  • jack93013 reviewUsed to be a great place, then it was sold. New owner jumped food and liquor about 35%, pricing it too high for the quality of food. The "Joe's" style is no longer there, and it's like any other restaurant. I hope earnings increase as a result of this, but it will be without my patronage.

  •  I ordered the hot pastrami French Dip sandwich combo (w/fries & green salad). It was delish, sandwich & fries were hot, cool & crisp salad, everything tasted fresh. I had great customer service.

  •  Voted stiffest drink year after year by the Santa Barbara Independent which is very true. The strawberry shortcake & lemon drops are delish (;

  •  New owners. No longer Joes Cafe, now Joes of Santa Barbara. NOT the same Joes. Food quality and service lacking. Too bad. REALLY DISAPPOINTING This place used to be the best. Skip it! 

  •  Ditto (strong drinks). Enjoy.

  •  Worthless wait staff. Couldn't manage to get a simple diet coke or 2 waters no ice. The menu shown on here is not accurate. Don't waste your time or money.

  •  The french fries are really good!

    55555 by Graham L.

  •  The stiffest drink in town. People always ask me where they can get a good drink, and I always send them to Joe's. Can't help it - my grandfather used to hang on their wall.

    55555 by Rina M.

  •  Get a Jack sour. If you just need a small bite, get the homemade chips. Ask for ranch.

    55555 by Kimberly P.

  •  Most generous cocktails on State St. Go there for a pre-dinner drink.

    55555 by Dan P.

  •  old locals bar scene - food sub par - mac-n-cheese out of the box - come on! for a local bar, you'd be better off at the press room.
