Was a great place for a large business dinner, food quality was top notch providing a wide range of choices at reasonable prices. Handled a very large party very well. Recommend!

Always a good place to eat. Fun servers. Parking is hard to find since the lot is shared with neighboring hotels.

We had dinner here while staying at the Wyndham. I had the Mahi Mahi fish tacos. They were made with flour tortillas, which I have a personal distaste for and prefer corn tortillas, but beyond that, they had very little fish. They were accompanied by Tortilla chips that were just not up to snuff. My wife had a bowl of... More

I had their shrimp in butter and garlic and I only ate a few shrimp. They DID NOT clean their shrimp, the garlic was in slices and the butter was either watered down or the shrimp had been frozen. It was very noisy and you had to yell at your wait staff to place your order but the people seemed... More

We have been to this chain before, so we knew what to expect. The place is noisy, but it was a fun family atmosphere. Our server was friendly and prompt. The food is kind of typical chain seafood restaurant stuff, but we enjoyed it. There was nothing to dislike on the evening of our visit.

Yummy food, and the Honey Peach Smash is delicious! The playground allowed us to have some adult time while the kids played. We ate here twice in four days!

The food was average Joes but the dancing every 15 minutes kept kids entertained so adults can drink their yummy "shark bite" drink in peace :)

We arrived in LA late in the evening Christmas day, few restaurants were open. We arrived at Joe's twenty minutes before closing, the staff happily seated us, were prompt with service, kind and friendly. The food at Joe's was decent, not fine dining but pretty good. The atmosphere is great; good music to which the staff stop and dance. Towards... More

This was one of the most amazing meals I've ever eaten! I was very surprised that the food and service were so good. Not your typical chain-style restaurant service. There were eight of us and we all really enjoyed our food.
