A word from Broadway Joe Steakhouse
In 1949, Joe Moreno opened the doors to his restaurant, temporarily calling it "Broadway Joe" - because his name was Joe and he was on block away from Broadway. In 1953 looking for a typical New York restaurant, a film crew shooting the "FBI Story" with Jimmy Stewart, choose to feature "Broadway Joe" in an unforgettable scene.
In 1970, Joe Namath, famous quarterback of the New York Jets, acquired the nickname "Broadway Joe" and frequented the restaurant and brought sports legends, as well as stars from Broadway shows to dine here. Over the years, Broadway Joe Steakhouse has been immortalized in books and described as a famous New York landmark.

Broadway Joe Steakhouse reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Although the steaks were fantastic,
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 12/27/2013
    Although the steaks were fantastic, the service was less than fair. Although friendly, the service was super slow and not in the least bit attentive. Our table was never offered a wine list upon being seated. The server walked to our table with our entrees but no one had ever cleaned off our appetizers, so he had to return to the kitchen with our dinners in order to clean off our table first. One of the five of us did not get the dinner ordered, so we had to wait for the appropriate order to return with no apology from management at all. Once we completed dinner we had to wait over 20 minutes for the check and we had to ask for a dessert menu and coffees as they were never offered. I would not return here due to the experience.

    The five of us were greeted and seated immediately open our arrival. We enjoyed entries and salads from the prefixe menu. I was pleased to find that I was presented with a great value for the price. The food was very good and the ambience was nice. The location made it easy for us to finish in good time and walk to the Minskhoff theater for our show in plenty of time. The service was very relaxed and professional. If we had not made our reservations with plenty of time to get to the show I would have stressed out very quickly. The server could have been considered to be inattentive, but he filled our water appropriately and our food was hot on arrival

    The meal was completely forgettable in every way, which might have been tolerable. However, what was not tolerable was the waitstaff, who complained openly about the ownership and asked us for recommendations of other local restaurants where he might put in an application (we live nearby). At the end of the meal he pulled the old "credit card machine doesn't work" story, and asked us to pay in cash. We obliged knowing we would not be back.

    Dined on 12/21/2013
    530pm reservation and they were out of prime rib. Seriously? At 530pm? Sadly, this information wasn't shared until AFTER, I had spent 10 minutes planning my entire meal bass on the assumption that I'd be getting prime rib. The waiter wasn't patient as I had to reconsider all my selections. Observed other nearby tables experience painfully slow service, indifferent attitudes from the staff, and incorrectly prepared meals. Disappointed, disappointed, disappointed. For Restaurant Row, you'd think it was their first week open.

    The wait staff was excellent. I went to Broadway Joes with my daughter before we saw Wicked. We have never eaten in the city before and we had a great experience. I would recommend Broadway Joes to everyone. We will definitely be back.

  • Good food, poor service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 12/7/2013
    The service was the problem for this restaurant. For pre-theater dining, I would avoid this place. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. We were asked if we had a reservation, but not our name or what time our reservation was for. We could have been seated at the same time if we did not have a reservation. There was a long line of people waiting for a table, and they were holding the restaurant door open to the cold. Once seated we waited quite a long time for service. The waiter was fine, but seemed overwhelmed. The food was good and well presented. We did not have time for coffee or dessert due to the delays of being seated and served.

    We literally waited at the front for 20 minutes before we were acknowledged. We even asked wait staff several times if they could catch our name as our reservation time had passed. Once seated they took our drink order, and even after several reminders, we never received drinks until after our food arrived. Food was average. The steak was good, which is to be expected in a steak house, but lobster was terrible. only 3 choices for desert was disappointing. Would never recommend.

