This was our third visit to Jake's. Each time the food has been outstanding, consistent and the staff excellent. We love the cheese platter and have experienced it a couple of times now. The drinks are superbly created as well. The variety of food is great. Desserts also well prepared, beautiful and delicious. I like a place where you walk... More

Although we live not far from Jake's it's been years since my wife and I have dined there. At the suggestion of some friends we joined them for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The interior was as we remembered it, perhaps slightly spruced up. Cozy, with a bit of a supper club feel. The service was outstanding. The food was... More

ENjoyed dinner there recently, the steak was fork tender and tasty. AT Jakes the mountain of onion sticks is a must. Dinner is pricey, around $45+ for entree two sides, bread and a drink. S

Our group booked a Monday night for the specials. We were twice promised the group room, only to find it was taken and we were put out in the noisy communal room. We endured a 3 hour meal, with no coffee or desserts. When it seemed that the main course had to be on the way, our waitress disappeared for... More

We have wanted to try Jakes for many years. Decided to for my birthday with my wife to have a great steak. Ironically, the mushroom soup I had, the french onion soup my wife had (may have been the best ever), and the Halibut my wife had were excellent. The NY Strip stake was average (I consistently get MUCH better... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It's consistently great! Food & service is always wonderful, without being "snotty". Jakes is one of the last privately owned nice restaurants in Brookfield. It's the best place to go for a peaceful dinner. A bit pricey for some, but well worth it, for service, food & atmosphere! ☆

Our first time at Jake's and we were very happy with our burger selections and the fries. We had the Carolina Burger that was served with a Carolina style bbq sauce and a Truffle Burger which was a bit messy to eat but very good. The fries are simple and 'I believe' fresh cut. Jake's burgers are better than most... More

The food is good - the service is good - just don't bother to write to them on their website as you will never get an answer - not exactly good customer service....

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years! I tend to eat steak when I visit, but have also enjoyed a variety of specials including fish and seafood dishes! I have also enjoyed several desserts, especially the creme brulee'. Try it, I think you will like it! I have never been disappointed! Please let me know if this review... More
