My husband liked the ribs. MY fish was drenched in butter and too rich... nothing special. My cocktail was a bust.

We went here for the BOGO special (buy one entree get one free) from 5:30-6:30. The mahi and meatloaf were both solid and I would recommend both. Mai tai was average, a little on the sweet side. I would recommend this place if going for the special pricing. Without the 2 for 1 it is too pricey for what you get and better choices with similar prices like Nick's.

My wife and I read reviews about Joe's at the Wailea Tennis Club while looking for a place for a reasonably prced dinner and decided to give Joe's a try. Joe's is excellent. They serve fish or bekk tacos at the bar for $4 (Bar only) along with happy hour drinks. The tacos were fantastic. Excellent value. Beers were $3 and Margaritas $5. They also have an $18 all you can eat rib special which we did not try but if the ribs are anything like the beef in the taco is anything , it would be a great deal. The bartender (Steve?) was very friendly and made really good drinks. I highly recommend dinner at Joe's. We can't wait to go back.

Sue and I decided on Joe's at the last minute. We had been there about 4 or 5 years ago. She had Monchong with ferns, asparagus, and artichoke potatoes. I had a flat iron steak with a red wine shallot demi glaze and blue cheese potatoes. They were to die for. The Demi glaze was the best I have ever had (if you could only get it in a market). The atmosphere was fabulous (at the Wailea Tennis Center). I did not know that Joes Gannon was one of the members of the original Kingston Trio. The restaurant is packed with memorabilia. Great popular and nostalgic place for dinner!

My husband & I had dinner for the first time at Joe's just a few weeks ago. From the moment we walked in until we left, we felt like we were visiting friends! I learned about the painting with Joe and all of his friends - great artists we also enjoy. The staff was on top of everything - really there for just the right times when we needed anything. Just really friendly - the food was delicious, we had steaks/seafood between us... comfortable atmosphere and just delightful food prep/presentation... just one of our top spots in S. Maui now!
