Good place for large family groups, but tends to be a little expensive and crowded. Fish was not great so be sure to order steak or other items

Went for dinner on a Saturday night, the restaurant was not crowded, but the service was slow. We ordered wine to start and ahi tuna as an apetizer, the wine arrived after we half finished the tuna, terrible, it tasted like it was just defrosted before serving. I ordered clam chowder, another fiasco, lumpy and flavorless, it seems like they... More

I have been to the restaurant many times and always leave happy. On our last visit we were with a large group and they were very accommodating. I was at the end of the line and found my meal to be cold, things happen. The waiter stopped by to check and I asked him to simply remove it from the... More

It just might be true, over eating may be an epidemic in America and this restaurant contributes to the problem! We each had steak (what else do you have in a steak house) which were tasty enough but they really need to consider some smaller cuts for those of us who don't eat for 2 or 12. Not sure we... More

Solid performance from this restaurant. Good Food, Good Service, Good Atmosphere, Good Drinks, Friendly. Been here a bunch and will keep going. Best Baked Chicken, you won't know until you've tried. Save room for Dessert, they make their own

Eight of us went to Tahoe Joe’s for dinner last night. Our server, Kinsey, was quick, efficient and very personable. The appetizers we ordered (nachos, fried onions, and calamari) were very good. As for me, most of my dinner was average but my “Tahoe Joe’s” steak was full of gristle and lacked any real flavor. When I asked the rest... More

Dinner last night was as expected. We each ordered the special, a plate with 2 4 1/2 oz. rib eyes, potato, salad and we had coupon for a free appetizer. The appetizer we ordered was the railroad camp shrimp. Not as good as in the past but still tasty. The entrees were also good and more than either of us... More

Food good, service good. Nothing fancy; a very rustic setting. But a nice place for an easy meal. Good place for families, particularly on the weekend.
