 Hello Friends,

It’s been something, hasn’t it? An entire year living on the proverbial edge—an entire year consisting of uncertainty, heartbreak, and anxiety. We made it through the tough stuff, friends, and now it’s time to look to the future.
So, Joe Allen will reopen on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021.
Now, we may have modified hours at first. We might start with a slightly streamlined menu. There could be a slight change or two but we’ll be here, as we have been for more than 50 years, to welcome you back. The same ol’ Joe’s. 
And as we come closer to the date, we’ll have more information for you. Right now we’re focused on updating our building and improving our practices for a post-covid world. 
New York is back. Broadway is back. Joe Allen is back. Keep an eye on this space.
All of us at Joe’s

 In May, 1965, Joe Allen opened the restaurant that bears his name.

That same year, the cast of the ill-fated show "Kelly" gave Joe a poster of their show. It ran one performance, and they thought it should hang, well, somewhere. Since then, it's become a Broadway tradition for those unlucky flops to adorn our walls. Everyone remembers the hits, but we revel in the flops.

"Chorus kids with bad knees" were the first people that braved midtown's far west side way back when. Opening a restaurant west of Eighth Avenue was a gamble, but the Broadway community embraced Joe Allen's restaurant with open arms. A hamburger cost 75¢, and the most expensive ticket to a Broadway show was $7.50. A lot has changed since then, but what hasn't changed is our commitment to provide a quality experience at a reasonable price.

Our menu changes daily, although certain favorites are always available, and while the service is informal, it does not sacrifice professionalism. If you're looking for dinner before the theater, after the theater, a quick drink, or a quiet business lunch, you simply can't make a better choice.
