Always like to hit Jake's when we are in VA Beach. Food is always pretty decent and reasonable and staff is friendly and helpful.

I don’t have one bad thing to say about this place. Everything I ordered was great! The 3 people I was with loved their meals as well. Our waitress was very friendly and sweet. We were greeted with a warm welcome as soon as we came in. Food came out quick and I just wish this place was where I live (Altavista, VA). Next time we go ba ... read more

I am never disappointed at Jake's! Awesome food and service every time I have been there. If you are looking for a special treat for Thanksgiving or Christmas, get their smoked Turkey fresh off the smoker, especially for Thanksgiving! You will not be disappointed!!

It comes on a big platter which includes 1/2 BBQ chicken, 1/2 lb BBQ Brisket, full rack of ... read more

Decided to try after seeing ad in hotel room magazine and glad we did! We ordered ribs, wings, hot links, fresh cut fries and sweet tea. All delicious, generous portions, and reasonably priced. Would visit again.

The sauces were excellent, the Mac and cheese was great. The brisket was a little chewy and a bit disappointing.

Had it as a retirement party as catering, absolutely out of this world. Pulled pork was so good, great sauses too.

Their Caribbean wings are amazing, with the right amount of spice. They aren't tiny either.

Jake's is one of those restaurants that, for some reason, we don't think of hitting for lunch or dinner. So, this evening we got 2 entrees of brisket to take home, as we live around the corner. When we got it home and dished out the food we were floored by the awesomeness. The brisket was spot on without any toppings, then we applied ... read more

Omg one of the areas best kept secrets. We got there early for dinner and tried out the dinner for 4. I put the food to test. I'm a huge fan of bbq this was spot on. From the brisket to rips to chicken to pulled pork. There baked beans were very tasty and fries are homemade. We ended up eating half and bringing the rest back. I will ... read more

Vacation BBQ
Had a craving for BBQ while on vacation and gave Jake's a try. It was a nice meal with good service and great sweet tea.

Delicious BBQ! We got the platter for 5 adults and 2 kids. We left stuffed and satisfied. I thought it was great value.
Galen Campbell via google.com - Jul 22, 2018
Great service, food came extremely quick & was hot/fresh. The sides didn't impress me (although we couldn't get what we originally wanted as the fryer was broke) or my son, but the bbq was hot & delicious. I will definitively be going back.

I give the food a 5 but I think they were short handed tonight. Couldn't be helped and I'm not complaining. Just explaining 4 out of 5. The good was excellent. Some of the best BBQ I've eaten in a restaurant. Period.
James Sexton via google.com - Jul 17, 2018
Amazing place, had a nice waitress who game back every 15 minutes. We had great food, we all ordered the beef brisket, coleslaw, and greenbeans. Everything was amazing except for the brisket, it was only a little dry and had no sauce, but adding the sauce provided for you on the table makes it 10 times better. The portions were medio ... read more

This is a review for Jake's smokehouse BBQ. We went there on a Saturday afternoon, and surprisingly even though it was off lunch and off dinner it was still fairly crowded. That is a good sign that the food will not be bad. As we entered the restaurant we were seated by a pleasant young lady and then waited for a waitress. I do belie ... read more
