Really enjoyed our visit to Joe's. Fantastic food, really recommend the wings. Staff were lovely and accommodating, we arrived pretty close to closing time, but they made sure we had a good meal. The Louisiana ice tea is worth checking out too!

Joe's Southern Table & Bar is about all Deep South cooking and Southern hospitality, serving up soulful food from the states of Nashville, Tennessee and Kentucky. The result is an American food offering that looks beyond the burger, all impeccably and lovingly served in an authentic, exciting and unpretentious environment. Each of Joe's dishes have been developed from original recipes, having added a sophisticated edge to these home cooked favourites by using high quality ingredients, careful flavour paring and imaginative presentation. Expect signature and authentic recipes, such as gluten free fried chicken with lemon salt and tabasco honey, mac 'n' cheese, beef short rib and cornbread worthy of your Louisiana momma. Haven't got one? No fear. Joe's is the only momma you need
