Ok

Not my favorite place in town for sure. There is very little parking so you have to park down the block and walk to get there on busy nights. To me the food is average and its expensive for what you get. I will say it is set up real nice for watching sporting events and the service is good.

This is a fun bar/restaurant that has a menu to please all with serving sizes that won't disappoint. They have a rooftop open in the summer - but it was nice and warm for football over the holidays. Great draft selections and they offer many Michigan beers!

Stopped in for a quick cocktail - ordered the nachos. They were just OK. Sour cream tasted weird. Beers were very pricey for Michigan craft beer. Bathroom was cold. Water was freezing. I was here in the summer and had a better time. So next summer I'll come back. Stay turned.

My mom and I ate at Joe's this past weekend. We wanted a place to watch college football and have an early dinner. This used to be a garage - can still see the sliding doors that used to go up and down for cars. The accoustics are about what you'd think - it was rather loud and we had... More

One word to describe my experience here -- DREADFUL.... I'd rather stay home and eat PBJ than go here. 1st - the place is what it says. Joe's Bar.... nothing special at all. Cement floors, no atmosphere, tvs on the wall. Ok, it is what it is. It seems that all the help doesn't look old enough to be serving... More

Stopped in for a drink .. it's all cement floor and very few tables.. a lot of TV's for the games .. but it just felt like we were in someone's garage .. it was okay, i just wouldn't go back .. nothing special .. and then there is the garage thing.

We enjoyed drinks on a Saturday night and a live show by a local country artist. The service was pretty good too. This is a great place to watch live entertainment or football in the fall. They have a nice open area outside as well.

We have eaten at Joe's before and really liked it. But.... the second floor open dining area was closed because of a shortage of help. Evidently a waiter failed to show for work. We ate downstairs where there is no view and no atmosphere. The person who waited on us was obviously overwhelmed. Additional help showed up about the time... More
