The prices are a little expensive but for what you get in the way of excellent service and great tasting food in a relaxing environment after a hard day, it is worth the price. There was 6 of us and we all where tired and...More

This was discovered from an empty stomach driving around after an event. The staff was friendly and food and drinks were exquisite. Not to mention the cleanliness.

We often want to close out our weekend with a dinner out, and most places in town are closed on Sunday and Monday nights. Joe's is open and friendly, and the food is reliable. A special shout-out to our server, Camryn, who is efficient, professional,...More
