Where you can converse and hear at the same time amidst old world graciousness and hearty comfort foods
Uptown Joe's prices strike me on the whole as not bargain-basement despite the restaurant's folksy name. Neither are they through the roof, especially considering the ambiance, although the desserts did leaving me wondering. The chocolate mousse cake ($7.75) was light as whipped cream and not much else, while the apple pie ($7.50, with a pat of vanilla ice cream) was almost too hot to eat in spots despite a creditable crust. In a word: middling.
