Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant
A downtown Portland fixture since 1892, this restaurant specializes in Pacific Northwest seafood. The menu at Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant changes daily, depending on what’s in season. The namesake seafood — crawfish — is available from April to October and comes from central Oregon. Sturgeon and razor clams are also popular, when available, as are staples like stuffed salmon and Dungeness crab legs sautéed with artichokes and mushrooms. Jake’s basement bakery yields desserts like Key lime pie and the chocolate “bag” filled with mousse and berries.
