JoJo's Restaurant & Tap House
My husband and I just love this place. They have good service and the food is amazing!!
We had a party of 4 and ordered pork spring rolls, crab jalapeno poppers, chicken, chicken pasta, lemongrass chicken stew and short ribs. All were good. Had almond cake and creme brulee for dessert, also good. Our waiter was very good as well.
Came from out of town, we were very late for our reservation but when we walked the person at the door greeted us and smiled. They held our table! I cannot say enough good things about the service, the food and my overall experience. If you don't try this place you are truly missing out.
Was really looking forward to JoJo's with all the great reviews. The cranberry orange sangria was very good. Ordered the short ribs and was really disappointed. It literally tasted like reheated pot roast, which is fine if you're home and throwing some lunch together for yourself. But I wouldn't serve it to anyone. The carrots were kind of cold, mashed potatoes were very good. The waiter was very pleasant , but his check on us was so fast when he asked how our meals were, that I couldn't turn around fast enough to let him know I wasn't thrilled. My husband ate the rest of it. He was pretty hungry because he got the lamb chops which consisted of literally 4 bites of food. He was done in 5 minutes. We didn't stay for dessert, which might be too bad, because it sounded good, but I didn't feel like giving any more money to JoJo's. Oh well. We won't be back.
From the minute we walked in we were taken care of with great care the food was awesome in his fear was great and it was an extremely busy Friday night. Nick our server was wonderful I have to write him as one of the top servers ever had wait on us!
Thanks for dining with us this past Friday. We know it can be unnerving to walk in to restaurant on a super busy night, and we're happy to hear that we did not disappoint! We'll tell Nick about your review, and we hope that you'll be back soon to see him and the rest of our staff. Cheers!
Really enjoyed the experience here! Drinks were awesome and food was very good too!
We appreciate your business, and thank you for leaving a review! Cheers!
The blue cheese and bacon burger was one of the best burgers I've ever had!
The date & onion spread and house made steak sauce definitely give blue cheese burger that extra little oomph you're tasting, we're glad you enjoyed it!
Great place for dinner before a show at the Weinberg. We were lucky enough to park on the street and the walk to the theater was minimal. Great food!
Thanks for visiting us before your show at the Weinberg. Don't forget to show your server your tickets or pre-show email every time you're stopping in with us before the show for a 10% discount off your entire check!
Great food and the service was outstanding. Prices are a bit high, but Well worth a trip to Frederick , MD!🤗
Thanks for leaving a review! We source quality ingredients from vendors as locally as we can, and we're thrilled that you loved the food and service :)
We always, always enjoy JoJos....not so much this time. You had the main dining room closed for a party. I believe the party pushed your staff past their ability to provide the normally excellent service. The staff was hurried, and the service was sporadic. There was just too many people in the building, which destroyed the usual great ambiance. Had I known there was a party scheduled that night, I would have made my reservation for a different night.
Thank you for leaving a review. We appreciate your feedback and will definitely take your experience in to consideration when booking private events. We apologize that you your experience wasn't up to our standards during your visit, and will make sure that doesn't happen again during future events.
Superb evening! Wonderful service, tasty cocktails, great beer selection, delicious food.
Thanks for leaving such an awesome review! Hope to have you back again soon, cheers!
Food was outstanding with a wide choice of entrees. Very loud space so it was difficult to hear.
Thanks for leaving a review! We're thrilled that you found the food outstanding, and we hope to have you back again soon :)
JoJo's is our "go-to" for dinner when we are in Frederick, but we had the opportunity to enjoy brunch on Sunday and it was wonderful. The menu definitely has something for everyone but we took advantage of the specials - the raspberry pancakes and the spinach/goat cheese omelette. So much food, but oh so good! Special thanks to our server Cody, who always makes us feel welcome when we come in.
Thanks for switching it up and trying us out for brunch!! We're happy that you and your group were happy with the choice, and we've passed along your review to Cody and the rest of our staff. JoJo's serves up brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 11-4pm for the next time you're in the mood ;)
We went for a Sunday Brunch and it was a really great experience. Our server (Ben) was wonderful, he made some great recommendations, very quick service, and a really nice guy! The food was excellent and the atmosphere had a very positive, happy vibe!
