Great place for outdoor dining. We were there on a warm sunny day but they have installed heaters on the patio for chilly nights.

Ventured out for the second time in recent weeks and this time to one of my faves Joey D’s. Have not been here in a bit.
Seated promptly. I did not note when I made the reservation that they had evening outdoor seating. Tables lit and there were heaters abound. We ate inside however. Tables spaced.
The wait staff was masked.
Hostess stand masked.
All kitchen help masked.
Bartenders ... noted from a distance ... masked.
There was a guy selling cologne in the men’s room and he too was masked. Ok.... no man hawking cologne but if you remember the scene from Doc Hollywood, when Woody Harrelson quips “there is a man selling after shave in the men’s room, what’s up with that” you get the comment.
Couple of notes about the salads. The house salad with the warm bacon dressing is the bomb. I fought it for years but having tasted it can’t possibly justify that stance. The Caesar? Many say it has too much dressing. I am a guy that likes a little salad with my dressing so bring it on. Their Caesar is one of my favorites in town. Over dressed? I think not!
Ordered the bone in ribeye. I like it when the wait staff assumes you have never stepped foot in there and explains that they serve their steaks “Pittsburgh Style” meaning they char them under the broiler. Mine came out a perfect medium. Loaded potatoes were well executed. But how can you not execute a baked potato well. Ok, would have liked just a dollip more of sour cream but what the hell.
One of the things about the scanned menus is that the wine lists are a little hard to read. The waitress, Esther, noted that and offered a full paper menu. Friends of ours went there a little while back and sent me a picture of a reasonably priced bottle of Malbec but I could not find it on the scanned menu.
Didn’t want Malbec but wanted bottle choices and settled on a really good Oregon Pinot Noir.
Joey D’s has its detractors. I am not and have never been one of them. There are a few places where I have personally never had bad

I’ve been to Joey D’s plenty of times. For some reason, the experience was unpleasant this time. They got my order wrong and brought out raw steak. Maybe they had a bad day.

Food and service was GREAT! The steaks were tender and well seasoned. The only issue that I would like to point out is that social distancing was not in place for the tables. Patrons were seated at tables directly beside each other, rather than having an empty table in-between...like they do have in place for the booths. Other than that, everything else was superb and we will surely be back

Food was good but service was not the best. I received my entree before my soup, and they didn’t really care. Husband also received bacon on his baked potato after specifically requesting to exclude it. It just seemed to really take a long time for each item to be delivered to the table. The waiter did give my husband a free birthday dessert so that was appreciated.

I have been going there for many years but have not been for a while. I went Partially because they where having a Veterans Day promotion. Very nice of them to offer that. It was definitely busy. That may have contributed to my disappointment. We had a great table and initially the service was good but it got worse after I sent back an awful glass of terrible wine only to have it replaced with an equally awful glass of a different (I think )wine. My salad was more of lettuce soup as it was over dressed. The Entrée was wonderful. Great steak. I had to flag down my waiter to get a second martini only to be delivered in a half filled champagne glass. Never asked about dessert or mentioned my birthday. I have been there many times Without a promotion and that is not the only reason I went But I will be hard-pressed to go again It would have nice if we would be asked if we cared for dessert
I would like to add I very seldom offer a review

Joey D’s was our default selection, as all our preferred steak restaurants were booked. Our experience was not memorable. Jermaine was our waiter, and her was nice. He suggested the honey butter croissants, which were good. They were more like twisted yeast rolls than light, flaky croissants.

The food tasted okay, but our orders were all mixed up. My sweetie couldn’t get the steak we came there to get & his 2nd choice wasn’t cooked to his preference & was returned. The replacement steak was delicious though. Overall, our experience was okay.

Special thanks to Juvenel for being so attentive and making us feel so comfortable while we enjoyed our lunch and had business discussions. Excellent food recommendations as well!
Thank you to the whole team and see you again soon.

All was great with the exception of the food. I ordered the bone in ribeye which cam out extremely salty. I was unable to eat it. They prepared a new steak with no salt as I requested. My husband had wings that were so bland no seasoning at all. If some of the salt added to the first steak was split between our food, all would have been perfect.

I do appreciate the server and the manager who rectified the issue immediately.

The food was pretty good but the service was amazing. I had the prime rib and it was so so and my girl had the beef ribs and they were pretty good. Thee oysters were really good as an appetizer though :) I would come back just to try out some of the other food.

I have been going to Joey D's for over 20 years. Last night's experience was by far not the typical experience. I will give them the benefit of the doubt. A few things... We did not have a server, the bartender and whoever else we could catch waited on us. Salad came out without any dressing. We were served the wrong appetizer, the correct one came out but was sub par. Chargrilled Oysters were piece of oysters. Not one whole oyster. I sent them back and they were removed from our bill. Crab fingers we so full of garlic and spices you couldn't taste the crab.. and they had a funny smell. We did not come close to finishing. Martini was weak. Like I said it was sub par, may have been having a bad night but with so many amazing restaurants in the area, I think I will spread the love next time instead of automatically choosing Joey D's.

Everything was good except our server. Erika seemed like she couldn’t get rid of us soon enough. After waiting for her to make her first stop by the table for over 10 minutes we were hoping things would get better. They did not. After we finished our meal and were discussing dessert Erika dropped off our check so we assumed were done and left

We arrived before the dinner crowd and was seated immediately in a social distanced section of the restaurant. We ordered the chargrilled oysters, garlic crab claws and onion loaf appetizers. The chargrilled oysters were disappointing. The only thing that was chargrilled was the cheese. The shells were removed and 6 oysters placed in ceramic dish covered with a large amount of cheese, maybe some garlic and placed in oven or on top of grill to melt the cheese. The other appetizers were good along with our entrees. My ribeye with garlic butter was delicious. The service and ambience was top notch.
