Great food!

We had lunch there twice recently. The food was delicious, especially the Alaska halibut special. The BBQ chicken salad was great and huge (enough to share). The desserts were wonderful also. Service was very friendly but could have been more attentive; I had to go looking for our server.

Ate with family. Ordered steaks and cesar salads. The fish smell was powerful but we tried it anyway. Our mouths tasted like old fish. We asked the waitress to change out the salads. She brought us five more again smelling of fish. Manager watched didnt intervene or apologize. Will not return.

We had lunch at this eatery couple of times while shopping at Vacaville outlet. We tried Ponderosa Sirloin, Bacon Wrapped Bourbon Shrimp and Sierra Mountain Ribs. They all tasted very good. Sourdough bread was fresh. Service was good too. Food portion was perfect. Highly recommend this eatery. P.S: for Ponderosa Sirloin, you can substitute French fries with salad

We really enjoy the steak at Tahoe Joe's and the service was very agreeable. However, for a casual eatery the prices are quite high.

I am staying in Vacaville for work two nights a week & stopped looking for a beer, steak and a ballgame. The steak was good not great but the atmosphere helped make up for it.

Been there a couple of times, always dissapointed. A little overpriced. There are better steak places around that I would rather go to.

The patio area a nice place to sit, however, there was a table with left over food on it the whole time we were there. Not appealing. Our food choices from... More
