JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House provides a bit of a unique dining experience. We have a semi-private dining room that will appeal to those wanting a nice, casual atmosphere without the noise and bustle of a bar right next to them. For those looking for a bit more in the way of live music, a great selection of craft beer and an evening out with friends, our Tap House side hits the mark. Our restaurant layout allows us to appeal to all ages and groups as we routinely have customers from their 20's to their 80's enjoying both sides of JoJo's Restaurant & Tap House.

JoJo's is our "go-to" for dinner when we are in Frederick, but we had the opportunity to enjoy brunch on Sunday and it was wonderful. The menu definitely has something for everyone but we took advantage of the specials - the raspberry pancakes and the spinach/goat cheese omelette. So much food, but oh so good! Special thanks to our server Cody, who always makes us feel welcome when we come in.
Thank you!

Once upon a time this was my favorite restaurant in Frederick. I went there exclusively. But then variation crept in with the quality of the food. So I stopped going for about a year. Then I went back. It was decent but not to the former caliber. I tried other places in town. I went back last week and ordered the Szechuan Steak special cooked medium. It came back closer to medium well. Every bite was coated in black pepper. That ruined an otherwise perfectly good steak. I won't be back for a while.

If you have not read my reviews then I will also remind you that the staff turnover there is very high. I do not know why. In the beginning this did not make a difference to me as the staff was always (and still is) attentive and fairly well trained. But these kinds of variations are signs of deeper issues to me.

And that's a shame because we got off to such a great start. I loved taking clients there. I hope things improve.

JoJo's is by far our favorite downtown Frederick Restaurant. Every item we've ordered on the menu is done with care and perfection. We have never been disappointed each time we have patronized JoJo's. Their menu has enormous variety and their specials are always intriguing. I ordered the 'Land & Sea' (chicken and crab cake, which is, to me, the best of both worlds. My wife had the Scallops, which she has ordered three times and savors each time. We'd go back for any occasion - this happened to be for her birthday. We may have to create more times to celebrate or start making them up!

This was exactly what we were looking for being our first night in Frederick for my birthday weekend.

We typically order JoJo's tacos which are great! My favorite are the shrimp; best shrimp I think I've ever had. Good beer selection, good service. Noisy but it's a popular place. There's a bar on one side and a restaurant on the other and we were in the restaurant. I think Tuesday's are taco specials but they always seem to be on the menu too.

My girlfriend and I chose Jojo’s because we had searched their beer menu and they had a great selection of (sour) beers she wanted to try. She got a flight of three ounce beers, we shared fried pickles which were very good, and got shrimp and tuna tacos. Our waitress was very nice and came by often to refill our waters and to see how everything tasted. Highly recommend.

We’ve eaten at Jojos several times and always loved the food. Unfortunately, this visit was disappointing. We were craving their Ahi Poke and that is specifically why we decided to go. The tuna itself was okay, but the avocados were rock hard. I ordered the bronzini with crab imperial special, but I couldn’t tell you how it was because my first bite was nothing but bones and shell. It cut the roof of my mouth. The staff was very understanding when they saw I was struggling and immediately offered to bring me something else. I opted for the shrimp pasta, which was good. My husbands dish, East West I think, was ok but nothing special. For the issue with the bronzini, we were comped a glass of wine. Everyone was kind and checked in on us to make sure everything else was ok, which was nice, but I thought after cutting my mouth on a forkful of bones and shell, a single glass of wine wasn’t much of a compensation. I hope this was just an off night at Jojo’s as it has always been one of our favorite places in Frederick.

The food was good. I was happy to see they were able to customize any dish on the menu (to avoid certain allergens). The waiter who waited on us was excellent as well. That being said, service was extremely slow. The waiter was great when he came, but it seemed like everyone was more focussed on serving the bar area. We sat in the dining area. It was a Tuesday evening, so wasn't particularly busy either. I would have preferred more attentive/frequent waiting, but like I said, when it did happen, our server (forget his name, sorry) was great. I gave the service 4 stars because of the person waiting on us.
