I took my family up to NY City to see a show and found this place on the Broadway ticket site. From the minute we arrived the service was awful. It is very confusing to find the entrance, so we attempted to go into a door that looked liked the entrance, only to be told we needed to go downstairs and see ""the girl"". We walked back outside and downstairs, found ""the girl"" and then were taken back outside and walked back up the stairs to the main dinning room area. Mind you it was NY in Dec and very, very cold outside! We were asked by every person who worked there if we had a voucher or if we were full paying customers. We all ordered our meals from the full price menu and were still trying to have a good time despite the already rocky start of the evening. One order was a medium well steak which came out looking raw. We asked politely if the steak could be cooked a little longer and it was returned burnt to a crisp. The steak was not editable at that point. When we finally flagged down our waiter, or guy who took the order and then disappeared, and tried to explain to him that the meat was burnt, he said ""Well, that is what you get when you order steak Meduim Well"". Our request to have the steak cooked longer made it's way around to the rest of the staff, because after that, our table was either ignored or the staff was very short and rude when waiting on us. The other steak order was the 18 oz rib eye, which was nothing but 18 oz of fat and leather. My order was the chicken ceasar salad which was editable, but really nothing to brag about. I asked three times to have my drink refilled and it never was. We asked for more wine which never came. One person's original drink never came. Thank goodness there was an $8 bottle of water brought to the table when we arrived. The upshot of the evening was when the waiter took $5.00 off of our order for the steak that not editable. If you are thinking of trying Joe's, I would skip it! more

Broadway Joe's not-so-rave review 9/5/2007

I wish we had consulted the Citysearch reviews of this establishment prior to making reservations. I've just now read them and felt compelled to join Citysearch so that I may share our experience. Herewith, my first review. Upon being seated, the maitre'd inquired as to what tour bus (?) we had arrived on. Well. golly, heck, folks we live on LI. Does that qualify? That should have signalled our departure, but, alas, we decided to stay. We selected from the fixed price menu, which may or may not offer the same quality as the regular menu. My husband ordered the queen's cut prime rib - medium rare. It arrived medium rare. Although flavorful, it, unfortunately, had the consistency of shoe leather. He also ordered a side of rice pilaf, which tastewise, was unmemorable, save for the fact that it was presented barely warm. The chef should have taken his cue from rice-a-roni. Now, on to my lobster ravioli in pink sauce. Again, the pasta was lukewarm. The pink sauce overwhelmed the pasta, which left me wondering if, indeed, I had ordered lobster ravioli. Sadly, there is a particular Italian brand of ravioli (found only in your grocer's freezer) which was more flavorful and much less expensive. My mixed vegetables, however, were presented nicely as a little bouquet with a nice crunch. Our son ordered an appetizer only - a shrimp and avocado affair - again, nothing memorable. My husband selected chocolate ice cream for dessert which, we all agreed, was the best item served - frozen and chock full of chocolate pieces.. The cream caramel (flan) accompanying my meal tasted more like a heavy egg custard. Traditional flan is usually served in a small, shallow bowl. This was presented as a wedge of pie. What better way to acccommodate the ""tourists"" than to produce it en mass. \r Our family has been fortunate in experiencing some wonderful and memorable dining experiences across the US - sadly this is not one of them. more

Steaks were average 11/22/2006

Very overrated---no aspect other than convenience is worthy of mentioning. Neighboring eateries offer better food and service for less money. Don't be caught up in the hype!! Pros: Convenient to Times Square Cons: Just so many better places for the money more

Save your money and appetite for another restaurante 11/12/2006

This was the worst. The place smelled of body ordor. The staff was slow. The food was cold. I was naive enough to give a try even after seeing a huge insect crawling up the wall by our table. I regret staying. more

It was terrible! 2/9/2006

Eating at Broadway Joe's was the first time that I ordered a meal at a restaurant and couldn't eat it because it was disgusting. The steak was one large piece of fat and it came with vegetables with no taste. Plus, they charged restaurant row prices. more

I wouldn't go there again! 12/19/2005

I received a 20% coupon with a pair of theater tickets. That was the good part. The restaraunt looked like a holdover from the gangster 30's.To get to the rear dining room required a walk through part of the kitchen.My wife's scallops had such an off flavor she thought they may be spoiled.My prime sirloin steak was ordered medium and showed bloody & tasteless.A shrimp dish, 5 shrimp was subbed for the scallops with the upgrade in price included.Our waiter disappeared and I had to ask for the check.A real rip-off. Pros: Reservations required, Promptly seated Cons: No atmosphere, Bad food., Bad waiter more

User review by luckyonee 11/14/2005

I went to Joes Steakhouse this past weekend, hoping to enjoy a great meal with my boyfriend. All I can say is that the food with a disappointment. The steak was disgusting, I felt like I was eating in a dingy hole in the wall. I would not recommend this place to anyone. If youll looking for good food stay away from this place! more

Waste of Time & Money 7/12/2005

Thankfully we had a 20% discount coupon to soften the blow of this high-priced/ low-value restaurant. Portions were small, prices high, totally a la carte. Shrimp Scampi had 4 medium skinny shrimp over a cup of buttered spaghetti. Wait staff was surly. Room was reminisent of a rented hall at an Elks club or similar; we were tightly squeezed into a narrow room. Seven of us sought this place out after doing some web-surfing -- learned not to judge a book by its cover. After having great fun at a matinee and doing a little shopping, this experience put a damper on an otherwise fabulous day in the city. DON'T GO. Pros: Location Cons: Low Value, Ambience, Poor Service more

Not that bad 11/9/2003

Hey, maybe this Web site is doing some good on the retail end. Our group of 7 ate there in late Oct., and was seated promptly in a dining room, even. The service was very good, the food was better than average (though not quite worth the $$$$). Lots of Hirschfield (sp?) caricatures and diners don't seem to mind folks leaning over their tables to take a closer look. ... ( At least, no one stabbed me.) Would I go back? Maybe. But I wouldn't neccessarily say away, either. It's OK. Oh, by the way .... my NY strip sirloin was a good cut and cooked perfectly. Really tasty. more
