How (and Why) to Review And Rate Local Businesses on Patch

Reviewing and rating businesses on Patch is simple to do and helpful to your neighbors.

Who knows Waltham businesses better than the people who frequent them?

Well, no one. That means you are in the prime position to share your knowledge with your neighbors, helping them make decisions about everything from where to have their car repaired to what restaurant has the best kids' menu.

Waltham Patch wants to help you share that knowledge with our five-star Rating system feature of Patch Places.

It's simple to rate and review businesses on Waltham Patch, and it's one way you can show support for your favorite local businesses while helping your neighbors make informed decisions about where to spend their time and money.

Here are the steps:

  1. Log in to Waltham Patch (if you don't already have an account, just click "Sign Up," in the upper right-hand corner of the page to set one up.)
  2. Click "Places" on the menu bar and then search for the business you want to rate.
  3. Click the "Rate This Business" link at the top of the business' listing page.
  4. Decide how many stars the business has earned and leave a comment justifying your rating. (Yes, "Best chicken fingers EVER!" is an acceptable justification.)
  5. Click "Review It!"

There is no limit to how many businesses you can review, so jump in and start sharing your local expertise. The more reviews people provide, the more informed your next decisions will be.

Next time you really need to repair the roof or rebuild that stone wall or it's 4:45 p.m. on a Tuesday and your kids start to whine about what's for dinner, you can reply, "We're eating out!" and know exactly what nearby restaurant your trusted neighbors say has the best kids' deal.
