It was nice to read the reviews even though they were troubling, but since I was just at Papa Jake's last night with a table of 10 I thought I better write something about our experience.

Papa Jakes needs to concentrate on gaining the integrity the business lacks. We had a "Seize the Deal" coupon for which we paid $20. Although the coupon said right on it that it expired on Oct 26, Papa Jakes said that they changed the

Great seafood, friendly bartenders and great selection of beer on tap.
Could be kept a little cleaner.

I was personaly sitting next to the lunatic lady from the previous review and I can say that she is lying flat out. She border line assulted the hostess who was extremely nice to us it is pathetic when low lives try to get a free meal. In addition I go to papa Jakes 3 times a week and have never had a bad experience..so to the lady of the previous reveiw get a life and some friends and maybe you will not be so mad all the time

Was a regular.... with 4-5 others every other Friday generally. The service and food quality started to get poor so we stopped going. Haven't been there in a few years, but heard Jakes has a new owner. So we thought we would give it another shot! Wow! Things got worse!
I mean Wow!
Read on!
This is a restaurant....... food service ...... there are some basics. Like.... Good management, food to serve, enough help, enough knives and forks, enough glasses and the help/management should not be nibbling and eating off of the food plated and waiting to be served. Especially when the customers can sit at the table at the entrance of the kitchen (no door) and watch this going on. It would also be nice if the help had enough manners to not pick at the customers food waiting to be served with knives that were just in their mouth!
Two people at our table witnessed that happen this evening. 8-27-10. We confronted the help/manager who we just watched do that and he flatly denied it. 2 people at our table in perfect view within 10'! It must happen so often he does not even realize he is doing this OR that it is wrong! Neither is acceptable.
We were asked to leave. Thank you actually! So Let's review........
No food! ......poor service!........no help!.........no glasses or flatware!...... and a manager/(owner?) who would rather pick at the customers food with dirty utensils than pitch in and help wash to get what limited equipment out to the customers!
Get me out of there!

Leaving was the best thing that could have happened.
Like the other reviewer said. "This is Buffalo there are LOTS of great restaurants for Friday Fishfrys"
We are good for at least $3000. per year (Min $60x50) just for Friday Fishfrys. Not another nickel here!
Count on it!
You may think you had a great meal there...but were you actually watching? We were and it was disgusting! What are we not seeing in there?
Want to guess what happened to the food we ordered and never got??
Yeah......

What happened to Papa Jake's?

It used to have the nicest bartender and wait people! The food was always decent pub food and we especially enjoyed the meatloaf sandwich and breaded fish fry.

Our last couple visits have left us missing the good old Papa Jake's. An extremely rude and bratty hostess and and unfriendly bartender are enough to keep me away but the mediocre food sealed the deal. Too bad because this was a favorite meeting place for our family.

Lucky for us this is Buffalo and it's not hard to find friendly bartenders, hostesses that know what being a hostess means and wait people that provide excellent service! Oh and above average pub food!

My advice: don't bother coming here anymore. Suggestions for a replacement meeting place? Send 'em and thanks!

Pros: updated washroom

Cons: poor customer service, mediocre food

I was just there for the first time last night. Great atmosphere - not too noisy but lively. Reminded me of Cheers, only smaller. Lousy parking. They made a mean gin and tonic for me and the waitress was great at accomodating our large party. I didn't eat any food but the hand-cut french fries, spinach dip and homemade clam chowder ordered by my companions were only to be resisted by my sense of decorum. They have a nice selection of beers as well.

We eat here a few times a year and love the clams. The food is always good - great burgers, and the prices are great for a family. Very friendly staff.
