First time at Jakes to have dinner and listen to nostalgic 70s music from the Rockafellas.

As this was a Thursday Summer evening and just before a civic holiday, I was not surprised that it was a small but energetic group of diners, dancers and audience.

I asked the server what was good on the dinner menu and what she really liked. So, I had the fish (Tilapia) tacos and bowl of chicken noodle soup. The soup was a bit peppery but she told me that it would be. No problem. It was very good. The tacos were very good. The Tilapia was grilled.

The live entertainment was excellent. There were 3 sets. Dinner, live music, excellent value for an evening.

It is such a pleasure to find a nice independent spot with great food as well as the atmosphere you may expect from a large chain with the corporate $$$. Great music playing, TV's everywhere, friendly staff and great food. I had the fish tacos. The fish is not frozen breaded fish sticks like most places ! Grilled to perfection with fresh flavorful condiments. They serve Coke as well which is always a bonus. It had the aroma of a Florida beach side restaurant, it did !

This is an old faithful. Slightly outdated decor with an at area and casual dining. A fireplace adds a little atmosphere. The food is good the service, ok.
The fish tacos were very nice.
They don’t allow any substitutions even if you pay which is ridiculous. For example no salad upgrade etc which is very odd to me.
Anyhow. Good salmon as well.
Choose fish. It is a fish restaurant. But offers other dishes as well such as burgers. Stir fry bang bang cauliflower etc.

I frequent this restaurant regularly. Everything on the menu is good. Great atmosphere and service.
Big screen TV for sports. Outside patio when weather permits.

I stopped in there tonight and we had a great meal. It was nice to see a brunello on the wine list even if it’s a 2011. We had Calamari and it was perfect! It was crispy, gold and portion was great. I had the salmon and it was good, the sides were pretty good. I had the sticky toffee pudding which was also great. The place was busy but we had great service and it has a nice relaxed atmosphere.
