    My Mom’s 80th birthday, we had a group of 7 and had a great time. I am GF and had a burger with a toasted GF bun and gf fries. Other meals were the scampi, salmon, lobster rolls, fish tacos, regular burgers. All the food was delicious. Definitely worth the trip!

    We went to watch the SuperBowl and were treated to fantastic seats and cuisine. The Crab Cakes were amazing -- big lumps of crab and the accompanying coleslaw was different and delicous. The burger was also very good, and it was nice to have the option to order it with a salad. Thanks Joe's for being consistently very good! Jill and Jim McGrath

    Two friends getting together for a weekend lunch. The restaurant was crowded and there was a line out the door. We had reservations, were promptly seated and even though the place was hopping were quickly greeted by our friendly server. We both had burgers, my friend wanted her’s medium rare, well done for me. Both arrived as ordered and both were piping hot! We both had dessert and our choices arrived quickly and were delicious (as were the burgers)! We both marveled at how organized everything since the place was crowded!

    Overall it was great! Beautiful restaurant with a great environment. Our server was very lovely and so friendly. The one comment I would make is that their menu isn’t fully updated. The chicken BLT comes covered in mayo which wasn’t mentioned on the menu. However we sent it back and were delivered another one very quickly. I would suggest making a reservation because it is busy and I would arrive 10-15 mins earlier to look for parking.
