If you want to eat good food, away from the tourist prices, this is it.

Simply good food, good service, at a reasonable price. Papa Joe's has a large menu with everything from Scallop & Lobster Linguine to Liver & onions (tastefully done here, which is a hard feat at a lot of places). Definitely an affordable, place to return to for good food.

this is where the locals eat.some great dishes like the fish and chips ,and some near misses like the ribs and scallops.the staff could not be friendlier,and you can see the regulars are treated like family.can be a little pricy for what you get.

Always a great place to eat. They use local food, and it's always great service. We recommend this restaurant every chance we get. They also do fantastic catering!

We showed up with 9 people for Burger Love at lunch. The service was very good, the server forgot to take drink orders before meal orders but this didn't bother anyone in our party. The burger was excellent, still my favourite so far this year, fries were slightly undercooked. Good, quiet environment Good, attentive service

PEI breaks into spring with a competition among many restaurants as to who produces the best burger. It builds suspense. It builds traffic. It sells beef. All round an excellent way to break the doldrums of winter. We each had their Ciao Bella burger. What a fabulous meal! It was just enough for me, maybe a little extra than needed... More

Our group had reservations so we requested one of the more private rooms. The meals were 2 thumbs up from all of us. Five ordered the Burger Love, it was the special and didn't disappoint. The restaurant quickly filled up, they were very busy but we got our meals in good time. I am rating our young server fair only... More

I have eaten at this resturant on many frequent occaissons and always had a great experience. The reception is very friendly and makes you feel welcomed. The servers are always prompt and know the specials of the day without looking at a script. The food is always hot and plentiful. The head chef is well known for his former tenure... More

Good family restaurant, good value for the money and good service. We where there mid week and there was a good crowd for supper which is always a good sign.

Every time I go to Papa Joe's my experience is the very same. It's always super busy. I wait a little too long for the staff to take my order, but after that, the food comes quickly, it's delicious and all is well. What I really enjoy is that the food tastes homemade. It's not processed to death. The menu... More
