I've been tô Marin Joe's just a couple of times and each time the food was good. This time we decided to drop in for drinks and appetizers. I loved the live piano music and fire place burning while we had our quiet time together. It was so nice. I can't wait to go back.

It's our go to place in Marin. Every dish is good. Grilled steaks and fish always done perfect. Kids love meatball sandwiches. Scaloppine very good. Try the special Swiss chard not on menu. Best Caesar salad in Bay Area.

When you enter Marin Joe's you feel like you are in Cleveland or Baltimore in the late 50's. The menu is extensive and reminds you of an Italian steak house of that era. The food is excellent! The service is also great. Marin Joe's is always crowed because the food is so good. If you like good old fashioned comfort... More

We had dinner here last week end, and had a wonderful experience. A bit like a high-end diner with a bar. The roasted half chicken was excellent as was the cod. Professional service as well.

We first went to Marin Joe's over 40 years ago and have been back a few times when on vacation. As expected, they did not disappoint in the quality of service and food. This is a restaurant that has a huge local following and I would suggest reservations unless you eat early. Good food and excellent service. The wait staff... More

Although I'm a vegetarian I still love coming here. I love the old school atmosphere. It reminds me of restaurants I went to as a kid. Our favorite place to eat is at the counter where you can watch them cook. Also very good service. My hubby loves to eat meat of all kinds and has alway enjoyed his meal... More

This place has been popular since the 1960's Note: the decor has not changed since then... The  line out the door is not unusual. Friday night we noticed the place gets packed by The Regulars. The Bar is like Time Travel. Both decor and guests. + House Wine is $8.00 Our waiter grew up in SF and we all knew some... More

overcrowded, overpriced, decent food, but not exceptional...$34 for a basic cheeseburger & fries w/coke and coffee with pie for dessert. Add tip, and make it an even $40. I think that about says it all

If you lived in the Bay Area 30 years or so ago, ate at one of the several Joe's locations, liked it, and would like to return, run, don;t walk, to Marin Joe's. Although the relocated Original Joe's in downtown SF is no longer up to the old standard, Marin Joe's continues the tradition with nothing changed but the prices.... More
