We were seated in the side room which is cramped and not a great atmosphere. I was willing to overlook because I was told the sushi here is good. It's just mediocre and we won't be back. I agree with the other reviews that this place is dirty and bathroom is gross.

This restaurant is resting on it's laurels of good sushi.......but sooner or later their pit of a restaurant is going to HAVE to have a makeover. It is not only run down but filthy. Do yourself a favor and don't use the restroom while there!

Came here via a recommendation and glad we did. We love quaint places like this and always love supporting local owners. The food and service was fast and excellent. My fiancé had the Nirvana roll and fried rice. I had the hibachi chicken and shrimp. It was all very good to taste and cooked perfectly! We would definitely make a... More

Our family will dine in and do take out from Joel's Grill quite often. The food is very good and consistent. We especially enjoy the Sushi rolls.

I came here with a friend upon his recommendation and it was delicious! The setup of the restaurant is a little confusing, as well as the menu, as there is alot of choices and it is a bit overwhelming. I had the chicken hibachi. It came with either a soup or a salad, which I had the salad with ginger... More

Excellent sushi in a very nice setting. Outside seating for those lazy afternoons. Only place we eat sushi in Mooresville. Very friendly and attentive staff.

The only thing keeping this place from getting one star is that the sushi is pretty good. The pad Thai tasted nothing like pad Thai - just noodles and over cooked vegetables with tiny shrimp in a sweet brown sauce and powdered eggs. I was ready to leave with just an average impression until I went to the restroom. DISGUSTING.... More

Joel's has a great vibe and it's got great Asian fusion. A real pearl for small town North Carolina. Food is always prepared fresh and service with a smile. My favorite is the Mother of All Soups - the broth is AMAZING - and the rolls are awesome too. Come her several times a month - always delish.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very inviting. It was busy and a lot was going on and for me I enjoy that. The meal was delivered very quickly to the table and the server was attentive with our drinks and making sure we had what we needed. For it being my first time there I was very happy with... More
