Late day at work, needed a decent meal, we stopped here and was very pleased with the homey decor, service and of course the food. Went back again for night #2. Fish and chips are good and chase it with a pint. Second night had some chicken thai bowl, would pass on that, not a wow. Band played and they were really good.

Visited one evening after work while staying at the nearby Courtyard. The place definitely isn't anything fancy but it's charming and welcoming. Service was friendly and the portions were huge. The Bacon Mac and Cheese in particular was delicious. God place for casual dining if you're looking for comfort food.

Went in on a Tuesday afternoon for a quick meeting with two others.
The owner stopped by for a chat while I was waiting for the other two. We had a booth in a quiet corner. Our quick meeting turned into 1 hour 40 minutes but even though we only ordered one drink each we were not hassled. They did know I was staying for dinner after. And they have Stella on tap which I always enjoy. Service was very quick and very pleasant. We were served by Stephen.

I had looked at the menu so when the meeting was over I ordered the ½ rack of ribs with fries with a glass of cabernet. They have a reputation for ribs from the Rotary Rib Fest and these were what I expected. And the fries were served hot which is unfortunately rare in many restaurants. I had another meeting so was pleased they were in front of me in about 15 minutes.

Jakes is definitely a Brampton Institution. My brother-in-law was almost a fixture there when he was alive and I met my wife in the previous location 34 years ago. I have not been disappointed, either in the restaurant or my wife.
