I highly recommend this restaurant. It is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it for an outstanding steak. I have been there three times and was not disappointed with the service or the food. Go for it!

Absolutely wonderful. Service was great and the food even better. A nice children's menu too. A true Wisconsin selection, from the "raw beef" to brandy old fashions!!

Joey's in Mequon is a really nice place. Looks like a speakeasy inside with a nice bar atmosphere. Although I like the wait staff, training and/or caring about the customers comes second to chatting behind the bar or being on a "smoke break" for 25 minutes while we get parched and wait for drinks...that we PAY for by the way. Is this not how a bar is supposed to make money? better customer service would indeed increase the profit margin for sure. It also befuddles me why we cannot get the check in a timely manner when we certainly are not getting drinks (unless we ask for them) and getting food orders incorrect. The food is OK, The steak is better at Outback etc.

We live near Joey's, and like to "stop in" and dine at the bar. They always have a good large crowd, and it feels like a "place to be". The bartenders are top shelf talent, and have been in the business for a long time, and it shows. They take care of us. The food is good, not great, but good. Although higher priced, the atmosphere, and uniqueness make it a good night out. They pursue a "supper club" theme, but way overpriced for that idea. A true Wisconsin supper club is a place to enjoy great localized comfort food in an "at home" environment, at reasonable prices. While I don't see Joey's as a "supper club", I still like it for the upscale local spot it has become. I assume they will continue to evolve towards this.

Overpriced, average quality steak, poor service. Long wait to place order. Long wait for weak, overpriced drinks. Multiple orders screwed up in same night. Ordered NY Strip steak medium rare; received well done Rib Eye which was tough and sinewy. Come on Joe; you're better than this.
