We enjoyed our dinner here. I ordered the roasted chicken. It was very good but my friend ordered their steak. The steak was very bland - no flavor. Looks like most of the people were ordering the sandwiches. Very generous portions. The service was very good.

We wandered into Joe's by chance and had a very entertaining evening!! I must say that The manager ( Beatles Fan) and staff were extremely friendly and the food was great. I had as good a steak as I've had for a long time. The entertainment came when I requested a glass of red wine with my steak, only to... More

We stopped in here for drinks before catching a pontoon boat ride for water fire. The bartender Jonathan was super nice and helpful with our out of towner type questions and made really great drinks including a cucumber mojito that was amazing. Open windows and breezes filled the area and was a nice touch!

Joe's has a great menu that works for everyone. I was most impressed by the attention they paid to my friend's gluten allergy. A little pricey but worth it for great service and dependable food. Love the tuna salad and tuna appetizer!

I was there for dinner last night. My husband and I sat at a table in the bar area. We were greeted right away and our server, Courtney, was very helpful when I asked about the wine list. I ended up with a very nice glass of wine. I ordered the scallops risotto and my husband ordered the French dip... More

My daughter and I travelled up for a college visit to Brown University and decided to stop at Joe's on our last day there for lunch as we kept passing it by and it was always so busy. So off we went. We were seated right away and then spent a good ten minutes waiting for a server to come... More

My husband and I had lunch at Joe's today. Beautiful inside with pretty spacious seating. We sat in a large booth. Our table and seats could have used a bit more cleaning. Waitress was young and didn't seem to be present until she brought us our check. Twice missed bringing drinks that we had ordered and when we ordered our... More
