Business casual with an Hawaiian flare, this restaurant is very poplular as one of only two restaurants in Del Mar that is actually located on the beach. They have a retractable patio that can become enclosed during foul weather which is pretty nice. This restaurant is a bit more upscale than Poseidon but especially nice for more formal dining and enjoying the beach view.
The prices are about average for the area, but high if you're on a budget. Seafood and American cuisine is offered during lunch and dinner and they have a full service bar.
Favorite Dish: Happy Hour is the the best time to come. A limited bistro menu is offered at half-price and Mai Tais are only $3.00. Monday through Friday the Happy Hour is from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 2:30 p.m. and 4:30pm.
Jake's truly has a spectacular oceanfront view and friendly staff. I've been there many times and never have been let down by the food or the service.
Favorite Dish: The swordfish, best I've had anywhere, including Hawaii!
