JoJo's Restaurant & Tap House
I ordered the Restaurant Week special but was not pleased with the flavor blends in my beef sandwich. Perhaps if I went here again, I would order from the regular menu. The service was very slow, especially when trying to check out. Ambiance is good, if a bit noisy.
Lovely waitress. Friendly and a hard worker. It was noisy but it was pretty full.
Food was very good but I had to send my pasta back because there was pepper in it and I can’t eat spicy. The waitress apologized and was surprised it was spicy. I was looking forward to it but they substituted the beef dish and it was quite good.
We went for Frederick Restaurant Week, it was our first time and we loved it. We will definitely be back
Thanks for trying us out and we look forward to seeing you again!!!
Great food, great cocktails, great service. Restaurant week in Frederick, MD so a fixed menu was available. I had the New Zealand clams cooked in garlic followed by the Bock chow soup. My wife had the beet and goat cheese salad followed by the beef bourguignon. Food was wonderful. Our waiter, Ben, was attentive and engaging. would recommned.
Thank you for the positive review! We will let the team know about the great experience!!
It was the first night of restaurant week, so perhaps it wasn't indicative of a normal night, but I was disappointed in my Steak Frites entree. It was supposed to have chimichurri on it but what I got definitely wasn't that. It was a drizzle of some kind that went nicely with the casear salad that was paired with the steak, but I was really looking forward to the chimichurri that I'm familiar with. Brilliant green and vibrant taste. For the $26 price tag, I was a bit let down. Good ambiance overall, but a bit noisy; again, could've been the restaurant week crowd.
Thank you so much for your feedback I will relay your comments to the chef! Please come back and try one of our specials for this week!
Overall this is one of 2 restaurants I love in downtown Frederick and visit often. Visiting during restaurant week I thought it would be the same amazing food experience. Unfortunately, the beet salad had the beets missing and had to ask for them. Dessert was very bland. Main entree was the star. Wished it had been a 3 for 3. Waitress was also pretty new.
Always a treat. Great orchestration of flavors. Went for restaurant week and it was a great deal to try several courses.
Thank you so much for the awesome review!!! I will let the chef know that the experience went great! Please stop by anytime to try any of our revolving menus!
Very inviting atmosphere (at least in front room) with good, rather affordable pub-type food, some with an upscale twist. Especially good burger. Ditto chicken and andouille gumbo. Restaurant side is pleasantly quiet; bar side can be very loud. Definitely recommend.
Thank you for your kind review! Hope to see you this week to celebrate Restaurant Week!
Very nice little restaurant in downtown Frederick. Hostess staff needs a little more training for customer service - not friendly! Service and food were good!
Thank you for your compliments and feedback! We will be sure to review standards with those hosts! Thanks again and please stop by for our Restaurant Week specials!
Great experience overall. Food was delicious! Salmon was cooked perfectly with a seared outside and soft flaky inside. That paired with the Thai curry vegetables was a delight. I also ordered a side of sautéed spinach w/ garlic and it was packed with flavor. I would definitely return again if in the area.
Thank You so much great critic of our dish! I will certainly pass it along to our chef and we hope that you find your way back to us soon!
My hot turkey and Brie sandwich was not hot and the Brie was almost invisible. The fries were great!
Brunch was great
Thanks so much for the review! See you next time!
Good food but sat in the “back room”. Ambiance is so much better in the front.
Excellent spot for a pre-theater dinner, just steps away from Weinberg Center. So glad we followed other reviewers' recommendations to start with the duck bites - delicious! The shrimp and grits could have used more grits but were very tasty. The chicken chesapeake features a tender, juicy breast and accompanying crab cake. Ask for extra gravy on the side since it doesn't come with much, plus the gravy tends to blend with the remoulade.
Thanks so much for positive and detailed review! Please stop by and try our Restaurant Week offerings!
The food was exceptional, and the service was outstanding. It was a bit on the loud side, especially when a couple was face-timing with their grand kids. That was pretty annoying. I've never been disappointed at JoJo's with the food and the service. They truly aim to please. If you haven't been there, then you owe it to yourself to try it. You won't be disappointed.
Thanks Donna for such a nice review! Aside from the noise level of your neighboring party all turned out great! We appreciate your patience and business! See you next time!
Menu is very diverse. First visit was very good. Look forward to returning and continuing to try other offerings.
Food is always wonderful and service spectacular! Great variety and quality.
Thanks for the nice review!!
We’ve always enjoyed the food at Jo Jo’s. It’s a popular restaurant so be prepared for noise if you’re dining around mealtime. My favorite is the shrimp tacos though we also had a spring roll special as an appetizer that was fantastic. Some servers are better than others. Again, ours was busy but I had to ask three or four times to have my water refilled. Other than that it was fine. Fun place to people watch.
Thank you for the feedback we will continue making great food and improve on are service. Please try us out next week for Restaurant Week!
It was our first time at JoJo's. Excellent atmosphere and service. My entire party loved the appetizers, drink and entrees we ordered. The fried pickels were amazing, and the shrimp and grits were the best I've ever had. Beer selection was outstanding. Can't wait to come back.
