“Good Food for the Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

First time to dine at a Tahoe Joe's. The decor was inviting and the food was good. I ordered the Joe's 10oz. Sirloin steak. Good flavor and cooked to my liking. I will definitely dine again at a Tahoe Joe's.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were seated fast, food portions were huge. They "dress" your baked potatoes at tableside for you. Steaks and lobster were awesome and cooked perfectly. Staff was super friendly and atmosphere was nice. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

“Who was first, Outback or Tahoe Joe's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went to several Outback Steakhouses before and when we entered Tahoe Joe's we were reminded strongly of Outback. That is not a bad thing though because we love Outback.
The food was very good and I would go there again, be it during a business trip or with the family. My first choice while staying at the Embassy Suites because it is walking distance and I can enjoy the glass of wine without thinking of driving.

“Yumm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

You'd think being a "Chain" it would not have such tastty food or that it would have a pre-packaged, heat-it-up in the bag oversalted taste. No way! The steaks are outstanding and th potato sides are great!

“Nice & easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Nice steakhouse, similar to an Outback Steakhouse. Easy walking distance from the Embassy Suites in SLO. Clean restaurant and efficient staff, with reasonable prices. Food was prepared as ordered, especially easy since I like my steaks "Philly Blue", cool center. Lots of families when we were there, but kids were quiet and still made the visit pleasant.
