Our son wanted to take his dad out for Veterans Day a little early so we went the day before as we had not tried the new Happy Joes. The food was good however the server did not seem to know the menu. It is more a sports bar now than the family fun place it use to be known... read more

My husband and I ate here on nye when we stayed over night here. We loved it so we drove 50 mins to eat here a couple days later. It was around 7pm on a Tuesday and it was not busy at all, pretty dead actually. We had our baby with us and waiting 10 mins and no one approached... More

I really enjoy the updated location and look. They have more than 30 tv's trying to rival BWW for your game watching enjoyment. The pizza is good, they have an extensive beer list and the kids love the soft serve bar.

Happy Joe's Pizza has built a new building in town across from where it was located and it is exceptional. It has a new menu and with the same great food but more options! It has a fresh look and is much quieter than the other restaurant was yet it is still a fun place to take the family. My... More

We had Sunday lunch at the new Joe's Grill with high hopes which were dashed. We each tried sandwiches, none had very much meat on them. The rueben had more kraut than corned beef or cheese. The Italian beef was very average and grilled beef which is just wrong for an Italian beef. The kitchen was out of pulled pork... More

Our order was incorrect and I found a large hair mixed in with the cheese on top of our pizza. Never again will this establishment get our business. Over priced and horrible service. Get it together Happy Joes

Grew up in Galesburg and visit often now that we live in Florida. Happy Joes was always a fun time and great food. The last visit we got to try the new restaurant and revised menu. The buffet was so disappointing. No more salad bar, they have to make it for you and bring it to the table. Not nearly... More

Happy Joe's Pizza & Ice Cream Parlor is not the same. They are now a Pizza & Grille. They offer more than just pizza's now. They now are competing against the Applebee's and Red Robins. I've been there a coupe of times sine they've built their new store. The pizza's are the same. The burgers are good. They "brand" their... More

This is a review of the new location for the Galesburg Happy Joe's (1727 N. Henderson Street, Galesburg, Illinois, 61401). The new location is bigger and nicer than the old location and the pizza is still great. (It also has a separate bar area where you can get drinks and watch sports on TV.) There are also TV's all around... More

We had dinner at the new Happy Joe's location last Saturday. What a nice establishment! The Pizza was as good as before, but the ambiance has greatly improved! The menu has expanded, too, with a good selection of craft beers. Our server was attentive & knowledgeable & helpful, especially as happy hour was about to expire! We will be back!
