Pleasant stop on the waterfront

Good stop on the waterfront Lots of outside tables to watch the ferry cone or people watch. We had a few beers and apps having had a large breakfast. Pleasant staff eager to please. Even though it was a beautiful Sunday in the city the seating is ample enough that the wait isn't long. Wait for... read more

The food was outstanding. The bread they serve is amazing. Really enjoyed you had the option to sit in or outside and even those inside can see the harbor. The restaurant was a bit noisy so it was difficult sometimes to hear our party. Very kid friendly and a good alternative to the seafood and Italian restaurants. The kids liked... More

We go to Joe's every time we are in Boston. Love the lobster roll, and salad with lobster.....catch my drift? We are in land-locked Las Vegas, so I come for the water views and the Lob-stah! Prices are just okay, not cheap-but food and service are always really good. Wait times can be 20-25 minutes on holidays. Make sure if... More

Nice outside dining area on deck overlooking the harbour. Good choices and portion sizes and food was well cooked, although wasn't overly hot. Prices were fair. Would visit again.

Booked a table Thursday night and was packed to the brim with what times of 30 minutes. Food generous and fast. Verge burger with sweet potato chips and Waldorf salad was tasty and filling. Local beers rebel IPA, Sam Aadams and Summer larger all good. Large clam chowder came in huge bread bun and was filling and creamy.

Decent food and a great water view. Salads, burgers, -- typical lunch fare but done well. Service is speedy and friendly. The water view makes it a great place to stop an have a bite

Went for early evening drinks and was relieved that we weren't planning on dining here. Our server was downright rude, to the extent we wondered if there was an anti British thing going on? As we paid the bill he asked if he could keep the change. A request to the manger; please train your staff and make sure they... More

We stopped in for dinner at Joe's upon arriving in Boston. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and although it was quite crowded, we were seated very quickly. The location on Newbury has a constant stream of people coming and going. Our server, Sydney, was very friendly and attentive. The Cobb salad, Honey chicken salad, quesadillas and buffalo chicken wrap... More

Function--wedding shower. Room was set up correctly. Staff very efficient and helpful, lots of them. Mimosas served correctly. Chowder delicious. Orders taken in a timely manner. Meal served all together. Wine not served until requested, even though it had been pre-ordered. Desserts a disappointment. Lovely view, tho room is boring.

There are so many choices in Boston for dinning but I always try to head back to Joe's at least once during my visits. On this lunch visit I started with the tuna tartare and it was AMAZING - so fresh and so good, this was worth the trip alone. I also LOVE their sweet potato fries. Nice menu, options... More
