Warm champagne is not very good

We went there to celebrate a birthday, so I ordered champagne. After the glasses were all poured we noticed that it was at a warm room temperature and not chilled. The waiter only offered to chill the rest of the bottle which he did. Needless to say, I feel that I wasted my money on what I... read more

We visited to hear the band that was playing...Rip It Up band, and they were great. The bar was crowded and hopping and the service by the bartenders....even in a busy bar was great.

We (eight of us) were so looking forward to a good meal on our last night in cape cod. Initially the waiter was efficient in taking our orders. The food was adequate and the atmosphere festive. However things changed as we were served our meals. The waiter seemed to completely forget who got what. Entrees needed to be returned. The... More

Convenient and festive...fun and the place makes you feel like you are somewhere...for sure...the food is mediocre. But, fine. They could do better with the glasses of wine being less than half full and the cliquey vibe with the owners walking around hugging and kissing is a little awkward and inappropriate. Other than that, it is fine. We always go...we... More

Huge menu, which makes me worry sometimes that a place draws customers by selection rather than execution. We ordered the lobster mac n cheese for an appetizer and it was outstanding, creamy and flavorful cheese sauce with big chunks of lobster. For the entree I chose the Scallop Nicoise, which was a preparation I had never encountered before - should've... More

This is excellent food. Don't be fooled by cape shack appearance. Wonderful menu perfectly executed. Gluten free items in abundance. Ample and reasonably priced kids menu. Service was unbelievable. Make the trip to Orleans!

Well over 90% of these glowing 5 star reviews that Joe's is receiving lately have been written by people who have contributed exactly ONE Trip Advisor review. Somehow the truly incredible dining experience compelled them all to hit the keyboard for the first time to alert everyone to what they have been missing. I am skeptical. At both the volume... More

Whenever my family travels to Orleans, we go to Joes. We love it there, the food is always fantastic. A favorite dish of ours was the calamari. The kids love it! The atmosphere was family friendly, and our waitress was fantastic. The kids are usually very picky, and our waitress, Meghan, convinced them to abandon their usual hot dog and... More

This was my first time on the Cape with my husband and our two kids - they're often very picky with food and can get a bit out of control when we go out to eat... BUT either there's something in the water at Joe's or their food and service is just that good. They were completely immersed in the... More

Every time I'm in Orleans I make certain to go to Joe's - the food is terrific, as is the service. Want to mention MeghanM who was such a delight and so knowledgeable about the menu on my last visit. Can't wait to go back
