Bummer! We have always liked eating at Joe's and both of the locations in Indianapolis were closed. Tried to access via internet and they were still listed as open.

Took a friend from out of the country who wanted some good fish. Disappointed in the selection, mostly shrimp dishes. She orders the salmon and I got fish and shrimp. We waited a very long time for our food. The waiter hasn't checked on us...More
