Great Location and Good Old-Fashioned American Cuisine

Went here for dinner on the first night we were in Boston and we weren't disappointed. Lovely typical American food, nice friendly staff and reasonable prices. Excellent location on the harbour front and nice views from your table.

We were stranded in Boston due to a fault with our plane (there are worse places to be stranded!) and took a water taxi over to the harbour. We stumbled across Joe's which was slightly off the tourist traps of Faneuil Hall/ Quincy Market and the setting was just beautiful. We took a seat outside on the waterfront and opposite... More

Food was so-so, but the outdoors seating is nice and away from the city noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would possibly go again for a quick meal, but didn't love it.

We've been to this restaurant at least 4 times over the past few years. A couple years ago with a big group celebration, last Fall upstairs for a pre wedding event, a girls night stop for drinks and just recently with the husband. I wanted to give it a better food review but just can't. We had walked all day... More

This place has a beautiful setting right on Boston's waterfront. The food and service were excellent. It gets very busy after 5 pm when the office crowd hits the streets. The bread was delicious and the service was tops.

Fish tacos were really good. Pretty decent quality for a chain restaurant. Good service. They accommodated a group of 8 on a fairly busy summer day without a problem.

We were there for a private function and had the room upstairs. Excellent location overlooking the marina and near the Aquarium. The downstairs retail part of the restaurant has outdoor seating and great menu. For our function, the service was friendly and excellent. Food was outstanding. The shell steak was one of the best I've had and the roasted chicken... More

Although a little crowded ( we went on a Friday evening, without a reservation ) we immediately got a table for 7, and were soon tucking into our nice food and drinks. The 4 children were served up first, which is always a plus ! Service is fast, which is good as this is a very popular place, and the... More

Typical near the water place. Can get view of some harbor.docks. Good food. Great salad: kale and quinoa! Staff was very helpful. Service was reasonably quick. They do not seem to have problems with crowds. Appears quite popular.
