Visited the restaurant with my girlfriends last night. On the plus side, the location has a wonderful view of the harbor and a short walk to Faneuil Hall. We were quite a demanding group and our waiter rolled with the punches, so that was great. We also tried a variety of cocktails- everyone was happy with what they ordered. Those... More

We went to Joe's to have dinner outside by the harbor. The food was ok, but nothing outstanding. If you want to go for the charm and the ambiance, it was really nice. Sitting outside was a treat and we opted to wait for a table on the dockside of the restaurant. Boston is a lovely city and the wait... More

Every time we visit Boston, we make a point of stopping by at Joe's for lunch or dinner. Food and drinks are consistently good - very good clam chowder, crab cakes, fish and chips, and salads - overlooking the harbor with sea breezes. . . .

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...
