Very clean and COVID compliant afternoon family lunch. The only thing I didn’t like were the golden beets that replaced the strawberries in my usual Mona Lisa salad. Yuck! I thought they were pineapples. I wasn’t expecting that change in the menu and don’t think it makes sense. I felt safe and attended to.

Our waitress was amazing! She was very attentive and did not rush us. We ordered dessert and it was to die for! I got the the apple cinnamon sticks and my friend ordered the peanut butter thing. Soooo delicious!!! We will definitely be coming back!

Joe’s has been my very favorite restaurant in the area for many years. I had harvest Mac & cheese. I never order Mac & cheese unless my grandchildren are with me but it sounded different so I had to try. I was not disappointed. By far the best I’ve ever had.
Always happy with anything. Can always count on a great meal, great service and atmosphere.

Joe's has been a consistently good choice for years. Don’t let the name change fool you it is the same great place it has always been, with a creative menu but not trying too hard like some new restaurants.
