The food is good but a bit pricey. Service is good as well. We've always had attentive wait staff. We come here often and had a birthday party catered by them.

This is what most people I know say about Jake's. The food is really good but you better be ready to wait a long time for it! Fun atmosphere though, and friendly staff. I'll probably go back again, seeing as I live in Lynden.

Really liked the cool ranch chips and the sausage was great. Mac and cheese was a little bland and they confirmed what I thought, big hit with younger children but not most adults. Worth the visitMore

Thanks for the feedback Rick! Our Ranch Hand Chips are slightly addictive, glad you liked them! The mac and cheese IS a big hit with the kiddos around here. We hope next time you come you might try a side with a bit more kick,...More

Family friendly and nice decor make this a sweet spot to eat out. The cornbread is out of this world, but they are stingy with it, bringing you only one slice per person. The BBQ sauce is wonderful. The meat is well cooked. Loved this...More
