“It's hit or miss here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We have had some good meals and then some have been horrible. The food preparation seems sketchy. Frozen mussels, sent back, returned still with ice particles.

I'd probably get the filet mignon and you should be ok

The patio area is beatiful and we will give it a try again soon.

The staff is great here too

“And on the Left....there was Joe's Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

What a find....while looking for another restaurant in Front Royal VA we came upon Joe's Steakhouse on Royal Avenue. We happened upon this jewel on a Tuesday evening. It was early but there were several cars in the parking lot...upon arrival were were told that there was a free wine tasting this evening by our very attentive, but not obtrusive waiter, Ralph. Wahoo. The place began to fill... For dinner we both chose Three Wish Salmon...amazing...It was baked Salmon...topped with a large scallop, shrimp, crab meat and a very, very light sauce...perfectly cooked, vegetables and salad....what more could you ask for....!!!! We will be back.

“Rehearsal Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We were looking for a venue that would allow us to have an intimate rehearsal dinner for our out of town and family guests. Joe's took care of us by giving us early accessibility for setup
and great service during our dinner. They were very accomodating and we couldn't have found a better location for our special day!
Koodo's to management and staff!!

“Yummy peanut butter pie, but no handicapped entrance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

When we first arrived to Joe's we saw no handicapped parking or a handicapped entrance. We were traveling with my grandmother who is 85 and on a walker and was unable to climb the stone stairs into the restaurant. My family and I were shocked that there was no entrance or ramp for my grandmother to use, considering that having handicapped parking spots and entrance is a federal law. We had to park on the side of the restaurant, walk through the patio then into the bar to arrive into the restaurant. We were given rosemary bread with olive oil and the bread smelt heavenly and was delicious. 3 of the guests in our party ordered the ribs and said they were delicious. I ordered the crab cakes which were good and tasted like pure crab meat. The other guest ordered the prime rib which was delicious as well. For dessert, we got 3 slices of peanut butter pie which was declicious, but we forgot we could have had an entire pie for $2 more. The only complaint was that we all wished it had more peanut butter in it and less chocolate. But all around it was a great meal, a little pricey but worth it. It would have been better if there would have been handicapped entrance/parking spot for my grandmother.
