Jake's on the Lake Restaurant Review

: Jake’s could be like some waterfront restaurants, content to let location do the work, but the kitchen here is more ambitious. Orange chili sauce spikes a seafood cocktail. Lettuce wraps carry a fresh, zesty cargo of duck, mint and basil. Ahi poke rolls offer just enough sesame, and ginger eases the richness of braised beef short ribs. We’re not usually fans of monster-truck desserts, but break out the spoons and share the hula pie made with macadamia nut ice cream. Jake’s has a stone fireplace and a comfy, beamed interior. Live music keeps the bar hopping on Friday nights.
