    Was expecting a fine dining experience but got an old established tourist restaurant whose time has passed it by. Heavy sides with over cooked meat. Starters came 2 minutes after our initial drinks. Asked to slow down the entree but it was obviously ready to be served so it was left under heat lamp and dried out…plate was super hot but food room temperature. Noise level high and décor outdated dark wood. I’m sure back in 1984 it was awesome but in 2024 it’s a relic.

    I consider Joe Fortes a special event treat. Food is so good but the prices have increased quite a bit. Happy hour prices a little high for what you get. Enjoyed tge sumner sangria. Service was amazing as always.

    Very busy and noisy but food was excellent. They have live music, which helped drown the customers loud voices a bit.

    We’ve been to Joe’s several times and almost always have Tim as a waiter and he is always the very best. I mean top level service possible. Food was also amazing too. Have the coffee cake!

    It’s one of those restaurants where you just enjoy being there, it fits. The people are wonderful, very friendly, very knowledgeable and they are always smiling. Great menu with so many options, both at the bar and table. We loved the appetizers and drinks at the bar, and people watching! Our food and drinks were equally wonderful at our table. But I think the real difference was the atmosphere and the employees that made our dinning experience so wonderful.
