I love going to Joe’s! Their salads are great. I get either the Cobb or the Waldorf. I’ve had other things there but whatever you get you really won’t be disappointed. And their bread with the oil is a must!

Ordered chicken Cesar salad-chicken was bland .. waitress brought the bill without asking if we wanted any coffee/dessert which by the way we did. And no I didn’t order … maybe she was having a bad day..

The service was awesome, the food was great, the only issue my wife and I had was we were sitting at the table closest to the entrance. Every time the door opened we could feel a cold rush of air. We got there just before it got busy on a Saturday so the door opened continuously throughout our meal. For now on, we'll be requesting a booth or a table away from the door.

The food was mostly good as usual, however, I ordered steak tips medium rare and got them WELL DONE and luke warm. Three of the four of us received luke warm food, though it was very good-just not hot. Menu is excellent and the service was very good. We have been a number of times and this was the first time I couldn't give it all excellents.

I thoroughly enjoy my dining experience at Joe's Original Kitchen & Bar. The food is always interesting & delicious & the wait staff is kind, knowledgeable & attentive. I would prefer a lower sound level but it is not so loud as to prevent conversation at your table or booth. I come to Joe's when I want to treat myself.

On a busy Saturday night, place was hopping! I was so happy I’d made reservations early in week on open table….I requested a booth, and was thrilled to get one! We were catching up with friends who used to live across the street from us! All of us had something different and as per usual, we were pleased with what we ordered! Waitress was very nice, food arrived in orderly fashion, and we weren’t rushed to leave! You can’t go wrong at this place!

Best medium rare burger l ever ate! The server made sure it would suit me by asking the grill cook before l ordered. If you are on a special restricted diet they will accommodate your needs here. By all means try Original Joe's for great food, reasonable prices, and indoor or outdoor seating during the good weather! I will definitely come back the next time l come to Dartmouth.
