I'm not sure why they're charging $10 to eat outdoors, it just feels like they're capitalizing on Covid. Also, beware the side(s) that normally come with a meal are extra here.

I did enjoy the festive pumpkin patch decor, the food was good and service was great, but this is more of an experience type place not really a regular dining spot. Maybe take your visiting friends here. For two people our bill was over $100.

I made a reservation and saw that for $10 a head you could get a pumpkin (we went to the pumpkin patch pop up specifically). We were never offered the option of the festive keepsake, which is not really that significant. I went to the host to tell them our party arrived for our reservation, they were not very polite and then told us there was a $10 charge for the table, which is fine, and could they take that from us now and then rudely saying "so even if you get cold it's non refundable." Before I handed them my card they said there was a wait, I stopped and asked how long the wait was, I wasn't willing to pay before I knew there was a wait and the approach they took was not very forth coming. I was told it would be 20-25 mins, even though we made a reservation in advance.

We waited, were sat at a table right next to the speakers and garbage bin. The shakes and hot chocolate were rather gimmicky in that they looked pretty but were not very tasty. Food was good and the wait staff were very nice.

Probably wouldn't go back.

We were on vacation and got an outdoor reservation for two, got their on time, and were immediately seated. Special time of the year….Halloween decorations! Loved the music mix, too.

I feel it comes down to presentation with the shakes more than quality especially when you take into account the end price of the bill, the $10 entry fee, and included gratuity. Don't get me wrong, I always tip 20% or more. However, I was glad my boyfriend pointed out that there was 18% gratuity already added to the bill.

Cute Halloween set up but charged $10 patio fee plus an 18% service charge for a party of 4. We spent $92 on 2 shakes, 2 sandwiches and onion rings?!

Good ambience and food however, we had to wait 15 mins even though we had a reservation. Also, an additional 10 dollar fee is not necessary in my opinion.

Food was excellent however the service was very poor. We wouldn't of tape tip them to 18% if it wasn't already on the bill automatically.

We arrived at JoJos on time for our reservation and were told we would have to wait 40 minutes before we could be seated but if we wanted to wait we’d have to immediately pay the $10 admission fee. Then we were told we could be sat immediately inside so we wait in a different line for that and we’re again told we would have to wait at least 30 minutes for a table. All of this occurred despite making a reservation over a week in advanced.

The server was great but the food came out too slow. The music inside was too loud. Should have better alternatives (than simply just having them stay outside in the rain) for those seated in the patio when there is bad weather.

We went to the outdoor patio that was decorated with Halloween. My kids and I loved it. We ordered the lasagna and honey fried chicken with a shake to finish. We were pleased with all the items and the outdoor patio and plan on returning.

I was looking forward to JoJos outdoor experience after seeing it on social media. I walked up to check in for my reservation and immediately got told about a $10 charge just to sit outside which i agreed to because i had already made the reservation and didn’t have much choice.

We then sat down and it was quite chilly with no heaters or anything outside. The server came took our order and the food came out in under 10 min which is good but also felt extremely rushed. Especially when you consider that the cheese on our loaded fries was not even melted underneath. The food was cold by the time it got to us and overall just not great.

I would recommend coming here with a jacket and just ordering drinks (al beit they are pricey!). Food isn’t worth it and felt like we were being shoved out the door and only stayed for 35 min!

Cool experience, probs won’t come back — could have gotten the same experience by just looking at it as i walked by!

I had originally made reservations for the pumpkin themed outdoor dining, but due to weather the outdoor area was shut down. They still accommodated our reservation and instead found us seating inside, which was greatly appreciated. Our server was incredibly personable and knowledgable and our food was wonderful and came very quickly. The indoor dining area has nice ambiance and they had Halloween movies from my childhood playing, so another huge plus. I'll definitely be back and also will/would suggest this to family and friends.

We have been waiting to visit for some time. The prices are quite high for the quality of food. The ambience and outdoor area which is changed for the appropriate seasons is very neat. However, we were not happy with the food quality for the prices. The burger was dried out and not flavorful. The appetizer of waffle cheese fries was good the shakes are very good and super cool! We would return for the shakes. However, we were disappointed in the entrees that we had at our visit for what we paid. The staff was very, very friendly, welcoming and full of personality. We would recommend to friends for the wide selection of shakes.

When we arrived we were told that if we wanted to eat outside, we had to pay a $10 table fee. Even if we sat inside and wanted to check things out outside, we had to pay $10. Really? Disappointed by that. And we had to pay that fee before we entered. That was never stated when making a reservation. Disappointed by outdoor decor. Not as many photo opps as I thought. Ground was wet and gourds on the ground. One customer stepped on one, it broke open and pieces flew at my leg. Shakes were OK. Pricey. We ordered an app, that was OK. When the bill came, our waitress told us that the 18% tip was already included. What?!?!? That wasn’t specified either. We ordered 3 shakes and mozzarella sticks. Our bill was $65. Add the $10 at the door, which brings it to $75. Won’t be going back.
