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

My wife and I went to Joe's last night for a couple of cocktails and dinner. Sat at the bar. The service, atmosphere and food were all fantastic. We'll definitely go back again.

We have eaten here in the past but we were very disappointed this past Sunday. The quality of the food has really gone down hill and unfortunately the prices have gone up. I ordered a Florentine Omelet off the brunch menu and it was terrible. Cold, hard eggs with no flavor and almost no spinach. There was a scoop of... More

Joe's American Bar & Grill was a nice surprise. I was an invited guest so this was a pleasant surprise and loved eating, talking with new friends and watching the evening pass by. The food and the drinks were good. Don't let the big menu disappoint you because you can't go wrong with anything. Our large group ordered an array... More

Located within walking distance from several hotels, across from the canal, and sort of "within" the mall at Providence Place. We were staying at the Biltmore for a charity event and we were starving. We popped into UNO's but there was an entire group taking up a slew of bar seats, while not sitting, so we immediately moved on. We... More

Was visiting son at college and went to Joes as a safe choice where we know food is good and fresh. Joes is a chain that we have in Connecticut and love to go for the basic salads, sandwiches, and burgers. Reasonable prices...take reservations and then can walk around mall if you like
