OJ's is good whatever city you're in!

We have eaten many times at Original Joes and it has always been a good experience. In Red Deer as in other locations food and service are always consistent and you can count on a good meal for a reasonable price. The only thing missing is their Halibut off the menu that was always awesome....sorry... read more

Went on wing night and the place was packed. Only waited a couple minutes for a table and was seated by the big overhead doors. Our food took over an hour to come out of the kitchen but that's understandable with the amount of people in the restaurant. The waitress was apologetic and bought us a round of drinks which...

Lovely meal on the patio. Drinks were tasty - food was great and ample. All 3 of us too leftovers home for the next day. Love Original Joes offer of 2 sides with most meals. Too stuffed to try any desserts. Drinks and full menu dinners for the 3 of us (with leftovers) was just over $70. Service was great... More

We had not been here for a few months so stopped in for supper. The service was very slow. This was early evening and there was not a lot of people in the restaurant so it wasn't due to being busy. Their food use to be really good, this time the burger was not very good at all. All I... More

We quite enjoy the food there on occasion but it's so loud in there you cannot carry on a conversation at all. Drinks were not very good which was disappointing.

Consistently good food. Not gourmet - working class. They have good ribs, sandwiches, appitizers etc. Be aware - no minors allowed so leave the kids at home. But if you want to go where there is no baby to interrupt, well..... There are no reservations and sometimes a wait. but that's a good sign. Also good for a business meeting,... More
