Salads are minuscule, pizza taste like out of the freezer. Fish is okay, not great. Good wine selection. Fun bar

We were trying to find a good restaurant on a late winter night in Orleans; not easy! But Joe's came through; they've been open all winter, 7 days a week, a blessing for us year rounders.
The meal was fabulous and the setting was cozy on a cold winter's night. We had a brussel sprout bruschetta which was out of this world, followed by an excellent caeser salad. The main course was a delicious butter milk battered fried chicken.

To top it off, our server was wonderful.

Great service, nice food, wonderful atmosphere and the night is just startling. The band is just warming up but we're sure it will be as great as everything else has been.

It's true the menu has changed, but all restaurants seem to go through this. If you are like us, and appreciate quality and innovation I would go back to Joe's. The crispy oysters were a divine starter and the duck with pineapple fried rice was delicate yet very flavorful. I agree the salads are on the small size, but if you are looking for a lighter fare for dinner, add the perfect hanger steak to the caesar salad ( excellent dressing on the side plz) and you have a great combination.
BTW the warm dinner rolls with herb butter are irresistible. Despite the restaurant being quite full, our server followed our request to pace our meal just the way we liked it. Prices seem to be in accord with other venues, and there's lots more we would like to try so we're going back to Joe's!

We went to Joe's Saturday night 2/8/14 after not going since summer. We were looking forward to some old favorites and were very disappointed to see menu was completely overhauled. Unique items such as their deep fried green beans and blue cheese burger sliders were gone. We were completely disappointed with the new menu. Service was marginal, took well longer than it should for a cup of soup and 3 eggrolls (35 min until they arrived) and over an hour before our two hamburgers made it to us. It's too bad they changed out the menu with the chef, we won't be back, $80 for two marginal burgers and some appetizers - totally not worth it.
