“Friendly & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

In the area on July 4 for fireworks later on the mountain and surprisingly very few places in town were open. The outdoor dining here was the right choice for a beautiful evening. A bit slow because of crowded bar on a World Cup day, but outside service was great & attentive. Three of us with great selections for drinks & food - one burger, one chicken salad & one pulled pork. All tasty, creatively prepared, decent prices. Looking forward to a return visit after one of our ski trips.

“Friendly bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a beer one afternoon here and were made to feel at home. The patrons at the bar were welcoming and shared local information as did the bar personnel. We did not eat food here, but they do offer a menu.

“High Priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Akes was a cute little local place that looked like a good place to stop for lunch. There's a bar on one side and tables on the other. Service was good, but there was only one other party in the room and they were leaving. The menu selection was fine, but the prices were way out of line for what we got. My husband had a burger and fries which was no bigger or better than found in other places. I had the chicken pot pie that was served in a small, shallow dish. The chicken was done nicely, but the veggies were few and far between. It was a lot of gravy. Nothing was served with the pie. A small salad would have been nice. Anyway, for a burger and fries, and one small chicken pot pie and 2 glasses of tap water, our bill was $29 without the tip. We should have walked out when we saw the prices, but figured the quality/quantity would warrant the prices. We were wrong. If you want a small portion of very ordinary food, at high prices, by all means stop at Ake's. If none of this sounds good to you, keep on driving on down the road. I wish we had.

“Have the burger! Its great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Decided to stop here for dinner one night with the family. We were not disappointed. The chicken pot pie was scrumptious, the rib eye tender, the clam strips eh, but my burger - wow! One of the best burgers i've ever eaten. Cooked perfectly, juicy and tender, and the fries are crazy good. I wish i had cheese curds and gravy cause those fries would make a mean poutine. The service was great and atmosphere warm and cozy. Try it, you'll like it.
