Bridal Shower Group Dining Options


So, you’ve been tasked with throwing a bridal shower for a friend or family member? Does the thought of preparing the guest list, cooking the food, and decorating your house stress you out just a little? Joe’s American Bar and Grill has the perfect solution for you that the bride and her guests will love.

The Perfect Party Location

Joe’s has been serving classic American cuisine in a family-friendly atmosphere for over 30 years. We have all the comfort food you crave, made only with the freshest ingredients you can find. Each of our six locations features private and semi-private group dining spaces that can accommodate small showers of 10 to 20 to large showers up to 400. They are all located in the New England area, so check our website to find out which one is nearest to you.

Food for Everyone

From our famous New England Clam Chowder to our Joe’s Mac and Five Cheese, our menu is complete with all your favorites. Every guest will get to choose the foods they love at either brunch, lunch, or dinner. Let the bride look at our online menus and choose her favorite meal of the day.

Brunch times vary according to location, but each entrée comes with a brunch cocktail (Mimosa, Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, or sparkling wine) and muffins. Lunch is available until 4:00 pm, serving delicious soups, salads, and signature sandwiches. Our Ultimate BLT, made with Cajun maple-glazed bacon, is a crowd favorite and pairs well with a cup of our Classic Chili. The dinner menu expands on the lunch menu by adding steak, rib, and seafood options. No matter what everyone orders, we always start each meal with our peasant loaf, because we believe breaking bread together is vital to each meal.

Serve Reception Style

Individual ordering can be hard if you have more than 20 guests. While you want everyone to pick foods they will love, it may be more practical to choose our Reception Package. For a limited time, our staff will serve eight hors d’oeuvres of your choice butler-style. This gives the bride a chance to mingle with the crowd, while also constantly being fed some of her favorite dishes. Options will differ at each of our locations, so make sure to ask your event coordinator what is available to you.

Joe’s extensive menu combined with our accessibility and comforting atmosphere, truly makes it a great place to host a bridal shower this summer. We recommend you have a meal with us before planning your party, and “Get to Know Joes.”
