The outdoor area is great if you are comfortable with lots of bees. As a person with allergies, I felt nervous throughout. Next time will be inside.

Food was excellent! I had the mustard crusted chicken which came with mashed potatoes. I hate potatoes and I ate all of them! Everyone in the party enjoyed their meals. Not a plate left unclean.

Great server, so patient with us since we hadn’t seen each other for a while and we kept in chatting and not looking at the menu. Accommodated seating for us - we wanted to sit outside. And of course, our dinners were delicious.

I had a lovely lunch, outdoors, on their attractive patio. My waitress was very pleasant, friendly and attentive. I used my $15 off birthday meal coupon, and I enjoyed a great meal: Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Parmigiana on Fettuccini - perfection!

Rainy day and 4 retired friends met at Joe’s for lunch! I had requested a booth, we were thrilled we got one! Both our drink orders as well as our food arrived at reasonable times! Our choices were very good……we were also thankful we weren’t rushed, considering how busy the restaurant was!

Disappointing. As a frequent diner at Joe’s we both were very disappointed and from start to finish not up to Joe’s standards. Arriving to a mostly empty restaurant there was no hostess/host to seat us. Eventually a waitress seated us. We were placed at a table next to a mother with 2 young children who had either spilled or thrown French fries on the aisle between tables. No one picked them up until the mother did upon leaving although numerous staff people passed by. We ordered and waited and waited and waited while others arriving after us were served. Our food arrived and each of our dishes Chicken Caprese and Mona Lisa included overcooked dried out chicken. One would assume it was left being warmed when it should have been served. Irony is I believe there was a staff or team meeting going on next to us. We’ll be back but not immediately

First time been to this new restaurant. Took too long for waitress to attend to us, and bring our food. We arrived at 7, did not get any attention until 7:20. No menu, or offer for alcohol beverage. Food was quality! Waited for check way too long. Especially when there were several empty tables around us. We are very patient and understand this happen. I was a waitress in my younger days. This was not acceptable. Not sure we'd go back again.
