Big portions of food. Fish and chips with haddock was great. Sit back and enjoy the traffic in small town Wolfville :-)

We were trying to find a place for dinner when the skies opened up and it poured -- seemed like a good time to duck into the nearest restaurant, which happened to be Joe's. There was live music, a friendly waitress and good food. They offer a variety of choices -- from pizza to Greek to seafood.

Visited Joes to get a bite to eat when I got to town. It was busy and loud, your typical college town bar. Specials were super reasonable but my portobello mushroom sandwich with side salad instead of fries and a beer was $20. Really?

I feel the waitresses are hired based on looks and not skills and knowledge of serving. they tend to "diasapear" for long periods of time,... More

It's bright, it's busy, it provides a good range of dishes - burgers, pizza, pasta, tex-mex, fish and chips, salads, you name it. Good for groups, families, singles - just an honest-to-goodness eating house. Fine dining it ain't, but sometimes you just long for burger and fries.

We had a toddler in our group, whose meal was hummus, and she was served last after all 8 adults... Not a great way of prioritizing. The restaurant is a little run down. Food was generally good.
