Always a great time at Joes. Tiffany at the bar is the best. She’s my go to. Haven’t been out much since covid but decided to eat out for once and they really make sure their guests are safe.

This was our best meal at Joe's Original and we are long time patrons of Joe's. We split the two specials and fell in love with both!

Overall, this is absolutely the best all around and most consistent restaurant in the south coast. Although my wife's meal came out at room temp (seafood) so wasn't to her liking, the wait staff and manager were very attentive to her reaction and gave her the meal for free. Considering she made no complaint nor intended too except she was asked when the waitress noticed she wasn't eating her meal. Overall, the drinks and apps and my meal were just wonderful!

Food and service were outstanding. Valentines Eve dinner we were looking forward to the special, Steak Diane, but unfortunately they had run out. Our Server was more then gracious and offered to let us wait while they got more in, approximately 35 mins, but we opted for the Steak Tips instead and were not disappointed! The staff were all hustling and the food was coming out quickly and done perfectly. Best experience yet at this restaurant.

No longer a part of the Not Your Average Joe's chain (hence the name change), but other than not being able to use their app, you wouldn't know it. The menu is still very similar and the classic Joe's bread and dip is still a staple.

My wife and I went to Joe's Original Kitchen and Bar and the food and service was excellent as always. The table spacing was good. There was a little close company at the hostess desk, due to the limited space in that area, but otherwise everything was fine.

Enjoyed the whole experience but was disappointed that my birthday certificate was not accepted because it was for Not Your Average Joe's and not Original Joe's. If I receive another one I will look at it more carefully.

I had to make reservations due to Covid. Once we arrived, the Covid protocols were stricter than what the state recommends. There was no place to wait indoors and it was a day that was close to zero degrees. Our server was OUTSTANDING, the food was very good, I will go back. That said, Covid protocols are required but when individual sites add protocols I find it silly and no responsible but hysterical. Those of us who choose to go out, dine-in, support local businesses should not have to jump through hoops- those who prefer to get delivery, take out, etc should do that. There needs to be some middle ground.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday and for buck a shuck oysters. The oysters were very clean and delicious. We all enjoyed our entrees. I had salmon......so good.

We got dessert to take home as we were too full. The kids LOVED death by chocolate cake and the carrot cake was incredible.

Did I mention the bread and oil? YUMMMM

Overall, was a great night out. The food was great and so was our waitress.
