I've eaten here multiple times as it is one of a few sit down restaurants at the mall. It also has a bar. Mostly I eat here because my gluten free daughter is taken care of when it comes to her meal. In every visit, we are usually approached by a manger to assure our meal is prepared properly. Many... More

It was very crowded when we went so I want to qualify my comments as that may have affected the service. Service was slow and our server seemed distracted. He checked in on us without actually looking at us for reacting to what we said. I had the ahi tuna salad and the ahi was good. My sons burger was... More

Had the Mushroom Provolone Burger with a beer. The burger was OK, nothing special and the fries were lukewarm. Service was OK, also nothing special. Kind of felt like it wasn't special to have customers in the seats ordering food.

Took the family for Sunday Brunch which was disappointing. We made a reservation which they honored. Service was very slow and coffee served lukewarm. The hamburgers were overlooked, but we waited so long, we didn't want to send them back. The omelet was also lukewarm and salty. Their famous bread tasted stale and was cold. Definitely not up to their... More

Made reservation for dinner at 5:30pm Friday night. Reservations were not necessary at that time but restaurant was very crowded by 6:30pm. Temperature in restaurant was chilly and waiter said they could not adjust it since it was controlled by the mall. Nice atmosphere, especially is you can get a seat by the open windows onto the mall area. Food... More

Had not been here in years and always had a nice experience, so came here for a business dinner. The place was not crowded so we easily found a seat. My colleague ordered the Chicken Fajita, which came out pipping hot and looked very good. I ordered the "Roasted chicken with greens" and it was not at all what I... More

Had lunch with my friend while shopping in the mall this week. As usual, Joe's was crowded lunch time & I was surprised we were able to get a table without a wait. The menu has enough choices for lunch between salads & burgers. We both decided to have a lunch special of Caesar salad topped with blackened Talapia, dressing... More

It is a good place. They have vegetarian options. I liked the place and the service. The capuccino wasn't very warm but it was ok.

It's hard to believe this is a chain restaurant. The food is fresh and the drinks are good. There is always a wait, however, put your name down and go shopping for a while or call ahead for reservations. My favorites are the clam chowder and Crazy Harry's Cobb Salad. They always have several special including meats and seafood. The... More

Joe's is located right in Short Hills Mall. There is often a wait so put your name down, walk around for a little and then enjoy! The restaurant is fun, warm, a little loud, but in a high energy way. The food selection is plentiful. The drinks are great! They have great soups, salads, sandwiches and definitely hamburgers! We have... More
