    My first time using Open Table reservation app. We arrived early to a crowded restaurant with alot of customers waiting but we were seated immediately. Service was amazing with great food wad not real happy with my side dish but overall and main dish very good meal. As it got a little later in the evening, it was very loud but that wsd customer noise.

    The food was great for it being the first time we went to the restaurant. The appetizer was great and the service was great from kate I believe that was her name but she was the best.

    Went there for a Valentines night dinner. Last minute reservation at 430pm. Greeted as we walked in, seated right away. Great service from start to finish! One baked potato was a bit undercooked, but was corrected right away. Other than that all of the food was as ordered and tasty. We had a great time!!!

    I’m glad I made a reservation. I have never seen a restaurant in Fresno so packed at 5:30PM, Friday night or not. Everyone was very happy with their meals. My ribeye was not worth the money. It was not a great cut. Our server was FANTASTIC and I am now in love with their creamy horseradish sauce. Overall a great experience, I just wish I didn’t get the ribeye.

    Enjoyed our experience at Tahoe Joe's again this visit. Food was very good, as usual, and they had - finally - replaced their broken blender in the bar, so my wife was able to order a Pina' Colada! Our waiter was pretty good, though he did get confused about salads he brought to our table as they belonged to other patrons. Also he was slightly tardy getting my wife's drink to our table. I continue to be upset about the new corporate owner Famous Dave's - decision in removing seafood entrees' from the offerings! TJ's has done these dishes so well in the past! A big shout-out to the manager - Cole - as he is very considerate, diligent, a hard worker, and he has seen to it we are taken care of every time we visit! His attention is truly appreciated!

    We went for lunch this visit and it was hard to get service to get seated. Our drinks took a long time and our appetizer didn’t come out until our lunch was served so we opted to not have it. Our server wasn’t very present and the restaurant was not packed by any means. Food was average, not what I expect from this place.

    My issues are still the same. I am sorry that new ownership has decided to take seafood entrees' off of Tahoe Joe's menu. I am totally, completely dissatisfied this move. And I have voiced my dissatisfaction to the manager on numerous visits. Having said that - multiple times now during these surveys - we did enjoy our meals, and our waiter - Ray - was super attentive. He could not have done a better job taking care of us. Also, the manager (Friday, Jan 5, 2024) - unfortunately I do not remember his name - has treated us as very valued diners every time we have eaten at Tahoe Joe's! Something that was a problem last Friday when we were last at TJ's has still not been remedied, however. Apparently, last week, the blender that the bar uses for blended drinks, broke down. As of last night, it has still not been replaced, though we were told it was on order. I do not know how a bar, as active as the bar at TJ's can get along with just one blender! Nor do I understand how this bar could function for at least a week - already - without one! I find that unacceptable - especially as my wife only orders pina coladas - which are best made with a blender. She was made a "regular" P/C last Friday, but did not find it to be a satisfactory substitute, so went with out last night. We were both disappointed, in this regard.

    It's nice that Tahoe Joe's offers the option of making reservations! It has been awhile since that has been available. I remember when they didn't and I wasn't impressed with that policy at all! Food was very good, waitress was also very nice, and fairly attentive. I am am totally not impressed they don't offer seafood entrees' anymore. I really enjoyed their presentation of halibut. That disappeared, and - supposedly - swordfish was taking it's place. Now they are "out of" swordfish, and this must be permanent as well. They were out of it last week also. Yes, it is supposed to be basically a steakhouse, but the other entrees' were my preference. Not happy with the current management/ownership at all!

    They ran out of baked potatoes and mashed potatoes by 6pm on Christmas eve. We had reservations at 6 and despite a mob scene we were seated by 6:20. They were not accepting walk-ins and no reservations past 6 pm - and still ran out so early. Disappointing and prices were not cheap. Waitstaff did the best they could

    Our waiter (Raymond) was excellent! We had several special requests and he remembered every one of them. He was very attentive and even filled the water glasses when empty which is something that doesn't happen very often any more. The food was also excellent!! Our entire party enjoyed the order they selected. The only issue is that they don't serve the birthday cheesecake any longer. They serve "birthday pie" (Baker's Square) which was good but really doesn't compare to the cheesecake and the piece was very small. We will definitely return over and over again!

    The food was fresh and delicious. The portion sizes were generous, and a good value for the dollar paid. The ambience was cozy and comfortable. The restaurant was clean inside and out.  The disappointment was in the service. Our server was only marginally, professional, and polite. She was not attentive or friendly.  The only thing she was good about refilling/asking, was if we wanted additional glasses of wine, which we did. Three out of four of us were celebrating birthdays, yet they were barely acknowledged. I was surprised that there wasn’t even a single dessert offered to our table to share

    I have been visiting this location for 10+ years. The food is consistently good and it’s a favorite ‘go-to’ restaurant. Servers can be hit or miss but largely are fine. I see managers pitching in where needed and that always says a lot about a restaurant.

    Had a problem upon receiving our bill. I had ordered my favorite alcoholic drink - a Harvey Wallbanger. The drink was listed as such on one line of the bill with a price of $8.75. I did order a second Harvey later on during the meal and that was listed as a Signature Harvey Wallbanger, with a price of $9.50. Now, anyone who has ever had this drink knows it has three ingredients: orange juice, vodka, and Galliano liquor. So I could not understand what happened between my first order, and my second to make this a "different" drink. I pointed this discrepancy out to the waitress, who took the bill, went to her register, and came back with a new bill. The drink was now listed as a "Signature Screwdriver" and the price was $9.50 for both. I am not sure how the drinks I ordered could have morphed into something so different from the first - which was named correctly - and suddenly become a more expensive drink, on the same night , and on the same bill. But I do NOT plan to visit this Tahoe Joe's anymore. I can find suitable dining much closed to home.

    We had a party of four and everyone was very pleased with their food. The menu has a good variety of choices too. We made reservations for 11:30AM, which was a good thing, as there were already guests waiting to be seated and we were seated immediately. It did take a little bit longer than I expected to actually have the food brought to the table, considering there weren't that many people seated yet. The servers were great though, very attentive. I would definitely eat there again.
