Waiter Abrahan was great, we had a large party and the waiter added to over fun and kept things so upbeat. Handled everything promptly.

We had a gathering to say goodbye to one of our coworkers. We all liked him and we didn't want him to leave, but we wished him well on his future endeavors. As a result, where we ate was very important to us. We wanted it to be something special, to be memorable, in short, something special.
Well, we just sat down and ordered right off the menu. The food was great. What a selection. We had 12 in our group and there was something for everyone. I mean there wasn't one of us who had to compromise on our order, there was something special for each of us.
Even though we had to say goodbye to him, he left us with a box of leftovers because the portions were so generous. If you want a special meal, a great time at a great restaurant, the Ice House is the place to go!!!!

Enjoyed Joe’s KC BBQ when the Joe’s KC locations were closed. We had a great time and our waiter was great! Btw-the food was EXACTLY what you would expect from Joe’s KC. Cheers!

Food was good and they even have a vegetarian option which is rare for a barbecue place. The service was quick and friendly

Excellent ribs, brisket and barbacoa tacos. The bbq beans were among the best I've ever had. Whiskey lemonade was outstanding.

We came at a busy time. They got us in, in surprisingly good time. The food was scrumptious, my drink was solid, and our waitress was good. Definitely a great place to stop, treat the tastebuds, and fill the tummy.

Food and service was excellent. However the noise level was disruptive to conversation and the restaurant was extremely warm.

Good for groups- lots of areas for
Seating and can accommodate big parties. Good food, BBQ is top notch and everything else our group tried was excellent also.

Tasty dinner but would have preferred the brisket to be thicker slices. Burnt ends were delicious! Yummy cornbread!

Ate here on a Sunday for lunch. Not crowded at all. Seated and served quickly. Great food but wish the selection was a little bigger- more like parent restaurant (Joe’s). Nice environment, Attempted to validate garage parking ticket but it didn’t work. Will definitely be back!

Very disappointed in the bar-b-que!! The burnt ends were very under cooked and easily 50% fat. Service was appreciated, but couldn’t overcome the meal.

Got the bbq nachos. The chip to topping ratio was a little chip heavy. The pork tacos would be better with pulled pork. Everything else table had was very good. Service was very solid. Nice to have “Joe’s” but with some other options. Tables comfortably spaced out so didn’t feel cramped even though it was plenty busy.

A good experience. There were 9 of us and our server was terrific at making sure everything moved along without a hitch. Enjoyable bar-ish decor. The food was a little hit and miss, but all in all a good experience. They’ll likely need to level up their food game in such a competitive area.

Honestly, you really can't go wrong with KC Joe's BBQ! The food was delicious, and for an event night, we got right in. Of course, we did make a reservation, so I would recommend doing that. I will definitely go back next time I am in the Power & Light area.

The Marriott recommended this place for BBQ, as it was in the popular area. The restaurant ambiance is casual and fun, decent beer list. The BBQ was nothing to write home about. I was disappointed in the brisket. Too thinly shaved. Spicy slaw was good. I’d go here for beers only again.
