Go there. You won't be disappointed.

It's my first time visiting Boston and I've been here for three days. I've eaten tons of fish and delish food, but to be brutally honest, I was craving something fatty and delicious. I read the mixed reviews about Joe's and felt a little unsure, then saw the picture someone posted of the chicken... read more

We found Joe's during our last Boston trip and returned last night. Great atmosphere, food and service but what truly sets Joe's apart is how seriously and sensitively they address food allergy concerns. As the parent of a daughter that is severely allergic to peanuts and tree nuts, it is reassuring when a restaurant like Joe's takes the time to... More

I was staying at the small inn at the end of the wharf and thought that this might be part of a "cookie cutter" type chain restaurant so I thought I would just stop for a drink. It turns out that it is part of a chain but has a very "one of" feeling. Eric the bartender was great!! He... More

Great lobster rolls. Fun bar. Lunch, dinner or happy hour - yuo cannot go wrong. Fantastic location - on the waterfront, near the aquarium and very close to Fanuel Hall, next to the North End. Always a very good time - great bartenders, too.

Stopped here for a meal before a visit to the comedy club. This would be a great place to dine in the summer. We had a great waitress and the food was cooked to perfection. None of us had eaten here before and we would all try it again.

Went with the family to the Woburn location. We just wanted a quick bite to eat. I ordered a burger, my wife got the Rueben, my daughter a ceasar salad and my littlest, a hot dog. My burger was fine, not too hard to mess that up, but my wife said it tasted liked they cooked the Rueben a while... More

After a scavengers hunt we went to eat lunch at Joe's. Atmosphere was chilly, a lot of families and couples. The view was amazing and the food was great. I ordered Joe's burger with sweet potatos. I can still feel the taste! The ultimate lunch.

We had lunch here on our last trip so decided to go back again and we were not disappointed. My husband had the lobster roll and i had the chicken club sandwich. We were serviced by Michelle who was great from the minute we walked in. She always had a smile on her face. Great views too. We would definitely... More

We were hungry and we were too tired to continue walking into the North End, so we stopped here for lunch. The wait was short, and the staff was friendly and attentive. The beer was cold and service was prompt. My husband ordered the house salad with the house lemon-garlic vinegraitte, and the chicken with ziti and broccoli. His salad... More
