Great service and personality from the bartender Andrei. Great place to grab a beer and a bite. The view from the patio during summer is also quite amazing. I wish I took more photos.
We went to Jakes for a great lunch/dinner. The service was lovely and the meals tasted very good. The Ceasar Salad was one of my favorites- it's so good. We really enjoyed the food and time :)
Nice place, cozy, great service and food. A bit higher price than expected but overall great place to stop by for a dinner! Thank you.
Love this place! ? Friendly and attentive staff, and the food is absolutely delicious! I've been here many times and never been disappointed yet. I highly recommend their penne alfredo with cajun chicken. The scenery here is gorgeous too, and they even have a little dock behind the restaurant so you can enjoy a scenic view of the lake and surrounding mountains.
General pub fare, well prepared and fresh. This is a busy spot but service was still good. The atmosphere is relaxed and the large patio helps expand seating. Dine in was a little slow but only because every table was full. There was a steady stream of take out customers and lots of smiling faces.
Came here for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint, was pretty darn good ? we had the humbolt squid and it melted in my mouth and I seriously wanted to lick the plate after for the sauce that was drizzled over it, not sure what kind of sauce but it was delish! For entrees we had the penne Alfredo and the jacks sauté and both were AMAZING! I was kinda disappointed my fiancé didn?t pick something more ?creative? off their menu and went with the penne Alfredo as I see that as ?boring ? but boring it was not , I have never had such delish penne before that was cooked to perfection , often times the noodles are too hard or too mushy and this was spot on! The noodles were tender melt in your mouth and not chewy at all, sooooooo good ? and the jacks sauté there really is no words except go and order it , it was different and kind of an odd mix but it works and it?s creative and unique, hands down the best meal we have had so far on our vacay ? thanks for the excellent birthday meal tonight it was delish
Very impressed! Our first time dining here and it was a great Mother's Day dinner. Compliments to the chef (and that is a hard one to get from me). We had the penne alfredo, Jake's sautee, wontons, and crispy shrimp and it was one of the best meals we have had on this coast. A wholesome meal with a pub twist. The Alfredo was one of the best I have ever had! Service was very attentive, quick and the view/atmosphere was enjoyable. Will be back for sure.
Bellini?s we?re fantastic! Bar staff was great and friendly. Good selection of beers. Had a swim down at their dock. Recommend it, as the water was so warm! Calamari wasn?t bad. Chicken bites were pretty good! Chicken was juicy and not dry. The food was alright, typical ?pub? type of food. The fried chicken sand which isn?t what you think. It was encrusted with greasy taco chips, made two of us feel not so great after.
