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

My husband and I rarely get the chance to go out on a date anymore. Last night we decided that with no kids around we would like to go to a pub. We looked on trip advisor and decided on Original Joe's. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious, large portions and quick. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly,...

Usually a good crowd, food has always been good. I have been probably 20 times in the last couple of years. Great staff, prices are reasonable. Big tv's in the right places for watching sports.

A colleague and I dropped by one afternoon after work to try something different from our regular watering hole. We were pleasantly surprised to have found this one. They had a good beer on tap, which was replenished just before the glass was completely empty. Wings came hot and properly seasoned, lettuce wrap was refreshing, the calamari a bit salty... More

We used to love brunches at Original Joe's in Calgary, but hadn't been in awhile. We went for brunch in Red Deer and the menu was considerably smaller. There were no vegetarian options but I remembered they used to have an amazing vegetable eggs benedict. I asked if they could do this and I got 1 tomato slice... and was... More

Hello N B. I am sorry you were not satisfied with your eggs benedict. We just recently started serving brunch at this location. Because this a new addition to our menu, we have started out small.

I have always liked Oj's, It has great food, great service and a fun atmosphere, What more do you want? The sweet potatoe fries are some of the best in Red Deer. Everyone talks about them.The restaurant isn't pretentious and I love that. Great place to go with friends or just you and your main person.

Food is tasty, atmosphere is great (noisy, but not too loud), waitresses are friendly and nice and prices are reasonable. Unfortunately, service was not the quickest. So, be patient. I was in for lunch and it took me about 1h45min from seating to paying. Way too long for a lunch. The place was a little more than half full. If... More
