Was a regular.... with 4-5 others every other Friday generally. The service and food quality started to get poor so we stopped going. Haven't been there in a few years, but heard Jakes has a new owner. So we thought we would give it another shot! Wow! Things got worse!

I mean Wow!

Read on!

This is a restaurant....... food service ...... there are some basics. Like.... Good management, food to serve, enough help, enough knives and forks, enough glasses and the help/management should not be nibbling and eating off of the food plated and waiting to be served. Especially when the customers can sit at the table at the entrance of the kitchen (no door) and watch this going on. It would also be nice if the help had enough manners to not pick at the customers food waiting to be served with knives that were just in their mouth!

Two people at our table witnessed that happen last evening. 8-27-10. We confronted the help/manager who we just watched do that and he flatly denied it. 2 people at our table in perfect view within 10'! It must happen so often he does not even realize he is doing this OR that it is wrong! Neither is acceptable.

We were asked to leave. Thank you actually!

So Let's review........

No food! ......poor service! help! glasses or flatware!...... and a manager/(owner?) who would rather pick at the customers food with dirty utensils than pitch in and help wash to get what limited equipment out to the customers!

Get me out of there!

Leaving was the best thing that could have happened.

This is Buffalo there are LOTS of great restaurants for Friday Fishfrys

We are good for at least $3000. per year (Min $60x50) just for Friday Fishfrys. Not another nickel here!

Count on it!

You may think you had a great meal there...but were you actually watching? We were and it was disgusting! What are we not seeing in there?

Want to guess what happened to the food we ordered and never got??

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Great Awesome!
Wouldn't know to go if it weren't for the mailman who is a retired minor league umpire. Amazing hand cut fries, get 'em loaded. The firehouse across the street boasts "built in 1903" and the firehouse chilli is firehouse hot: the best I ever had. Thank goodness we could chase it with a the ice cold beer. Be sure to check out the mural: we were thinking Edith Bunker might be looking here for Archie, and voila! We topped off lunch with a steak sandwich that was broiled to perfection, served in a unique style that was melt in your mouth great! The only reason the service is rated great rather than awesome is that the keep was kept busy, but all was worth waiting for. Thank you, Papa Jake's, for a great afternoon at the saloon watching the NCAA's.

We were up in Buffalo for a wedding and went to this place on Pubcrawlers advice. The food was amazing. A tuna steak sandwich with steak part as big as my hand, and a fresh salad wiht homemade mushroom vinegrette. The taps were in full Octoberfest glory...Flying Bison Octoberfest and Oatmeal Stout, Spaten Munich and another german Hefeveisen. Some other import taps, sprinkled with Red Hook and other imports. Definitely would go back you again!

Jake's is not strictly a beer bar, though it sports an excellent selection of taps and a decent array of bottles. But you'd short yourself if you didn't hog into some of their delicious food, like the grilled meatloaf on french bread, a slab of robust meatloaf the size of a Steven King paperback with fried onions and melted probolone, or the justly celebrated fresh-cut fries, or the snappy, tangy barbecue wings. Great, friendly place, one of Buffalo's best taverns. Go. Now.