    I was disappointed in our dinner Saturday evening. We visit Broadway Joe's frequently when we come to NY and Saturday night was not quite up to par. Service was extremely slow Once our order was taken no one came back to our table (except for pouring water in our glasses) unless we called for them.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 11/29/2013
    This place was recommended to us. We were early for our reservation but we were seated immediately in the front of the restaurant. Other customers came in we asked if we could be moved to the back of the restaurant and not near the door. The waiter made it seem like it was the most horrible thing we did.I'll freeze while I eat but your restaurant is empty. Once in the back room my husband and I both ordered off the price fix menu. Nothing terribly wrong with the food. My husband ordered Caesar salad and then had the filet for dinner. I also had the Caesar salad but had lobster ravioli. Again nothing terribly wrong just the food was ok. Nothing spectacular. Nor would I recommend this to anyone. There are far better restaurants in the area.

    Our reservation was for 2 people at 6 pm. No line when we got there but was asked to wait at the bar. People who came in after us were seated before us. When we said something we were seated right away but at at table that backed up to the salad plate chiller my chair touched it, that is how close we were. The wait staff was attentive but the seating thing just threw off the rest of the experience. Ordered from price fix menu. Portion of fish was not big. Chicken Marsala okay. Rice pilaf was tasteless. Best thing about restaurant was the bread. Would not recommend.

    Nothing about the experience would make me want to go back, greeted at the door with a list of items on the menu that were not ready and would not be ready for our meal. I'm talking about potatoes, asparagus, and half the desserts. Asked if we wanted drinks half way thru the meal and told us all the way thru the meal how the owner was letting the place run down and was trying to sell it. Food was at best adequate, not at all what you would expect from a NYC steakhouse. All in all a total disappointment, would not recommend nor go back.

    Was in town on a trip and went to Broadway Joe's. I got the sirloin and it was as though I had never had a steak before... It came with mashed, broccoli, carrots, salad and cheesecake. Salad was average, but everything else was off the hook. I went to many other restaurants during our trip and nothing else even came close. Atmosphere was great as was the service staff. I only wish that we went there a few more times during our trip.

    Friday night at 6 pm, no prime rib, service was very poor, hurried, felt like the servers expected us to take care of ourselves, no passion for the products, wrong wine brought, no apology, but, the steak I did get was cooked correctly. Felt like no seasoning were used on the veggies of the day, Next time I come to NY we will not be dining here.

    This is Broadway Joe's *Steakhouse* - but the steaks were not great - despite that the steaks were cooked as ordered, they were a bit tough and tasteless, which was disappointing, since I'd persuaded a work associate (who was dying for a good steak) to go there that night. The service was great, so it's not a waitstaff problem. The rest of the meal was OK (not mega-great). *The steaks are not what they used to be,* and I was a bit embarassed and both of us were a bit disappointed. The steaks come with the vegetables of the day, which were carrots and broccoli and that is ALL that was on the plate, too, so the presentation was stark and a bit lacking. :(

    This was a special event for my sons 30th birthday ...I emailed them several times this was special and to at least acknowledge his birthday. Got there and this waiter hardly made eye contact....did not even mention his birthday....and NEVER even smiled! I was shocked as the waiter was so impersonal! The food was ok, but for the price I really expected alot more out of this restaurant. I would never recommend it. My husband and I travel alot and know good service.. This would be on the bottom of my list...I think someone in management needs to tell their waiters to be personable, and smile, it is so much easier! Brenda Hill

    Food was great and the service was excellent, the only complaint were that the air conditioning was not on in the front when we arrived and the doors were open, it was terribly hot. They later turned it on which surprised us, we would have thought with it being that hot, if it was working it would have been on way before now, we just thought it was broken. The beer came out hot as well but was taken back and a new colder one was returned. Great neighborhood place, good menu, would still go back.

    Seems like this shrine may be in the need of a little upgrading. The air conditioning unit made it almost unbearable inside. Both of our steaks ordered medium had to be returned as undercooked. Many items on menu they were out of.Once cooked right was delicious.Somehow got the feeling thatBroadway Joe's is on it's last legs.

    Booked a table for 10.30 after theatre. I arrived on time. Restaurant staff said they were closing and would I go away. Said I'd reserved. This is what happened: 1st staff member: " suppose we have to serve you then" 2nd staff member: " don't you know we're closing" Me: "Don't bother" Guys, I have visited NY many many times. This has never happened before. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
