Comfortable dining area with warm wait staff. Great place for a lunch meeting. Tasty sandwiches although Joe's is long known for the pasta dishes.

This is by any definition a local favorite. Servers know the clientele and make you feel at home. Sparkles served us so kudos to her for serving 7 & a baby quickly with no mistakes & even bringing out an extra order when a doggie bag went on the floor! (Above & Beyond). The food is good but I think... More

The food is good, the portions are generous and the service is efficient. Kudos for having toys & coloring books to keep the kids occupied while waiting for our dinner. Not a whole lot of options if you're trying to be careful about calories, but there is plenty to divide your entree up and take 1/2 home for lunch at... More

We are "regulars" at Joe's Inn, BonAir, frequenting about 3-5 xx a month. We have always loved coming to Joe's but lately, the food has been quite inconsistent with: 1) waiting a long time for wait service to greet us, bring water and take our order, 2) waiting too long for our food and then it coming out luke warm,...

Not very crowded but service was very slow and food arrived tepid. Asked waitress for dark toast, got it slightly warm with no indication it saw the toaster. I was disappointed as the wife and I frequent Joe's for dinner about once a month.

Not too crowded tonight...but it's early. French onion soup was great. Ribs were super. They have a sweet sauce....ample portion. Spaghetti.....what can you say???? Leftovers for days!!! If you need a smaller portion, go for the Alfred.

Joe's Inn is known for it's marinara sauce and large portions. You just can't eat it all. The Spaghetti a la Joe is one of our go to dishes. The baked spaghetti is slathered with cheese and is quite good. The service is fine but the staff is so busy they aren't overly friendly and chatty. The Sunday brunch is... More
