My wife and I have been coming here (and/ or to the sister eatery, the Craig Street pub) for the 15 years we have lived on the Island. The service has always been excellent and we have never had a bad meal. Whatever they have...on the menu they know how to do well(which many restaurants cannot say). Try either location and you won't be disappointedMore
Five of us ate at Just Jake's today, October 23, 2020 based on favourable reviews. Those online reviews misled us into believing we were to have an excellent meal. While the service of the food was satisfactory, staff did not seat us in the location...we were assured would be set aside (we arrived on time). The food was overly salty, greasy and mostly without much flavour. We can not, in the circumstances, recommend Just Jake's and will not return.More
Great atmosphere, fabulous good and wonderful staff- we will be back! Stopped on our way down Island for a beverage and light lunch and was not disappointed. The Prawn Scampi was wonderful as well as the BLT, the IPA was great to. Thanks to Lauren...for the great service! Even with COCID going on we felt very comfortable and safe.More
Revisited after a year, hopeful for improvements, but no change. Our fave lunch place for a few years, but prices increased while quality and portion size decreased, especially side salads, sized to feed a mouse! The quality of food does not match the prices charged....We were both very disappointed. The coffee was plentiful and hot, but watery and lacking in flavour. The only positive was service, no complaints there. We won't be back.More
Husband had soup with his meal he swore came out of a Campbell's soup can. Blech! I had a $14 calamari appy that should have been double the amount for that price. Place used to be good (we went once a week) but the food...quality has steadily declined this past year. We won't be back after this last visit & will take our hard earned money elsewhere.More
The food quality is not what it used to be. Had a bad meal a month ago but chalked it up as a one off. We went back after this and both had terrible meals. Tough meat, overly spiced fish, cold food and a slow...waitress.More
It is the same company but the restaurant is located downtown Duncan. I have never used Jakes on the road . I prefer to eat in a restaurant . There is also a Jakes Restaurant in Lake Cowichan . I can recommend it as well.
I agree that you should contact the restaurant directly. However, my husband and I enjoyed lunch there with a girlfriend (celiac) and her husband. She suggested we eat there so I'm sure she had checked it out and I know they... More
