Nice Experience

We enjoyed Tahoe Joes on two different occasions last month. Both times delivered a nice meal, good customer service and an enjoyable atmosphere.

Went to dinner with another couple on a Saturday night. Service was good. Margaritas were very good. My wife had the twin fillets and they were cooked perfectly. The baby greens salad is really good. I had the ribs & railroad shrimp. The ribs were decent but I do not recommend the shrimp - crust was hard and very little... More

Tahoe joes menu is very diversified and it has a 20 ounce, no bone, ribeye steak that is very good and man size big. I have had several of them and haven't had a bad one yet! They also make a great Cadillac Marguerita!

This is a very good place to go for a good steak. I enjoy the calamari steak dinner and their greenbeans a very good. Always get good service here. They have nice salads here also.

It's a reliable place for lunch. Good menu ok prices. If you are on a lunch break or want separate tickets, tell them when you are ordering. They are getting slammed with the overflow for another newly opened restaurant (more than usual) in the same center. Bar is good patio has heaters.

My husband and I decided to go to Tahoe Joe's as it's a favorite for a special Valentine's Day meal. We went early which worked out great - no long lines. We had a wonderful waitress McKay very friendly and started off with two appetizers the "Railroad Camp Shrimp" and the "Seared Ahi Tuna" both were fantastic! Next we had... More

We've come here a few times and this visit was a nice one! I've always loved the ambiance inside Tahoe Joe's, gotta love that snow cabin feel! They have really good food. I had the cabin combo, steak & chicken with veggies and a baked potato. Always a good choice! Anything steak at Tahoe Joe's is a good choice! This... More

I have tried most of the menu items and have not been disappointed on anything. Their Joe's steak is an aged Sirloin, very tender and great flavor. It happens to be something you don't get at most other steak houses and is my favorite.

We love their Joe's steaks. Aged sirloin - very tender and flavorful. The only steak in a restaurant we can't seem to get enough. Their railroad shrimp and cheesecake are to die for as well.

I really enjoy this chain. I hadn't been to this one yet so I gave it a try and wasn't disappointed. The service was very good and so was the food. I'll be coming back. My only complaint would be that the music was a bit loud.
