Family went to eat on a Saturday afternoon. Had not been in 15 years but had nothing but good memories. Too bad I didn't have a time machine.

We walked in with 3 kids (ages 14 to 8) and were ushered into a sequestered room. It was 40

I was advised that the deep fried cheeseburger would be the best meal that I have had in years...So I tried it and it was amazing. Bun or no bun it was delicious. The cheese was like lava flowing out of the breaded cheeseburger. I have been back since and ordered it again for a second time. I highly suggest this dinner!

Pros: Its a great start to a great evening

Cons: Can cheese be to hot?

Do NOT waste your time coming to this place--it is HORRIBLE. To start off with, our appetizer was NOT as we ordered it--and we were one of only two couples in the ENTIRE place--so it is not as if they were too busy to care! Secondly, while we were waiting for our steaks, a ROACH crawled across our table! We immediately told the waitress we were leaving, and she brought us our food and bill--with no discount, no apologies--NOTHING! Management couldn't have CARED LESS! When we got home our steaks were well done when we asked for medium rare, and our sides were beans--NOT the broccoli that we ordered. Save your money and go some place where the food is actually good, ordered to your specifications, and where the place is clean!

Pros: NOTHING--unless you like to eat cock roaches!

Cons: COCKROACHES--need I say more?

A group of 8 of us had dinner at Jake's. Shimp appetizer and ribs were very good and our server was pleasant. Other than that, it was a rather unpleasant dining experience. They had a good wine list, but could not locate any Cabernet Sauvingnon wines. After about a half hour, our server brought us an inexpensive bottle of Merlot. Some of the entrees were brought out and left unattended on a table near us (outdoors) for several minutes before the rest of the entrees were brought out and placed on our table. One of our party found a very long hair in her steak salad, and decided not to eat anything (our server did deduct the salad from our check). After all that, they included a 20% gratuity on the check.

Jake's is clearly a very poorly managed restaurant. One would best advised to stop to have nothing more than a beer in the rustic bar.

I made reservations for a Bachelorette party roughly three weeks in advance. When we arrived at the resturaunt, our table was not ready. We waited for 45 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. After we were seated, we sat for 30 minutes before a server entered our room to greet us. The bartenders rolled our eyes at us when we tried to order drinks and told us they had to take care of their staff before they could help us.

When we finally placed our order, a few of the meals were not brought out and a few of them were wrong. For one of the meals, we had to ask FOUR TIMES for it to be brought out. One of the grilled chicken salads we ordered had NO grilled chicken on it (and they never brought it to us after we told them). How long does it take to get ketchup at Jakes's? Forty-five minutes. When it came time for the checks, the server said she could 'try' to split them up, but made it sound like we were being unreasonable - so one of the girls in our party willingly paid on her credit card to avoid having to deal with the staff any more.

On top of all of this, we spoke to the owner about our terrible experience, and he took NO responsibility and said he was going to fire our server. How unprofessional! Having worked in the resturaunt business, this is the kind of experience you comp an entire meal for. He gave us a measly $50 off of our $150 bill.

Well, we sure hope his measly discount was worth it - he's got 12 angry girls that will talk about their bad experience at Jake's and NEVER recommend it to anyone again. Save yourself the time, and go somewhere that treats you like they want to earn your money.

Even though the restaurant was empty, we were given the worst table. All we could hear was the thumping from the music in the club next door. Our server brought us our appetizer before she even asked us what we wanted to drink. The steaks were terrible. I'm certain I could have gotten a better steak at Ponderosa. I couldn't believe they charged $28 for a steak I couldn't even cut through. There was too much gristle in the steak. I've spoken to other people about my experience and they agree that this is an awful restaurant. I would never go back and I would never recommend this place to anyone.

We went to Jake's Steaks on a Sunday evening. There was no wait to get in. The service was good and the food was decent. The jalapeno corn bread and the salads were excellent. However, the main meals were only average. I had a steak pasta with tomato basil sauce, which was kind of blah. My boyfriend had a steak with peppercorn sauce, which was good but he ordered jalapeno mashed potatoes with the meal, and I swear they were from a box rather than mashing real potatoes there. Not sure if I would recommend this place.

I have been hearing about Jakes for years from friends and family but I read some of the reviews over the years and I was sceptical. My husband and I recently went with a couple friends of ours to celebrate a retirement and I have to say our experience was wonderful. Our waiter was extremely friendly and prompt. Their was a small wait but the bar was roomy and the service was quick. When we got to the dining room I was amazed at the size and the atmosphere, it is very decieving from the outside. Our food was great. My husband said it was one of the best steaks he has had at a restaurant. Overall I was extremely happy with our experience. I would encourage everyone to give it a try I don't think you will be dissapointed.

Pros: Food, Service, Atmosphere

Cons: had to pay for parking

The atmosphere at Jakes is upbeat and fun! I enjoy going here before or after sporting events downtown. My favorite dish is the teriyaki chicken and steak and I just have to have the mashed potatoes! My father comes here often for lunch and gets the salmon and just loves it! I am not a big steak eater, but there are lots of other options on the menu. I alway send visitors to Saint Louis here for a good meal.

The steak at this "Steak House" tasted like fish or tacos depending on what your ordered. My husband had to run to the bar next door to get us drinks. After all the food was evaulated and everyone at the table was dissatisfied I went inside the restaurant to speak to the manager, because she refused to come outside to speak to me when requested. I explained everything to her and she agreed to take some $ off of our bill ($20 off $150). To top off the entire experience, the waitress screamed in my face as I was leaving causing a scene, and the manager yelled at another friend in my party assuring that they would have no other patrons for the rest of the evening.These people are LUNATICS and unless you would like to be treated terribly I would not even step inside.

After getting my order wrong twice they finally brought the ribs I ordered; stone cold and so tough I thought they cooked them in the microwave. My collogue and I ordered beers and only got a half a glassthe waiter told us that if it was a problem that he would bring us another. I complained and got another ? of a beer.

Several nights later the client Im here to see suggested we go there. We got there at 7:00pm and the place was dead. Nonetheless, it took an hour and a half to get our steaks. I ordered my steak medium and it was cooked hard as a brickDid I mention it was stone cold too? I complained and got another steakthe 2nd one was so tough and filled with gristle, I couldnt eat it. Might I add it was $41!!!

* Recommended by several people from work. *
45 minute wait before sitting but atmosphere and bar staff was friendly. Restaurant has a southwestern theme with lots to keep your eye busy. I enjoyed a 7oz black peppered NY Strip (a little overcooked but still tasty), jalapeno mashed potatoes, fried onions, jalapeno cornbread, a side salad, and a glass of wine. Overall, meal was excellent!

Our family had a bad meal and bad service at Jake's Steaks. Attempts to just let the management/owner know about the bad experience resulted in being told we must have been mistaken about the steak and the service being bad and hope you return. What a joke! The owner called me at work and I was in meetings so never called back. Wasn't looking for a free meal and wouldn't have taken one had it been offered but since not even an apology was given we won't over go back.

My brother and I stop and eat dinner at this place on 02-28-01. After a short wait (with no reservation ) we were seated .We both ordered steak and ribs. The food was hot,looked good, and tasted great. The service, location, and atmosphere was nice. I would recommend this place to my friends.

Now it may just have been what I ordered (Hickory Chicken Linguine) but it was intollerably salty and had way too much garlic. I will be vampire free for quite a while. The appetizer (tortilla chips with spinach dip) was great and the Mayfair salad was delicious, but it all led up to a great dissapointment with the entree. Maybe their steaks are better, but they're also about $20. All and all, not worth it in my opinion.
