“Pay for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

The food is generally excellent, with always fresh oil for the fried foods, which is evident in the flavor. You will pay downtown prices however for modestly sized portions. It is generally fried food after all is said and done, though broiled baked items can be found in the menu.
Seafood is expensive about anywhere tho, since we fished out George's Bank. The last time I went there for my annual contribution to a local rest., I was not very satisfied with the quality of my meal. The place is directly waterfront, though at low tide, not that appealing a view. Not their fault...

“overpriced, I think.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

$28 for 2 small, well vodka cran, and 2 DRAFT beers. Not Kettle One, Not Grey Goose. Just Smirnoff or whatever. Just know going in, it's pricey. Service was good, meals were typical, but not "to die for". I won't wait for a table again, that's for sure. But I still can give it a 4.

“VERY OVERPRICED MODERATE PORTIONS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Been going to Jake's for years at least three times per year. Went for the first time this year and was put off by the high prices and slimmed down portions. A bowl if chowder came in a cup sized saucer. You could count the pieces of seafood on two hands in our $27.00 seafood platter smothered in french fries. The waitress was embarrassed. Very good service and a lively clean atmosphere. Not again!

“Terrific seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

A bit pricey, but great fresh seafood and spectacular sunset views. Can be quite busy on summer weekends, so go mid-week for a first visit.

“The most popular in Hull”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

It's a bit over-priced and the selections are not very exciting in general, but it's the best seafood in Hull and a very pleasant atmosphere. The Portugese calamari as an appetizer is very good!
