We love OJ's fish tacos. I think they are the tastiest that we have had anywhere. We like to go during the summer so we can sit outside on their deck. Sometimes it is a title noisy inside. Just showing our ages. LOL

It's a great place to gather with friend to have a nacho or a way more elaborate meal. Beer is great, staff is warm and it feels good to be there.

I meet here regularly with associates. The menu is interesting, food delicious, service very personable. My only gripe, and a minor one at that, is because this is a bar the atmosphere is on the loud side when busy. Prices are comparable to other pub style restaurants but the meal quality is a step above.

Original Joes remains a favorite haunt for me. Though service times have varied over the years, I found it lacking this last time around. The food though remains satisfying. I finally ordered the fish tacos and thoroughly enjoyed them and the ale. Very good but not excellent due to service staff seeming relatively uncaring and disengaged.

I am new to Airdrie and was very excited to see my favourite restaurant in town. I have been there a few times and had pleasant dining experiences, but my last one left much to be desired. On this occasion, I ordered my usual dish, pulled pork and fries on the side. The sandwich received was not hot and rather... More

I have lived in Airdrie for over 20 years. I spent 39 years 70 days in the Army. The food is outstanding, the service 2nd to none. OJ has done everything to be part of the community. All the staff are great, I have two army buddies from the Uk(that would be England) who come on a regular trips. Two... More

Good spot to watch the game. Restaurant during the day, bar at night. Can be a bit loud, but service is always friendly.

Won a $50 gift certificate and took two friends with me. What a pleasant surprise to walk into such a nice open clean place, and be greeted in a friendly manner. Service was great, food was awesome, and more than enough to satisfy the hungriest appetite. Definitely is a place to try out for lunch. We ordered 3 different lunch... More

The service is friendly, but the food made myself and two friends sick - and we all ordered different things.
