My wife and I recently spent our 30th anniversary at Jakes, and we will definitely be back. My first mistake was thinking you didn't need a reservation for 5 o'clock on a Tuesday, Wrong! However, it was still plenty early enough where we could get a table in the bar, which is next to the dining room anyway. Beautiful ocean... More

My husband and I went to Jake's to celebrate our anniversary. I specifically wanted to go to Jake's because of the restaurant's vicinity to the ocean....beach front. The view and the food were both amazing. The service was perfect. We were late for our reservation, but the hostess arranged for us to have a table anyway. The restaurant was busy,... More

Looking for the perfect ocean view lunch? And a fantastic hard-to-decide-what-to-get menu? (Because there are so many great choices….) What a gem of a restaurant. This is a must every time I'm anywhere near San Diego.

We went to this restaurant for the view and were not disappointed. The window tables were prime and we enjoyed the surf side dining experience. The service was efficient and relaxed. My friend enjoyed a Mai tai similar to those at Duke's in Hawaii. My friend has gluten and dairy allergies and they were able to accommodate. Most of the... More

Jake's is a landmark in Del Mar, and is frequented by celebs, tourists and locals alike. The food is excellent, and the service is usually good. The Hula Pie is delicious and will feed the table!

We stopped in before dinner time at 5pm and ordered from the bar menu during happy hour. The calamari was excellent and the seafood chowder was OK but not great. Service was good.

I manage 2 hotels in Del Mar, and have sent dozens of guests there- they always come back raving. My wife and I have dined there close to a dozen times- always outstanding.

We ordered the Mac & Cheese Meatball-great! the Basil Grilled Shrimp-good, and a wonderful Lobster tail-great! We walked right in & found a table in the bar area on side porch. We watched to ocean waves during our meal. Be sure to make reservations if you want to sit in main dining area.

We have been to Jake's three times on our stay in Del Mar. Location is perfect, right on the beach near the main waterfront park in Del Mar. We have eaten twice at the bar. Bartenders are very friendly and helpful. Great sandwiches, salads and entrees. We have sampled all three categories and liked our food choices. Very nice wine... More

Description
Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.
