    We made reservations for 3:30pm knowing it would be very busy. Indicated it was our Anniversary. Only a few tables taken and they set us at a booth in the bar. Typically I’m completely fine in the bar. But not on Valentines Day and our Anniversary with plenty of tables open. Food & Server was fantastic.

    I booked a reservation for a date night for Tahoe Joes through Open Table. I added the special request “Booth Please”. We arrived 5 minutes early for our reservation and they sat us right at 5:45pm, our reservation time. Only they sat us at a table with TONS of booths all around us. We decided that it was not a big deal to complain and that it was only a request. At 6:01pm, not one waiter/waitress had come to our table to greet us, ask for drinks or mention specials. We got up and left. Unfortunately we had never been here before and decided to try it based on its long standing at this location. We won’t be back and will stick to the restaurants that we are familiar with and I will not be recommending Tahoe Joes to anyone. Open Table is such an amazing and convenient app to use and book reservations on, I’m sad that one of the restaurants we booked on this app was a disappointment.

    Our hostess sitting could have been more aware of where we wanted to sit. I called for a window sit. He said he would write it down. Either he didn't our she didn't read. I think the later. Asked her for window and I got it. Great food

    My family as a party of 5 decided to dine on Friday, 12/29 to celebrate my mom's birthday. We were able to make reservations online about 30 minutes before getting to the restaurant and were seated within 5 minutes. The restaurant was cozy and festive. Our server was amazing! We really wish we would have caught her name but she was friendly, attentive, and quick. The food was delicious! Couldn't have asked for a better dinner out.

    Our reservation was for 4:30pm Christmas Eve for a party of four. The restaurant started filling up just about the time our food arrived. The food and service were (as always) in the very good to excellent range. Our waitress and other servers were very attentive to our iced tea refills and to-go boxes. Each time we go to Tahoe Joe's the waiting staff are friendly and make us feel welcome. By the time our check was presented, our waitress was hustling to get other guests' orders delivered. We understood that she was busy - it was only at that time she got a bit behind in processing our payment. It wasn't a big deal that we didn't get our paper receipt. We left in good spirits after a pleasant meal.

    The food was pretty good the service was pretty bad! We were put in a booth in the northeast corner of the restaurant should of asked for a bigger booth not busy we are all very tall and wasn’t much leg room. Our waitress took our order then left saying she would bring us some rolls and she didn’t come back until she brought our appetizer, before we could ask for utensils she was gone, did not come back until she brought our entree.

    We were a party of 6 with a couple of appetizers: calamari and onion rings. 3 orders each of Joe's Steak and Joe's Steak salad. We had a reservation, but were fairly smashed into one of their 4 ppl booths. They definitely had 6-ppl booths and were even available when we were seated, but didn't request to be moved since members of party were already seated. Appetizers were tasty, but not attractively presented. My salad was good, meat was cooked perfectly and was able to finish it no problem. Others at the table also remarked that theirs was also good. Wondered about dessert, but only had pie. They said they had just discontinued choc cake. We opted out of dessert.

    We had the Dinner for Two to celebrate Father’s Day! Our Jumbo Crab Cakes appetizer was delicious. We had the Tahoe Joe’s Steak & Prime Rib entrees. Both were cooked exactly medium rare as we ordered. The Pot Pie soup was really yummy as well as the Spring Greens salad,. It was so much food we had to take the Cherry Pie to go! Came home with a shopping bag of leftovers!

    Food was overpriced and not edible. Service was fine but they didn’t ask us why we didn’t eat any of the food. We hardly touched it. My mother in law wanted to treat us to lunch on Father’s Day so no one wanted to send their food back and have her feel like she picked a bad restaurant… but oh was the food bad. We had crab cakes and we could literally smell them before they put them down. They smelled super fishy and tasted frozen then reheated in the oven. The texture for that $18 appetizer was just terrible.

    We came with a party of ten with reservations. The restaurant was welcoming, our table was set up and everything was great. I rated everything a five and rated the food a four, it was good, fine but average. I feel like a better choice of bread on the table would go a long way. It was a first impression and it was meh 🫤. We were a noon group and it wasn’t super busy yet. We were served by Addison B and if I could give her a 10 I would. Engaging, helpful, but not hovering. Took pictures for us, kept drinks full and was just overall freakin nice. It was a very nice experience, I would definitely come again…large groups are hard and usually expensive. This was a pleasant experience that I would repeat and can afford.

    Our party of three made reservations through Open Table for early dinner dining the night before Mother’s Day. When we arrived the indoor and outdoor waiting areas were packed with people, as was the bar and patio dining areas. The hostess checked us in and said it would be about 15 minutes to be seated. Our server greeted us immediately upon seating and offered to take our meal selections right away, which we appreciated. Our appetizer, Campfire Railroad Shrimp, arrived shortly after our beverages and was as delicious as always. Before we could finish the appetizer, our soup and salads were delivered; my salad was missing the onions, but otherwise all was good. Our entrees arrived cooked precisely as ordered and tasted every bit as good as we’ve come to expect. We did request a second basket of rolls, and as has happened once before, the second basket was not the sourdough rolls…just basic white pull-apart rolls. The wait for our server to come back and pick up our check and return with the receipt was the only thing I might give a thumbs down on. Considering how busy the restaurant was and the ground our server was covering, I feel we had a very good and enjoyable experience, and won’t hesitate to dine there again in the near future. The manager and staff should be complimented on their effort to make one of the busiest dining days of the year run smoothly and turn what is often pure chaos for everyone into, again, an enjoyable and tasteful dining experience.

    Our order starters was the camp road shrimp, very very good! Also we had nachos, we had a big party with hungry men! My plate was the twin filet mignon it was cooked just right for me, very tender and tasty. The green beans are tender crisp, just right and the baked potato is always perfect. The waiter was absolutely the best, unfortunately I didn’t catch his name but he was very accommodating and polite. Will be going again for our next occasion, and be sure to try the cheesecake for dessert!
