Met a friend for lunch. I love the veal picatta at Marin Joes. Great place for business lunch or just to meet friends Always get treated well there .
Ordered the joes special which was pretty good, but basically it was hamburger meat smashed up in a pile. Tasted good but i could make it myself in five minutes. I agree with other reviews that the service is lacking. Our watress didnt even say hi and introduce herself. We sat down she walked up and said "what do you... More
Marin Joe's used to be one of my Favorite Marin restaurants. I went there last week with a friend from out of town and was really disappointed. Had to wait 40 minutes in the bar. That part was fine as I only requested a club soda and it gave me a chance to catch up with my friend. Finally seated..... More
My husband and I stopped here on our trip north. I love trying new places that aren't big chain restaurants. This place was a MISTAKE though. We saw a ton of cars outside and when we arrived there seemed to be quite a bit of locals (both good signs usually). The decor is blah but not horrible, the waitstaff was... More
I've been going to Marin Joe's for the 26 years I've lived in Marin.

The plates are ample, and the prices are fair, and all... More
As I walked out of the restaurant I quipped to the manager, "My mother died last week and left me a large sum of money. Unfortunately for you not a damn dime will be spent in your restaurant as the arrogant surly wait staff is just beyond belief. They have their regulars who they openly have intimate conversations as they... More
Enjoyed it so much the first time around that we had to return. Great food, good service, nice ambience and well priced.
While visiting Marin with my young son, two old friends took me to Marin Joe's when I said that I had never been! WOW, I had a great time! I can see that they might get SUPER packed...as we were there on a Tuesday evening and it was pretty full. Service was swift and efficient. I ordered the liver with... More
Opened in the mid-20th century, Marin Joe's matches a leather-diner type atmosphere with an Italian oven and chef skills which are second to none. Burgers, spinach, wild rice, and scallops or shrimp brochette are our regular orders. Service is no-frills and efficient - intentionally somewhat aloof so don't expect sugary wait staff - that's not their deal - which also... More
