Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Revel in the fruits of the sea with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood and steak-house fare and drinks at Jake’s Boathouse in Brampton.
Jake’s Boathouse sates the growls of hungry stomachs with a multifarious menu replete with fresh seafood and steak-house fare served in a dining room festooned with nautical memorabilia and decor. Celebrate the recently ratified Surf 'n' Turf treaty with nibbles of the bacon-wrapped jumbo scallops ($8.95), or partake in the centuries-old partnership of finned eats and potatoes with Jake’s fish 'n' chips, featuring beer-battered haddock fillets and crispy fries ($12.95 for two pieces). Landlubbing tongues delight in a new york strip loin ($18.95 for a 12 oz. steak) forged from USDA Choice corn-fed beef that has been aged for a minimum of 21 days to infuse it with wisdom and the authority to demand that kids stay off its lawn. Savvy chefs slowly steam the lean-trimmed pork back ribs ($19.95 for a full rack) in beer until they tumble off the bone, grilling them on a sizzling inferno before basting each protein in a choice of sauces, including barbecue and honey garlic. A selection of herbivorous options pleases more vegetable-centric palates, such as a veggie burger ($8.95) that treats tummies to a meat-free feast.
Quaff a vinous libation from the wine list in the refined, wood-panelled dining room furbished with model ships and dangling lights to help guide forks safely around craggy teeth and into mouth ports. On select evenings, Jake’s Boathouse hosts live entertainment to get spoons and shoulders shaking like a rhythmically gifted bobble head. Check its online calendar for the entertainment lineup.
