Night at the mall

A nice restaurant inside the mall. Clean, busy and somewhat noisy. It was supper time, so that should be expected. We were seated right away. The hostess was nice and our server (Jack) was attentive. We ordered 2 Ceaser Salads, good but a little heavy on the dressing. And 2 Seafood Stews, they were... read more

There was a long wait at Cheesecake Factory, so we stopped in at Joe's American Bar & Grill, and were very happy we did. The food and service was excellent. It was one member of our parties birthday. We were given a slice of chocolate cake big enough for the four of us, on the house. We had a leisurely... More

First time at this Joes but have dined at many restaurants run by this group. In spite of management change, still sharp as a tack. Much less wait than the over-rated "Factory" next door. I had the fish sandwich - - I swear that fish was swimming in the atlantic less than 24 hours before I sank my teeth into... More

6 of us for dinner. Made a reservation , so even though it was crowded , didn't have to wait. Hostess very friendly . I think they are understaffed because it took a long time to put in a drink order and then for our food order as well. Food ok, except my husbands meatloaf fantastic.

The seafood stew was really good. Lots of mussels, shrimp, scallops and whitefish, topped with a small lobster tail. The sauce had a bit of a bite, but rich in flavor and depth. Our server could have been a tad more focused on getting our requests accurate, however it was extremely busy and who knows what her day had been... More

Had never been to Braintree location, but we stopped in on our way up to Boston to avoid the Boston crowds. Although it was the weekend so this place was pretty busy, but we were seated immediately. Friends and I all liked our food. Been there before, will most likely come here again.

The food and service is great but a little expensive. I DO NOT LIKE GOING THERE. It reminds me of an upscale cafertia! The more they can fit in there the happier they are. If you sit at a round table of 5-6 you WILL NOT be able to hear the conversation at your table. So if that does not... More

We had a two beers and a small carafe of wine with buffalo tenders, and two sandwiches. Barely came under $100 with tip. The food was tasty but had very little meat on each sandwich. The waiter informed us it was actually weighed. I suggested that they stop weighing the meat and just fill up the sandwich in the future... More
