Nice place, the staff is friendly, the waitress made good suggestions, best Perch dinner I’ve had in the area, the dinner came with a side of pasta with meat sauce, incredible. I have visited this place twice in the couple of weeks I’ve been here and I can understand why local people tell me to come here. I will return….OFTEN…

Out driving when the wife asks of our dinner plans. She mentions Facebook friends are mentioning a place popular when she was much younger. So, we stopped. Decor is bit dated. Let's call it quaint. Service prompt and very courteous. I had prime rib, French onion soup and fries; wife had walleye, Italian wedding soup abs baked potato. Servings were... More

This was the second time at Joes. We live north of Detroit so it's over an hour drive. Believe me, if it was closer to home we would be dining there more often. The food is all homemade, and service is very good. Joes goes back to 1930 and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a good Italian... More

I keep thinking-hoping it will improve. Service was adverse and food plentiful. Or OK if you have a coupon but ..... It still has a way to go.

I took my parents here a couple of weeks ago for my dads birthday and I couldn't believe it had not changed since I was there last 15 years ago. The salad was a bagged lettuce that was old and brown, I ordered the prime rib and it was cooked perfect , but it was so tough I could barely... More

Very nice family owned Italian restaurant. Can be a quiet little romantic dinner, or the big family get together. Restaurant kind of separated. Great food. Cost level is about average.

Service and food was good. Stuffed mushrooms & calamari appetizers. Calamari was very nice (not rubbery like many restaurants ). We all had filets (5 adults ). Tender & cooked as ordered. Bill was reasonable. This will definitely be on our list to revisit on our various trips to visit family in Monroe.

The Wife and I went for a early Sunday dinner, the food was fantastic, the service even better. The property is (retro 60's ), but don't let that fool You. Large portions, quality was top notch, and We will go there again.
