My family and I went to Joe's on a Saturday afternoon for a late lunch. I got the veggie breakfast, my son had the pulled pork sandwich, my husband the prime beef burger, and my daughter had a salad and chips. They have many gluten free and allergy free options which is wonderful for my family, but the food was... More

The worst customer service I have EVER experienced. We were greeted by an incredibly rude waitress who made it abundantly clear we were not welcome. Upon arrival (2pm) we had read the sign on the door to say that the restaurant was closing early so last orders were being taken by 2:15, with the intention of closing at 3pm. My... More

I think it's important readers know that the above "review" ( also the one before it, entitled "customer service so bad...) were posted by members of the public from the same group, who were quite reasonably dealt with at the door by a manager on the day. Far from being turned away out of hand, they were offered the opportunity... More

Joe's Bar & Grill had looked good from the outside, but we'd barely made it in the door when the appalling customer service had us heading back out again. We were treated to a disinterested waitress who made it crystal clear that she wasn't interested in our business. Conclusion: With plenty of eateries in Summertown to choose from, I would... More

Service was a little slow and a warm glass provided for a water, but can't complain otherwise. Nice atmosphere and staff very friendly. Food was fabulous

Dear Jenni Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. I have mentioned the warm glass scenario to bar staff. It is sometimes tricky, when we're busy and glasses are continually washed. However, great to hear the staff and food were fabulous! Rob ( owner ) More

This is a regular spot for us for breakfast when shopping in m&s as the food is always consistent, tasty and beautifully presented. The coffee's are lovely and the croissant perfect.

Good food Good service Good atmosphere Good portion sizes Only 1 negative: the choice of starters on the menu could be better, although the couple of starters we ordered & shared were tasty & good quality!

Thank Oranje31
Rob M, Owner at Joe's Bar & Grill, responded to this review

Hi Oranje31 Thanks for your kind review. I'm guessing you chose from the lunch menu, which does have a smaller choice of starters, purely because we run a full breakfast menu alongside it. The evening menu offers many more. Very pleased to hear you enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere! Kind Regards Rob ( owner ) More

We visited at around 17.45 to fit in with our travelling arrangements and obtained a table for two with no problem. We were pleasantly welcomed and our drinks order was taken promptly. The ambience was relaxing and the decor somewhat eclectic but interesting. Rock and roll icon photos, a couple of guitars on the walls and a beautiful 'crystal' chandelier.... More
