We had a family dinner here over Christmas holiday. The staff, the food and the atmosphere were all fantastic. The staff was very attentive and the food was served on time and exactly as ordered. Jake's Famous Crawfish gets a top rating in my book.

The food is good. We especially like happy hour, they have a nice menu of all sorts of goodies. It is a rather expensive place. One can dress up or go casual. I like the locks as an appetizer.

Went here for dinner on my sons recommendation and we were not disappointed. The stuffed salmon was delicious and my husband enjoyed the trout. We will be coming back the next time we are in PDX.

I can't express to you how wonderful our experience was at Jake's. We found the bar and ordered Clam Chowder and drinks for lunch. The bartender gave us a wonderful mountain of great bread. The chowder was full and tasty not watered down and leaving...More

Yes, a very reasonably priced kids' menu. I think our 5 year old granddaughter's fish and chips were priced at $7. Just as nicely done as other "big people's" fish and chips.
