From the outside of the building, this restaurant doesn't look like much. Don't be deterred from going in! The sushi was fresh, served quickly, and tasted wonderful. I will definitely return!

I stopped in for dinner. What a change. The service was still good, but the sushi has gone downhill. Some of the sushi was dry and some of the fish was falling apart and no firm. The taste was very bland. And, the prices have skyrocketed. Very disappointing.

I hadn't been here in a couple years. The service is still terrific, but unfortunately the sushi is just ok. I did not get the AYCE and ordered 2 rolls. The tiger roll wasn't bad in taste but wasn't put together well and fell apart when trying to pick it up, as was the case with several of the rolls.... More

I’ve been going here for years. As soon as you walk in the chef’s begin to scream something, a welcome, and you feel right at home. There is always a line and the place is packed. Just eat the AYCE special as it will allow you to sample everything they make. I have never had one bad experience there and... More

I had heard many years ago that this place had excellent sushi. Tonight my son and I tried it out. They have AYCE dinner for $23.95. I tried 3 rolls, two of which were the fried kind which I usually enjoy. However, these were so hard and crunchy that it was difficult to enjoy them. The other roll was pretty... More

The food is amazing, the All U Can Eat Sushi was excellent, the atmosphere was loud not only with people but loud top 10 music. It was like being at a disco. I don't think that our family will be returning unless someone asks for it as a special occasion. I could not enjoy the food because I wanted to... More

Joe's seems like it has been here forever. And you can see why. We visited again for lunch. As always, the service was prompt and friendly. We were offered the "all you can eat sushi" special, but seriously folks, two of their lunch boxes were all we could devour. We are stuffed! We enjoyed two very substantial lunches of tempura,...

Have been a regular here for more than 10 years and the place had not changed that much but the service and sushi gets better and better. When one of my son's was born in a hospital nearby, my wife and I went straight to Joe's along with our newborn. Fish here is always fresh. This place is always packed... More

No, it's not a fancy place. The parking lot is unpaved gravel and the interior is plastered with old photos of happy customers and friends. But that tells you something. It's a comfortable, friendly place with very good food and a good value. We paid about 10 bucks each for our lunch. Everything was tasty and very well prepared. Friendly... More

Since Edmund took over as Manager he has really turned this place around. The rice to fish ratio on their sushi is great. You get a small ball of rice and a nice large cut of fish. The place is always crowded but be patient it is worth it. With the crowds comes constant turn over of the fish always... More
