I had ate at Original Joe`s in the past I had ordered the special of the day the Irish stew. It was so disgusting no taste and the vegetables tasted old. I swore I would never go back until my husband convinced me to eat here again, as he really likes this restaurant. I tried the Fish taco`s... read more

I and a friend recently visited Original Joe's restaurant. We found the service to be exceptional. The menu had an excellent variation of food. It was well prepared and presented. I would definitely return.

Very good food but a little overpriced. Great service and good tasty food always at OJ's. I really enjoy the spinach salad with shrimp. Very tasty. Ill go back.

Ordered the Calamari, what a disappointment comes with very little calamari and a whole lot of breaded red pepper and jalapeño peppers. If I wanted nachos I would have ordered them. Pretty sad, If you like Calamari don't get them here M&M Calamari are better by far.

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.
