Papa Joe's is a family restaurant, a few nice decorative touches but nothing fancy. We tried their Porktoberfest special (a burger with every kind of pork you can imagine, including bacon). Deeeelicious! Good homecookin, but with a chef involved so the food is superb but tasty, bountiful and attractive to the genteel diner as well as the telephone lineman, and... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. Good lively atmosphere and very busy which is always a good sign. It was not however that busy that service was slow as can be found in a number of places. Good service and good food well served.

The meals are both delicious to the taste and delightful to the eye. The chef is consistent and the servers are concerned and friendly!

The staff are extremely pleasant. We had fried liver which I found to be over cooked and tough. The bacon/potato soup was too salty and the lobster meat in the lobster burger was quite tasteless. A pleasant place with mediocre food.

Went to this restaurant not expecting much. The service was really good and friendly. But we felt that the food was really basic and nothing to write home about.

It was a busy place so thought it would be great for lunch. The menu was very small and I'm picky so I just had a Caesar salad with chicken. Which I am okay with However, my chicken was cold... Taken from the fridge and sliced. I prefer mine warmed up so I didn't feel it was worth $15. My... More

Their first year they won Burger Love with their burger The Goddess. It's been years since I had it, but if I could have it again, I would in a... More

Guaranteed great food and service at fair prices. They use local, fresh ingredients. We eat here frequently, and I've never left disappointed.
