Are they the ones waiting for the Messiah to come?

Well all religious Jews are waiting for the messiah. The only difference is that the messiah hasn't been here before (unless you're into the Rebbe, but that's a different story).
The problem with the concept of Messianic Jews is that there's no objective criteria to define who is and is not a Jew. They thus can claim they're Jewish even though by most definitions they aren't. I, as well as most answerers apparenty, don't consider "Messianic Jews" Jews, more like back-to-roots Christians.
This may surprise you, but there are actually "Messianic Jews" in Israel; I remember once I received a pamphlet in my mailbox that listed all the supposed proofs of Christianity in the old Testament. So there ya go.
