Hosted a very good customer in the area at Jakes. Superior service and food quality. Would recommend Jakes if you are in the area and want great food, wine, service and view of the ocean.

This is one of the best places for food and atmosphere. We never miss going to Jakes when we are on vacation. Although we only go once a year the bartenders and servers remember us, which is very welcoming.

Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.
