New Hannawa Falls restaurant experiencing busy first weeks


PIERREPONT — Overlooking the Raquette River in the hamlet of Hannawa Falls, Jake’s on the Water opened its doors over Memorial Day weekend. The new eatery, at 5726 Route 56, is co-owned by Marc and Christine Compeau.

The first two weeks “have been beyond our wildest expectations. It’s been absolutely so much fun, and we are working as hard as we can to try and get ahead of this thing,” Mr. Compeau said. “My wife and I live three miles away, and we’ve always liked the location. We almost bought the same property 10 years ago and were negotiating with the owners. For 10 years we have been thinking about what we were going to do.”

The restaurant most recently housed the Canoe Place Inn, a restaurant and pub, before the Compeaus bought it last year.

The restaurant is named after the couple’s former yellow Labrador retriever whom they had for 11 years, according to their Facebook page.

To make a reservation at Jake’s, call 274-9300.

The restaurant’s kitchen manager is Wally Siebel, former Times restaurant critic, and the bar is open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight.
