Very Very Super Good Steakhouse !

Tahoe Joe's is just a great place! This Steakhouse is very consistent as far as the food is concerned. I love the ribs and the Salmon oh and the Pork Chops are another choice of my wife and myself - (as we split meals a lot of times) I haven't had a terrible meal there ever and we have been... read more

No reservations, no seating until all your group arrive. Then I got poor service at the table and my steak was way over cooked.

Had dinner with my daughter and her family. Ordered the twin filet and a ceaser salad. Was disapointed with the salad but the filets were ok. Not the worst and not the best. The prices were a bit over the top for the food quality

We are visiting Bakersfield and were looking for somewhere to celebrate my husband's birthday. He decided on Tahoe Joe's after reading the reviews. We were definitely not disappointed. We loved the decor and everything was delicious! The steak was so tender and had an amazing flavor. The service was superb! He was even given a free slice of cake for... More

Called to see if they take reservations, no but they took our name and put us on the waiting list in advance so our wait time was only about 20 minutes. Nice bar, great atmosphere and excellent steak. My husband and I both ordered the NY steak and it was done perfectly. We'll definitely go back when traveling through Bakersfield.

This was a birthday dinner for my adult daughter who chose Tahoe Joe's. Service was much better than average the entire night. The food was delivered exactly as it was ordered. I had the 18 oz. Ribeye Steak which was very flavorful, just not quite the flavor I desired. Rather than the natural flavors of the meat, I mostly tasted... More

Great food service and ambiance ... as with the other Tahoe Joes that I have visited! I invited old friends out to dinner and made the reservation at Tahoe Joe's as I had visited two cities that had the chain stores. We were warmly greeted, promptly seated and the food and service were OUTSTANDING as usual!

I went there for dinner last year, but I wish that I had ordered a steak, rather than the ribs. The ribs were ok, but my grandson ordered the steak, and I wish that I had. Oh well, we all make mistakes sometimes.

there is no place that has better steaks, snacks, salads or drinks, always very busy but worth any wait time you have to put in. and parking usually is hard to fined.

I have not been here in quite some time. Made a visit for a special occasion. Had the Joe's special - pretty good, my other two in the party both had salads. Had the RR Camp shrimp for an appetizer. That was pretty good too. The service was the standout. Our server was very attentive, but not overly so. She... More
