Jake’s Seafoods

When you’ve had it with ersatz seafood joints that underfeed and overcharge you, set your sights on a place that doesn’t pretend to be anything but what it is: a bare-bones fish shack. Jake’s spotlights freshness and variety in simple but classic preparations. There’s plenty of atmosphere; just make sure to snag a table on the enclosed patio, where the specials are served over the waters they were fished from, and sunsets dapple the abutting bay.
