Amazing food with a perfect play area for kids

My husband, kids, and I enjoy going to Joe's almost every time we go to Utah. The food and drinks there are always really good and the staff has never been disappointing. Would recommend!!

Food was good, but it was offset by the service. It took Ryan at least 10 minutes to bring us a beer. Then I felt rushed by him because he came back soon after we got our meals to see if we needed boxes and asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. He back shortly thereafter to see... More

My husband and son always order the Samuel Adams steam pots 2 each & 2 orders of the clams. Nothing goes to waste. You get crab, corn, a couple of red potatoes, andouille sausage & corn on the cob. Nothing goes to waste. I am a vegetarian but I found I love the crab nachos minus the crab. I always... More

Really fun place for two people on vacation. Our waitress, Bailey, was super. The big shark and other decorations were a hoot, but the best thing of all was the lengthy dance all the waitstaff did on the perimeter of the large dining area. I had mango shrimp, which was very good. I enjoyed the whole experience, including the throwback... More

We went with our kids and got WAY too much food. So unless you're a big eater, consider sharing. With that said, everything was really delicious. My husband did get a sampler platter with mostly fried foods--it was great, but you get kind of burned out on fried foods fast (couldn't consider something fried for lunch the next day after...

Ate lunch at Joe's to celebrate an event. There were only a few other people in the restaurant, and yet our service was slow. The calamari sampler was good, but there were not enough chips brought with the crab dip. The coconut shrimp was very good. It came with a small paper container of cole slaw and side of french...

I was in town for the RV Show (we had a booth at the show) decided to "Eat at Joe's" ...and I am very glad I did! I sat at the bar to avoid a wait as the place was pretty busy, which is a good sign in my book. I was greeted and served by Julie, who was AWESOME!... More

My family ate here after a day of school shopping for my son in Salt Lake City. Our food was delicious as always. Our server was very friendly however a little "hoversome". We felt like we couldn't enjoy our conversation because she was constantly at our table.

Went on a Friday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was mediocre and the restaurant was loud and not very clean. The waitress was great, but the whole atmosphere of the place was off. Not appealing at all. I don't think we will ever go back.

After eating at this restaurant many times my son asked to eat here for his birthday dinner. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. They even did everything possible to make sure that my son had the most amazing birthday ever. Having a place for them to play in while we waited for dinner was a huge plus.... More
