Unfortunately, Valley G. forgot to remove my name and put in Rita's from his copy & paste apology for Joe's, which he used after my review on another site. It's still an OK bar, prices are good, drinks are not watered down and better sizing than some other places. Still not overawed by the service, and the fact that they took down the calendar listing dates & bands is a real deterrent to us - there are some we like much better than others, but I'm not going to phone them every weekend to find out. It's an establishment that has the potential to get a much better rating from me, so I have hope.
I do disagree with Rita's assessment, though who knows when she attended and what happened. If you want to find local alcoholics and a sad, sad bar, I can point you down the road. I've only ever seen a crowd with well-behaved patrons there. They just really need better marketing and, of course my pet desire, a good happy hour!

In response to Rita D. and her opinion of this bar. My wife and friends have been in Joe's Standard on several occasions on different nights of the week over several years and have nothing but good things to say about this very well ran business. They probably have the most consistent excellent bands anywhere in the metro area and only have a two dollar cover charge. If you come in early there is no cover. The service is always excellent. The drinks are actually cheap for the mixture you get. They do not water their drinks down with mix like most bars. Their waitresses are always very attentive and actually go out of their way to get to know their customers. The owners have a zero tolerance for rowdy customers and ban them from the business if they start a fight or are vulgar. The food is actually superb for a small business. The have the biggest chicken wings I have ever eaten and the best Italian and tenderloin sandwich made from scratch. They offer reservations for tables and will actually help with birthday parties and special events, right down to preparing food for big events. As far as owner skills, obviously Kirstie has never owned or operated a business and does not respect the hard work it takes to run a very successful and safe bar type business. This bar deserves a Five Star rating at the worst. The only negative one can honestly give Joes Standard Bar is their dance floor becomes crowded on occasion and you have to wait for the next song. Oh well, if you do not like this bar you must find a new way to "get a life." As for dance and entertainment bars, there are very view that comes close to Blue Spring's favorite fun spot. Sorry if anyone is offended, but maybe if you think this bar is not one of the best in the Kansas City area you need to find different type of entertainment. Chucky Cheese is open weekly!

Joe's is a great bar, with great bands lots of fun and a safe place to gather with friends for a night of dancing. The help is always friendly and eager to please. Good drinks & food come hungry, try a tenderloin it's one of my favorites. Come join us and make the crowd even better!

This bar is for the local alcoholics. I have been there twice and both times there was a fight. The crowd is trashy and unruly. The City needs to get rid of these kinds of bars and allow only establishments with more class.

For some reason, the few times we have gone into this bar, we have been treated rudely. The owner will kind of glare at us. You'd think he would be friendly to his customers hoping for repeat business. In addition to the non friendly enviornment, it is small. There are few places to sit. They do have an occaisional band on a Fri or Sat night, but don't plan on visiting with a group of friends unless you get there very early. The room the band plays in probably only seats 35 to 50 people.

This is great place for sandwich and beer where you can unwind after a day at work. They make a great burger and fries and you can still smoke and converse.
