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.

Had take-out ribs, full rack-excellent. Sides not hot but warmed when we got home. Fries particularly cold.

I have never had a bad meal here. This is a really busy place and a busy bar with it looks like a young crowd. Family friendly. Has outdoor seating adjacent to the bar so looks like it is for bar crowd. They have a good selection and my meat has always been cooked as ordered and tender. Try the... More

The last five times I ate there, they always screwed up something, either forgetting a dish, bringing out the wrong item, etc The worst was when I took a group of 15 people there for our Christmas party and they lost one person's order---me, the one paying for the whole mess. I no longer go here, there are way better... More

The bar staff at tahoe joes is the best in town. Roxy, Megan, Stephanie, Rachel et al are great. The busier they get the better they are.
