Are you ready for some mouth-watering seafood?  Jakes has prided itself since 1988 in preparing fresh, quality seafood using old family recipes and, obviously, some twists on newer menu items.  We pride ourselves in the fact that 95% of the food in our restaurant is homemade and prepared to order.  We opened up with a philosophy of serving old Baltimore-style seafood using the best ingredients while trying to assure that our guests get a value for their dollar.  As the owner/operator of Jakes Seafood, I am constantly in the kitchen to ensure the consistency of freshness and quality is maintained, hand-selecting every ingredient that enters the building.  Our shrimp and scallops are hand-breaded daily with our own breading that is made in-house.  Our Maryland Crab Soup is a recipe that goes back to 1929 to my grandfather (Jake Schneider of the original Jakes Seafood in Baltimore).  Our Famous Seafood Bisque that guests rave about (some say is the best they’ve ever had) is a recipe that was created in our first year in 1988 by my mother and business partner, Rosemary.  The bisque is a rich, cream-based soup with scallops, shrimp, lobster, and crab: thick and rich.  The Yellowfin Tuna and Rockfish come to us fresh from local vendors and usually the fish is caught in the mid-Atlantic area.

The item that really put us on the map is our crab cakes, which again is a family recipe that probably dates back 80 years.  This recipe comes from my other grandfather (Henry Klemkowski who owned Henry’s Bar in Locust Point) and I am not really sure how old this recipe is.  The special thing about our crab cakes is that we use the freshest and the best jumbo lump crab meat that is available.  Our coleslaw (Aunt Susan’s mother’s recipe from Baltimore) and potato salad is all homemade in-house.  Of course, we have steamed clams and steamed mussels, whole lobsters, we have a great selection of meat, prime rib, a children’s menu.  So, if you really want to taste quality seafood, you need to try Jakes Seafood House.  We work very hard to maintain the quality and consistency of every menu item.  Only the best for our guests!
