“African German Experience at its best”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Yes I mean it, African-German tastesare catered for by the wide variety on the menu. I had grilled Kingklip, then I also had pork neck on the other occasion both cooked to perfection. You must go there if in Namibia, Windhoek

“Homey food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

For any Traveler coming to Namibia, Joe's Beerhouse is a must. The food is typical Namibian (like the Steak), but the Atmosphere is also TOTALLY like in the old Sout West Africa.

“Nice atmosphere but super busy”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is very big but very busy as well. It is difficult to get the attention of the waiters because they have so many tables to cover, and the bar was packed. It is best to order your drinks and food at the same time.

I had the kudu steak with a mushroom sauce and it was good, along with some greens and fries. The portion was very generous and was just about to burst after finishing the steak (i couldn't finish the fries).

Price is not cheap, but food is decent. Be prepared to wait for your food and service, so better to arrive when you're not too hungry.

“Jaegermeister and springbok heaven”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Great food, if you like your meats! Fantastic decor, from the bar stools made from converted toilets to the car on the roof- good place to unwind and have more than a few drinks! Definitely be back!

“Great food and fun atmosphere”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a very busy wateringhole, so book ahead ! The service is slow, but the food excellent and compared to many other dinners in game lodges around the country, this is excellent value. The meat is quite spicy, so if you have an issue with that you have to mention it beforehand.
We had a really enjoyable evening with Lizzy a delightful waitress.
The decoration of this place is full of quirky things, it merits a little wander around to discover. Safe parking provided.
