A great place to eat, just a bit loud

This is an excellent place to eat, no matter where you find it. The red deer location is right downtown, which makes it ideal for lunch or dinner. The staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. I will continue to recommend this place to my family and friends

Our group try to visit at least once a month. Love the Beef Dip1 Jess is the best waitress. The drink special we ordered wasn't available - she substituted a "non" special drink for us. She keeps us coming back.

OJ'S has the best chicken wings and your order has lots of them! We always order hot and Thai chili with an order of sweet potatoes fries the best

Have gone quite often with friends after work. A little noisy but not if you get into the little nook at the front on the left side. Good specials, both drink and food although I think they dropped 1/2 price wine on Tuesdays. Too bad. Pretty good service and very pleasant waitresses.

Consistently delicious food with great service in what used to be an automotive shop. If you've never been, DEFINITELY try the fries with dill dip. Only complaint is that during peak hours it gets super noisy and isn't ideal for a quiet conversation.

Hi Brittany G! Thank you so much for taking the time to reivew Original Joe's! I'm glad to hear you consistently receive delicious food! I am addicted to the dill dip, it's so good! I do agree it can get quite loud- one of the issues that comes with a big open space! Thanks again for your review, I hope... More
