We ate here out of convenience since it was by the Marriott we were staying at. We were tired & didn't feel like getting into traffic to hunt down any of the places that were recommended to us. Food was okay. We received our side salads right away. But it took an hour later to get our meal. Not sure... More

Location: Nice on the waterfront and Columbus park, so traffic is a bit away and it is quiet sitting outside. It was almost 9 o'clock when I got there, so there was not much of a wait. It got a bit dark as outside as there is not much light if you are not closed to the building. Food: I... More

Rocked up on a Friday night without a booking; place very full but the staff on reception quickly organised a good table. Service was quick, efficient and friendly, food was very good. Great night, would come back again, and book ahead next time!

Despite the fact that this restaurant was packed to the gills and moving a mile a minute - and at top volume! - our experience was very, very good. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time and the host was very gracious. Our server was attentive and friendly. Our food came out very fast and was delicious.... More

The good: The lobster roll was nice, enjoyed the view from the outside patio, clam chowder was also pretty solid. The not so good: long wait for a table, reception desk was cold, waitress was average, all tables around us got bread but us, the food my buddy ordered came out very salty and after just a couple of bites...

We were staying at the Fairmont Battery Wharf and went looking for someplace to have lunch on a rainy 4th of July. Since it was a) raining, b) a relatively short walk from the hotel, and c) we were hungry, we stopped at the first place we came to which happened to be Joe's American Bar and Grill. It turned...

Great outdoor seating area with a nice view. Service was great. Food was average. Surprised that the prices were that cheap especially on the waterfront. Ordered the Joe's burger. Great burger, not so great bun it came on. Which surprised me since the bread BEFORE the meal is OUTSTANDING!! I was hoping they would put the burger on that bread!!... More

My boyfriend and I came here for a late lunch on our first day in Boston, July 1. Joe's is on the waterfront by Columbus Park and by Marriott Long Wharf. We saw it out the window of our room and decided to try it since it was close, and we could sit outside. Service was patchy, to say the... More

We were seated right away which was great after walking around the city for 2 hours. Our server talked so quiet that I could barely hear what she was saying, and it's not like the place was packed. Our drinks came right away which was nice. We ordered the fish tacos and a side of fries. The fish tacos we... More
