A Riverside Hang Out

I’ve been going here for years. As soon as you walk in the chef’s begin to scream something, a welcome, and you feel right at home. There is always a line and the place is packed. Just eat the AYCE special as it will allow you to sample everything they make. I have never had one bad experience... read more

I had heard many years ago that this place had excellent sushi. Tonight my son and I tried it out. They have AYCE dinner for $23.95. I tried 3 rolls, two of which were the fried kind which I usually enjoy. However, these were so hard and crunchy that it was difficult to enjoy them. The other roll was pretty... More

The food is amazing, the All U Can Eat Sushi was excellent, the atmosphere was loud not only with people but loud top 10 music. It was like being at a disco. I don't think that our family will be returning unless someone asks for it as a special occasion. I could not enjoy the food because I wanted to... More

Joe's seems like it has been here forever. And you can see why. We visited again for lunch. As always, the service was prompt and friendly. We were offered the "all you can eat sushi" special, but seriously folks, two of their lunch boxes were all we could devour. We are stuffed! We enjoyed two very substantial lunches of tempura,...

Have been a regular here for more than 10 years and the place had not changed that much but the service and sushi gets better and better. When one of my son's was born in a hospital nearby, my wife and I went straight to Joe's along with our newborn. Fish here is always fresh. This place is always packed... More

No, it's not a fancy place. The parking lot is unpaved gravel and the interior is plastered with old photos of happy customers and friends. But that tells you something. It's a comfortable, friendly place with very good food and a good value. We paid about 10 bucks each for our lunch. Everything was tasty and very well prepared. Friendly... More

Since Edmund took over as Manager he has really turned this place around. The rice to fish ratio on their sushi is great. You get a small ball of rice and a nice large cut of fish. The place is always crowded but be patient it is worth it. With the crowds comes constant turn over of the fish always... More

Love this place. Great food & great service for an awesome value! Can't go wrong with all-you-can-eat sushi. If you like to try new things, get the chef special, everyone is different. Always go here to get our fix when we are in town!

Hi, last week we took our mother in law along with our 2 children to this place. Had a long wait although we got there way early for dinner. We had to wait 45 minutes before we got seated. There is not enough waiting area inside so we had to wait outside. We finally got seated and ordered our food... More
