At Jakes' seafood You get the best seafood in Town. Try a wild Salomon Or steelhead. Maybe You Should Start with a Clam chowder. Taste a Nice Glass of local white wine. Enjoy the Nice Place. It is worth. A reservation is recommanded.

Excellent seafood establishment. Group of friends were able to select food that all enjoyed, including vegetarians. I had the halibut cheeks in a garlic and wine sauce that were outstanding. My only caution is the cost. Service was amazing.

Picked this place due to user reviews on a business trip. Too tired for a full meal so I opted to sit at the classic vintage bar in the front room. Don't miss the happy hour, they offer smaller samples of entrees with very reasonable...More

It's a huge restaurant and it was crowded on a Saturday evening, so we were lucky to have a reservation. The food was good, but we had three different entrees and they all came with asparagus and carrots - that doesn't really show much imagination.

Crawfish, fish, seafood galore. Jake's is a fun place that sports the oldest back bar in the west and it is gorgeous. Sometimes hard to get into because of the popularity. Make reservations. Go here, it's worth the wait.

Hi Kim I parked nearby but didn't validate parking so I'm not sure but I would definitely book as it is often packed so you can ask them about parking when you book Sandy

Yes, a McCormick and Schmicks gift card would work there. If you happen to have a Jake's gift card, that too would work obviously.

There was plenty of street parking. Taking a taxi is another option. We actually walked from our hotel. Walking was the better option since their portions were wonderful.
