Nice place, food was ok, would not mind stopping in again. Prices are a tad high for the portions you get, but still a decent place to stop and grab a bite to eat.

Visited here to waste some time while in town. Staff was good, they offered some nice food options, and had lots of tv's. They also offer free wifi but we couldn't connect. We had a beer and some walleye fish finger appetizers. The beer was cold and well priced and the walleye was great. Recommend if you are wanting something... More

Stopped in on Friday night for dinner. The place was very busy. Found a table in the bar area. Quick service. Our appetizer and meal were delivered 2 minutes apart. The hot beef sandwich was huge and tasty.

We just attended the rehearsal dinner of my niece and her soon-to-be hubby. We were a VERY LARGE GROUP, and were comfortably seated in a large back room area. Served was endless salad bar, and a HUGE VARIETY, of finger foods that were delicious (cheese curds, chicken tenders, several flavors of boneless wings, deep fried pickles, and deep fried mac...

Joes has awesome food, but depending on the time of day or day of the week, you could wait a while for your food. I would give them 5 stars for the food and 3.5 stars for service. They are friendly, just slow. I wound not go there if your in a hurry and it's busy. If you have time,... More

The wait staff is excellent as well as the food. They have one of the better specials for the week and I have never been disappointed.

I saw a few previous comments about rude waitresses here but I'm not sure where they were. We ate there twice over the weekend and both waitresses couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. Super food and a super soup and salad bar. We can't wait to go back, definitely a place we want to return to.

Service was okay decided to have appetizers, cheese curds not good would definitely pass on those but the walleye fingers were awesome. Will definitely try them again.
