This is our friend's favorite place to eat and go for happy hour. We had lunch there and it was extremely good. Three of us shared one of their monstrous sized ice cream pie desserts. It was enough for six.

Overall solid, pricey. Valet Parking only. Upscale beach vibe. Shorts in day and dressier at night. Scallops great. Shrimp not. Crowded so must like people to eat there.

Business casual. Dress Jeans/Pants/nice top is fine. Nothing too fancy... The views of the ocean are superb so people often go walking on the beach before or after dining - so its dressier casual, but in no means formal.

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.
