This is a viable option if you’re staying in the hotel, but as far as special meals go, this place doesn’t deliver—and really isn’t meant to. For a quick meal, this spot is convenient but doesn’t merit a visit if you’re not already in the area. Jake's hosts the hotels' only character breakfast every Sunday morning; see Character Meals for details. Beer lovers will want to check out the four-sample flights, and four-course pairing dinners held on select nights. Jake's serves a limited late night menu from 10 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., and is usually the only restaurant at the resort serving hot food after midnight.
Setting and Atmosphere
Run-of-the-mill hotel bar and restaurant with a vaguely 1930s “Rick's Cafe” feel. The menu explains the backstory of “Captain Jake McNalley” and his association with Royal Pacific Airways, continuing the overall theme of the resort, which centers around the Golden Age of Travel.
Homemade pretzel rods, charcuterie, kale salad, flatbreads, pork osso buco, ribeye steak & frites, grilled salmon, grilled tomato and mozzarella cheese sandwich.
Live music or karaoke Thursday–Sunday; character breakfast on Sundays. Related blogs: Universal Dining: Jake's American Bar
