I absolutely love this restaurant. I grew up in Marin and it was our family "Go-To" place. I still go whenever I get to Corte Madera. Spaghetti is fantastic. Love the Cheeseburger on French Bread Roll. Zabaliogne is to die for......

My husband and I have been eating at this restaurant for over 50 years. We no longer live in Marin but we eat here whenever we visit. The food is outstanding and the service is wonderful. The atmosphere is very nice---very "old Marin"---most customers are locals who have been eating here for years. Be sure to visit if you come... More

We often stop at Marin Joe's for a late dinner. Usually, we sit at the counter facing the cooks. It's a nice show. The menu doesn't change often, but offers an excellent selection. There are daily specials, usually fish. Service is courteous and, usually, very efficient. It's great fun to order a Caesar salad make at the table. The fish... More

Local, friendly good Italian food! Best rack of Lamb and Prime Rib around, not to mention the Calamari Dore and it goes on and on. Ralph and Paul, the son's of Romano the owner are friendly and they are like family. I have been going to Joes for over 40 years and my kids are now eating there. 3rd Generation!... More

Over the years of visiting family in Marin County, I have often dined at family's request and convenience at Marin Joe's. For as long as I remember, this place is always packed even though the food and service is at best average. This most recent visit was no exception ,Our server talked a much better game than he played--the food... More

Marin Joe's has been around at same location for more than 50 years. "Joe's" restaurants are a sort of S.F. Bay Area trademark or icon, but are NOT a chain. Individual "Joe's" serve similar menus and the traditional "Joe's Special" (hanburger, onions, spinach and eggs scrambled together), but each place is different-some good, some better, some so-so. Marin Joe's definitely... More

Good food, fast and efficient service from another era. Reminds me of the places I went to when I was a kid. Nice burger, steaks and chops and pasta sauces from old school Italian joints. Don't look for extensive wine lists, but you will get good honest cocktails. Don't look for a pretentious server trying to make it in an... More

After passing the restaurant numerous times and seeing a lot of cars parked in front and around the place, we decided to try Marin Joe's for lunch today. Get there early like 11:45 if you want a parking space and a seat. They do offer valet parking though. When entering the restaurant, they have two dining areas, the dark bar... More
