Yes, it's a small, somewhat dated bar. Yes, their pizza is different, and like some other reviewers I'm a big fan of New York pizza, and have been struggling to find decent pizza in our area in the 30 years we've lived here. That said, we really enjoyed our experience at Joe's. While the crust was thinner than we would... More

Not in the best part of Baltimore. Def a dive. Food was ok. Service was ok. Service was the bartender getting to you when she could. It wasn't a busy time so it wasn't too bad. It was freezing in the restaurant. Never got to take off my coat. I ordered pizza. It was lukewarm when it came out and... More

My son saw this place on the TV show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and wanted to check it out. We had a great time! It's all about the food here. The place is a hip dive, clean but barebones and sparse. If you're looking for ambiance you'll be disappointed. BUT... If you are looking for some amazing, if slightly odd,... More

I should preface this by stating that my standards for pizza are significantly lower everywhere in the US outside of NYC so I feel like this critique is fairly objective. I should also say that I've only had their pizza and can't judge the rest of their food. The times I've walked in, it's been dim, dingy, looked a little... More

thank you Joe Squared for serving the best pizza in Baltimore, and for supporting local musicians nightly. This place is a gem. Nothing more needs to be said.

Hopefully I can come back for a more detailed review, but for now, just know that the food is GREAT. They have gluten free calamari, and it is awesome. It's awesome for any calamari, gluten or not. And our risottos rocked. Sausage, carrot, roasted fennel, as well as the eggplant, caper, etc. And the salad - avocado and shrimp -... More

Between my undone toppings and burnt pizza it's easy to say that this place .. I will not return to. Nevermind the snarky service at this joint. I say this all the time if you're not happy working at a particular place then find somewhere else to work! The waiter was sarcastic and stern. The pizza was soggy and mush.... More

I ordered supreme pizza and maple wings. This food was great. The pizza melted in your mouth and had great flavor throughout. Only drawback is parking is scarce, but it was well worth the walk from and to the car. Will definitely return.

Our son took us for my husband,s birthday. The waitress was putting off a negative vibe from the start. My husband wanted a seafood pizza and made the mistake of building his own. The crust was burned but it still did have a decent tast but when we got the bill it was definately not worth almost $40. When my... More

Despite an odd location, I found this place through another site and went with my friend for dinner. I was amused at the seafood pizza they had on the menu which included catfish, calamari, crab, and 1 or 2 more seafood item I can't remember. Even my friend stole 2 slices of my pizza over her salad. It was that... More
