Went to Joes when moving my son into school in providence. It was a nice night and doors were open to street. Food was decent with a good selection. Prices were pretty reasonable. It is located up by the capital building so it can be a bit out of the way for some. It was under the mall on a... More

We went around 830 on a Friday night. It was not that busy. The waiter was nice. He did keep checking if everything was still good. The scallop risotto was really good. My husband had the fried chicken and it was way to dry. The drinks were OK.

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!
