“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Walked here from the hotel for dinner, and sat at a table in the bar area. Server came over immediately, and was attentive and friendly. I ordered the prime rib, and was very pleased. The seasoning was wonderful, large portion. I recommend this place and will come back!

“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Being a local and a Tahoe Joe's member I get various coupons (free appetizer, dessert etc) - my favorites are the crab cake appetizers, the spring salad with Champagne dressing, and the Tahoe Joe's dinner for 2 where both parties get a choice of what they want to eat, but it comes with an appetizer and dessert for two. Staff is always friendly and prices reasonable. They are now open for lunch which is great.

Regional chain that started in Lake Tahoe - known for steaks and ribs, soups and salads, drinks.
Service generally good - food is acceptable and reasonable.

“GREAT PLACE FOR A BUSINESS LUNCH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

I am usually not a big fan of chain-type restaurants, but Tahoe Joe's is an exception. TJ's is a small chain, only 4 restaurants that I know of. But they have excellent food and a great atmosphere.
I have been to TJ's for dinner many times, but I also enjoy going for a business lunch meeting.
The place is roomy and the service is quick.
They have a steak salad that is fantastic, but their Joe's Steak sandwich is the best!
Give Joe's a try!

“Good place to take family for steak dinner.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here with my parents this evening. The service was a little slow, but not bad. The food was very good and the portions were large.
