Yes there was a curfew, so we had to get there earlier than normal. Did this impact our experience? Not all all. We had a great meal, vibe was all you could ask for. A must do place - we will be back.

Joplins is possibly the best place to go anywhere for a perfectly done piece of steak. We go there every time we get to Wilderness and every time it is done to perfection.

We only popped in for a drink and decided on the smoothies. They are very thick and very yummy. Stag also very friendly and the decor ambiance is really nice.

Excellent T-bone, maybe on the thin side for 500g but well cooked, the chips to die for; garden salad all ingredients fresh and crispy. Partner had an excellent rib-eye prepared to perfection. Will be back again and again for the meat. One of the waiters...really friendly, the other one can work on it. A nice cosy off the beaten tract restaurantMore

We read a few reviews and decided to give Joplins a shot. It was worth it. The place is quaint, with pictures of rock legends all over the walls and a good vibe the moment you walk in. The waiters were friendly and efficient and...the menu was comprehensive .. if you’re a carnivore. If not then you can have a quiche but this is the wrong place if you are anything but a meat eater. Our group had filet, rump and rib eyes - all were thoroughly enjoyed. All the steaks arrive with an egg, chips or salad. Once the main meal was finished we received a vodka milk tart shot ...on the house. A nice touch Pricing was standard, parking was plentiful and I’d seriously recommend the Black Mountain gin! All in all a very good evening Highly recommended.More

I was a little sceptic when we arrived at Joplins at first but what a pleasant surprise. Love the vintage feel and the music. And no doubt the best Steak I ever had. Serve was Great!!

Best steak ever - lovely food and atmosphere - stayed in Wilderness for a week in February and this was definitely our best dining experience

We were in Wilderness two nights and came here on both occasions. On both occasions it was extremely busy so I would recommend booking. If you don’t want to be bothered by flies book an inside table. This restaurant only provides steaks so don’t go...unless you want a steak We had fillet on both occasions which was cooked to perfection on both occasions and melted in the mouthMore

Brilliant steaks and great selection of wine! Joplins is fantastic and well worth a visit. This was our first return visit in 3 yrs since our return to SA! We ate here on the first evening of our honeymoon and I’m pleased to say that...the ambience and food hasn’t changed at all.More
