We have always loved coming to Joe's but lately, the food has been quite inconsistent with: 1) waiting a long time for wait service to greet us, bring water and take our order, 2) waiting too long for our food and then it coming out luke warm,...

Not very crowded but service was very slow and food arrived tepid. Asked waitress for dark toast, got it slightly warm with no indication it saw the toaster. I was disappointed as the wife and I frequent Joe's for dinner about once a month.

Not too crowded tonight...but it's early. French onion soup was great. Ribs were super. They have a sweet sauce....ample portion. Spaghetti.....what can you say???? Leftovers for days!!! If you need a smaller portion, go for the Alfred.

Joe's Inn is known for it's marinara sauce and large portions. You just can't eat it all. The Spaghetti a la Joe is one of our go to dishes. The baked spaghetti is slathered with cheese and is quite good. The service is fine but the staff is so busy they aren't overly friendly and chatty. The Sunday brunch is... More

The also have wonderful hot sandwiches - the Sailor is my favorite - and great burgers. They offer a portabella mushroom appetizer that is delicious and, with the addition of a... More

Have been to Joe's mostly because friends want to meet there but not the most exciting to the palate. The menu is large but everything is pretty average salads, pasta's and sandwiches.
