We enjoyed our BBQ lunch in the outside seating on a beautiful sunny day. Live music too. A lot of food for a great price. BBQ entree, baked beans and corn on the cob. Would go back.

My husband and I had supper at Jo'an's on Friday night. There was a live band and the place was crowded. The band was pretty good and played mostly folk music. The food was a bit expensive and the service was kind of slow. The server did not ask us how we wanted our steaks cooked and mine was overcooked.... More

The pork chops with gravy and stuffing were very fine. My beer was in a bottle and the check didn't take more than I expected. The live music was from the sixties and the free style dancing on the dance floor matched. The bearded mountain men and bikers, hippies and tourists all enjoyed themselves in a the mixing pot that...

The menu at Jo'an's offers something for everyone and the service is fantastic. Our server, Terese, even invited us to drop by the next day to enjoy an outdoor bbq the restaurant would be hosting. The food was delicious - my husband had a buffalo burger for the first time and enjoyed it very much. The sides and fixings were... More

This is one of the slowest places!!! The restaurant was slow at the time yet it took quite some time to receive our lunch. We had to ask for silverware. The waitress had some attitude. The food was so so. This is the only place so far on the trip we would NOT recommend.

The central location and tables outside looked nice. My salad was mediocre and the time it took to get served was disappointing on a nearly empty afternoon.

I understand, it was bought by new owners? BUT - the same burned food, much needed renovation .. There is no reason to go there, because you have better options 5 seconds away. I went there, because my daughter decided, to try it. OK, we tried .. Nothing good to report back.
