I wish I knew how long this place has been there, but it feels like it has been there for a very long time. They know how to do it right here. When you walk in the atmosphere is just amazing. Tall, tall ceilings, animal heads, dark wood, dim lights, wait staff in white jackets, black ties. It brings you... More

I'm from Cali and ran into this place with my friend. I had a cashew trout for lunch and it was amazing! I highly recommend!

We had lunch at one of the outdoor tables. The lunch selection was great with salads and sandwiches, as well as full-plates. My Crab Louis was excellent. We previously had dinner indoors, where the atmosphere is "old Portland," with great seafood selections.

You feel so classy just being in this place. It's dimly lit, everything is made with a dark wood, it looks like something from the Edwardian era. You can hear sinatra playing in the background, and the service is great. Not only that, the food is fantastic and incredibly affordable.

We weren't expecting much but when we got our meals they were awesome. Started with the beet app.......that was the best beet appetizer that I have ever had. Fresh, creative and so different from the rest I would go back just for that. Oysters were fresh and the fish and chips were outstanding. The service was very informative and prompt... More

The food was wonderful and the service was too. If you also like to people watch in a fun, casual but nice white table cloth restaurant then go to Jake's. Excellent food selection and beer and wine. You will not be disappointed.

This place was recommended to me for its old school vibe. I don't think it disappointed. Old school cocktails, solid steak, rich desserts, experienced waiters, what you'd expect at a place like this in general. I won't call this a super high end experience but it was not pretentious either and thus very enjoyable.

This is part of the McCormick-Schmick chain so you're really not getting a unique Portland experience. MS is an average operator, they only lasted a year in Santa (our home) before going out of business. Nothing bad about the food, just average. We had a 8oz filet which seemed undersized but good, only 1 choice of fresh oysters, trout was... More

Lots of prom parties this evening. Our server did well, despite the hoopla. Food was very good as always. We always enjoy Jakes for the old Portland atmosphere and outstanding seafood. Service is normally excellent. We will be back here in a week, as a matter of fact.

Happies menu is extensive, cheap, and food really well prepared. Bar tenders are on top of customers needs and polite. Great place to meet friends after work, grab a craft beer, and sample the happy hour menu. Dinner menu gets a bit more pricey, but food quality and preparation is very good.
