I should tell you about it. We've tried almost everything on the menu & it's all delicious! Besides eating in, they also have a Carryout Cowboy Meal (Pulled pork, buns, baked beans, coleslaw, & potato salad). Love this when my husband gets tired of pizza night. :) Servers have always been great &... More

Jake's is located on state highway 539, the main north/south road through Lynden. It's on the right side, just after you cross the city limits, way back to the right in a community mall with a Food Pavilion in the middle, just north of the RIte-Aid, across that street. Ironically, just a couple of doors down is Coconut Kenny's, which... More

We went to Jakes for dinner last week and was really happy at both the service and the food that we had - we had a two meat plate with beans and grilled veggies - ice team kept coming ( it was a 90+ degree day ) the pulled pork was flavorful and smokey as was the sausage - topped... More

I will be back to this place again to try the other dishes after today. Had some nice little cornbread sticks to start with (complimentary!),,and they were good. Then, tried the pulled pork nachos,,,so... More

Have eaten at Jakes too many times to count. Have tried everything from Baby Back Ribs to Burgers and have never had a bad meal! Food is always fresh and cooked exactly how I like it, (medium rare for the burger) and we really like the little cornbreads. Beer glasses took a little getting used to, they seemed smaller to...

The barbecue is a sweet sauce and very good. There is no other sauces such as a hot sauce but it isn't needed. The servings were huge and they know how to make ice tea! There are 2 sections to the restaurant, the bar side and the dining room side. We sat on the dining room side. We all had... More

The food was pretty good. I had the house salad and chicken strips. I would have liked the chicken to be crispier but the flavor was good. I loved the fried pickle spears. Others in our party had the ribs and flat iron steaks which they said we're really good. The vegetarian in the group said the southwestern salad needed... More

I had the pulled pork salad the first time I went there, and it was so good I haven't really tried anything else on the menu, even though I have eaten there many times. Unless you have a hearty appetite or want leftovers, I recommend the half order-their servings are generous.

Thank Jennifer I
