Also the meal we enjoyed there tonight. It was the special "corned beef and cabbage". It is one of my favorite meals... read 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.

There are a couple of private dining rooms and space to accommodate large families which makes this a good alternative for big family/friend dining. The menu has a lot of choices and can be altered to accommodate special eating needs. The meals are Large and are home cooked. Good food. Don't expect it to be instant ... you will need... More

We were very disappointed with our meal, we ordered standard fare - fish n chips and a club sandwich - fries as a side was a bad idea - they were regular cut frozen fries and not at all tasty. We were put in a small room with a large table of very loud ladies - could not wait to... More

While on the island for a family visit we went to Papa Joes for a meal before we left. We were a group of 6, ages 11 - 86. Not sure what everyone had but I know my youngest had the special that included shrimp, ribs and sweet potato fries. I had bacon wrapped scollops and beef brisket. WOW!!! What... More
