“Pretty solid food for a chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Moderately priced food that you can count on. Portion size large, the dip for the bread is great, kids grilled cheese was good, had salmon, slightly overcooked, key lime pie, strawberry shortcake amazing and salads all good. Consistent quality. Started in MA and now moving south. Can't go wrong here

“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

My first time trying this place was very nice. We were seated promptly and chose to sit outside because the weather was beautiful. The bread that they give you with this cheesy dip stuff is DELISH. I had a crab cake sandwich that was tasty also. Will come back.

“Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We have been here several times and it's always excellent. This past Sunday, June 8th was no exception. The food is always tasty; you can tell they use quality ingredients. Our waitress was wonderful - even though she got busier the longer we were there. There was a misunderstanding about what one person in our party ordered. When it was discussed with our waitress she was quick to apologize and rushed a replacement. She even offered to ask the kitchen to make a dish that was on their fall & winter menu but not currently offered. The main thing I love about this restaurant is how accommodating it always is. They are always willing to make substitutions to a dish. Since everything is made fresh they will adjust ingredients to your taste or dietary restrictions. One warning - the fresh baked bread they bring to the table is delicious and hard to resist.

“MMMMMMM Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Nothing negative can be said about our visit. Food was excellent and service outstanding. I will continue to frequent Joe's as it is one of the few places that you don't have to worry about anything related to your meal

“Interesting restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

My co-workers at work speak highly about this restaurant so I decided to try it. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Happy hour prices are for the bar and outdoor seating area only. Bread is brought to the table with grated Romano/parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper with some extra virgin olive oil to dip it in. It was quite different but good. Happy hour offers sweet chili chicken wings for .50 each. You can order as many as you like. They are pretty good. The waitress explained that everything is made in house and from scratch. I tried the not your average house salad which consisted of organic greens, sun dried tomatoes, blue cheese and a lemon vinaigrette dressing. There were very little blue cheese chunks and sun dried tomatoes. The salad was basically a bowl of mixed greens with dressing on it. It was ok. The greens were bitter. If I choose to go back, I will not get this salad again. My son got the Hog Heaven pulled pork. It came with onion strings on the sandwich and on the side. Too many onion strings. I think fries should have been offered with this menu item. My husband got the Tuscan Grilled Chicken sandwich, he said it was good. The fries were not desirable. My oldest son got anything but average meatloaf. Presentation was interesting. It looked like two hamburger sliders. The mashed potatoes were the bread and the meatloaf was formed into patties like a hamburger. He did say it was pretty good. Overall experience was good for the first time. Food was different but decent. I say a little pricey too. I would suggest go during Happy Hour and take advantage of the Nachos, sliders or wings and get something like a salad or appetizer as your meal.
