We went to the restaurant with friends and three of us had the rib eye steak which was well prepared according to specifications including my wife"s who likes it "bleu", that is rare. Another person has the pork cutlet which was tasty, though perhaps a bit dry. The wine list is simple but affordable. Service is pleasant and reasonable efficient.

We were looking for a decent lunch spot in this area - something new that we hadn't tried. Joe's American Bar was our choice. When we arrived we found an extensive menu. The waiter explained they made everything on site so we could change anything. Food was excellent!

I read other reviews that the food here is up and down. The day we were there the food must have been down. We started our meal, but the taste was terrible so we didn't finish. We brought our issue up with the manager and after paying for our soda, we left ... I guess the hostesses up front giggling, and screaming "that's my jam!!" and high fiving another of the managers should have been our first clue that this was not some place we wanted to have a meal.

On an up note ... our server really was a peach. She did everything we would expect of a great server, unfortunately, the food coming from the kitchen should have not been served to anyone.

While there, we saw several other meals going back to the kitchen.

There are other places to eat in the same area ... perhaps one of them should be your first choice.

Went on a saturday nite with Brither and his wife. Made reservation and was seated on time in a nice booth. However, service was somewhat slow, even getting greeted and waiting for drinks to be delivered. Because we were not ready when waitress delivered drinks to order food, waitress disappear for what seemed like a long time before we saw her again to order meals. We had to ask if there were "specials', which there were and had to ask for their special bread, which normally gets delivered to the table right after you food order is taken. One out of the four meals was not what was ordered and we had to wait for butter for the baked potatos because the plates came with sour cream and NO butter. Overall food was very good to excellent and is consist with the quality of food that I experience in the Braintree location which I visit often. However, if after the manager on duty, who served some of the meal, know of our requested for steak knives, butter and more drinks, the service did not improve. Hopefully this is only one waitress and her problem and not the normal service that is there every nite !!!!
