Food is just average, but price a bit too much. Can't say much for the service at diner time because for a while there seemed to not be any.

My wife & I went to Joe's American Bar & Grill, Woburn, MA recently and found the atmosphere very pleasant. We ordered drinks and it took over 15 minutes to get them. This is not the first time that it has happened to us at this place, but we decided to give them a second chance. We were hungry and... More

My colleague and I went for a quick lunch. I had the clam chowder which was excellent. The service was superb. For lunch I had the tuna burger which was really good. Comes with sweet potato fries as well. My colleague had the French Dip. He thought it was good, but felt the beef slices could have been a bit... More

Nice place, menu needs some work to bring up the quality of the healthier choices, but they are willing to accomodate changes in the plating. Service was horrible. Very surly waitress who can use a personality of some sorts.

I have been a fan of "Joe's" for a number of years, especially their specials. They just re-did their menu. Really pared it down. I took two friends and wanted to 'show off' this restaurant. Surprise Surprise, No specials; No dinner specials, and the three entree's we ordered were nothing special either. I hope this ship rights itself.

I had the Chicken Pot Pie which looked great when delivered but found it to be more like a soup them a stew. The others in my party found their meals to be tasty but nothing out of the ordinary.

Our family went for an early dinner with an urge for burgers. The special BBQ burger was fantastic - the other two were cooked exactly to order and used fresh ingredients and were also very good.

I ate here with a colleague while traveling on business. We were staying at the adjacent Hampton Inn, so we received a 10% discount. Service was good, and the ambience is above average. I started with the crab cakes, which were tasty. I had the rib eye, which was nicely marbled and cooked the way I ordered it. My colleague's... More
