Lunch, So-So

Portions were plentiful. I had Chicken Marsala, which was tasty if only smothered a little much with mushroom gravy. Butter-mashed potatoes seemed to be instant mixed with natural (a few little lumps). Asparagus tasted like asparagus with no seasoning, As far as the ambience, it was lovely... read more

We go here often. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. I recently had a retirement party there and they were very accomodating and helpful. Also love the atmosphere!

We went here for birthday brunch on a Sunday. Our waiter was Blake and he was fantastic! The food was tasty and the atmosphere was wonderful! Can't wait to go back!

I've been here several times. The food and staff are always awesome! You may need to wait a few minutes for a table but definitely worth the wait. I will definitely go back!

Normally fairly crowded, I have never had to wait more than 10-15 minutes for a table. Food is top notch and price point is good. Service is very good and waiter/waitress interaction. They are 'Johnny on the spot' to refill drinks and make sure that everything is OK. Seating is a little cramped but the place is clean and the... More

Love eating here. Great atmosphere! Piano player there doing his thing, excellent food, very reasonably priced! I haven't eaten anything I didn't love yet. Lasagna better than mom's!

I've ate here since the late 1980's. My parents still live nearby so when I visited them today we decided to go to Papa Joe. My parents said there was new ownership, but the only change I could discern was the fact the heavy curtains over the windows were now gone and you could see outside. We were escorted to... More

I see the remarks about the new ownership of this restaurant and have to say there was a brief time I would have agreed with them. But the last 3-4 times I have eaten here, it has been back to the previous high standards. In fact, the wonderful spaghetti sauce they have always had seemed even better and when I... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and more recently we have ordered carry out. Very recently we decided to order carry out once again and discovered that this restaurant was under new ownership and management. We ordered the exact same dinners that we had ordered previously, but our new young order taker didn’t appear to be very familiar... More
