Relaxing Family Meal

The atmosphere is nice, and the service was very good. The food was slightly above average. I got chicken marsala. The main criticism I would give it is that the sauce was WAY too salty.

Until our entree's (Eggplant parm for me, Penne and Eggplant for my wife) I was prepared to give Joe's 5-stars. The service was great, although our server was in a bit of a rush to remove our salad and bread plates, and the owner stopped by to greet us and offer more of the wonderful hot bread that was fresh...

Super character. The proprietor is generally there and if its not on the menu he will have it made for you. The hostess, Christine, is always ready to accommodate any of your wishes. Great food at reasonable prices!!

Three of us went for a later dinner on a Saturday night. There was practically no one in the place. The waiter was very attentive and the service was good. The complementary bread was warm and soft. The meals we had were good. I had the chicken parm, which came with a small dish of spaghetti with a thick sauce... More

Me and my family were a little surprised when we sat down at Joes and realized that we were the ONLY people dining on a Friday night. We all ordered tea and they all smelled rather strongly like sewer. We told the waiter who seemed surprised, but gladly offered to get us different drinks. Our food was decent, but we... More

I frequent this place because they have Karaoke four nights a week and the regulars show up..... but when you get a bottle of beer, ask for a glass because the bottom of the beer cooler must have a half inch of black slime.... the bottom of the beer bottle is covered in black slime... so much that I had...

Food and service are variable. Sometimes the lunch service is slow other days it is on time. The Italian Ribs are the best. Joe is frequently on site and this may affect the speed of service.Oft

Joe and his wife were very friendly & welcoming. The staff was helpful & polite. The food is fantastic! Everything is made fresh in house - the pasta, the sauce, the sausage- everything. Many of the menu items can be altered to suit your taste, which is great for a picky vegetarian like me. We ordered the veggie lasagna, the... More

Positives - very friendly atmosphere, karaoke is a bit corny but the guy running it was very friendly and chatty, bread was nice Negatives - dirty walls against our booth, dirty glasses, starters were awful - stuffed banana peppers were stuffed with disgusting dog food like meat, the antipasto salad was mostly lettuce, dressing was very vinegary and the artichokes...
