We love this place. We visited this week when in town & had been there last time in town a couple of years ago & always remembered the great food, service & atmosphere. Mindy was our waitress this time & she was tremendous! Their new lunch trio is great! The buffalo chicken fingers are our favorite but the flatbread, bread... More

Joe's in Franklin, Mass. is an awesome local spot with terrific food and spectacular service! My friend and I enjoyed the Cure Burger and Black & Blue Burger with fries. Perfect for a Sunday lunch. The BBQ pork sliders appetizer and Chocolate cake for dessert rounded off this perfect experience. Restrooms were nice and clean and the staff friendly and... More

I bring my kids here frequently, and am always happy with the prices, service, and atmosphere. One of my kiddos has a number of anaphylactic allergies and all the staff here are fantastic about it. I never worry that he will have an accidental exposure. It's a great family friendly, in-town, restaurant.

Been here a few times and no complaints. Good food and drinks at reasonable price. Been here with friends but also a few times with colleagues after work.

I've been to Joe's 4 or 5 times. It's no big surprise - the bread is the best thing on the menu. Beers are cold and everyone is friendly - but the food just doesn't do it for me. It's subjective I know - but in my opinion if you are going to price yourself higher than an Applebees, or... More

Had a quick brunch before heading out for the day. Our server Henry was kind, attentive, professional, and polite. We've enjoyed visiting this location many times and it's especially enjoyable when we have Henry's service.
