    We were celebrating 2 birthdays so it was nice to have the back room with more privacy. Mercy was a great waitress and fulfilled our needs. She turned down the music in our room so we could socialize better and was there when we needed anything.

    We’ve been wanting to try Little Joe’s for a while now. We had an 8:30 reservation on a Saturday night so it was no surprise that they were busy. After the hostess sat us, we didn’t get greeted or offered drinks from our server until 10-15 min later. However, we were given bread in passing from another server. Again, no biggie since it was the middle of dinner rush with date night and big parties celebrating special occasions. All in all, Little Joe’s was “okay”. We frequently eat at YaYa’s (another steak house) but thought we’d try Little Joe’s since their prices were a bit lower. I was disappointed in the lack of veggie sides as it’s mostly starches but they do offer a good amount of salads. I will say that their onion rings are one of the best I’ve had, with a nice crunch and a perfect thickness of coated batter. My ribeye was cooked how I ordered and it was a good steak, but nothing special stood out to me about it. I would probably only go back to Little Joe’s if I was invited to a friend or family dinner.

    The food was sub par for what was being offered. We ended up taking everything hoke in which I reheated and added seasoning to have it taste better.

    This is a steak house, so the only excellent dish was the steak. The "music" was too loud. When the restaurant was fully occupied, I think everyone raised their voice to compete with the "music". The manager was nice to ask how everything was, and managed the issue that we brought up properly and politely.

    The food was amazing. Our server he wasn’t great. A lot of the servers don’t use deodorant or fragrance and they smell a little sour. My mother was given a cup that had a lip stick stain on it which was really gross. But the food was the highlight of the night

    Wasn’t really sure why the table that my girlfriend and I were sitting at couldn’t order off of the happy hour menu, but the table not even 2 feet from us was able to. Wish there could’ve been a prior notification or know ahead of some sort. Other than that, place is great!

    Took a little long to get the tomahawk cooked. Waited about 20 min between appetizers and the entree's. By then I was kind of not hungry at the point. Other than that, place was great.

    Waitstaff were a little absent minded and required repeating requests to be filled. For God's sake, turn the music down - music selection is good but too damn loud - impossible to have a conversation with folks at the same table.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend. The hostess was pleasant and friendly so initial impression was great! Once we were seated it took a while to take our orders abs even longer to get our food. One of the servers was avoiding eye contact. We preferred to be keep posted on the reason for the long delay vice avoiding us. When our food finally arrived they had one order wrong and the food was salty. Definitely a one and done!

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday at Little Joe's Steakhouse last night. Our food server (Nicole) was efficient and very courteous. The food was excellent, as always. The only negative was that the hostess seated us at the far end of the restaurant, at the closest table to the kitchen even though there were many open tables. Little Joe's is a very nice, romantic restaurant, and we had always been seated at a better table. Not sure why she put us all the way in the back, right outside the kitchen doors with the wait staff running in and out of the kitchen all night when there were many other tables. Overall it was a good evening because my husband and I chose to focus on the delicious food and not the horrible table location.

    I have gone to many steakhouses and this was one that I did not enjoy. It is very low scale. The tables are old tables from another restaurant that you can actually tell. I asked multiple times for more rolls at the table and never received them. They mixed up our orders when the food was brought to the table and I had to send my drinks back because they were wrong. It may be better in the future but it was not what I expected it to be especially a steakhouse.
