People come to Jake's for the view. Who can cast blame when the restaurant looks onto the Pacific sunset? But stay for the food, the service and, especially, the Hula Pie, a giant, hot fudge drenched slice of ice cream heaven. Definitely share it. We...More

As always, great service and food. One of my favorite restaurants in all of San Diego county! We have been there so many times. Casual with great views and beautiful sunsets over the ocean. Tried the filet this time and it was perfect.

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.
