Way Overrated. – I was in town for a week visiting family and they decided to take me out to the 'nicest' restaurants in Saginaw. I asked the server what Microbrews they had but both servers had no idea what a microbrew was. The bartender suggested a coors light. What a joke! The rest of the night was just bad service all around. It took forever for us to get what we had ordered. I ordered the Calamari for an appetizer and they tasted like cold chewy onion rings. Everyone's food looked gross to be honest. The baked sweet potato was probably microwaved along with the chicken. It was so nasty!
I had heard that Jake's was the place to go in Saginaw for the best everything.. best atmosphere, food, drinks, etc. NO WAY! Jake's is over rated by far!! Would not suggest to friends and will not be returning to Jake's.
The best high-end restaurant in Saginaw – For higher=end dining this is the only game in town. For a town the size of Saginaw you would think there would be more choices.
Staff is typically very attentive, the owners are very friendly and the crowd is Saginaw's professional class. Food is great most of the time but misses the mark for the highest rating. This place would probably be just a better than average place in the big city. It could stand to be more creative and not so typical.
Great wine list if they have it in stock.
your being taken advantage of – The food here looks like a good selection. However if you order the fish it will be overcooked. If you order a steak it will be just what you order the particular cut but its hard to ruin a steak. The desert comes from a box the salad will be wilted the dressing will come from a bottle. The wine will be over priced and perhaps shelved to long after being previously opened. The lunch is he best thing this place has to offer though it will be dripping in grease. Don't be confused by how it looks the trim was easy to do, the woodwork is from home depot, the bar counter top is thin granite as cheap as possible (have fun breaking you stemware). The best thing you could do if you want fine food or a nice place to take someone is go to Spencers in Saginaw Township or Nino's Family restaurant in Bay CIty.
