We have gone to Jake O’Connors numerous times. Service has never been great but this probably ranks as worst service ever. We had a 6pm reservation. We were seated immediately. The hostess told us our waitress would be with us shortly. After about 10 minutes,...More

Nice place to pop in for good beer and a burger ! Excelsior has a small town feel yet lots to see and do . The pub has a great atmosphere and good food. You won't be sorry!

Friday night and the service was very slow and the food was not very good. Jake’s is a place you want to drink at and then go to one of the other restaurants and eat. It’s to bad.

I've been here a dozen or so times over the last year. Always great service at the bar. The food is pretty darn good, and the atmosphere (especially in summer on the sidewalk) is hard to beat. Always a winner.

Great salads, burgers and fries. Love this place. Have eaten there many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Especially nice when you can sit outside.
