We were starving and opted for burgers, but what stood out most was the kindness and professionalism of the staff.

After a long drive to King of Prussia, we stopped in Joe's for a relaxing drink & snacks. Good selection of domestic & import beers, and some fun mixed drinks on the menu. The barmaid was so friendly and cheerful that we decided to stop back 2 days later to have a late dinner at the bar. Joe's isn't "gourmet fare", we know what their menu includes, but it has a nice variety of tasty choices, and the atmosphere is fun. I'd go again for a frosted mug of draft beer and appetizers & conversation.

We went in around 11 pm they were still open and the food was good. They offer carry out and the atmosphere seem nice. It was always busy and there may be a wait, but it was worth it!

The commercials for this place make you want to run out and get a steam pot, they look so succulent. Went here with family, it turned into a 3 hour tour. The waitresses were all congregated at the front of the restaurant just hanging out, they were nice people, just busy standing there doing nothing. We all ordered steam pots, there was alot of food but everything was over cooked, I mean everything. The lobster was shriveled up inside the shell, the clams were like little raisins, you had to soak everything in butter to get it moist. They didnt really empty our shell bucket that much either. The drinks were way expensive and you could hardly taste the alcohol oh and they stuck us outside to sweat through the entire meal. Everything took forever, I just wanted to get out of there. It was along the lines of Red Lobster, generic seafood. If you want decent seafood, it is worth your while to head down to Maryland for the real deal.

Ate at another Joe's in PA. Was not disappointed! My steampot was as good as I remembered. My husband's crab cakes were slightly burned on the bottom, but were eatable. Will continue 2 try
other locations & return to these if I have the opportunity.
