Yesterday, my 1st time experience with JoJo's. There were 5 of us, ranging from 19 to 70, and we ALL had a delicious food experience. We tried three appetizers, wings, caprese, and a deep fried goat cheese with a spicy mayo sauce. All were delicious, especially the caprese. While we didn't have the entrees, they were reasonably priced and looked delicious. From the ice berg lettuce wedge with flank steak, to vegetable panini, and cheese steak (with very tender flank steak medium rare) to my 4 alarm burger, (medium) with habanero peppers ground into the burger, on a toasted roll with 1 large delicious tomato slice, fresh lettuce, and a special chef hot sauce, we enjoyed our restaurant experience. I eat out a lot, and can't remember when everyone in my party was happy with the food. Try it!
You'll love the art, brick walls, high ceilings, fresh tablecloths, and fresh flowers, with just the right music in the background and the wonderful food.

We chose JoJo's because the posted menu looked intriguing and the restaurant was pretty empty at 7-ish and we had a large party. They accommodated us right away and gave us the fantastic William as a waiter! Everything we had was wonderful. The grouper special with mango salsa had a nice combination of hot and sweet with perfectly cooked fish. The andouille is made by the chef and was outstanding. You have to try the devlied avocado! The prices for what you get were very reasonable--a great value and a lovely evening.

First of all, I have to say what I didn't like about JoJo's -- nothing! As soon as I walked in I felt like I was in an Irish pub. The brick walls with high tables and stools and music playing in the background, along with sports on the television. I was here four times in May 2014, and the service, the food, and the beer was outstanding every time!

Looking at the menu of JoJo's I was excited to try it. We came for lunch and were seated right away. Our waiter was prompt, personable and friendly. We ordered the fried asparagus for an appetizer , the sandwich of the day - a fried soft shell crab po boy and the chicken barbecue sandwich. The fried asparagus was pretty good for the most part as were the dipping sauces. What wasn't good was our was served with a piece of purple rubber band that had been cooked in the batter and was partially attached to the asparagus. I did tell our waiter and he basically laughed it off. I am very glad that I did see it and did not eat it- I could have easily choked on it. The fried crab shell sandwich was over battered and completely lost in taste between the batter and the bread - quite a disappointment. The chicken barbecue was unremarkable and tasted like it had been reheated several times. I felt our waiter dropped the ball in regards to the rubber band - the food was mediocre at best. We will not be back....

I had the unusual circumstance of eating in the same restaurant twice in one week. The first time my husband and I sat on the bar side. The atmosphere there was great, lively and casual.
Later in the week we met another couple on Saturday night in the dining room. Nicer, but not too stuffy. The beauty of the main dining room on Saturday was that we could enjoy the live music from the bar side, but still hear each other and enjoy our conversations without yelling.
Now for the food I must say the steak grinder sandwich ($12) was outstanding as was the steak salad ($16) . My only complaint was the Lump Crap Mac and Cheese ($18) which sounded so good, but when it arrived we couldn't find any crabmeat. It was tasty but for $18, it was way overpriced mac and cheese. Aside from the Mac and Cheese the prices were reasonable and everyone enjoyed their meals. I recommend this to couples or families with older kids after a day in lovely downtown Frederick.
