We made a quick stop for appetizers at Jakes when in Portland. We had a great drink and I was able find something healthy and good to eat which can be difficult sometimes. Nice atmosphere with good service.

Great fun Old School bar and restaurant with the class and service I miss in our new disposal society. Linen service, fresh fruit for cocktails and waitstaff in appropriate attire.
