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

I frequent JoJo’s often. They’ve recently added the upstairs and it’s VERY sparse. Social distancing is part of it, but it’s basically just tables spaced out. Perhaps the ambiance will be improved as we come out of this pandemic. The food is excellent. I’ve never had anything I didn’t like.

We had a reservation for 2p which the restaurant reported to Open Table we were a "no show". That surprised me because at that time we were about the only diners in the place. I found the food not to be very warm. The crab bisque needed salt and pepper. The fries were mediocre and the crab cake had a lot of filler in it, which being in Maryland should really not have any. My friend really enjoyed his chicken sandwich though and our server was very attentive.

Service, food and the selection of delicious adult beverages were fantastic!! Great location as it is right in the middle of downtown Fredrick that has an array of great shops to walk to in addition to the "river" walk where we were able to see the lighted ships sponsored by different organizations. We will definitely dine here again!!

We had a wonderful dinner up stairs in their new Suite 200. It’s very cute and well spaced out. The little dining suites are very nice as well. We had a great dinner and loved the number of gluten free options available. Their crab dip and Buffalo chips were great! We will be back soon! Absolutely love JoJo’s! Keep up the good work!

I went back based on a very nice brunch experience 3 years ago. While the service and attention are top-notch, the dinner experience was not the best. Ramen soup had scant veggies (mostly broccoli, very little kale, very few carrots and red peppers and very starchy ramen noodles). The very expensive crab cake/whipped potatoes/green beans entree was sent back b/c it was all barely room temperature. Sadly, it came back slightly warmer, but not significantly. On a cold January evening, hot whipped potatoes would have been very satisfying. Service and attention was noticeably better.

We had a wonderful meal on New Year’s Eve with family and the experience couldn’t have been better. We arrived early for our reservation but they were still able to seat us immediately. The wait staff was friendly and attentive and the food, from appetizers (best pickle chips ever!) through the entrees was excellent. Add in their solid list of cocktails and you have a great night out for dinner. We’ll certainly be going back.
