Good food. Good service. Good prices. Staff is friendly and accommodating even when busy. Food is consistent and good. Not anything you couldn't make at home with a bit of effort but really good tasting. Two dollar signs because it is basic for the price. Must try neighborhood spot.

We try to get to Joe's whenever we are in Richmond. They're always great and we love to food and the vibe here. Our dear friend Peggy was a waitress here 25 years ago and the place is just a great now as it was then. Gotta love consistency, longevity and dependability! When it's done this well, there is no need to change anything!

I really wanted to like this place going in, my two friends said the pasta is out of the world and some of the best they've had. When I got there it was hectic and a bit disorganized. Not the end of the world though since I can certainly understand that they can't be everywhere. We were seated relatively shortly. I'll start by saying their beer list is highly impressive. I'm big into craft beer and I was not disappointed. While they were out of my first choice, there was still plenty to choose from after. The problem was the food. I got a pizza figuring it was a bit chilly and if they made good pasta they would probably make good pizza as well. Wrong. The pizza was awful, worse than a lot of frozen pizzas. I only ended up eating a quarter of it and got rid of the rest. My two friends got a pasta that they split and said was very good. My girlfriend however got a grilled cheese sandwich which somehow had the cheese burnt. How hard is it to screw up a grilled cheese sandwich? The waitress was fine, though nothing special. The worst part was that I ended up feeling sick a few hours after. While I never got full food poisoning or anything, I certainly had my night ruined do to feeling ill. My girlfriend who had a slice of my pizza felt minor effects as well, though not as much as I did. I presume it was the pizza, though obviously have no way of proving that. Overall I'd come back for drinks, but would not eat here again.

Great service...showed up on a Sunday morning with a party of 14..folks in Town for a wedding. I even called ahead to tell them, but they person answering the phone said don't worry, we got you...the service was awesome, it was almost as if our group of 14 was a "two top" was great too...everyone was super impressed...big shout out to "Steve" (our waiter) and the kitchen for a job well done!

I go here once or twice a week because the food in incredible and affordable, the beer selection is the best in the Fan/ Museum District, and most of the staff is incredibly friendly and fast. Only one time out of the tons of times I have been here has a server been a little off. The food is consistent, which is a big deal since many places are so on and off.
