The Late Night Menu is fantastic!! Only complaint I have is that the parking lot is much too dark. Better lighting is needed for safety.

We enjoyed our evening at Joe's American Bar and Grill. The food was good, the service was great. Our table was ok. The lighting was inconsistent--to dark in some places, and too much over our table, but overall it was good.

We were a party of ten, but our waiter was excellent and managed the whole table with aplomb; his tenure at Durbin Park was evident but appreciated.

We go there every year, and this time they put us in a tiny table that there was no room for the dishes, etc. I asked if we could move and they said no. I guess we will look for another place next year.

Service was extremely slow (didn’t see waitress until 15 minutes after being seated, never got bread after asking twice, drink from bar took 20 minutes and came after apps with dinner), order was wrong, cocktail was soda water in a glass with a lime, and waitress was difficult to track down. When we were able to get her attention, she was less than friendly and rudely (and quite obviously) complained to coworkers about us.

We got to Joe's often and enjoy the atmosphere. Food is good and reasonably priced. Muscles could have been cooked for a few more minutes.

We have always had a nice meal and experience at Joe’s. Have been there many times with large and small groups.
The menu has something for everyone and the wait staff are friendly and professional.
Love it that you can make a reservation on Open Table ... it’s all good!

Went with a friend who had a yen for the baby back ribs. They were great. I had the salmon served with artichokes and spinach. The salmon piece was huge and probably the best prepared salmon I've had in a long a time. It was cooked perfectly such that it was moist and it just fell apart in small sheets. Great!

The night started off on a bad note as my drink was served in a cracked, chopped glass. I didn't notice until I had sipped it 2-3 times so there was a moment of panic. The bartender (Nicole?) was very apologetic and replaced my drink immediately. The other issue is a matter of perception, the tuna tartare was very spicy for me. I like spicy food but the level of spice did not match the dish.... again, my perception. The ambiance, the service and the drinks were fantastic. Mike

$5. Late Night menu is a great idea and a superb value. I often work until 9:00 PM so this is perfect for me. I’ve had this several times and have always been pleased.
