we often go there as a couple because there is always something that appeals to us on the menu. The food is good and consistent. We haven't had a bad meal there ever. When we say 'want to go somewhere tonight? ' more often than not its OJ. The staff are friendly and service is quite good. There can be... More

Food is good and the atmosphere is nice I like it a little better than other pubs because it's not always insanely loud in there you can actually have a conversation with people and not have to be shouting. The girls who work there for the most part and great super friendly and do their best to keep you happy.

The service is always great. The servers are always willing to help with special requests. If you are going on a Friday at lunch you better go early as it fills up quickly. The prices for meals is great.

Came here with grandparents. The food was ok, but pricey for what we got. I had the Kale and Quinoa salad and it was quite good, but, for $13.50 it could have been larger. Washed my hands in cold water... really!??! The plus was our waitress... she was quite good.

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review Marty. That particular salad is off of our winter feature menu, as such we are always happy for feedback. This helps us know where we need to improve with future menus. So glad to hear your server made your experience enjoyable! More

Planned a night out with our Women's soccer team for a meal and drinks. O.J's does NOT take reservations and it was difficult to seat us in a group. Aprox15 people were present and after a long wait and players trying to get 2 booths together the staff were able to seat us in the back part of the building.... More

Hi Deb, I am so sorry to hear you had a difficult experience back in February! Since then, policies have changed and we do take reservations for groups of 8 or more. I apologize that your server was over run that night and did not provide excellent service. We strive to give our guests outstanding service whether they are in... More

The menu offers a wide selection of food. The serving size is large. You get to select 2 sides with nearly every meal. The sides include various salads, vegetables and potatoes cooked in various fashions. The prices average from $12-$17.

This restaurant/pub has a very varied menu. I have dinned there several times and have never had a bad experience. The service is always good and their ceasars are great. My favourites are Beef Dip which is huge and the fish and chips that are in house battered. All in all a very good choice for lunch or dinner. Prices... More
