Recommended this place by our host. Tucked a little out of the way but just off the main road outside of Wilderness. Started with a beer and both went for fillet steak served with a fried egg with fries. Followed the beer with a nice...bottle of Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir Rose. Staff were great and food was very good. Only downside is that the interior is very dark so difficult to read menus. Total bill came to just under £50 inc tip.More

Oh Peeps… you are in for a treat with this steak heaven. They really know their stuff… Craig the House Manager was superb!.. knowledgeable, friendly, funny and could even educate us on all the brilliant 80’s tunes chucking out during the evening. Can’t recommend this...place highly enough… the owner Aidan is the chef and he is ‘the man’! He had time to visit our table and chat.. we felt so welcome and so special… huge thanks to all the staff xxMore

Another great meal at Joplins.If you want a good steak then this is the place.The restaurant consistently produces steaks to perfection from an open grill.We had a sirloin and rib eye both cooked just how we wanted and the meat was of excellent quality.There is...a lovely rustic atmosphere in the place and even the chips are very good. Fantastic!More

The steaks are tender, the meat melts in your mouth, it's so juicy ! We had the filet and ribeye steaks and we were still talking about our experience days after visiting this restaurant. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Wilderness.

This is the second time I have visited Joplins while holidaying in the Wilderness and on both occasions I had a steak to die for. Tender, cooked to perfection and of generous proportions. Joplins (named, I assume, to honour American songwriter and singer Janis Joplin,...who is pictured on the walls along with others from her era) has a cosy, wooden ranch style feel to it. Service is efficient and friendly and I could find nothing to fault. Joplins is unpretentious. You won't find airs and graces or an extensive menu here. What you will find is a simple selection of fabulous steaks. Not to be missed for steak lovers!More

Steak was good. Options for food are limited. Not all the staff wear masks over nose (only mouth). Not the cleanest restaurant we have been in. Would not return.

Been a long time, but great to return and find Joplins still hitting the same quality levels. Perfectly cooked steak and eggs, piping hot chips, swift service and delightful atmosphere and music. Simple and uncomplicated, great prices, decent alcohol selection. Well done team!

It was our first visit to the area and we were lucky enough to have selected Joplins for dinner. What a gem! The food was fantastic, the staff warm and friendly and the atmosphere very welcoming. Great space and music. Highly recommend for meat eaters...and even a quiche as a V option.More

I went with a few friends for supper, and we were seated outside in the cold, even though it was empty inside all evening. Most ordered the same steak which came in varying sizes. Portions were small, and we were largely ignored by the 2...staff on dutyMore
