We had a great meal and were able to have conversations without having to scream. The waiter could have been a bit more attentive- we asked 3 times for water. The rest was perfect.

A last minute decision was a wise move on our return through the area from a day of skiing. Nicole and Mike at the bar were amazingly welcoming and professional. We had the house salad, fresh with white balsamic dressing, followed by prime rib and a N.Y. strip. Both great cuts, served at the perfect temp accompanied with baked potatoes and spinach. Did not disappoint, whatsoever. Thank you Open Table and of course Joe's American for making me look good!!!!

Took my boyfriend and our boys to dinner, the menu fit everyone's likes and it did not disappoint. It was a great night and we were not rushed to leave. They brought out a dessert with a candle for my boyfriend for his birthday, which was so nice. Thank you for making it a great night.

Enjoyable but not exceptional. Would go back if someone invited me but probably won’t book again with so many other places around.

Had a lamb burger with a Greek salad. Both were acceptable but not memorable.

Had dinner before a movie with another couple. We had a service dog with us and she had a comfy spot to lie while we ate. The waiter and manager were very accommodating to one of us who has a food allergy. Very nice atmosphere, great food, and friendly staff. Highly recommend!

Joe's never disappoints. It works as fancy but the price is manageable. Food is always good, service is always professionally casual. That is, staff is very friendly but they keep the professionalism through dress, manners and hustle. Always feels like a special treat!

Put up a reservation, bar seating was open so we took it to watch a game.
A little loud but expected during football
App was pulled pork sliders - will be a meal in future, so good!
Tomato basil was out of this world.
Service was great, waitress friendly and personable.

We have been to this "Joe's" many times. It could use a "make over", to be honest. The facility is a bit tired and worn. The food is perfectly fine and the prices are reasonable. Good location, too.

Great grilled fish sandwich, burger, fries and salads. This is a really nice place to go for a casual meal, quite consistent in the value, food, service. I overheard a small issue with another customer handled very nicely by server and manager, something we sadly do not see often enough.

Wonderful place for a meal. Wine list could use some work but the cocktail menu makes up it. The kid had an overstuffed lobstah roll - lots of meat, light mayo. Really good! I had the most excellent and flavorful turkey burger and my husband had the black and blue burger. Can't go wrong with those! Waitstaff was super friendly and attentive, busy and not hovering.

Thanksgiving meal. Waiter was abrupt and forgetful. He was halfway across the room, walking towards us, when he asked "do you know what you want?" Didn't even fully get to our table. Full menu was an option but we all opted for the Thanksgiving menu which was a starter of chowder or salad, either turkey with all the fixings or cod with rice and succotash, and a dessert. The waiter initially didn't ask my mother or me which starter we wanted, we had to remind him that it was included. Salads were fine, according to my parents, but the chowder wasn't hot and was not very flavorful. Turkey dinner was supposed to include cranberry sauce; it was not on the plate. The fish came with green beans instead of succotash. There was no explanation or even mention that it would be different. We asked for the dessert, but one was to go. They all came out on plates.

I might have been willing to excuse it if it was super busy, but half the tables were empty. I can now see why.

We will not do this one again.

Good food, but a little overpriced. I'm tired of hearing "the bread is in the oven". Bread used to come when greeted by the server. I end up asking multiple times, and then ask a manager. Even then, the bread comes minutes before the meal. We like to have bread with our wine while waiting for the entree.

The food was terrific - steaks cooked to spec, sides very tasty. Service seemed a bit lost as there was too long a wait between check-ins and sorting out the bill. Been here before and service was top-notch, so while this time was sub-par, I wouldn't hesitate to go again with business colleagues.

We were a party of 10 and our server was a bit inept. It's unfortunate for her since the table had several experienced servers and bartenders and we're usually an easy bunch. The server was slow to water the table bringing only one or two glasses at a time. Also, the bread, which is very good, didn't appear until well after cocktails were served. The food was satisfactory, neither super good or a train wreck. My sister inlaw who does not eat meat ordered the veggie burger and when it arrived was unsure due tothe low lighting. I took a bite for her since she gets ill if she eats meat. It was a regular meat hamburger. It took several minutes to get the server's attention and then she apologized and said they'd cook her a new one. In the meantime, all other meals had been served and so we waited so my sister in law wouldn't have to eat alone. The wait time is unavoidable but annoying. The new veggie burger took about 10 more minutes. I believe that the veggie burger should have been removed from the check as a sign of good faith but was not. The server was friendly and did offer to split the checks up, which she did. The veggie burger thing left a bad taste in our mouths...no pun intended.

Joe's American Grill is an automatic stop when in the Woburn area. Comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, attentive & welcoming staff and full selection of craft beers to accompany a wide choice of properly prepared meal choices....ranging from bar snacks to steak dinners. See you all again on my next visit

Visiting Salem, MA. From Phoenix Az stayed in Woburn, Ma. Restaurant was close to Courtyard Marriott. Full rack of ribs, literally pushed the bones apart and was mouth watering delicious. Get the 7 layer chocolate cake to top off the meal.

I hadn't been here in awhile and was looking for somewhere comfortable, casual with good moderate priced food. I had never had a bad meal here and we were celebrating a 60th birthday and there were 11 of us. Being right off of 128 in Woburn made it very accessible to all attending. We were kindly greeted by Rosanna, at the door, the setup for our group was great and AJ was our fun, outgoing waiter. Everyone was very happy with their meal, nothing was rushed, brought our own cake which they refrigerated and served to us with candles lit when the time was appropriate. Needless to say, I am very happy I made this choice and so was the family. Thank you!!
