Joplins is a very informal restaurant. They have a very limited menu but excellent meatdishes. The athmosphere is pleasantly informal. However, the service is somewhat chaotic and slow. So do not be in a hurry, relax and enjoy the excellent steaks or t bones.

Joplins truly cook amazing steaks. This is a quirky restaurant with a limited menu of steak and no starters but this is what we went for so great. I have marked this down as the service is not so good. The ladies are lovely but can't get to everyone quick enough. We ordered drinks within 15 mins but waited a... More

This is the place to go if you want a perfectly grilled piece of meat. It´s absolutely top-notch, so tender that you can cut it with the back-side of your knife. Highly recommended!

I'm a meat lover and have had quite a few steaks from all over the world - but the ones the gorgeous Ladies serve at Joplin's are some of the best I've ever had, seriously! Also try the yummy Apple Crumble!

Fortunately we arrived early as we didn't have a booking. If steak, egg and chips is what you want, you've come to the right place. The salad is also nice. From what we overheard, all the people around us were regulars - even a group of German tourists.

Not a great place for veggies but for hunter gatherers it is Mecca. Limited menu means that what they serve is just superb. Our steaks were as good as they get and surprisingly the best chips I have ever had. I have no idea how they manage to cook them but that is the case, as normally I eat one... More

Amazing steak and wonderful staff! They are busy and the reason why is because they are brilliant. The steak is superb and the wine matched perfectly. Simply put "over look this establishment at your peril!" The photos we took last night just do not capture the atmosphere and rustic charm of Joplins. We came to eat here as a random... More

Unfortunately it would seem that our table was badly situated in the restaurant. Admittedly we did not ask to be moved as it was a Saturday night and all the tables were booked. They should really have some type of extraction system installed as the fumes from the kitchen were quite overpowering and when we got home we realised our... More