Thank you so much for your review! We will relay your feedback to the rest of the team!
JoJo's is our go-to spot when we go to Frederick - the food and service is always exceptional. This past Sunday we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday with brunch at JoJo's. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. JoJo's has a large brunch menu with something for everyone, as well as specials. From the "specials" menu I tried the Asian Shrimp Omelette which was truly phenomenal, and our daughter had the banana pancakes, which she loved. My husband selected the breakfast burrito from the regular menu and said it was definitely one of the best he's had. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and our server, Cody was - as always - attentive and courteous.
WOW! That was a great review! Thanks so much we will certainly let the staff know your comments and recognize Cody for his ongoing great service! Thanks again and see you soon!
Service was great and food was phenomenal !
Thanks so much for the great review!!! Please stop by for special menu offerings for Restaurant Week!
I love the menu at Jojo’s, there is something for everyone and that staff are friendly and welcoming. Always excellent service and the food is delicious and fresh.
Thank you for your great review! I will share you comments with the staff! See you next time!
Dined on 2/15. As soon as we opened the door we were greeted by friendly and inviting staff. I highly recommend the Duck bites app. The burgers are amazing.
It took a little while for a server to come to our table initially but after that, service was great. The food was wonderful. We will return.
My boyfriend and I went for a late dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The chef had a prepared menu for the holiday, the special menu was a bit pricey but the portions were very large and had high quality cuts of meat. Our food came extremely fast despite the restaurant being full.
Thank you for such a great review! Valentines day is one of our busiest holidays and we are so happy that you chose us to celebrate with! Please come back and see us soon!
Amazing food and cocktails! Best valentines dinner ever !
Wow! Thank you for a great review! We are so happy we could share Valentine's day with you and yours! See you soon!
We love this place and go there several times a year. The bar is well stocked and all of the staff are extremely professional and curteous. We especially love their very creative specials.
Thank you David for a great review! Our chefs put a lot into coming up with great specials everyday and this review will brighten their days! Thanks again and see you soon!
Was there for Valentines Day dinner. They did a very good job for being so busy.
We have eaten here many times and have always had very good food. Unfortunately this time one of our meals was delivered to the table warm at best. The manager returned to the table with an apology and a hot meal, which was delicious. I have to add that it was Valentine’s Day and they were extremely busy.
Thank you for your feedback! We are so happy that we corrected your meal and that our manager apologized. Please come by and try us for Restaurant Week!
This restaurant is in the heart of Frederick, the restaurant is gorgeous inside and out. The service was perfect, the staff were polite, and attentive. I got steak frites and it was perfection. The food is priced well for the location.
Thank you!! We know there are a lot of beautiful restaurants in downtown Frederick with great food and we sure are happy that you chose to dine with us! We hope to have you back again soon, cheers!
Food was good, but nothing majorly to write home about. It was very loud and we were seated by the door and it was cold. The server was not very attentive and seemed to not be in the best mood. Would go back, but not my first choice. There are other better places for the money.
We appreciate your feedback and hope that you'll be back again give us another try. We're sorry to read that your experience wasn't 5 star, as that is always our goal, but do hope to make it up to you on a future visit.
Always a nice place to pop into for lunch or dinner ESPECIALLY on Monday when many Downtown eateries are closed. Good food and the experienced wait staff is exceptional.
We appreciate you're review! Thanks for making us your go-to Monday lunch spot.
wonderful as always. never fails to amaze Chef Ben did a great job on the gumbo ,some of the best ever thanks to everyone can't wait for the next time .
Thank you! We'll definitely pass along your compliments to Chef Ben and the rest of our staff :)
We have always enjoyed our meals at JoJo's. This was no exception. Everything was prepared perfectly. I had the scallops and risotto. Scallops aren't an easy dish to cook just right, but this one was done to perfection. The service was excellent. Our server was Kell, and I'd love to have her again!
Thanks for dining with us, and for leaving a review. We'll be happy to pass along your compliments to Kel and our kitchen staff :) We hope to have you back again soon!
This was our first time here and it was really a great experience. The food was great and they were able to accommodate a bunch of my weird food things, so that was really helpful! It was a bit loud, but it always is at brunch. Overall I would totally go back and we all liked our food.
Thanks for brunching with us. We have a from scratch kitchen and are happy to have been able to accommodate all of your weird food things :) We hope to have you back again soon!
Excellent, as always
We like Jo Jo's and have eaten there several times. I ordered the fish and chips. The chips were fine but the fish was almost a bit overdone. Still, I like their beer selection. The wine list is a bit limited but adequate for the venue. We will go back.
We appreciate your review! We'll pass along your review to our kitchen staff, and we hope that you'll be in to dine with us again in the future :)
Great location, atmosphere, service, and food. Large menu features many interesting options accommodating most diets, all perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. Not overpriced, but certainly not inexpensive, so look for coupons.
Thanks so much for the fantastic review! We'll make sure that our staff will see this and we hope to have you back again soon!
