But if that's your cup of tea then this is the place for you. I went to this club with my black friends and watched in horror as the bouncers let in white girls by the dozen who were in line behind us before they let us in. I could not believe I was in 21st century London. I've heard... More

Really enjoyed the food here and the way the place is decorated. It felt like you were brought back in time. Ordered the Kitchen sink pizza which was very good. However, it was a bit overpriced for what it is. You are made to believe it is like a Chicago Style deep dish but it is not even close to... More

I've been here many times in my life and always have a great meal. The last time in, the service was over the top! We were in for lunch and told our server we had a very tight timeline as we had to get to our Bank to sign mortgage papers. I was prepared to have a quick salad and... More

Returned on a Saturday evening and could not believe how crazy busy this place was. It was hard to believe all the people coming to enjoy themselves downstairs, inside or on one... More

Out for my buds birthday. No reservation for 7 of us. Place was packed but the staff found us a booth as soon as one was available for the ladies. Our waitress busted her tail for her section and we appreciated it. The bartender poured a good strong drink and that is how they should be poured. No cheap half... More

Stopped in for lunch at Joe Kool's on a recent trip to London. Service was somewhat slow (fortunately we were not in a hurry) but the food was delicious.

Before the show at Centennial Hall, Joe Kool's is a short walk and offers a wide selection of meals at a reasonable price in a relaxed atmosphere.
