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

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

Food looked and tasted somewhat bland on multiple visits. Not bad enough to stop me from going (saved me from cooking) but not what I would expect from a well-established, family restaurant.

The food was good if you want a comfort meal. It is nicely cooked and tasty. The atmosphere is plain but the service is great. Come here if you want a good satisfying home cooked meal.

The service left a lot to be desired - although I entered before 3 other tables they were served first. I had a salad with cold chicken breast - not sure what took so long. They did have GF clearly identified on the menu. Some interesting choices on the menu. I thought I would try it as it seemed busy... More

We are locals and have eaten there for years, we tolerated the poor chairs and decor because the food was very well presented and delicious. We were south for the winter and last night we noticed a big change, the presentattion was just ok, the food was not as good and seemed very precooked and basic, nothing like before, the... More
