Had not been here in years and always had a nice experience, so came here for a business dinner. The place was not crowded so we easily found a seat. My colleague ordered the Chicken Fajita, which came out pipping hot and looked very good. I ordered the "Roasted chicken with greens" and it was not at all what I... More

Had lunch with my friend while shopping in the mall this week. As usual, Joe's was crowded lunch time & I was surprised we were able to get a table without a wait. The menu has enough choices for lunch between salads & burgers. We both decided to have a lunch special of Caesar salad topped with blackened Talapia, dressing... More

It is a good place. They have vegetarian options. I liked the place and the service. The capuccino wasn't very warm but it was ok.

It's hard to believe this is a chain restaurant. The food is fresh and the drinks are good. There is always a wait, however, put your name down and go shopping for a while or call ahead for reservations. My favorites are the clam chowder and Crazy Harry's Cobb Salad. They always have several special including meats and seafood. The... More

Joe's is located right in Short Hills Mall. There is often a wait so put your name down, walk around for a little and then enjoy! The restaurant is fun, warm, a little loud, but in a high energy way. The food selection is plentiful. The drinks are great! They have great soups, salads, sandwiches and definitely hamburgers! We have... More

We sat at the bar and had drinks and a burger after shopping. Diana took great care of us and then burgers were very good. Thanks again!

Good and quick food! The bread is delicious and the food is always good as well. Some items are hit and miss but most are good.

Our son used to wait tables there some 20 years ago and haven't been back in about 15 years. It was great then and it is great now. When my wife suggested we go there for lunch I was a little hesitant, since I wasn't into an expensive lunch. Well we went anyway and was I ever glad we did.... More

I always order the veggie roll up. It is great! I would definitely recommend it. The service is pretty good as well although kinda slow on a weekend.

Very good restaurant, the service was kind, fast by Fredrick. The food is OK, regular American typical menu. Had burgers with fries so can't judge other dishes. I liked the fact the owner let's the waiters to eat on the bar and not near some kind of dumpster out side but my only question, why don't they cover for each... More
