The food is pretty good and the service is good...not sure if the kitchen is just overwhelmed but it takes a long time to get food. Once went in for lunch with my husband and we were the only ones there for about 15 minutes and then another couple came in but it took 40 minutes to get our food.... More

Been here multiple times. My favorite items have to be the shrimp skewer appetizers, blackened catfish poboy with the spicy remoulade, Caesar salad and the shrimp creole. They always have a great beer selection - Three Floyds rotation and frequently Gumball Head (but I feel like the are more often than not out of Gumball Head - the only downside... More

We love Moe Joe's. We were seated promptly and our server was quick to get drink and appetizer orders. The Perfect Maragaritas were delicious. We really enjoyed the Caesar salads and corn bread while waiting for our entrees. The beer list is ever changing and our server was fluent in the current list, so we had no issues that the... More

Great Cajun food. Can get things really spicy.....medium spicy......and not too spicy. Lots of great choices - the Jambalaya is worth the trip, and the corn bread is a winner. Service was good, and wait staff was friendly. They also do catering, and the food is just as good as in the restaurant.

Nice little place that has little reminders of the bayou. on the walls. Sauces had the right amount of kick and spice as well. From gator, to crab, to burgers and more, Moe Joe's is a definite must stop and try type place in Plainfield Illinois. Literally 1 minute off of Route 59 and plenty of parking in the surrounding...

Never had dinner here just food and drinks from the bar. Staff is acceptable. Do not find them friendly or unfriendly. Gumbo is excellent and enjoy the oysters. Typically loud. Nightlife here brings in a lot of people. Mostly a younger crowd at night.

Excellent Louisiana cooking in downtown Plainfield. Everything I get, everytime I go is excellent. From the soups to main meals, you can't go wrong. It can be spicy, so bring a towel.

We went on a Sunday when they opened, they no longer carried a lot of the beers that were on the menu, so an updated list would help. The food was good, not fabulous, not horrible. The bloody Mary bar was average. Overall an ok visit, probably wouldn't go out of our way to eat there again, but if we... More
