Went to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it was the worst experience we’ve ever had a Joe’s. Ordered a drink and never got it. When a young lady an a manager in shorts, brought our food, I mentioned to cancel the drink. Manager walked away immediately and young lady offered to bring drink, but that was 50 minutes later. We noticed our server being the only one taking care of all tables outside and no help. Not blaming him at all, as he was fast to greet every single table and bring water and bread. The blame here is entirely bad management! No reason this poor young waiter had to be running around waiting on every single crowded table that afternoon. Only saw the manager who was wearing shorts about 1.5 hours later, when another manager was showing him how to turn on the outside heaters. I’m sure we weren’t the only party who noticed the bad service and not by our waiter, because he was pleasant, despite being all alone. By the time we got our food, it was almost time for our reservation to be done. Luckily we weren’t asked to rush to make room for others who had made reservations. Simply BAD MANAGEMENT!

First time eating inside here and I think due to the weather, quite crowded but spaced according to new rules. Food was very good.....we found the service to be spotty. It took longer than usual to get our meals, but worth the wait.

Lunch at Joe's was awesome. The weather was great and we ate outside. The way they set up the outside dining is so beautiful with flowers and nice separation between the restaurant and the parking. Great and comfortable tables and umbrellas! The food is always great at Joe's - fresh and tasty. Our server was wonderful - attentive, but not intrusive and totally responsive. Overall it was a great experience! You continue to be one of our most favorite restaurants! Thanks.

Hostess was very nice seating us 25 mins earlier then reservation. Waitress was cordial but seemed overwhelmed with amount of table served. Appetizer and food came out at the most Luke warm!!! Food was served by another waiter not the one we had for service! Had been sitting in kitchen awhile before we were served!! Would think again before making another visit on Friday or Saturday night!

Picnic tables make distancing difficult. Food is generally good, but I’ve had better there. Came out a bit cold as well. But the heaters were nice-and needed the evening were there.

We ate outside. Very nicely done with tables with umbrellas and beautiful plantings.
All 4 of us were very happy with our meals. It did rain a bit but a waiter came over to make sure the umbrella was covering us.

I dined with 2 other people and all 3 of us had an issue with our meal. I was served avocado that was dark brown. One person was served rice instead of mashed potatoes. When she told the server the server told her she was wrong, the menu proved that it should have been mashed. The 3rd person was missing an ingredient from her salad. The manager corrected these issues, but I find the past few times I've been there I always have an issue.
