We are very excited to announce that we are now taking reservations for inside dining on our restaurant side. Our patio and tap house are first come first served.
Opened in August of 2012, JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House quickly became a staple in Downtown Frederick. JoJo’s offers a unique new-american style dining experience with both a casual dining room and cozy tap house. Our menu features 26 rotating beers on tap, and a full bar with an excellent selection of wine, whiskey, and craft cocktails. A private dining area is also available for those looking to host special events such as rehearsal dinners and business luncheons.

JoJo’s hosts a fantastic happy hour in the tap house 7 days a week, as well as live music on Saturday nights. Varying menu specials are presented daily, and with a little something for everyone, we invite you to stop by anytime!

I ordered the Restaurant Week special but was not pleased with the flavor blends in my beef sandwich. Perhaps if I went here again, I would order from the regular menu. The service was very slow, especially when trying to check out. Ambiance is good, if a bit noisy.

Lovely waitress. Friendly and a hard worker. It was noisy but it was pretty full.
Food was very good but I had to send my pasta back because there was pepper in it and I can’t eat spicy. The waitress apologized and was surprised it was spicy. I was looking forward to it but they substituted the beef dish and it was quite good.

Great food, great cocktails, great service. Restaurant week in Frederick, MD so a fixed menu was available. I had the New Zealand clams cooked in garlic followed by the Bock chow soup. My wife had the beet and goat cheese salad followed by the beef bourguignon. Food was wonderful. Our waiter, Ben, was attentive and engaging. would recommned.

It was the first night of restaurant week, so perhaps it wasn't indicative of a normal night, but I was disappointed in my Steak Frites entree. It was supposed to have chimichurri on it but what I got definitely wasn't that. It was a drizzle of some kind that went nicely with the casear salad that was paired with the steak, but I was really looking forward to the chimichurri that I'm familiar with. Brilliant green and vibrant taste. For the $26 price tag, I was a bit let down. Good ambiance overall, but a bit noisy; again, could've been the restaurant week crowd.

Overall this is one of 2 restaurants I love in downtown Frederick and visit often. Visiting during restaurant week I thought it would be the same amazing food experience. Unfortunately, the beet salad had the beets missing and had to ask for them. Dessert was very bland. Main entree was the star. Wished it had been a 3 for 3. Waitress was also pretty new.

Very inviting atmosphere (at least in front room) with good, rather affordable pub-type food, some with an upscale twist. Especially good burger. Ditto chicken and andouille gumbo. Restaurant side is pleasantly quiet; bar side can be very loud. Definitely recommend.

Great experience overall. Food was delicious! Salmon was cooked perfectly with a seared outside and soft flaky inside. That paired with the Thai curry vegetables was a delight. I also ordered a side of sautéed spinach w/ garlic and it was packed with flavor. I would definitely return again if in the area.

Excellent spot for a pre-theater dinner, just steps away from Weinberg Center. So glad we followed other reviewers' recommendations to start with the duck bites - delicious! The shrimp and grits could have used more grits but were very tasty. The chicken chesapeake features a tender, juicy breast and accompanying crab cake. Ask for extra gravy on the side since it doesn't come with much, plus the gravy tends to blend with the remoulade.

The food was exceptional, and the service was outstanding. It was a bit on the loud side, especially when a couple was face-timing with their grand kids. That was pretty annoying. I've never been disappointed at JoJo's with the food and the service. They truly aim to please. If you haven't been there, then you owe it to yourself to try it. You won't be disappointed.

We’ve always enjoyed the food at Jo Jo’s. It’s a popular restaurant so be prepared for noise if you’re dining around mealtime. My favorite is the shrimp tacos though we also had a spring roll special as an appetizer that was fantastic. Some servers are better than others. Again, ours was busy but I had to ask three or four times to have my water refilled. Other than that it was fine. Fun place to people watch.

JoJo's is our go-to spot when we go to Frederick - the food and service is always exceptional. This past Sunday we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday with brunch at JoJo's. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. JoJo's has a large brunch menu with something for everyone, as well as specials. From the "specials" menu I tried the Asian Shrimp Omelette which was truly phenomenal, and our daughter had the banana pancakes, which she loved. My husband selected the breakfast burrito from the regular menu and said it was definitely one of the best he's had. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and our server, Cody was - as always - attentive and courteous.
