J Tree is a typical sports bar. The food and beer choices are average and the place is usually filled with college kids. J Tree is good on weekends during the day or weekdays at night. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, expect to be crammed in with wasted college kids.

I love this bar as a sports bar, but the scene completely changes around 9pm every night. Unless you're into the college club scene, avoid the Joshua Tree on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (the basement more so than upstairs).

This is a great place for both college and NFL football though. They have the NFL package and usually do a pretty good job of getting every game up on at least one TV.

This is a fun sports bar with great food! Great place to watch a game with friends. It gets very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. I definitely recommend this place.

Love this sports bar! There are TVs everywhere so you don't miss any of the action. The food is great and cheap. The downstairs is great for dancing.

1- sports bar??!?!? definitely not the best sports bar within a 4 block radius! The Sports Depot is echelons above JTREE and likely the best in the Commonwealth. J tree is fine for a beer or gin and juice. However I had no sense of comforting pride or concern for the patrons interest in the venue, as well as feedback. The bottomline is apparently all that I am told the ownership is planted and watering for.

Pros: Nice space, New looks an appeal

Cons: Lacks personal touch or any hunanistic approach

Welcome to the land of the college kid. There are a lot of sequin tops and stretch pants here if you come on a weekend. Come in on a Sunday and it's dead - unless it's during trivia time. The deep dish fries are pretty tasty, but the clientele is definitely meathead-ish

This place is tremendously popular, and I'm sure there is a reason for it. I just don't see it. There is always a line out front during peak hours at night. I tend to think the bouncers do that intentionally to make the place seem cool. They also don't let anyone in after one, so even if it's dead, you can't run in for the last couple drinks of the night. The food is not good. And google them to find out what's really in their top-shelf bottles.

As much as I want to categorically hate on the place though, I just can't. If it's not wall-to-wall, it's a good place to watch a game. Plus, I think Molson on tap is 3 bucks, which is decent for its kind of place.

Try it out, but don't wait in line and be disappointed.

Yes, it is a college bar on the weekends, but there are still a plethora of working professionals who come. The beer is cheap ($3 for a Coors Light, whereas other places charge $4 and upwards). I can't comment on the food or mixed drinks, as I have never sampled either, but the atmosphere was fun. There usually is a line to get in, but it goes very quickly - even when I was waiting a block away in the line, I got to the entrance within 10 minutes. The downstairs is a lot of fun for groups, but if you're a girl prepare to get hit on. DJ was pretty good, bartenders were busy but attentive. Definitely a fun place for moderately priced drinks and a good place for dancing/meeting people.

Pros: Huge place, cheap drinks, dance-a-rama!

Cons: Lines

This is a fun sports bar for the bar and even the dance scene. The place is huge, but still gets really crowded on nights like Thursdays. It fills up with 20 aomethings and can be a lot of fun. It's right by the T.

Had a great time, was fun as Tonic but better as JT. Been to the JT in Somerville and NYC. If you're a beer enthusiast and go with at least one other thirsty scholar try the "table topper." Trust me, you'll enjoy it..Waitress was fun and enthusiastic, bouncer at the door was funny..

I loved the tonic, but the Joshua Tree is even better. The half price burger deal just cant be beat, and the burgers are fantastic. If you havent checked out the new menu at this place you need to get there soon, you will not be dissappointed. Still has the same great service.

My fiance and I have been going to the Joshua Tree with friends since it opened. The food is really tasty. I recommend getting a side of sweet potato fries to share, as well as the spinach artichoke dip. Joshua Tree does it "sunset style" by piling the dip on top of cruncy pita chips. When we were there for the Sunday Brunch, the owner was very present by checking in with everyone and giving out sweet shots! For the most part the service is good...

Had a previous bad experience, but wanted to try again. No luck. Beware their false advertising. They say food is 1/2 price M-F b/w 5 and 7pm, but I was charged full price. Since I already had been waiting THIRTY MINUTES for my food, I didn't want to make a scene. When I finally got my dinner, the burger was lukewarm and the fries were cold.

In Short
With several satellite packages and plenty of large plasma TVs and high-definition screens, The Joshua Tree keeps sports fans engaged. Weekends see collegiate crowds come in to dance along to DJs. When there are no games…
