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

Real home cooked food. Great flavour. While travelling it is a real treat to find home cooked meals, great service and a clean setting. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I shared a bowl of seafood chowder -really good, then shared a scallop platter served on mashed potatoes with scallops wrapped in bacon, and cooked cauliflower, broccoli and half of a red beet. A tasty roll added to the great meal.

Wednesday night is curry night at Papa Joe's and it is worth the visit. We had a tasty assorted plate that was nicely presented, hot and very satisfying.

Good home style meals, reasonably portioned and priced. Enjoyed lunch here with friends.The atmosphere was diner busy, with little privacy but the service was attentive, and, after all, we were there to eat. Can't wait to try their Indian cuisine menu on Wednesday evenings this fall.

I remember Papa Joe's as catering more to the seniors' crowd. The old menu reflected as much - liver and onions, pork chop dinner, turkey dinner, fried chicken dinner etc. Well, what a surprise we got when we ate there last night. While the decor is still in need of an update, the menu has been overhauled and is more... More
