Good Food, But Food Serving Delayed

Stopped for lunch on Sunday with a party of 6 plus 2 babies. There was a large party going on in the basement and we occupied the second table in the main dining room. Shortly afterwards, the main dining room also filled. It took more than an hour to receive our food, partly due to the length of... read more

Every time I eat here I wonder if they really want to run a restaurant or bar. The staff are all young and don't really "get it" - sometimes long waits to get a table and even longer for service. The food is average to above average, but given the atmosphere and service culture I have avoided it lately. Ok... More

Stopped in for a late lunch / early dinner. We ordered the fried chicken po-boy and the Caribbean burger. Restaurant was slow (off time). Meal took awhile to come, but it was worth the wait!!! Both sandwiches were superb!!! Burger was cooked to order and was cooked perfectly. It was so juicy that it was running off my hand onto... More

I have been here in the past to celebrate Mardi Gras when I can't be in New Orleans. The food is good, pretty authentic, but I find the price high. I would recommend, but consider it a place more for a special occasion than once a week type place.

The location on the main street of Plainfield (Lockport Street) makes this a wonderful spot to view special events and people watching. Drinks and appetizers are very good and moderately priced. If Cajun food js your thing, they have an amazing menu, although I'm not the person to ask about it. Of all the places offering a grandstand view of... More

Good place to go for some cajun style fixins. This place is as much bar as it is grill even though there is much room to eat. Be prepared to spend like you were in Naperville or Chicago vs. Plainfield. Good food, nice service, a bit pricey for the portions.

We stumbled upon Moe Joe's looking for something beside typical burgers on a Saturday afternoon - and had a great meal. We all picked Cajun-themed foods - which was a treat since we needed gluten-free and dairy-free allergy options (e.g., they grilled the alligator appetizer instead of deep-frying it). The teenage boys devoured the wild boar burgers. The rest of... More

Food and service was outstanding. The only negative is that they don't take reservations so the wait may be over an hour, but it's worth it.

We revisited Moe Joe's over the holiday season for drinks and were extremely disappointed. We sat at a table in the bar area. WE WERE COMPLETELY IGNORED! Although we tried, we could not gain the attention of the two female bartenders who were so self-absorbed, fully focused on flirting with their handful of male patrons seated at the bar. We... More

Service is extremely slow! Do not go here if you are in a hurry! Even if there is someone at the door to greet you or seat you (which usually there is not) you still wont see a waitress for a good 10 minutes after that! Try to have your entire order ready when someone does come! Food is ok,... More
