Came in for dinner. Pretty quiet. Ordered a beer and burger. Both very good. The crispy chicken burger was cooked perfectly with just the right crunch and very moist. The accompanying salad was also great with lots of variety including beets. The blue cheese dressing had chunks of blue cheese and was very good also. Service was just right and... More

My wife and I were outside of Duncan during a Vancouver island snowstorm. we wanted to eat out, and found out that Just Jakes was open. We started as the only people in the restaurant. the popcorn shrimp appetizer was great, as were the two entrees. Service was exceptional. We will be back.

Popped in for lunch after some shopping and had pleasant service and some fish and chips. The two piece were on special, but was too big for my appetite so I took the second piece home and made tacos out of it the next day! Now thats a first.

What I liked best was no TV. Good separation of tables. Fireplace ambieance. Also their craft beer was excellent. I would go back again when in Duncan. The food was pub food good but not gourmet.

Jake's is a local favourite spot, due in part to the relaxed and casual atmosphere, the funky decor and of course, the delicious food. Nothing too fancy, think pub food very slightly upscaled. Burgers, pizza, chicken, natchos- pretty much what you'd expect but better. Plus it's a locally owned restaurant with its own brew pub (Craig Street Brew Pub) right... More

We had been warned it would be busy on a Friday evening. Parking took awhile as we had to go around and around the blocks. My husband uses a cane for balance so it was a slow walk from where we could park. Fine for me, but block and a half for him is difficult. There was a line up... More

Our favourite places to eat. The menu has something that will appeal to everyone. Reasonable prices and you are always guaranteed great food and great service. In the winter, if you arrive early enough you can cozy up to the fire, and remember to order a bowl of the best Butternut Squash and in the summer the patio is a... More
