Get there early on a Friday. It gets really crowed. The food is good and the services is to.

While I visited, the service was great. I liked the fact that my server was kind and the bus boys and bartender were all helping with the tables despite being busy, and all of them were friendly. Keep up the good work. I am not sure based on just one visit if this is always the case, especially since I read a couple reviews of very disappointed people. That said, keep up the great work and you shouldn't ever have to worry about disappointed customers. It would be even better if you could come up with a better system for people to wait for a table (place to stand, way to keep correct order, collect names).

The bartender , Frankie Testa knows your name, and what you like to eat and drink, once you have been there only a few times. That's a special touch !

A little dirty, bathrooms need to be kept better.

It is a great place to sit at the bar and have a drink, watch sports or sit and have a burger and great homemade fries. Not fancy and very reasonably priced.

The booths are too secluded

From Our Editors

On certain days, Papa Jake's Saloon dishes out prime rib or seafood specials, but owner Scott Leary doesn't want that to distract from the rest of the menu. As he told Buffalo Rising contributor Chao Li, “Everything's special at Papa Jakes.” Leary buys the freshest seafood available for dishes such as steamed snow crab legs served with drawn butter or clams Casino that Li says arrive in a still-bubbling sauce that seems to cook the morsels before your very eyes. For each Friday’s fish fry, chefs bread fillets of fish by hand and simmer pots of seafood bisque and New England clam chowder, whose rich scents attract both humans and sharks disguised as humans. Diners can also opt for the mainland taste of charbroiled burgers with fresh-cut french fries, washing it all down with frosty glasses of draft beers or mixed drinks from a full bar.
