Very good service for large group

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... read more

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

It was totally tastey and I enjoyed the meal very much. I like the people who own and operate the restaurant and the people who work there. They are very professional and friendly. Also the meal we enjoyed there tonight. It was the special "corned beef and cabbage". It is one of my favorite meals and the meal I enjoyed... More

We recently spent 4 days on Prince Edward Island. We stumbled upon Papa Joe's by accident. We were so impressed with the food that we ate there 3 of the 4 nights. It is a casual family restaurant where the local people eat. We were glad to find a place like this rather than the tourist traps where the food... More

Good menu, locally sourced food, attentive staff, a place where the locals go. The nightly special of pork with maple smoked bacon onion jam along with roasted potatoes and green apple sauerkraut was excellent.
