We recently had lunch here and everyone was very pleased-My granddaughter enjoyed her chicken fingers -and all of us were happy with our choices--The menu is varied-many choices of apps-soups-salads-burgers-sandwiches- ribs-meat and fish dishes-Our waiter was very attentive-The décor is modern-there is an outside seating area-Prices are reasonable-They do get very busy for dinner-I suggest coming early if possible

We had a very enjoyable dinner. They have a good menu- salads, appetizers, soups, sandwiches, burgers, entrees, drinks, and desserts. I started with a side salad - very fresh. For my main course I had the Grilled honey chicken salad- good size serving and very fresh and tasty. My husband had the side Caesar salad, French onion soup and Chicken... More

Not sure what the appeal of Joes is. It used to be good. They had a desert I loved and it's now off the menu after 20 years. It's what drew me in. Now no more. It's just average food. A small step up from Friday's So much better in town I can't see coming back unless Mud Pie winds... More

I've been to Joe's many, many times and I always find myself thinking what great value for my money. Inside you will find plenty of tables and booths along with a fantastic bar area to eat in as well. Simply put, this is a great place where taste, quantity and price are equal.

I have gone to Joe's for years. It had been awhile so I came tonight. They revamped their menu and all my old favorites are gone. You can't even get nachos anymore. Poor choice by joes. I even heard someone at the next booth complaining about the new menu.

At these prices you expect a delightful dining experience. We didn't get one. We arrived on time for our reservation but nonetheless waited 30 minutes in a waiting area as crowded as the NY subway at rush hour. They got my wife's order wrong and we sent it back and waited another 30 minutes. I ordered steak and a baked... More

We have been to Joe's off and on for eight years and it has always been an excellent experience. There was a spell where they took a few favorites, especially the French Dip, off the menu, but as of last week, a new menu with a focus on what they do best, and French Dip, which is shaved prime rib,...

Rare to find deviled eggs on a menu! Garnished with a little touch of bacon, they were excellent! Cuban Soda also was both unusual and quite good. We were a table of 6, everyone ordered differently, every plate was good -- no disappointments. Competent staff, good atmosphere, reasonable prices, family friendly -- I was impressed.

Joe's is a staple, and the food is consistently solid. This particular location is spacious and well decorated. Staff is also really friendly and management has always been really good about fixing any issues that arise.

But oh what a disappointment. First of all, the brick chicken was not brick chicken. Oh and it was half raw. Yuk. Then there is the BBQ platter. Mind you this is not a cheap fast food joint at least that's how they present themselves. The quality of the meats must be very very low. The brisket, which usually always... More
