You are right on the beach. Beautiful view. Go there for a sunset view. Food is just ok. I was disappointed when the server served clam chowder soup to a vegetarian guest after she emphasized it many times. He should know the definition of vegetarian...More

Jakes is a great location on the beach, the service was first class, the food was great, and their signature dessert was everything we hoped it would be. Not inexpensive, but worth it for a great dinner followed by a walk on the beach.

The ribs are gluten free, the burger has a gluten free bun option and almost all of the seafood dishes are either gluten free on the menu or can easily be made gluten free.

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.
