Avoid League night – The people that belong to the pool league are extremely rude. DO NOT come here on league night. or ever.
A not so dirty dive – I love going to Joe's on Sunday nights for karaoke. There's a good mix of people, everyone from hipsters to hillbillies, old to young. The drinks are cheap and stiff and the staff is friendly. This is a great down home feeling bar on NW 21st, where most bars can be too expensive and pretentious.
Avoid the Hot roast beef sandwich - – It's better, and cheaper to roast your own beef, make scratch mash potatoes and real gravy, then charge a little more. I'd stick to burgers or cold sandwiches next time.
Relaxed, Fun and Diverse Bar & Restaurant! – Joe's Cellar is a great place to play pool, watch sports, eat and drink!
The pool tables are in excellent condition costing $.50 a game.
The digital jukebox has a never ending selection for a great price.
Daily happy hour special: $2.00 hamburgers from 2pm - 6pm.
Tuesday special: Free tacos with purchase of a drink.
Curbside covered seating.
$3.50 draft beers include: Broken Halo IPA, Stella and more!
Overall this place is excellent especially for those on a budget. It would be a great place for regular group get togethers. The location is on 21st ave. not more than a block from expensive restaurants, bars, lounges etc. GREAT PLACE TO GET THE NIGHT STARTED!
* The only thing that would improve this place would be a remodel to improve the atmosphere.
Best "Classic" American Diner in Portland – For those looking for an old fashioned diner, you can't go wrong with Joe's in an area full of the trendy (not to mention high priced), eats. Joe's is a refreshing change. Adults can venture into the bar, but they have the cafe for anyone with kids or if you want to avoid the smoke. Happy hour is from 7-10am. With great servers & classic American diner food, the only thing is if you go in for breakfast, bring an appetite. They don't skimp on the portions.
Also they have a rare commodity in NW Portland, there are over 20 off street parking spots. As for being easy to get to , they are just off the freeway, not to mention two blocks from the streetcar.
If you are looking for a diner or bar out of your childhood, there is no better than Joe's
Mellow, comfortable dive bar – I moved across the street from Joe's a couple weeks ago, and it's pretty much become my regular hangout. Stiff, cheap drinks, great friendly barstaff, several pool tables if you're into that, a couple big-screen TVs and a diverse, lowkey blue-collar crowd. My type of people.
Greasy and Cheap! – This is the best place if your in the mood for a greasy breakfast. When I ordered my hashbrowns, the waitress asked if I wanted gravy on it. Do you even have to ask?
