Ordered a pick up order, they only had made half of the order I had to wait 15 minutes for the rest of the order to be... made because the person that put in the order didn't turn the paper over to see there was more to the order. Another pick up customer came in after us and they forgot half of her order as well.The food that was sitting out was not good, fries were cold a soggy and the bread was hard and cold. Although when I asked if our food would still be warm they assured me it would be warm.The chowder was good though.read more

My first time there last night and it was fantastic! Prices were reasonable. The portions were generous! The staff was... very accommodating and friendly. I would definitely recommend their lobster roll with their cesar salad. The dressing made in house was so tasty and the lobster roll literally melted in your mouth. I would highly recommend and can't wait to go back!read more

My girlfriend took me for lunch at Jake's as I'm retiring soon. We both had the salmon special. It was delicious! ... Salmon was served on a bed of jasmine rice and julienned vegetables and pumpkin sauce. So different and so tasty! The food is always good but this dish was wonderful!read more

Amazing food. Massive portions. My first restaurant experience since COVID. We sat outside, the patio was properly... spaced and not crowded. I felt very safe and enjoyed my meal! I cannot wait to come back and try more on the menu!read more

While as always the food was amazing, albeit a little cold, but that was a first for us in 10 years, the service is... really going down hill to the point my family and friends are debating trying another place. The waitress got everything wrong and forgot to give us utensils and what we needed for the lobster. Then when we told her she said oh I put it on the chair over in the corner??? Why and if so why didn't you tell us?? The lobster was not very warm and she also forgot which order went to who. In addition to that an older female server came down to the tent and accused us of moving our table to close to the stairs. We didn't touch the table you guys put it there!! She was really rude. The tent should have been sealed up due to all the bugs and the bees flying around the food. Come on Jake's get your act together! You get a 2 for your food, but fix your service.read more

The clam chowder is very creamy and tasty. They ran out of buns for the lobster roll so it was a poor substitute they... gave us on a hamburger bun. I would go back again to have a lobster roll on the bun they advertise.read more

Coconut shrimp was amazing - the sauce and overall taste was delicious. Lobster roll was pretty good but think it... could've been bigger for the price. Overall, good ambience and good food!read more

I usually have all good things to say about Jake’s but I was disappointed with the food yesterday. They advertise as... being #1 for their lobster roll and how 1b of fresh lobster is steamed then used to make the sandwich, but this was not the case. Not a lot of lobster and more bread than anything. For 30.00 I would just order a lobster tail with sides. Tip for ownership: bring back the surf and turf burger this is why I would always come back!read more

One word could describe my visit to The Keg is perfect. Been there for my husband birthday celebration, food was great... and service was excellent. It was my first time ever and I really enjoyed. Love to go back again. We had prime rib and Parmesan Crusted Halibut, wish took picture to post but it was looking so delicious couldn't stop my self to start eating right away 🤤 and as we just thinking about getting dessert we got complimentary pie to complete our celebration. thanks for great food.read more

Loved it, only patio/reservation service because of covid but the food and service were great. I had the west coast... fish fry and my wife had the lobster roll and we had buffalo cauliflower bites as an appetizer, was all excellent. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend 👌 😊read more

We have been here several time in the past year and it has always been good experience. The staff are always friendly,... the food is great and the atmosphere is unique. They have adapted well to the patio only restrictions and are still providing exceptional service.read more

Food was lovely and portions were huge....the short rib pasta while not my dish, made me wish I'd ordered it. Having... said that, the filet was cooked to perfection and a knife wasn't even needed 😍So as it's the time of COVID, we sat outside and our waitress did great accommodating everyone. It was super hot and she had to wear a face shield. I felt badly for her but she handled it like a champ 👍This was our first visit and we'll absolutely return!!read more

A true hidden gem! I'm generally leery about seafood in Ontario (I've been spoiled by seafood in Halifax), but the... food was great. I had the fish tacos that were superb, satisfyingly zesty. My buddy and I also shared some calamari. It was light, crispy, and perfectly seasoned. The wait staff was great too!read more

This place is amazing. Found it on Google looking for an oyster restaurant and BAM. Easily the best oysters. Amazing... mussels. Get them mixed they are to die for. Amazing fish tacos. And they are great with the new “normal”. Social distancing is perfect. We sat on their patio that they have on the grass. Perfect perfect. I highly recommend!!!read more

Staff was excellent, they not only had sanitizer available but also sunscreen and bug spray if guests felt they needed... that. Seating was spaced out very well and lots of shaded tables. Haddock and chips were enjoyed and so was the fish taco and also the ribs. Beef dip and Lobster roll were not a great choice today however because the beef was bland and seemed to be steamed in water which may be why it was tasteless., Lobster roll was not seasoned well either.read more

Had the fish sandwich with finglerling potatoes. For dessert I had the butter tart cheesecake, which was absolutely... excellent, though the butter tart layer was a little slim. I also got to try the baked apple crisp a friend had ordered, also delicious.read more
