Colorfully decorated, New Orleans-themed, Gator Jakes is a sports bar with Big Easy flourishes. The menu aims to please a bar crowd, with Louisiana-inspired burgers, sandwiches, and pastas that include the "Hurricane Burger," the "Crocodile Club," and "Chicken Creole Pasta." Or go for the "Bayou Baby Back Ribs" smothered in Jake's barbecue sauce.
