I went here 2 times last week on vacation. It's a typical up north bar. Service was good. Had the same bartender both nights. He was very accommodating. We had pizza one night. It was pretty good for up north. One of the better ones I've had up there. Next time I had the buffalo chicken sandwich. It also was... More

I was told I "handled the situation completely wrong." After you read this and think I am in the wrong...please message me and let me know. This past weekend we decided... More

We stopped in to Jakes for a burger. It was awesome and the staff was super friendly and great to talk with. We ate lunch, but the serving as outstanding and didn't need dinner that day, so plan ahead.

We wanted to come here for breakfast but after being seated (following being completely ignored by a grumpy male bar tender) and reading their disclaimer that tells all about how their bar tenders double as wait staff and they have a small kitchen so therefore don't expect good service or a meal in a hurry, we had to re-think our...

Apparently, when you are an outsider, you are ignored. We were so excited to visit this place because of the reviews, but the service was terrible. 4 people behind the bar and a total of 8 people at the bar. The young girls looked at us multiple times with empty glasses and the owner , I believe he was ,... More

Its Sunday Funday and lunch is in order~ a ten minute or so drive for us from home. We always like going here for lunch. This time of year a little slow around town. We are happy Jake's is always open! My Bob had the steak sandwich which was cooked perfectly for his taste. I had Jakes grilled cheese. Cheddar... More

Looking for the real thing? You found it. If you are looking for a hip and trendy sports bar, this is not it. Everyone is treated like a local whether you are or not. The food is far above average and sure to satisfy. Good size helpings and fair prices. Cold beer. Good service. Had the turkey sandwhich and it... More

Jake's is a typical Wisconsin bar and grill, with good, friendly service, hospitality, and good food. The bar tenders double as servers so sometimes you have to go to the bar to get their attention, but this is a minor inconvenience. It is standard bar faire with hamburgers, wings, and a nod to Chicago patrons with Chicago hot dogs and... More

We witnessed a guy being extremely rude to the bartender. Once he left we told the bartender sorry she shouldn't have to deal with customers like that she stated she had to put up with him he was the owner. Sorry no one wants to come out for lunch and hear you ranting and raving. We feel sorry for the... More

I know there aren't any other places besides bars with frozen pizza but owners are from Chicago and do a great homemade pizza. BBQ chicken is our favorite.
