Mediocre food. Atmospheric old place but you can do a lot better in terms of food quality. Would go somewhere else for the money.

My sister raved about the French Onion Soup and her Halibut Fish and Chips. My Stuffed Halibut with Dill Beurre Blanc was delicious. The best meal we had in Portland. I also liked that you can sit at one of the tables in the bar...area and look out at the passersby, while the restaurant itself is somewhat more formal. Check out the decor; it showcases the second oldest restaurant in Portland so well.More

Jake’s lived up to the hype! Went there with friends and the food and drinks were wonderful. Had the crawfish appetizer and French onion soup to start then the cod with crab and shrimp on top with a great sauce. Wonder chocolate mousse for dessert

Always the old school atmosphere of Jake’s- which means consistent great service, quality food, and comfortable uncrowded cozy dining room. go to when we can’t think of where to go for a special meal that won’t be over-crowded or sold out or over priced. went...for Thanksgiving dinner and had a fine turkey dinner without the ridiculously high Thanksgiving prices at other restaurants in town, plus a choice of other entrees and a good kids menu.More

Our family of 3 had a fabulous dinner! Everything was excellent. We didn't have a reservation, so my husband and I waited it the bar. Our son, 19, went to explore a nearby record store, since he couldn't sit with us. Frozen berry drinks on...the bar specialty menu were great. Once we were seated, my scampi style prawns was one of the best dinners I have ever had! so delicious! my son's seafood fettucine was very good too. We also enjoyed popcorn shrimp and crab and artichoke dip appetizers.More

Three of us met here for an early dinner on a Thursday before a show. Happy hour (daily 3-6pm) is available in the bar area and outdoor seating on the sidewalk. We arrived at 4:15, and the bar area was nearly completely full, but we...were able to get the last table outside (all tables were in the afternoon shade). Service was good, and we were able to order quite reasonable dinners (the etouffee and Cajun chicken sandwich were both $8.45). We would definitely come back and order more of their food specials from the same happy hour menu.More

This was a pretty good restaurant for what it was …. tourist restaurant in the Pearl District. Escargot was good… no toast points 😒 both seafood dishes myself and my partner had were decent. Nothing to rave about. Unfortunately, there was a bar down the...street that felt it was OK to play their music at a decibel level that was unconscionable. Nothing but bass booming behind the nice dinner music in this restaurant …very distracting.More

We went for happy hour excited to try Jake’s, and we very disappointed. Calamari was barely warm. Caesar salad was mediocre. And our waitress was grumpy. Overall not a good experience.

We were a group of 11 people and were given an iconic private room. We ordered everything from steelhead trout, to sturgeon, to salmon and fish stew. The food was imaginative, well prepared and hot. One area for improvement (this was July 8, 2023, 7:15...pm) is that service was VERY SLOW. The waiter himself was prompt but it took well over an hour for our food to come out. So don't dine here if you're in a hurry. You may not have this experience if you're two to four people.More

We've been going to Jakes since 1990. It was always exceptional until the pandemic. The last two times have been mediocre at best. The bread used to be served hot and fresh. Now it's been cold and dry. My wife ordered petrale sole which was...over cooked. They gave us a fresh dish and it was the same. We ordered a couple glasses of wine with dinner and by the time it came we were halfway through our dinner. The price of dinner never really bothered me since the food was always very good. I don't think we will be going back for some time unless we hear it has changed. Too bad.More

Many years since we’ve met friends in Portland and Jake’s didn’t disappoint. Same good atmosphere and welcome as always. After drinks & tasty calamari at the bar, we ate in the restaurant. I enjoyed the Dungeness crab & bay shrimp cakes, delicious & very filling....My husband enjoyed the halibut. Great service and a fun night out.More

Apologies for the tardy response, I hope you have not been waiting all this time. I am not sure of the ownership but, to answer your question, I believe so.

I think it’s walking distance from the hotel. A very short walk.
