Description: Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Join us for our new Happy Hour Menu: EVERYDAY from 3pm to 6pm ALL DAY TUESDAY... KIDS EAT FREE-Every Monday. AUGURI!

Every time I am in the area I eat there...love it. We lost to fire this January a week after being there. We are hoping they get it ready for November or Jan 2015. Anything and everything I have had there is great. My favorite the Eggplant Rolletini.

Very good place to eat. Burned down now, but rebuilding this year. He is doing a lot for his employees so, for no other reason than that, I would do this place again.

Its not very often you see a business that makes their employees and customers "FAMILY". This is one of those places. I know they will rebuild & be even better than before the fire. Can't wait for Papa Joe's grand reopening!!!

Since we live right down the street I always saw it crowded every night. The owners are genuine and caring people. We held my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner there and... More

We've been here before and it's a lovely local joint but driving by today we noticed it was completely burnt down! A local news report says the owner will have it up and running again in no time...we hope so!

After a day of golf, we were ready for a nice meal. Since it was Monday, not many restaurants were open. Papa Joe's was recommended to us by a shop owner. As we pulled in the parking lot, we were pleased with the ambiance of the restaurant. Since we got there early, we were seated immediately, but by the end... More
