Recently had the opportunity to eat at Riley & Jakes, and what a pleasant surprise indeed. Opted for a couple of the 'daily specials' and the variety was great, the taste satisfying, and the portions ample. And a great price too! Will definitely be back!!

The menu is full and extensive. Moderate price and service is outstanding. Summer months dining outside affords an enjoyable experience and pleasant atmosphere. Great Manhattans' UP, and the Montreal Steak is delicious, and once in a while they have a great special of scallops. Love...More
