When things go right at this place, it is good - good food, irresistible bread and fast service. However, unfortunately for me, it rarely goes right. The biggest problem is inconsistency - from the service to the bread to the food. Some of my coworkers like eating here so I go with them. I have had more trouble at this... More

My husband and I probably don't visit here as often as we should, but when we are in the mood for great New England clam chowder Joe's is the place to go. My husband is from New England and even he raves about Joe's chowder. I also love their Tartare Wontons, and their mussels were so large we had to... More

Food was pretty good....not like crazy good...but had a solid meal there. Got the pork chop and it was really good! Service was ok. All in all was an good meal out but nothing really special that some of the reviews make this place out to be. I may go there again but there are better places around. Can probably... More

Went on a Friday evening and was able to get an online reservation that afternoon. The staff is hard working and the food is consistently good. Excellent variety of American dishes along with pizza, sandwiches, etc. Prices are reasonable.

Not Your Average Joes Gaithersburg Kentlands. We had dinner here with a group of friends. We'version been here many times. Reasonably priced, not too big, quality food and service. Never disappoints. Creative cuisine especially for the money.

Food was good. Atmosphere is good (and much needed in the area). Servers tried (I think) to keep our party of 8's checks separated into 4 checks, but it just didn't happen, maybe because there was a shift change in the middle of our visit. After a 1/2 hour (no exaggeration) of back-and-forth, the manager intervened. Luckily, we're all seniors... More

Wonderful entree, but a problem with a piece of cardboard that was skillfully handled by the waiter and the manger.

Our waiter made it very clear right from the start that every meal could be tailored for tasted, allergies, and special needs. That was nice. We had a large group but was able to get a nice table for conversation and enjoy a terrific meal. Personally I had the mustard-crusted chicken and it was superb. Everyone at the table has... More

This restaurant serves consistently high quality, fresh, and delicious food. The menu is creative, the staff are always friendly and the prices for Washington, are surprisingly reasonable

Do NOT recommend for teams or large groups with individual checks. Food was average but the staff did a terrible job managing the large group with individual family checks. We were the last family to get our check and ended up being required to pay for all the random items that were not put on the correct family bill. No... More
