I love all their wood grilled meats, can't beat that flavor. The food & atmosphere is truly great. My only complaint & I do, EVERY time, is the music, ITS TOO LOUD. Really people? You selling records, CD's or a place people can go & r e l a x & Enjoy a great meal?? I much prefer the latter!... More

Especially during the lunch and happy hour times, this place is a great bargain for the quality of food. They are always offering specials on-line, and if you join their mailing group, you get a lot of fantastic offers ( free apps, desserts etc.). If you crave a great steak, I have never been disappointed with the rib-eye and most... More

Not too bad, we had to send 2 steaks back because they weren't cooked to the proper temperature. The apps were general "run of the mill" steakhouse apps. We went a second time and they did a much better job with the food, but both times I've been there the service was excellent.

Very popular steakhouse. At first i was turned off as we cued for a long time to get a table. It was very noisy with everybody talking over the other. We were finally led to our table, and we proceeded to order, and I was overwhelmed at the prices! There was one thing on the menu that was within my... More

Used to love coming here for their happy hour while waiting for a movie to start. Last time we were here, all the tables in the happy hour section were either taken or haven't been cleared. A waiter told us they'll clear one. We stood there for over five minutes while two waitresses chatted among themselves doing nothing. We left... More

Excellent atmosphere, comfortable bar and outside seating, friendly and supportive staff. While Tahoe Joes is most noted for it's meat presentations, it does provide fish and salad choices. I had the Citrus Chicken Salad. It was both large and very tasty and I was able to eat it all. I say that was not my original reaction when seeing it... More

Love coming here for their happy hour to kill time waiting for the movie to start. Their margaritas are strong and their wings are yummy.
