Delicious Food and Great Service

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... read 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.

I enjoyed walking around the town circle and everytime we would come out of one shop to another, we would hear the loud music coming from "JoAnn's". They played a variety of music and we loved it!!

Eating outside in front of the stage and live band is fun and comfortable. Even inside you can see all the happenings outside from the bar. Excellent sandwiches, one of the best melt in your mouth, Chicken Tenders I ever had and fresh country salads

My husband and I showed up at 7:30-8pm for dinner, Friday march 13. A band was playing, the place was packed! And yet only 2 women were waiting tables and bartending all at once! The food was great and I'm still amazed how well the waitresses handled all the customers! They worked their butts off! Crowd was having a great... More
