RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2016

Sure, Tony serves typical "Sports Bar" fare, but check out the whole menu & especially, the daily specials; Fabulous homemade dishes that are high-end restaurant quality. Great beer & beverage selection, large portions, friendly staff, local private ownership! Give Bake's a try.

I like to use trip advisor as a guide when I go to new places. This place was rated very highly and after eating here I just dont get it. We went in on a Sunday night and the place was empty. The waitress greeted us right away and took our order. The food took quite a long time to... More

So, let me start with the good. Tony is a nice guy (very personable) and as an owner he is always there. I have tried various things on the menu and food usually has nice portions and is very good. The challenge is as follows: They are an excellent candidate for bar or restaurant impossible. The less is more theme... More

There are very few restaurants nowadays that actually serve fresh burgers that are not pre-pressed. I had the 3/4 pound burger with feta cheese and tzatziki sauce - it was phenomenal!! The fries were great as well! My son had a 3/4 pound burger with bacon and cheese, and my other son had a huge stacked deli sandwich. All of... More

First time based on recommendation of friend. Hamburger ordered medium prepared exactly as ordered. They have a large menu including many specials well beyond burgers. Comfy, oldtime atmosphere. I'll go back again to try their other items. Could be a good go to place with guy friends.

Bakes has a French Onion Soup that is as good (or better) that at any other place I've been. Service is always friendly & fast. Eat in or take out, either way you win. Great food at resonable prices. Stop in and see Tony - you won't be disappointed.
