Oldest Bar Pool room in Long Beach

Never miss a chance to drop in (usually around lunch time) for a beer and a special (sausage sandwich) add pretzels and a pickled egg. Lots of locals.

If you want authentic Long Beach, stop by Joe Jost's. You won't get the best beer in the world, but it's cold and perfect for the environment. The price can't be beat and the food is great, especially if you don't wan't typical bar food. And don't forget to pick up a t-shirt -- you'll see people wearing them no... More

Joe's is TOPS! It is an ORIGINAL. I have been having a special, a schooner and a pickled egg at this classic bar for over 60 years.

Best bar in Southern California. Awesome atmosphere, friendly staff, great bar food, billiards, shuffle board, and the coldest beer around! There's no other place like it.

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?

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.

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
