Price is above average for average food. The atmosphere is fine with views of a cove on the lake. Campers are abundant around the Jake's Place. They do have drink specials on certain days. Hamburgers are pricey for a very average burger. Try something else.

Any place is great on SML.. Jakes offers a good place to drive the boat to and have a meal and a drink. They play live music some nights of the week. We always hit Jakes when we are in town!
