I have been to Joe Muer 5 times now. I feel the expense is very high, and I could not afford to visit more frequently. However, I cannot think of a better restaurant. I have yet to be disappointed in my meal, the service, or the atmosphere. It is top notch, all the way!

Service was slow, had to keep looking for a service staff. The bus staff was very good and cleaned up quickly. Ordered lobster bisque but it twisted like tomato soup with a small amount of seafood. I ordered the seafood salad and the crab pieces were older and very fishy. My companions Alaskan crab was Luke warm to cold but she didn’t say anything will we got back to the car ... won’t recommend this place at all and defiantly never go back for a $250 lunch. Was very disappointed with Open Tables rating.

The quality of the food has changed. The lobster bisque taste like creamy tomato soup. The waiter was RULED, very rigid with my family. He had such an attitude and short with his words. I NEVER had a experience like at Joe Muer and brought my family just to celebrate life and was pretty disappointed to say the least.

There is nothing about a dress code on here when you make reservations. I am a pregnant woman who dressed comfortably and wasn’t allowed to sit on the patio. It was early in the day and not very many people there. I did not appreciate that at all.

This was our Second dining experience. The first time was great and we had CJ as our server. We told him we were coming back on Saturday with friends and really wanted a Riverview. He told us to request him as our server and put that in. We added that to our reservation and when we get there CJ didn’t even have Riverview seating in his section. We had VIP guest with us and we’re very disappointed to be sitting in a corner in the front part of the restaurant with no view. Our order was pretty screwed up. We ordered two lobster bisque soups to share. We were brought four soups. At the end of the meal we were very excited to order desserts off the cart. CJ brings us a slice of coconut cake for all four of us and nobody at the table liked coconut except for one person. It was also on the bill. Our bill was over $700 plus we added tip money. Was very disappointed in what CJ said he could get for us. When we mentioned it to him he just kind of blew it off and walked away. He didn’t offer to make it right to see if we could be seated somewhere else he was more concerned about him having us at his table. 😟

First, parking was easy, located across from entrance and validated by restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice,there was live music with a piano a nice touch. The service was cordial and polite and the food was great and reasonable. I had the Tomahawk porkchop dinner for me it was a great choice. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Waiter was conscious of our interest in socializing and did not press us to order right away. We all took his suggestions for dinner. I had perch and my husband scallops. Our guests did the halibut crab cake special. My husband is going in for major surgery and this is where he wanted to eat before being on a restricted diet. He was very pleased with the evening.
