Food & Service More Than Adequate

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... read 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

This establishment has been in town for a few years , and I never had eaten there until recently. It might be listed as a "Famous Steakhouse", but they serve a lot more than just steak. I went with a group of co-workers during lunch time, and boy were they busy. Everyone in our party ordered something different, and had... More

It's a popular place here in town so we gave it a try. We even went back two other times. It's just not as good as other local steak houses. Their menu could be revamped a little and that would help. Not everyone wants pepper on everything. Good old fashioned steak (tender please - mine wasn't on any of our... More

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!
