Love Jake n Joe’s Waltham. Sometimes it’s crazy loud with lots going on & I love it. Sometimes it’s quieter & peaceful & I love it. Always see friends there & the food is underrated. Everything is at least really good & lots of stuff is fantastic & their drinks are top notch. Great staff……..definitely my “go to”……😊👍❤️🍀🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

We had an outstanding server named Jeannelle. She was very friendly, funny, professional and made good food recommendations. The food was very good and the environment was fun with so many flat screen TVs to watch all of the NFL games. We'll be back.

We checked in, was seated and waited 10 minutes without a server coming to our table. I looked for a manager to ask for a server without success. At that point, I decided to leave. Very disappointed.

While visiting from California this was a great find. Sunday evening we had NFL games everywhere and with the Red Sox’s playing at home in the playoffs the crowd was electric. So nice I’m heading back tonight for Monday Night and another Sox’s game. 👍👍

Hello Nicke, Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. We often show very important games and therefore especially during playoff season it can sometimes get louder than normal. However next time you are in if you ask one of our team members for a quiter table we do have areas of our restaurant that we can accomodate. We hope to see you again.

Was terrible before, just a place to drink a couple of beers and catch a game. The food was never ‘good’. Now, the food is even worse - The boneless wings were well done and dry, nachos had a weird aftertaste and the service was awful

We've been to this Jake & Joe's many times and it has been enjoyable, but we went for dinner on Saturday night and the experience has turned me off. They were out of two of the appetizers that we wanted, the waitress seemed very uninterested in being there or helping us.

I visited two weeks ago, and though they canceled my reservation by mistake via the app, everything was wonderful. This time around food was good, they were showing the fight which was fantastic, but the service from one of the bartenders left a lot to be desired. She wasn't very attentive. I had to flag her down a few times for things. I asked for a water refill 3 times before she actually refilled it. I ordered a Mt Dew and she responded with "We have Sierra Mist." Excuse me? That isn't the same thing. She said they didn't carry Mt Dew. When I explained it was on the menu and I could see it on their soda machine, she said "Let me check.." I asked that if they were out of syrup or something, I'd stick with water. It was an odd situation. It wasn't her first day either because she was the bartender during my other visits.
