Our annual pilgrimage to Shenandoah is not complete without a Saturday night dinner at Joe's Steakhouse. This year they had a live jazz trio that played well beyond their years. Each year it's something new. The food is good (not exceptional) and varied enough to satisfy most people. We recommend the spare ribs.

We were starving after a drive through Shenandoah National Park. Since we weren't familiar with the area, we scoured reviews online. Everything was highly rated, but didn't sound or look inviting. We passed by Joe's and decided to give it a try. The ambiance is perfect, the service was impeccable (request Gerald Delaney!), and the food was beyond delicious! I... More

My partner and I are from Arlington and stopped in for lunch enroute to Skyline caverns. The ambiance is amazing .. white linen table clothes, wonderful woodfire, beautiful easy listening music ... and the meal - beautiful duck, vegetables and wine .. top notch. Well done.

We stopped at Joe's for dinner on our way back from Shenandoah national park & we were so happy that we did. The food was really good and the service was even better. Also the live music was a great addition to the already wonderful ambience .

Alyssa and Karli gave us the most friendly and fantastic service ever! We went for brunch today (11/20/16). The prime rib, made to order omelets, and chocolate chip pancakes were super tasty. We also found out that Alyssa has a role in the upcoming Mystery Dinner Theater this Jan/Feb -- and we will be sure to attend! .

We were in town for a funeral and went her to eat. The food was good and the staff were great. The only thing was there was a band playing and it was so loud you could not have any kind of conversation without yelling. The wait staff had a hard time hearing your orders. The band was good but... More

Winding roads, colorful leaves and even a bear sighting made for a perfect day for this Harley biker couple on our ride through Shenandoah National Park on this late fall day, and we capped it with a near-perfect night at Joe's Steakhouse in Front Royal . Near-perfect. Helpful and friendly, the maitre d' chatted with us at the entrance and... More

Renovation, new management and skilled chefs have greatly enhanced Joe's Steakhouse turning it into one of the best restaurants in Front Royal. Friendly staff, fireplace in the main dining room, intimate bar and welcoming patio add to the ambiance.

So we finally decided to try Joe's. They had a jazz band playing, which was very nice, and the staff seemed very nice as well - until the bill came. The "free" desert, they only give to one person at the table but of course they don't tell you that at all! And the "house" salad is extra! Extra for... More
