Jake's celebrates half a century of fine dining
In a little more than a week, Jake's Restaurant, 21445 Gumina Rd., in Brookfield (or Pewaukee, depending on who you ask!), celebrates 50 years of serving steaks and other fine dining entrees to Milwaukee-area patrons.
Restaurant owners Jake Replogle Jr. and wife, Karen, will host an anniversary event featuring Jake's signature tenderloin steak, drink specials and an opportunity to reminisce about -- and share memorabilia from -- the restaurant's past. Replogle bought the business from his eponymous father in 2005.
The event takes place Sunday, May 23 from 4 to 8 p.m.
There will be a raffle for a steak dinner at 1960s prices, with up to 100 winners. And all diners can have the tenderloin with onion rings on top for $10.95 (the same deal is offered as a "Customer Bailout" on Mondays). There will be $1 PBR taps, $1.95 Old Fashioneds and $9.95 pitchers of house wine, too.
The Replogles are prepping a time capsule full of mementos from the restaurant and patrons who donate an item will get a gift certificate to the restaurant in return.To reserve a spot at the event, call (262) 781-7995.
This is by far one of my favorite restaurants of all time!! I have gone to Jake's since I was a child and it is always a special treat! One of my all time favorites is the XL Onion rings that come with your meal. My new favorite is their salmon. m-m-m. Every time I go, I feel like a celebrity. I think the exceptional food and unparalleled service are what has kept Jake's open longer than 99.9% of Milwaukee area restaurants. I am getting hungry just thinking about it, time to make a reservation! Congratulations Jake's!!
