We stopped off in Braintree for a late evening dinner while traveling from Rhode Island to Boston. The exit had a variety of chain restaurants, but we were unfamiliar with Joe's American Grill. Based on its location next to a Cheesecake Factory, it appeared to be another massive chain, but it looks like it's only located in MA at this... More

I would probably not go back to this restaraunt food was ok but for 2 adults and a teenager the bill came to $90.00 with tip for lunch! Not to mention we sat there for a good 20 minutes before someone even took our drink order.People seated after us were being served before us. I think the waitstaff was confused... More

We were at the mall shopping and decided to eat here. I had a turkey burger with fries and really enjoyed it. I also had a nice salad with a house dressing which was great. The hot bread they served was delicious. The waitresses and staff in general were very friendly. My only complaint about this place was the bathroom.... More

I am not crazy about going to restaurants in a mall, but this was spacious enough that it didnt really seem like it was part of the mall. The food was good, but I thought pricey. We had a burger that was delicious and we split the Nachos. They were smothered in melted cheese, kind of reminded me of velveeta,... More

We were going to go to the Cheesecake Factory but saw this place next door and liked the menu offerings....we were not disappointed. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious! I had the meatloaf which is made from braised short ribs and has a BBQ type sauce on top...it was a large portion and delicious. The... More

We went to Joe's after leaving Cheesecake Factory which did not seat us within 30 minutes. We were seated immediately at Joe's. The waitress came to our table right away and we were eating within 15 minutes. Boy does that beat Cheesecake Factory! We had burgers and they were grilled to perfection. Overall, the service was perfect and the food... More

I don't know if there was just a staff shortage that day but the waitress serving me was rushed off her feet and didn't serve me as quickly as I would have liked. If I wasn't very hungry and wasn't dining on my own, it probably wouldn't have bothered me. The food was nice. I had steak tips and mashed... More

Great selection of American fare/pub grub. This time around we had Joe's burger, pasta and meatball, and chicken piccata. Never a complaint I bring friends here often. Great selection and service every time.

Dark & Stormy - incorrect ginger beer. Hopefully they locate this. Round Bread came out warm and was very tasty. If you eat here ask for the steamed mussels as starter you will not be disappointed. Spare ribs mouth watering. Other suggestions Mahi Mahi. Service from the twin was very good.

Often we sit at the bar, the service is always excellent and friendly. We have brought our grandson and had a good experince. The food is excellent. I often get the bufflo chicken and... More
