We went to this on a recommendation after taking a trip to nearby Bannerman Castle. Jake's is on a lovely stretch of development right on the Hudson, the width of which is so huge at this point of the river. The lobster bisque is the...More

Never been here and reviews were pretty good. River front is great. 30 minute wait for table on the patio. Staff very sweet but seemed like no manager working. Drinks were excellent. Blackened grouper for 26.95 was way over priced for what you got. Fish...More

I ordered a bowl of clam chowder and the twin lobster rolls. The food was excellent and the lobster rolls were over flowing with lobster. Great food and nice atmosphere right on the dock. Eat in or outside dining when weather permits. Great service too!

Stopped in for a quick romantic lunch date on the deck and this place did not disappoint. The food was great but really the highlight was the white sangria, it was the best we've ever had.

My husband loves seafood, but I don't. However, we both found comfort food in this menu. Hubby says Lobster Bisque was outstanding! He followed it with a Jambalaya that would rival Louisiana. I had Chicken Picata over linguine which was not only good, but very...More
