good food and atmosphere

Place had great food and even gluten free options. The appetizers were great and our dinner was good too. There was a little lag between courses but nothing crazy.

We moved to Plainfield about 2 years ago and we're just starting to expand and try some of the restaurants in the area. My wife and I love Cajun food and we used to eat at the Stand in Lemont ask the time. After eating here tonight, we've finally found a favorite restaurant. We decided to eat downstairs since the...

Great food, great atmosphere, terrible service. If you want a place with prompt service, or service at all, choose a different restaurant. We had to notify management that we needed drinks after waiting 20-25 minutes. We also did not receive silverware or napkins well into the meal. Very uncoordinated and not do helpful staff.

Had the alligator appetizer with an excellent dipping sauce - very good. The gumbo was very tasty with a great kick and very plentiful. Corn bread with cinnamon butter was a nice touch. Even if you are not a big cajun food fan, you will find something you will like on the unique menu. Glad to see this type of... More

This place is one of our favorites. We've been here for lunch with the kids, for dinner with famly and friends and for date night for a few drinks. Moe Joe's never disappoints. I highly recommend the gator bites appetizer and the steak skewers (not on the regular menu but SO good). Wings are really tasty too, and I am... More

I just love this place. Last time we sat in the cozy secret booth in the back and it took me to my favorite town New Orleans. We travel to NOLA about once a year, for the food and music, but this place is A plus for bring NOLA to Plainfield. A great, lively bar and a cozy fun small... More

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 mandatory cooking... 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
