This place is like a good ole dive type joint. If you like pool, jeans, sneakers and a casual night out, this is the place. If you are the designated driver, make sure you find the free parking two streets over.. you don

We ate at the upstairs cafe for lunch today and it was not good. Maybe we ordered the wrong food but the hotdogs were very salty and my BLT was forgotten by the waitres,. who acted indifferent about forgetting my order. The place feels greasy and the booth we sat in was ripped open and had stuffing coming out. Trash can in the toilet area was over flowing with garbage and it was only 11:30am. What a waste of $40, never again. If you're with your kids and need a quick fun meal run over to Johnny Rockets.

I've been coming here for years. The pool tables are great and not too expensive. There's a free parking lot a couple blocks away on Delacey St. and their chicken tenders and vanilla milkshakes are great! Fun to take a date who doesn't like to wear heels.

I hold jakes and the 35er in the same light. If your looking for a place to go with some friends and get wrecked, Jakes is a good option to the 35er. They serve GIANT beer steins for like 7 bucks but get them before it fills up because they can run out of the big glasses. Pool tables abound the bomb shelterish basement. Most people don?t understand pool etiquette so watch for random cues shooting out at your billiards. They have a juke box with some solid music, but the people their can get testy if you play good music so make sure to mix some puff daddy or Clay Aiken in there to please the locals. The doorman is nice and has been their since I was in high school, but don?t let his cool demeanor fool you. If you step out of line or hurl on a pool table he will quickly ask you to leave, however don?t let that discourage you from getting crazy.

PROS: Dark so you cant see the people there, BIG BEERS! Cheap pool
CONS: They get angry when you spew.

I love to stop into Jakes for lunch when I am craving a a really good burger. They are big without giving you an overwhelming amount of food and everything on the menu is decently priced. Your food is cooked on the grill right there behind the bar so you are able to see everything that is going onto your food. Jakes also has awesome milk shakes made with icecream. At night they are also have biliards downstairs. I have never played pool here but have heard that it is a happening place.

The milkshakes are really good but the burgers at times leave one with indigestion. Good fries, decent service. I've had better food though. I haven't been to the pool hall but I'd be willing to give it a chance. I hear Jake's has costume parties too.

Jake's is a great place in Old Town Pasadena. Upstairs they serve awesome old fashion hamburgers, downstairs they have alot of pool tables available with a good slection of cold draft beers. A good place to hang and enjoy happy hour.

Heard many things about this place, friends have told me and recommended to go to this place. The location is excellent and at night is comfortable since it's on old town pasadena, good views.

Do yourself a favor and stay out of Jakes, for dinner at least. It is a cheap burger joint in Pasadena. One of Jake's only redeeming qualities is that it was one of the first places back in old town Pasadena when the city was trying to revitalize the area. The billiards downstairs is decent, but there are better places to play in the area in my opinion..

I like playing pool here because it's lower key than Q's. Can get a table pretty quickly there too. Not as trendy as other billiard places. I've never eaten there so I can't comment on the food.

This is your standard pool hall. It's not an up-scale trendy club, but if you're looking to play pool, they have lots of tables. The drinks are ok and somewhat over-priced. It's not the cleanest joint in town, but it's not a total dive, either.

I've only been to this diner once, but would not recommend it or go back again. The place didn't seem clean or well taken care of. The service was poor. Although I love billiards, I wouldn't go back here. It just feels dirty all around. Ir you're planning to eat or hang out in Old Town, there are much better places than Jake's.

Poor food. Pool hall is nice. Somewhere you can go and play pool without smelling 20 year so cigarette smoke. However, you pay extra for the clean pool area.

Ok this place is a little hidden but a good find if your looking for a little pool hall that's not too crowded but still has a fun feeling to it. Just look for Jake's Burger stand out front...go down the alley a little ways until you find the stairs to Jake's Billiard's. It's a cool place to hang out!

This place is a great place to shoot pool and to have a drink. Eat upstairs and go downstairs to watch games, drink and play billards. Their specialty drinks are worth trying.

I havent been down stairs to the billiards room, however I do go here for their food. Their Chicken Strips are really good. Large pieces, white meat, and great breading. Their burgers are pretty good as well, though not the best. The service upstairs is good. Oh, and their strawberry shakes are good as well.

I enjoy going out dancing or going for drinks but I am very serious when it comes to playing pool. This place has the most consistent pool tables in old town. Table prices are comparable for Old Town and the food is good to go with it.
