Served great meals and average meals. Guess it depends on the on duty Chef. Great beer selection and a friendly atmosphere. Nice patio to have dinner outside.

Went to Joe's for Easter Brunch. The food was good but was lacking in certain area's. The salad and desert station could have had more choices. The prime rib was excellent and so was the salmon.

We were there as part of a large group and that may have influenced both the service and the quality of the food. That said, it felt like we were in one of the cheap steakhouse chain restaurants. Nothing was bad, but nothing was memorable...More
