Since we didn't have a reservation, we opted to eat in the bar. We arrived during Happy Hour and were able to take advantage of both the food and drink specials. This restaurant is located right on the beach and the views are outstanding. Valet...More

I wanted to get to Jake's a bit early, knowing that on a summer Sunday, parking would be limited. I found one spot left at the public parking place across the road from Jake's. I took it and paid the $18 parking fee. Outrageous! I...More

I have always expected a lot out of Jakes having been a former employee. That's why I chose to have a birthday lunch at Jakes with a good friend. We were seated at a horrible table after requesting to be on the deck. We were...More

Jake's does not let you down. Crowded for a good reason, so consider reservations a few days in advance - or take a seat in the bar area and have a great meal. The drinks have always been good - so has the food. Nighttime...More

We were lucky to snag a table just at the window with a view of the water, just as people were leaving. The veggie burgers were the best ever (said my husband and daughter). Margarita excellent. Fun vibe. They have valet parking, which was less...More

Jakes is a great restaurant right on the beach. The food is pretty good, but its the setting that makes Jake's such a great place to go. We've been there a few times before and this time we got a nice table looking right out...More

The ribs are gluten free, the burger has a gluten free bun option and almost all of the seafood dishes are either gluten free on the menu or can easily be made gluten free.

Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.
