Old School pool, beer and laughs

Used to go here to play pool and have a few beers with college pals. Still the same. Plenty of pool tables in the back. Best pickled eggs in town and the Joe's Special sandwich (split Polish sausage, dill pickle spear, Swiss cheese between slices of rye) is still a favorite.

Limited but inexpensive menu, great beer choices, pool tables and a friendly clientele. What more could you ask for from a neighborhood dive type bar?

Really good atmosphere here. This bar has been around since 1924! If you are into a classic bar experience, Joe Jost's will hook you up. Ask Sean for the "Joe's special" and add a classic pickled egg. We thought it was one of the most American experiences we've had in California. Be sure to visit ;)

Joe Jost's is the best place to grab a beer. They have great bar snacks and the beer is always cold. Just remember to bring cash!

Great place to hang out while having a cold beer and shooting some pool. Family friendly atmosphere where the kids are welcomed. Great bar food for all including the kiddos. Jukebox and big screen TV's throughout. Don't leave without trying the Joe's Sandwich special and the ever infamous pickled eggs. You will want to take a jar home. Only draw... More

when visiting Daughter, or traveling through So Cal a must stop for a special sandwhich, pickled egg and a beer, or just for a tall cold one. A Long Beach tradition, a Noble Tradition and better be your new tradition, listen to daCoach

Do any traveling and run across a joe jost t-shirt they are most likely from long beach, ca. It more popular then the queen mary with locals here by a long shot. The place is a dive bar and its claim to fame is the pickled eggs along with a cold beer.

This never-changing beer/sandwich pub is a landmark Long Beach classic! I've been coming here since 1966, now 48 years, since I was at Long Beach State. Those that frequent this place are often ex-locals that have moved away, only to drop by when they are in town. Its a no-nonsense, never-changing and always-good menu, with numerous beer on tap and... More

Don't worry, you have not accidently found a 1930's movie set. If you have not been here since 1930 you will notice that NOTHING has changed. We have never been here anytime when it wqs not crowded, and difficult to find a place to sit. We like to order the Joe's Special Sandwich, a Pickled Egg and the delicious Root... More

Homey, simple, local, cozy....locals love it as well as tourists. Fun place. Actually really liked my "Joes special", a sausage sandwich...NOT a hot dog! Pickled eggs were fun. Beer cold. Crowd interesting. Great vibe! Go!
