Love coming here for their happy hour to kill time waiting for the movie to start. Their margaritas are strong and their wings are yummy.

Just another chain restaurant. The service was slow (they were not very busy) our food was average, could be compared to chili's, Applebee's, genre of taste and serving size. The decor was nice that why this establishment reached three stars. Otherwise just based on food and service alone a solid two star.

My wife and I split the 10oz Joe's steak. It was very good, as always. Our server took very good care of us, ask to sit in Jason's area.

It has been far too long since eating here. We have no reason for staying away and we're glad we returned. This is a steakhouse and that's what we have here—and it's always excellent. If we don't order the ribeye, Joe's Steak, or the twin filets, we are particularly fond of the steak salad and the steak sandwich—both of which... More

Food isnt like it use to be. The ribs were to salty, nothing looked fresh. food didn't have much flavor. Service was ok. We were there for a fundraiser. Maybe thats why, too many people, Poor food, poor service

This is a favorite Sunday lunch venue for us. We love the food specials offered in the bar/patio area. Joe's steak is among the best ever, the flavor is totally different from offerings by traditional steak houses. Service always excellent and the cheesecake is the bomb!
