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. Varying menu specials are presented daily, and with a little something for everyone, we invite you to stop by anytime!

The food and service were very good. The sound level was very uncomfortable. A very loud group sat next to us and that, along with the reverberating sound in the room, came close to ruining our experience.
We will only return if we can be seated in a quiet room.

I am a regular patron at Jo-Jo’s and eat there a few times a month. I by chance reconnected with a lost friend from 25 years ago and we met there for dinner. We ate upstairs in the dining room. Very nice. Service and food, as always were outstanding. Started with Crab Dip. He had a Burger. He’s very picky about the temp on his burger and he like them pretty rare. He was impressed on how the kitchen got it right and how he finds it difficult to find any restaurant to cook his burger to his liking. Needless to say, he was very happy with his meal and I’m sure he’ll be back.

Experience was very different from previous months (even during COVID). Menu changed and isn't as upscaled as what had drawn me in before. Newer staff also didn't know menu nor adults beverages well and seemed very clumsy about taking the order and serving the wine.

During pandemic restrictions, we made reservations and were seated in the upstairs area, which looks like it is a space ordinarily for events. Tables were well-spaced, but the atmosphere was lacking. This is just the compromise for the situation. I had pork belly tacos for first course and shrimp and andouille sausage pasta with Cajun cream sauce. Both were very tasty but very rich for my taste and I was very full. I had the Mule cocktail made with smoky Tenth Ward corn whiskey, and it was very interesting. My wife had the gimlet flight, and they included some really good flavors. She had the veggie burger and she rated it good, accompanied by french fries that she rated excellent. Overall, good food, good service and so-so atmosphere. This should improve as the pandemic situation gradually gets better.

Chicken and crabmeat was ordered. VERY small portion. Chicken was overcooked and tough. Brought to attention of JoJo's. Recooked chicken piece brought to table without crabmeat. Free dessert provided. Would have been better to also not charge for the overcooked chicken.

This is the first bad meal we've ever had at JoJo's. Disappointing.............there's a lot of competition out there. Back to Oscar's for their Chicken Chesapeake.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Our first experience was great - food was spot on and sever was excellent. However, our second visit was quite the opposite. Bland food and poor service. The server was very impatient with one of our party who was having trouble deciding between two dishes. When we were served our dinner, one steak order came out underdone and the server suggested that it was the customer’s fault for ordering that cut of meat. Never a good idea to suggest that the customer was at fault for a mistake by the kitchen staff. The manager made it right later but based on our experience, we probably will not be returning her another visit.
