    Great Lunch

    We were there today and it was so nice. We have a 3 month old puppy and it was so nice to have her with us for lunch. We also sat by 2 other tables that also had their pups. As my son said it was a “puppy party”.

    Found this! Thanks BringFido!

    Spent an hour or so on this sunny Friday with my kids and our 6 month old puppy at nearby Brookdale Dog Park. The last day of the kids’ Spring Break and wanted to do something fun with them. We adopted this rescue back in March and wanted to include him for lunch…found this place! The staff was welcoming and directed us to a table in their patio. It was just nice to have our dog with us. I got the 5-cent tour of the place. What? A stage for live performances? I just found a new hangout! The kids and I ordered basic bar food: chicken fingers, fries, sliders, and wings. Food was delicious! Our dog was fed at the park, so we just brought his water bowl. Christie was kind to bring water for our dog along with our beverage order. They do have bowls available. We just happened to bring our own. We were the only ones with a dog, so I am not sure how this would be with other dogs present. Im pretty easy going and never feel entitled. If my dog can’t settle down OR we caused another dog who was there before us to get excited, I would either leave the dog in the car OR just order take out. Just having a pet friendly option at this place is AMAZING!

    Terrific place!

    My wife, dog, and I went for lunch today and everything was amazing. The staff was all extremely nice and professional, atmosphere was great, and the food was really good and priced well! Definitely will be going again!

    Not what I expected

    I was there on a day it was very quiet. Just 1 other table. The actress was nice but afraid of dogs. I have an 8 year old king cavalier. I found that odd.
    The food was not good at all. My sandwich roll was stale. We just mentioned how hard it is to get bread during Covid. That does not give them the right to serve me stale bread. Also the portions were small. Fries were soggy. No thanks.

    While the restaurant is definitely willing to bring your pup water and the waitresses are so friendly only bring your pup If he doesn’t bark. For a dog friendly place I would
    have thought that one or two barks would have been tolerated. My dog was in no way loud at all I wouldn’t have brought him but before I even tried to get a bone out of my bag others complained. That triggered the owner coming out and telling me I have to calm him down or I would need to leave. I decided not to stay, waitress felt bad she was nice as did some people near me. I do think it just depends on the other patrons. Since eating outdoors is only allowed at this time you are taking a chance that others will be understanding.

    Great spot

    WE recently brought our dog here for a few drinks/appetizers on the patio. The staff couldn’t have been any more accommodating to our girl from bringing out a water bowl to telling us all about their plans to make their patio even more pet friendly. The owner even came out to meet our pup. Such a great spot for dog owners and animal lovers!

    Great Spot

    I've brought my dog here twice in one month. Both times were during the week around 2pm. The waiters were great and brought water out for my pup right away. They asked before petting him and didn't complain when he barked at everyone who walked by.

    Great Outdoor Patio Seating For Dogs

    We stopped by Just Jakes and sat outside at the outdoor patio area. They have a nice big screen TV and they immediately brought our pup Ellie a bowl of water upon arrival. Very attentive staff and overall great time. Several other dogs were there and all the owners were very courteous. Well worth the trip with the pup!

    A must for the pups

    I LOVE bringing my dog here! Not only are they super attentive to his water bowl, but they also gave him a hamburger all cut up! I did pay for it, but still. They fed him on a plate and everything! Super nice staff too. I would highly suggest this place for your dogs.
