Joe's open's right at 5 and our tour was at 6:30. They do not take reservations so we reserved the party room for our group of 9. We had a great meal at a lovely venue.

Had a questionable experience, some time ago, at Josephs but decided to give them another try. Happy I did. Party of 8 and the service/meals/accommodations were terrific. I wish I could remember our server's name...she was the best. I'll be going back for sure.

This restaurant came highly recommended, and so I took a group of eight to supper here. Three of us got sick on the stomach afterward. Can't say for sure, and don't want to harm the reputation of a good spot, but I am sure something...More
