Always enjoy the Game Knuckle at Joes. Beer is good and the menu caters for all different tastes. Highly recommended for all visitors to Windhoek.

The first time I visited Joe's Beer House was in 2007. I went back several times after that as the food was absolutely stunning, and since it was always on business trips we always challenged our colleagues that the one who can finish the game knuckle do not have to pay the bill. So this year I decided to take... More

Joe's beerhouse is a novel and unique outing. The food, just like the decor, is a bit of an eclectic mix consisting of game, German and local fare. Worth going at least once.

I was blown away by the deco and the atmosphere that Joe's Beer House had to offer. In every corner there was a trinket that represented a piece of Namibian history and culture. A great experience for any traveller. Although I was let down by the slow service offered by the waitress, the food was worth the wait.

One of the best restaurants and bars in Windhoek. The food is good and reasonably priced for what you get. The bar is great to have some beers at. The decoration is amazing
