We haven't been to Jake's in quite a while but still as good as ever. Our server was exceptional as we found she's been there for 30 years. When she said she'd be right back with butter....she was! How often does that happen ? Anyway,...More

We are not familiar with the Waukesha/Pewaukee area and when I was looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary it was between Jake's Restaurant and a couple of other options in downtown Waukesha. I am so glad I went to Jake's! The atmosphere is...More

We've dined here a few times but agree that the service is better in the bar area. Jake's has an old school steakhouse feel, complete with a fireplace. Ambiance is dimly lit with comfortable seating and elegant tableware. It's great for couples, friends, or groups....More

If we are in town we go to Jakes for a steak and onion rings. That says it all. Perhaps the best Monday deal in Wisconsin. A good tenderloin with a heap of onion straws. Get a side of mushrooms in a cast iron pan...More
