I worked here briefly. Shortly after I was hired I began looking for another job. Joey's should absolutely be shut down. The kitchen is absolutely disgusting. One night a cook thought it would be funny to bring a mouse in to keep on the counter in the back. Another time the same cook baked brownies with milk of magnesium in them. When I complained to a manager she told me to stop taking everything so seriously and that it wasn't a big deal.

The bar is full of fruit flies... They crawl up inside the beer taps and die. We would have to run the beer forever just to get a glass without bugs in it. Often they would run out of dishsoap and just use water to clean the glasses. The manager refused to allow us to use the dishwasher in the kitchen because it wasn't "meant for glassware."

One waitress there is really good - I won't say her name but she's young with blonde hair - Super sweet. All the other servers are slow and inefficient. When a customer would confront them about their concerns, they would get incredibly rude. I'm not whining because I didn't like it there - People complained ALL THE TIME, depending on who was working.

The food is decent but if you don't like it... Well, your SOL. The manager refuses to take anything back unless there is something wrong with it, and your taste buds are not included. If it's a little burnt, too bad. Undercooked? They may give it back to the kitchen but you DEFINITELY don't want to eat it then. They still won't give you a discount though.

I'm concerned about the safety of people dining there... I don't know how they don't have food poisoning complaints every week... It's THAT bad.
