Heading out from quarterdeck resort on the shores of Gull Lake we drive about a mile south and found Jakes. Not on lake, but sits high up with slight view. Love the interior with warm woods, tv's and such a inviting sports pub atmosphere. Quality breakfast menu that is not extensive, but something for everyone and easy 5/5 for quality!... More

My wife and at I stopped for supper. The service was decent and atmosphere was good. The food was not very good for us. Fries were above average. We will try many other places before coming back.

My wife and I have gotten tired of spending $50 on dinner and are currently trying to find a place that is worth our time and money. We visited Jakes on a Saturday about 430pm a week ago. I have come to the realization that most every restaurant is the same old experience because they all have the same vendors.... More

It took us two visits to get our first meal at Jakes on Gull Lake - the first one was on a day they were closed. There are a group of 5 of us who dine out for lunch on our birthdays and this was one of our best! Food was excellent, service was excellent and we all look forward... More

Honestly I've been here about 10+ times, but got the fire-grilled chicken ciabatta the majority of the time. I love it too much to try anything else. Large portion sizes and great serving staff. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.

We ate here twice in the past week. The first time my husband and I had the seasonal strawberry spinach salad with chicken. It was excellent and fulfilled our wish for dinner. The second time, our daughter in law ordered the same item and the chicken was overdone/dry. Our son's fish and chips was barely edible. My chicken chop salad... More

We have always enjoyed our meals at Jake's, sometimes it's just appetizers, sometimes burgers. Always pleasant wait staff. Only problem is the place has low ceilings and tends to be loud. Food is good, soups and salads generous and tasty.

We came here 2 nights in a row because we really loved the view and the atmosphere and the food was really good. I REALLY loved their Fish and Chips and Walleye sandwich. You get huge portions and their french fries are really thin and perfect. None of my group was very impressed with our specialty drinks...between us, we got... More
