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.

Good food. Lots of different beers. Can get expensive or you can get sandwiches for a little less. We’ve gone here several times and overall it’s a nice place to have dinner

This was exactly what we were looking for being our first night in Frederick for my birthday weekend. We were tired and didn't know exactly what we wanted but wanted it to be light and with the variety of their menu we found the perfect food for the evening. Will definitely be back, and loved spending my birthday weekend in Frederick!

This is a great place to eat in downtown Frederick. Good food, service and ambiance. It is a little loud in the main dining room which is hard to hear your conversation with your guest. Otherwise very good.

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.

Jojo's is our go to choice in downtown frederick. We were shown to a table by the window which was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. The waitress was always responsive to my husband's continually empty water glass. She didn't hover but was there for whatever we needed. The Lobster Benedict had a generous amount of lobster and was so good I had nothing left to bring home. My husband's Jojo burger was a perfect medium rare and juicy. Jojo's hasn't disappointed us yet. We'll be back.

A friend had recommended Jojo’s and we were excited at all the menu options that were included during brunch. We were looking for non-breakfast items. Some items were very overpriced (duck bites, poppers, and steak salad ). The quality of the food was food but I would tell people that they are going to pay a lot and get a very small amount of protein. The duck bites should have had double the amount and my steak salad probably had 3 oz of steak on it.

I have been to Jo Jo's twice and was very disappointed this time in my Asian salad. Seemed very skimpy. The lettuce/cabbage/pepper combination looked and tasted like it came out of a bag. I almost sent it back but we were with other people and didn't want to hold things up for everyone else.

Great spot in the middle of town. We had a table right by the window and had a wonderful lunch. The waiter was friendly and helpful, recommended some very good beers! Service was fast and food was great! My wife and I both had the crab soup which was really, really good. 2nd best crab soup I've ever had. My wife had the crab benedict (She let me try a bite and it was delicious) and I had their Reuben which is made with pork loin vs. corned beef and was very, very good! Loved it, would go again and will recommend!

Amazing recommendation from the docent at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine just a block or so down on Patrick Street. We did make an on-line reservation and reservations are definitely suggested. Although there were several tables when we showed up for our 5:30 reservation, the place filled up quickly. I went total crab...crab dip appetizer, cream of crab soup, crab cake...all excellent! He shared the appetizer, followed my lead with the soup, but went with the fish and chips and steak fries. He enjoyed his entree but thought he might try one of their burgers next time as the ones we saw at other tables looked fantastic. Loved this place and will be our go-to for future Frederick excursions.
