My wife and I had dinner here with friends. I ordered the prime rib. It was cooked properly. Service was good. The meat was of average flavor. My wife tasted it and said it was okay. For the price I had hoped for a better grade, but there was nothing wring with the meal.

Recently we celebrated at Tahoe Joe's Steak House. It was the best Steak we have ever had. Not only is the food outstanding, it is prepared with hands of a professional, but it is also served hot. The Servers are warm and caring, and take very good care of your needs..

We had a nice lunch here on Black Friday. I was very surprised this place wasn't packed -- it usually is for lunch especially on a Friday. We had the Railroad Shrimp. It is always good. Served fresh with loads of lettuce. The portion is HUGE. 18 shrimp on the app. We also had the skillet apple pie. Not so... More

Have been here a few times and have always had great service. We always sit in the bar area. From appetizers to BBQ to steaks, everything has been good. The restaurant is clean and does seem to get crowded at night, even during the week. Overall, it's a place worth dining at.

Ate here last night for the first time. First things first, we had excellent service before and during the meal. We were seated right away on a Saturday night with no problem. Everyone ordered steak, definitely liked the wood fired taste, all of the sides and salad were good as well. Will return if in the area again.

Tahoe Joes has a great happy hour from 11:00 AM to 6:00 pm daily. The steak sliders were tasty and a good value for 3.99. As were the loaded nachos. The cheeseburger was Not. It was a formed frozen patty which would definitely rank well below Any fast food restaurant and very disappointing for a steak house.
