Went there for happy hour with friends after a long absence. Place is much improved in our opinion. Nibbles tasty, beer cold, wine glasses sparkling, excellent service. All good.

This is one of my "Go To" places in my hometown. The food is consistently good and the portions more the fair especially at lunch. I would have given them 5 stars but the one drawback is the noise level. Even if the place is only half full the acoustics are horrible it's so loud you have to almost yell... More

Different than most steakhouses. These steaks are smoked for several hours. So if you prefer your steaks rare, this is not the place for you. I asked for medium rare and they said it probably wasn't possible. So I asked for them to give me the most rare piece they could and that worked out fine. Tender and juicy!

Without a doubt, the steaks are good. The rest of the menu is not. The prices are too steep given the atmosphere, service and quality of the food. I am happy to spend $150 on a dinner for three, but I expect to be at least a bit impressed by the food and not feel ripped off. Unfortunately, at Tahoe... More

The sides were passable. Adding bacon to everything makes it so I guess. Sorry vegetarians, the pasta is an inedible mush. The portion is big, which just means it's alot of bad food. Drinks are also expensive and they need a better beer selection on tap. Good atmosphere and a nice outdoor patio.

We went for a late lunch after some Black Friday shopping. We were seated right away. Our server took our drink order and gave us a bread basket. My husband's chicken pot pie soup came out soon after. It was deliciously creamy. His order of Emerald Bay Trio (scallops, jumbo shrimp, and bacon-wrapped filet-$28.99) followed soon after. He was almost... More

Popular in Vacaville for good reason. Great value, located in Premium Outlet Mall area, good drinks and fantastic steaks at reasonable prices. Very friendly wait staff and front desk. Don't leave town without visiting this place.

As usual, the petite filet was fantastic. The railroad camp shrimp was as good as it always is, and we all liked the nachos. But my favorite was the amazing cheesecake-really well done! This is an ideal place for kids-they give kids Etch-a-Sketches to play with while you're waiting. Fun, outdoorsy decor

There are not too many nice places in Vacaville to eat dinner. Tahoe Joe's has a nice atmosphere and is quiet. It is a little pricey but great food!
