We stopped for dinner at Jake's on a Saturday night about 7:00 PM. Jake's doesn't take reservations except for larger parties, so waited our turn to get a table. It was busy. From the road, Jake's looks look a sports bar. That's logical, because it is, at least on the left hand side. Big bar, lots of tv screens. The... More

After many trips to Jakes for many occasions my last visit was the best ever! Not really sure what to order since I usually don't even look at the menu since I know it by heart, I decided to share a dish with my date. The cioppino was quite possibly the most delicious dish I ever ate! Every fish was... More

Jake's salmon dinner with sweet potato fries is amazing, as is the scallops over risotto. Their burgers are excellent and they have a nice choice of salads. One of my favorite restaurants in town.

We stopped by Jake's after running errands in Flemington. It was our first visit in a long time and we won't let so much time pass again. We started with the chili and French Onion soup. Both were delicious, especially the chili. We shared a pulled pork sandwich that was the perfect end to our quick stop. Service was pleasant... More

They are always nice and friendly at Jakes! The martinis are ample and the food has always been good. Daily specials are a must try as well.

Jakes is an independent bar and restaurant serving up fine food in the Dining Room and casual bar food in its bar area. The salmon dinner I had was very good, grilled with lemon and herbs. It came with potatoes and a side of spinach. The T - bone steak was thick and delicious, grilled to my specs, as requested... More

First time - Popped in on a whim and it was very busy. 20 minute wait for a table, but worth the wait. Service was clearly a well oiled machine. Tried the pork belly sliders which were great.

Been there a couple of times. A good buck-a-shuck special if you like oysters. A very good scotch selection. Eat in bar or dinning room.
