The waitress was awesome. Very attentive. I think her name was Michelle. The good ribs chicken and brisket was good not great but was a little better than average. I would go back

I wanted to get some wings while in Chicago so I read the reviews and went to Jake Melnick's. I hate to give them too bad of a review only because I am not a fan of breaded wings. In their defense I didn't ask the waiter or look at the menu close enough. The wings came out fast but... More

We were there on a Saturday night, there was about a 45 minute wait. They send you a text message when your table is ready so you can walk around instead of just standing there. The food was great. We were a big group and service was great.

The waitress was incredibly rude from the moment we walked in. We had a large party of 26 so I get it that it was difficult but we asked right away to have separate checks and the waitress wouldn't do it. We then spent over an hour at the end of the meal figuring out the bill. The waitress wouldn't... More

Amy, I wanted to reach out and thank you for your feedback. In no way do we want to provide service that is rude or doesn't fully accommodate your needs. I want to assure you that we are evaluating our split check procedure in regards to large parties so this situation doesn't happen in the future. Thank you, Chris S... More

The two of us walked in here last minute on a Sunday for the Packers playoff game and they were able to find us a table. They have really awesome wings, but their other food was just ok. Huge portions though. I will go back just for the wings though and the service was very friendly!

Food - If there is such thing as a gourmet wing restaurant, Jake's is the place. We each had spilt orders of wings and sampled a variety and they were absolutely amazing. The Tater Tots with truffle oil were a flavor explosion . Service- We were seated but not really noticed by the staff for about 10 minutes, but once... More

While visiting Chicago we actually overheard about this place while walking around town and had to give it a go. Hearing it had live sports too was also an added bonus! We weren't disappointed! The wings were absolutely incredible! Do note, the burgers and chips were also incredibly good! We went on a normal weeknight and this place was rammed,... More
