I went to Jake and Rips a few weeks ago for absolutlely the last time. The service was horrible! The place was 50% full and it still took 10 minutes to get seated. It took another 12 minutes to get a drink order in. After ordering my dinner, I left after 45 minutes of waiting on appetizers. Ended up going to Popeyes for chicken.
No remorse orr complimentary drinks for the poor service. A half assed apology from the bartender when she noticed we were leaving. DO NOT GO THERE!
I was recently fishing at Grenada lake and went into town for some food and found Jake and Rips. This place has great food and the appetizers are great. I recommend trying the chips with bbq pork and cheese they were awesome. Not to mention the waiting staff was a group of very attractive women. Really wish I would have asked for the young brunette waitress' number!!
The only reason I am giving this two stars, is because my kids enjoyed their meals. We were passing through on our way home to MO from LA and wanted some good B-BQ. Our ribs smelled and tasted awful. The tast lingered with us, hours later and had only taken a couple bites. The sad part is that our waitress, did not even bother to ask if anything was wrong or offer something in place when she seen we had not eaten a bite.
Well I can not say what the food was like, didn't get to eat. I can say if you have a group of more than 6 people go elsewhere. They will tell you after a half hour wait that they can't accommodate your group. Also the facility is NOT handicapp accessible. The food smelled good though!
I come here when I just wanna hang out by myself (yes, I'm a loner), and the service is usually friendly. The food is always good. And they have the best Electric Lemonade around! But sometimes I have to wait awhile until I'm greeted by anyone. I would recommend a hostess to be placed between the entrances so the customers will feel more welcome.
