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.

Food is fairly good not always consistent and not always served hot, a good place to watch a game and enjoy the company

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

Service was extremely slow. We waited 25 minutes to receive our drinks and another 30 minutes before anyone came back to take our dinner order. The food was mediocre at best. We wont be back.

I was so grateful, last winter, when they let Me use the restroom. My second visit, however, was a mistake. I could have sworn that the waitress said that the burger was on special. After what seemed like a long wait, the waitress presented Me with a BLT. She was so syrupy sweet about the whole thing, that I decided... More

Very crowded, because of Blueberry Festival, but they were not prepared. We ate on the top deck. Wait for drinks and food was rather long....when food came, we had to ask waitress for napkins and silverware, to which she replied "I can get you napkins, but we don't have silverware" Daughter used a French fry to spread mayo on sandwich,...

Music was great the singer would play his guitar and interact with the customers he was very friendly and he created a nice atmosphere with the good music and the great weather. The prices were affordable. We had a good time the food was good.
