My wife and I joined some friends for dinner. We both had rib eyes. I thought they were just okay. They were cooked correctly. Service was good.

I had a decent meal when I visited Tahoe Joe's. The lunch menu looked extremely good and more varied than the dinner menu, but they don't serve the lunch menu after 2 PM. It's a bit pricey, considering it's a chain and not fine dining. I enjoyed my meal and would go back again. It seems like a family-friendly place... More

The last couple of times I have gone here, the quality seems to be dropping. Had family in from out of town and decided to go to Joe's. Kind of an embarrassing choice. Pretty lousy food for the money spent. None of the four plates received was worth praising. I don't think I'll go back.

We love Tahoe Joe's. The rib eye was great. We also ordered the shrimp & scallops. Caesar salad was awesome.

The food was good. I had the Joe's roasted chicken, flavorful & juicy. Side of mashed potatoes with skins & broccoli. Broccoli was bland, otherwise good meal. Sourdough bread rolls were HOT & delicious. Problem was my friend asked for a baked potato instead of her mashed potatoes that the waitress said she had a choice of. When the bill... More

We choose Tahoe Joe's this year. They did a very good job calling and confirming our reservations and being prepared for us when we... More

My husband & I really enjoyed our meal at Tahoe Joe's. He had a fabulous ribeye dinner with all the trimmings. Our waiter Joe gave us a free appetizer coupon he had in his pocket. We enjoyed the crab cakes...When came time for my husband's baked potato, Joe brought out all the toppings you could imagine. My husband was happy... More

Meat must have been thawed, meat was mushy. Ate most of steak, didn't finish. Too many people and couldn't get the attention of a server. :(

My food was great the clam chowder is awesome. The prime rib is to die for. Our server was on point and very friendly. I will definitely be back to wine and dine again.

I like the food here, have not had a bad steak yet. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Service had always been good. My only issue is they are very overpriced. There is another good steak house here that is more reasonable. I will go back but not as often as I would like due to the price.

Thank 1stranded2010
