The food was good. The desserts were delicious. It was a little bit noisy but to be expected because of the type of restaurant it was. The wait staff was pleasant but slow.

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.

The bartenders (Colin? and Kelli) were great and delivered wonderful service. The kitchen messed up my food order. I explained to the manager that it was incorrect. He went back to correct it, and delivered my order incorrectly a second time. I explained the situation to the bartender and she corrected it. Third time was the charm, but it was annoying. Everything else was great. Awesome selection of games to watch, lively staff and clientele. I really enjoy visiting this JnJ's location.

Went to watch some games for March Madness and got exactly the experience we were looking for. Half priced wings on Mondays is a great deal, other apps were superb, and whatever their in-house "Jake n Joes" Blueberry beer was was fantastic! Our waitress was super quick and friendly, and overall the restaurant did a great job of respecting social distancing.
