Near the Homewood Inn where we made an overnight stop. We only ordered main courses and consequently were probably the only people not leaving with doggie boxes! The portions are large but quality is good and I enjoyed getting a 22 ounce draft to go with.

My in laws have been ranting and raving about this place since I met them, and now I finally was able to try it for myself. The food was stellar and our waitress went above and beyond the entire time. Good attitude, very knowledgable, and bubbly. I hate myself for not remembering her name, but I think it was Tami....either... More

We eat here on occasion, when our desire for a great steak outweighs our need for good service. The Joe's sirloin steak tastes like filet mignon, and the soups and baked beans are delicious! Unfortunately, the wait staff on most of our visits, have been inattentive and/or rude! Management doesn't seem to care about it either. It's sad, because the... More

We always can count on having a excellent meal at Tahoe Joes. We love the Calamari and the Railroad Camp shrimp appetizers. They serve wonderful sourdough rolls with their meals. The salads are always good. The Cheesecake is the best I have ever had. You can count on having great service also. I would suggest reservations as they can get... More

If you are ever in Bakersfield, this place is a must!. The restaurant was packed as it was a Saturday night, but still didn't have to wait long at all. Our Server Ryan, was very Good, and the food, was definitely worth the price, So I can highly recommend this place.

Love to go here after shopping at the Marketplace. I love the Railroad shrimp. I think it is the only thing I ever order here. It is always good and the service is top notch. It is always busy and I'm happy they are open for lunch!

Have eaten here twice this past year. The first time, the restaurant was packed but the wait was not too long. Waiting for our food was the longest part; no waitperson approached for over ten minutes and the food took forever - clearly the place had both service and kitchen issues on that busy day. On my recent visit, service... More

We all had steaks and different kinds, sirloin, filet and ribeye. They were cooked perfectly and were seasoned well. We had 3 appetizers and all were delicious. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive especially on this busy Friday night. Would recommend this restaurant for great dining.
