We stopped here for supper as it was close to home. The service was excellent! I wish I got our servers name, she was very friendly and did her job well. I really want to thank her (she said she was originally from RMH). The food was excellent, very tasty and the prices reasonable. We sat on the outdoor patio... More

We went here for lunch and had a great experience. The salad wraps with peanut noodles were tasty, and the quesadillas were delicious, paired perfectly with their house sauce and salsa with side salad! Will go back their again for sure!

We have eaten here many times and have yet to be disappointed. You seat yourself, which is nice, but I'd suggest going at 11:30 rather than wait until noon as it's very popular. The food is very tasty and good sized portions. Our meals have always come in a reasonable amount of time. Even with a number of tv's, we've... More

We used a combination of my GPS and trip advisor. My GPS had directed us to a restaurant that was no longer there. We then wandered around and found a couple restaurants, and checked out the menu's either outside or inside the restaurant or online. We then checked the ratings on Trip advisor and chose this one. When we first... More

One of the finest restaurants I have had the pleasure of attending. Food is second to none and service is awesome with lots of friendly smiles.

It was an okay experience. For me, the spinach salad was terrible, but I prefer a creamy dressing on my spinach salad... This one was a sweet vinaigrette with cranberry chunks and just grossed me out. The fries and creamy dip were good. The atmosphere was okay.... Parking is bad.

We came for lunch over a lunch break. We arrived in the restaurant just after 12, had our order in and waited. And waited, and waited, and waited. We waited for over 45 minutes. Not once did the waitress come to refresh drinks or check on us. When we finally did get her attention, we asked her to box up... More

We were in town for work. Worked a late shift on Sunday night. We got good service. It had a good atmosphere. Food was ok for a couple of us. The turkey and bacon on the Cobb didn't sit well with one. The other had fish n chips. Great portion size and fish was good, but removed batter..it was a... More

The wings are always excellent. Try the dill pickle wings tossed in hot sauce!! Staff are great, unfortunately the beer can be flat once in a while.

Our visit to Original Joe`s was for lunch March 19. My spouse had the chili lime chicken (which I sampled, and was very good) and the sirloin steak salad, which she also said was very good. I had the pulled pork sandwich (cole slaw in the sammy) with potato salad and fries on the side. Sorry to say that the... More
