If you crave a pie with super crunchy thin crust which comes with bubbly sheet cheese, rather than that shredded stuff with no flavor, then this is the place you want. The Oven Combo is perhaps one of the best pizzas ever--it even competes with...More

Went twice with my honey, and once with family from out-of-town. The first visit with my lady was great. We ate upstairs (two flight walk) and enjoyed our dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives and steak for me (wasn't on the menu) and fish...More

We've not been in Jake's for a year or more and sadly, it has declined and was very disappointing. Unfortunately the owner was lurking around so it's not due to lack of supervision. Lack of professionalism and attitude were present but the food was the...More

While visiting the area from Georgia, we made our way to Jake's for drinks after a disappointing dinner at Currents. We loved the "old downtown" atmosphere and the building decor. The bartender was working the entire room and bar and did a great job. He...More
