Happy Hour Info: Jake’s would be a great place to hang out with your grandpa, and I mean that in a good way. The place has been around since the Cleveland administration, and it wears its age as a badge of pride. The waiters, for example, wear white coats, and it’s adorable in a Colonial Williamsburg kind of way. Portland’s venerable seafood restaurant offers a solid array of ocean-based happy hour options. The garlic steamed mussels ($5.95) are delightful little protein pellets soaked in a sauce of wine, garlic, and butter; sauce that I then soaked up with bread, because I have no shame. More traditional bar fare like spinach and artichoke dip ($2.95) is good, but not nearly on the level of the excellent mussels. One small issue: There’s no crawfish on the menu. Crawfish are Jake’s thing, but you don’t have them at happy hour? C’mon! JOE STRECKERT
