Joe's American Bar and Grill - Boston Ratings and Reviews
Busy dinner before a concert. Lively Friday night crowd. Prompt service and very hot meal in spite of the crowd. Meatloaf and baby back ribs were very good. Very good. Best Pimms cocktail I’ve had in ages. Always a reliable and delicious choice on Newbury Street. Love Joes.
This was a repeat business meal for an estimated 11 people (actually only 9) in a private room. Joe's Corporate posed huge hurdles including initially doubling the minimum food and beverage, from the time before, to $90 pp and 5 pages of legalese. Not at all easy to do business with. In the end, we got what we wanted with a less-unreasonable minimum, fine service and satisfactory food but the experience left a bad taste at a restaurant that has been a favorite.
My four year old and I had dinner at Joe's on Newbury Saturday night. We had a fantastic time! The kids menu is bigger than many places, and had the option of apples instead of fries. The service was appropriately attentive and patient with my daughter ordering for herself. And our food came out quickly, so there was no wait between drinks arriving, bread being delivered, meals coming out, and her ice cream.
Everything we wanted and more for a celebratory New Year’s Brunch. Great atmosphere. Outstanding staff made up of professionals who are friendly, courteous, and clearly well-trained. Food presentation was picture worthy as well as delicious. I even got a free dessert because it was my birthday over a week ago!!! I definitely highly recommend Back Bay Restaurant Group restaurants. Never a disappointment. 😊🥂
Service was ok - We were there on NYE for dinner and there was absolutely no atmosphere in the restaurant / bar. I had the steak for main meal and was able to eat as the chargrilled taste was like something that some one had painted onto it - fries also tasted off. I was really unwell during the night afterwards
We were happy to be there on NYE... lots of fun energy in the restaurant, we ordered a variety of dishes (party of 6) Every one was very satisfied with their meal. The swordfish was cooked to perfection, the macaroni and cheese was flavorful with out being greasy. Chicken picatta was delicious and not too salty like some places. Our server was spot on .. just the right amount of attention. We will be back for sure !!
We love Joe’s! The atmosphere is always good- especially at a high top table in the bar.
Always good drinks-
Kids enjoy the fish and chips! And of course the delicious and fresh bread.
The nachos are the most expensive nachos we have ever bought- $17 with chili on it. Crazy- feeds more than 4- but for chips and cheese not the best value.
My husband and I shared a grilled chicken sandwich- pretty sure it was about 3 oz total of chicken breast on the sandwich- skimpiest sandwich ever- and we weren’t looking for a lot!
Everything was very tasty- just the value is not great for the items we selected .
Lots on the menu - and a good variety.
I have had the deviled eggs on a previous visit and they are awesome! Should have ordered them this time too!
Impressed with Joe's! I had mistakenly put 2 people in my Open Table reservation when we were actually 6... The host and servers didn't mind at all and found us a quiet table in the back near the kitchen, which was great for our party that included two children. The server was attentive but not overbearing and listened to the kids' stories about seeing Disney on Ice! He even led them toward the kitchen to see the action there. The food was great (and consistent with our visits to other Joe's restaurants). I would have liked a more extensive craft beer selection, but otherwise, we were very happy with our experience!
We all enjoyed our Christmas Day lunch. The meals were delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and welcoming. I did feel that there could have been more of an effort to play Christmas music to create more of a Christmassy atmosphere. There were decorations etc but music would have definitely added to the experience.
Had 48 hours with my husband in Boston over the festive period. We were really pleased to find this venue open on Christmas Day. The venue itself has a lovely ambiance. The service was exemplary and the staff were really attentive. The food selection was very good, giving both my husband and myself plenty of choice. The portion sizes were perfect for us and the food tasted absolutely superb. We also enjoyed the festive cider cocktail alongside our meal.
We could not fault our dining experience here and the next time we are in Boston, will most certainly dine here again.
