Opened in August of 2012, JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House quickly became a staple in Downtown Frederick. JoJo’s offers a unique new-American style dining experience with both a casual dining room and cozy tap house. Our menu features 26 rotating beers on tap, and a full bar with an excellent selection of wine, whiskey, and craft cocktails. A private dining area is also available for those looking to host special events such as rehearsal dinners and business luncheons.
JoJo’s hosts a fantastic happy hour in the tap house 7 days a week. Varying menu specials are presented daily, and with a little something for everyone, we invite you to stop by anytime!

Delicious dinner and great beers. Friendly, relaxed, competent service. Very quiet. The pork spring roles, garlic steak salad, and blue cheese burger were all exceptional.

As always, the food and service were fantastic. The server’s suggestion of the Tap House Meatballs was delicious. We also finally got our son to try tomato soup (via the Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese) and loved it!

We had a wonderful meal on New Year’s Eve with family and the experience couldn’t have been better. We arrived early for our reservation but they were still able to seat us immediately. The wait staff was friendly and attentive and the food, from appetizers (best pickle chips ever!) through the entrees was excellent. Add in their solid list of cocktails and you have a great night out for dinner. We’ll certainly be going back.

Not my first time at Jo Jo's but again amazing! The veggie Ramen was remarkable and the tofu in the soup was the best tofu I've ever had (yes some of us get excited about tofu). The service was great and will look forward to returning to dine again.
Thank you all for great food and a wonderful experience - highly recommend!

This place was amazing! Everything we had to eat was so good. We did have to both get crab dishes since we were in Maryland, and it did not disappoint! We also got some of the mushroom and asparagus spring rolls, which were amazing. Our waitress was super sweet also. It was a great experience all around. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The server even wrote the name of the restaurant, date, and what was being boxed up on the to-go box. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I wrote a note on my reservation that asked for cute compliments and one liners I could say to win over this absolute fox of a woman I was fortunate enough to take out. Both hostesses slipped me this note full of these one liners as we approached the best, most secluded table at JoJos. The food, music, and overall ambience was amazing and my date LOVED the one liners the hostesses provided. The waitress was incredible. 10/10 best date ever and its one ill always remember. Thank you all !!!!!

Special was pretty good! My lumpia is not as tasty compare to many times I ordered it during the week. I noticed it was quite big and not cut in half and the filings is just okay. We have been a great supporter of this restaurant and maybe Sunday is not a good time to go. Sarah our server was wonderful and very personable young lady.

Met friends for lunch and ate outside. It was nice while sun was out, but got quite chilly when sun moved and our table was not near a heater. You need a heater by the end tables . Food was very good. Would go again but would need to sit near a heater.

Perfect way to spend a birthday Sunday - brunch at JoJo's!
Finally made it back to JoJo's - haven't been in several months - and we were not disappointed. While the menu selection seemed smaller compared to earlier in the year, which is understandable, the food is still spot on - no one at our table was disappointed by their selection.
A big "thank you" to our server Vanessa who made excellent recommendations and ensured we had everything we needed, with the perfectly timed occasional stop-by to make sure we were still good.
I don't typically veer from my glass of wine with a meal, but gave the Fall Sangria a try and it was well worth the change-up. I'm now trying to find that recipe!
As far as COVID compliance goes, we were impressed by what we saw in terms of the efforts by the staff to ensure protocols were followed.

App was never put in, as others had food when we order first. When asked, it was apparent she forgot to put our crab dip order in. Nothing was taken off the bill, however manager came to our table to apologize. Also, it was my GF’s birthday, made that remark when making the reservation on Open Table, yet nothing was done. My chicken Chesapeake was good, however my GF’s pasta dish looked dry and wasn’t good.

POST REVIEW: owner personally reached out to me and apologized for our dining experience on that day and comp’d meal. Perhaps additional COVID procedures caused issues and for that, I can understand. Thank you for responding to my review, I will dine at JoJo’s again.

We came especially to Frederick to eat at Jojoes. the restaurant does not disappoint. We are worried about all the small restaurants in this area and hope for their survival during Covid. We discussed plans for outdoor seating in the winter time with the maître d’. The service was excellent as always and the food was delicious.