We appreciate your review, and your visit during brunch! We'll definitely pass along your compliments to Ben and the rest of our staff. We hope that you'll be able to make it back in for brunch (on Saturday or Sunday) again soon!
We came out for our Anniversary and ate on the dining side.
The service was too notch,Maria took amazing care of us and the food was well presented and tasted amazing
Thanks for spending your special day with us! We've passed along your compliments to Maria and our kitchen staff, and we hope to have you back again soon!
Had a wonderful evening with friends at JoJos!! Great place and wonderful service!!
We appreciate you leaving a review! We hope to have you and your friends back again soon :)
we were seated at a table of our request. The server was outstanding! Polite, knowledgeable and professionals. As usual the food was great!
Thanks for leaving a review! We're glad that we were able to seat you at the table you requested, and that everything from service to food was top tier. Hope to have you back again soon!
Excellent meal! We hadn't been to JoJo's in a while and we will make a point to come back soon.
Thank you! We hope you'll be able to make it back again sooner than later, don't be a stranger ;)
Once upon a time this was my favorite restaurant in Frederick. I went there exclusively. But then variation crept in with the quality of the food. So I stopped going for about a year. Then I went back. It was decent but not to the former caliber. I tried other places in town. I went back last week and ordered the Szechuan Steak special cooked medium. It came back closer to medium well. Every bite was coated in black pepper. That ruined an otherwise perfectly good steak. I won't be back for a while.
If you have not read my reviews then I will also remind you that the staff turnover there is very high. I do not know why. In the beginning this did not make a difference to me as the staff was always (and still is) attentive and fairly well trained. But these kinds of variations are signs of deeper issues to me.
And that's a shame because we got off to such a great start. I loved taking clients there. I hope things improve.
Hi Larry. We're sorry to read that you've been disappointed in your most recent visits with us, and we do hope that you'll give us another shot in the future. We've passed along your entire review to our chef.
JoJo's is by far our favorite downtown Frederick Restaurant. Every item we've ordered on the menu is done with care and perfection. We have never been disappointed each time we have patronized JoJo's. Their menu has enormous variety and their specials are always intriguing. I ordered the 'Land & Sea' (chicken and crab cake, which is, to me, the best of both worlds. My wife had the Scallops, which she has ordered three times and savors each time. We'd go back for any occasion - this happened to be for her birthday. We may have to create more times to celebrate or start making them up!
Good thing we're open 7 days a week so that you never miss a chance to celebrate with us ;) Thanks for making us your go too! Our staff is happy to be able serve you and your wife whenever you visit, cheers!
Our server took care our table in an excellent fashion.
We're happy to hear that you were satisfied with your server! Thanks for leaving a review :)
Excellent food and drink specials for Taco Tuesday.
Thanks for Taco Tuesdaying with us, and leaving a review about it! Our tacos and margaritas aren't going anywhere, so we hope to see you soon :)
Went for lunch with wife and teenage son. Diverse menu of interesting twists of American classics. A little pricey but quality ingredients and great taste. Service excellent. Strongly recommend.
We appreciate your review! Hope to have you and your wife and son back to dine with us again soon :)
Delicious ricotta filled homemade ravioli with sautéed veggies- perfection!! And yummy curried veggies with rice,
Attentive waiter. We will be back soon!
Thank you!! We'll definitely pass along your compliments to the chef, and we hope to have you back again soon :)
Good food. Lots of different beers. Can get expensive or you can get sandwiches for a little less. We’ve gone here several times and overall it’s a nice place to have dinner
Thank you for leaving a review! And you're absolutely right, we have options ranging from burgers and tacos, to steak and scallops. There's a little something on our menu for every appetite and budget :)
This was exactly what we were looking for being our first night in Frederick for my birthday weekend. We were tired and didn't know exactly what we wanted but wanted it to be light and with the variety of their menu we found the perfect food for the evening. Will definitely be back, and loved spending my birthday weekend in Frederick!
Thanks for leaving a review, and we hope that your birthday weekend was one to remember!! Next time you're in town for the weekend you might be interested in trying our brunch which is available Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm.
