Southern Hospitality, Meet JOEY Uptown

JOEY Puts Roots Down South

Relish the taste of southern hospitality in its finest form at JOEY’s 30th location, our newest location in Houston, Texas is NOW OPEN. Boasting 10,288 square feet of modern dining—with nearly 2,000 square feet being our warm and lively patio—this is one of our largest locations.

"We’re thrilled to expand down South with the addition of JOEY Uptown to our collection of restaurants. Texas and JOEY hospitality go hand-in-hand and we’re honoured to be a part of this restaurant community."
- Layne Krienke, President of the JOEY Restaurant Group

The Patio

Feel yourself instantly relax in our contemporary dining room with its open kitchen concept, natural wood finishings, and custom wine wall. Sip on a cold drink at the temperature controlled patio bar that boasts tons of green space thanks to the retractable roof overhead. JOEY Uptown’s menu of globally-inspired dishes fit Houston’s iconic food scene like a glove.


The Interior

As you gaze around the expansive dining room you’ll be captivated by the art and design elements imbued throughout—with a large scale Bocci light installation commanding the attention of the entire space. The walls hold artwork from Texas-based artist Jon Flaming, whose stylized prints bring the dining room to life. Alongside Flaming’s work are animated portraits by Julian Opie that allow lightness to permeate throughout the entire restaurant.



Chris Mills, Executive Chef at JOEY, has handpicked a team of award winning chefs to bring a globally-inspired menu to Houston’s incredible cuisine scene. Enjoy JOEY fan favorites, like our elevated Roasted Corn Guacamole with crumbled feta and cherry tomatoes or our decadent Steak and Crispy Mash. Craving something umami? Our Seared Salmon Sushi is the perfect light bite for a warm day.
