JoJo's ShakeBAR is launching the most over the top dining experience in the midwest. JoJo’s Candy Land launches February 3rd through April 18th in a 4,000 sq ft outdoor heated pavilion decked out with the most outrageous decor and accompanied by JoJo’s insanely instagrammable food pairings. This incredible food and beverage experience will showcase JoJo's Over The Top Shakes, Biggie Hot Chocolates, Signature cocktails, and the best diner fare in the city.

Standard seating reservations will not be permitted to enter Candy Land or future pop up themes. Standard seating indoor reservations do not require a table charge.

Guests will be charged a $20 table fee upon arrival (NOT per person) for their outdoor reservation. This table fee will help our restaurant and staff offset additional expenses associated with outdoor dining and Covid-19 PPE and, of course, the Candy Land experience.

Dining experience will be limited to 90 minutes from your reservation start time.

Horrible will never go there again! Made reservations for 7pm for the candy land experience even received a call and email to confirm reservation. The host stated we had to wait 40 mins cause they were backed up why make reservations then. Then the host recommends inside and to go upstairs we go and it was fully booked so we landed on the main floor and both hosts had poor attitudes .

Great drinks, I like the peanut butter and jelly shot. I got a burger my date got a chopped salad both were good. We ate “outside” in the candy land tent. Very fun inside, there were about 15 kids treating the place like a playground, didn’t disrupt anything I liked to see everyone having fun. There was a 20$ entrance fee and an 18% added gratuity that is split between the staff, they said any extra tip goes to the server. Candy land was awesome and I had a great time, my server was great. They also moved my reservation when I called in late and they were cool about it.

We arrived and were seated very fast ! Server came to the table almost immediately once we sat down to take our orders & didn’t have a problem servicing us throughout the time we were there. Didn’t have to wait long for anything waiter kept refilling out water once it got low. Overall it was a good experience didn’t feel rushed, everything was in a timely manner , great setting, friendly and good customer service !

Our experience was wonderful, the environment was perfect! My daughters was so excited and full
of life during our visit. She even asked if we could live there lol. All the colors and candy props made this place feel like Candyland. Most of all the music was very appropriate and I’m my eyes the cherry on top. They even played Amanda Perez Candy Kisses one of my favorite songs.. The service was splendid food came so fast my daughter didn’t even have time to decide on a shake lol.

The food was mediocre and overpriced. The shakes were great and worth the indulgent price. It was disappointing that we made a reservation but couldn't sit in the main space which has the awesome ambience. Instead, we were taken upstairs to a pretty drab space. Part of the reason we went was the experience of the space.

We went here for my son's 5th birthday and it was perfect! He loved the Candyland theme and all of the great food and treats. We walked around the place at least 5 times looking at all the decorations, he was so excited! Definitely worth it for the kids, great adult beverages too.

Love this place! I wish I could go every week lol. Such a cute date spot and/or girls outing location. The shakes are just like the photos. You won't be disappointed. Great staff. They even have me a birthday shot because my birthday was the next day. Also family friendly... saw lots of kids there.

First the young women checking people in were so sweet and kind. They found a available 2 seater for my 6 year old and I since we arrived early, not only was a 2 seater available, it was available in the outside Candy Land area, which at the time when I made reservations was not available! So she and I were thrilled! They sat us and Christian was our waiter who couldn't have been more attentive! This young man made sure we were happy and comfortable the whole time we were there. We ordered the Birthday treat Shake and the smashed burger and waffle fries to share, which was more than enough for the 2 of us. Wow, the shake looked exactly as advertised and HUGE and the Burger was super yummy! Pardon the Pun but what a Treat this whole place and experience was!

Took my 11 year old daughter here for her birthday dinner and we sat in the candy land outside area. The service was great and all the staff were wonderful. The food was ok. I had the honey spicy chicken sandwick and i couldn't taste the honey and a very light hint of spice, it was very crispy thow and my daughter had the double smash burger and i guess she liked it. The best part was the shakes, they are pretty awesome. I wish there was a place closer to Wisconsin so i did have ro drive 1 1/2 hours to ger there. In my opinion its not worth the drive. My daughter almost seemed a little to old for the candy land area(11) But she liked it thats all that matters. So if u want to put a smile on your kids face bring them here. Also there's a bit of a walk from candy land to the bathrooms, yikes 😬.

The prices are too high!! You only get 5 wings for $10. It could’ve been at least 7-9 wings for that price. One of the shakes that I order a piece was missing on the cookie like someone took a bite before they gave it to us. My daughter couldn’t even eat the cookie. Honestly I wouldn’t recommend dining in just get the shake and that’s it.

The music could have been a bit softer. Younger kids running around, but put it should probably be up to the parents to control.
