    Looking at the prices, I was going to guess mid-60s (even the burger is almost $2). The old-timey menu reminds me of Farrell’s, which first opened here in Portland in 1963, and the Old Spaghetti Factory which opened here in 1969, so that puts it right in that time period as well.

    Thanks a bunch,Dude for the vintage Jake’s bill o’ fare.Brings back some memories. I always got the deep fried scallop basket,every time. I have one from the early 70’s that is very similar,graphics a bit different. The whole Jake’s history is a real piece of Portland lore. The part i like is how Bill McCormick ended up with it and also when Doug Schmick came to become his partner. Maybe not as interesting, from a historical angle, as the early history,but closer to today’s point of reference.