Food was very good, service pleasant, if a tad slow, and the ambiance was charming
We appreciate your review! Hopefully you'll have a chance to dine with us again soon :)
This is a great place to eat in downtown Frederick. Good food, service and ambiance. It is a little loud in the main dining room which is hard to hear your conversation with your guest. Otherwise very good.
Thanks for leaving a review. We're working on different options to bring the noise level down in the main dining room, but we're happy that other than this you've been able to enjoy your time spent with us!
We typically order JoJo's tacos which are great! My favorite are the shrimp; best shrimp I think I've ever had. Good beer selection, good service. Noisy but it's a popular place. There's a bar on one side and a restaurant on the other and we were in the restaurant. I think Tuesday's are taco specials but they always seem to be on the menu too.
Thank you! We're so happy that you enjoy the tacos. We always have the shrimp, mahi, and pork belly tacos on the menu but the rest of our options are Taco Tuesday exclusive :) Hope to have you back again soon!
Delicious as always! Nothing beats the window seat!!
Thank you! We've always thought it to be the best seat in town ;)
My girlfriend and I chose Jojo’s because we had searched their beer menu and they had a great selection of (sour) beers she wanted to try. She got a flight of three ounce beers, we shared fried pickles which were very good, and got shrimp and tuna tacos. Our waitress was very nice and came by often to refill our waters and to see how everything tasted. Highly recommend.
We're happy to read that you and your girlfriend enjoyed our beer selection and food. Our tap list is constantly changing, we hope you'll be able to stop in again to try something different soon, cheers!
Good food. Nice variety of choices on the menu. Professional, polite, attentive service. I would definitely dine there again.
We appreciate you leaving a review and we'll definitely pass along your compliments to our staff :) Hope to have you back again soon!
Great food and very attentive waitress. Very loud. We’ve eaten there many times and you can count on good food and service
Thanks for coming back time after time :) We know it can be noisy depending on the night, but we sure hope that doesn't keep you away from the good food and service!
We had an incredible meal/brunch and our server Molly was the best. Everyone's meal was fantastic and lots of food !
Thanks for brunching with us. We're happy that everyone's meal was fantastic! We can't wait to have you back again soon :)
We’ve eaten at Jojos several times and always loved the food. Unfortunately, this visit was disappointing. We were craving their Ahi Poke and that is specifically why we decided to go. The tuna itself was okay, but the avocados were rock hard. I ordered the bronzini with crab imperial special, but I couldn’t tell you how it was because my first bite was nothing but bones and shell. It cut the roof of my mouth. The staff was very understanding when they saw I was struggling and immediately offered to bring me something else. I opted for the shrimp pasta, which was good. My husbands dish, East West I think, was ok but nothing special. For the issue with the bronzini, we were comped a glass of wine. Everyone was kind and checked in on us to make sure everything else was ok, which was nice, but I thought after cutting my mouth on a forkful of bones and shell, a single glass of wine wasn’t much of a compensation. I hope this was just an off night at Jojo’s as it has always been one of our favorite places in Frederick.
We appreciate you leaving a review, and we're very sorry to read that your last visit wasn't up to par with the rest. We've gone over your review with our staff, and hopefully we can make it all up to you on your next visit!
Good selections of beer and food. Meatbslls were super. Ceasar salad with steak was delicious. Creme brulet was excellent.
We're thrilled that you enjoyed your meal with us from beer to food! If you like, you can also follow us on Untappd to keep up with our ever-rotating draft selection!
So delicious and great beer selection... I had a really yummy grilled chicken watermelon mint salad and the asparagus and mushrooms egg rolls were also amazing (the sauce was so good!)
Thanks so much for leaving a review! We're happy to read that you enjoyed both our special Watermelon Mint Salad, and our staple Mushroom & Asparagus Egg Rolls! We hope that you'll be back to dine with us again soon :)
Outstanding as always.....have NEVER had a bad meal, service, or experience there ! Keep the passion for excellence.
Thank you! Our staff as a whole strives to do and be the best we can be. We'll be sure to pass along the compliments in your private message to your most recent server, and we're looking forward to your next visit!
