“Comfortable home town spot”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I visit Jakes frequently with family. Fun, somewhat noisy bar scene and comfortable separate dining area. Food is predictably good, staff friendly and accommodating.

“Very good all around!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Food and service were 4 stars out of 5, the best part was seating outdoors! This was the second time I was there and definitely can't complain (and I can always find something to criticize.)

“Lousy Service”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

We drive by all the time and decided we would stop in for a drink and appetizers. We sat at the bar and waited for quite sometime...when the bar tender finally came, his shirt smelled of cigarettes, so we kind of knew why we were waiting. Nachos were covered in something, not sure what and wings were undercooked. On the bright side, my margarita was good and my husbands beer was cold...I would not go back.

“High priced by convenient”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel and open late, which was a big plus. Service was OK, Food was OK, portions nice sized. Prices were a bit high for just OK. I'd repeat a trip given how convenient it was, but I think I would stick with a sandwich the nest time.
