The slowest and rudest service you can imagine. Save you're time and do not stop here! We gave up and paid for the one drink we got within 45 minutes.

Living in South Haven I have been to Joe's probably 100 times. No kidding. 100 times. In all those times I have waited for my food maybe twice, and that was because they were very, very busy. They always seem to have 6-8 servers, and everyone is very casual and friendly. The bartenders are super. Nikki, Jimmie, and the young... More

We have eaten at Joe's every time we have visited South Haven on and off Season. We have always had great service including the last visit during the Winterfest. It was packed, with a band, locals everywhere and they still treated us great! We haven't tried anything other than their burgers and drinks but they are delicious. Looking forward to... More

Food is average, wait service is average, atmosphere is average. Location is pretty good, located right on the Black River with a third level outdoor seating area. Sports on multiple screens, drinking and socializing seems to be the agenda for most patrons.

Went in to grab a few drinks. We sat there for 20mins and no one came to take our orders. There was maybe 10 other people in the bar with at least 3 waiters. I would not recommend Joe's at all.

Stopped in with friends while on vacation. Parking was terrible-no way out except to back down the row and onto the busy street. Very loud inside. Waiter was ok. Fish sandwich was very mediocre. The "mild" wings were soaked in Frank's Hot Sauce. Nachos Supreme weren't.

There were four of us. One person ordered wings. Asked for mild. After eating one and questioned why they hot, was told by the server Ray's hot sauce was on the wings. She was not happy. I ordered the Nachos supreme. Very little ground beef on my Nachos and overcooked. Plenty of TVs but very loud. Parking is on the... More

Chose this place to watch the U of M game. Lots of TVs and about 30 beers on tap. Chicken wrap was quite good, as were the burgers. Typical sports bar fare. Enjoyed their coleslaw. Nice outdoor seating area with a view of the TVs inside.
