Good place to take kids

Stopped for dinner on a day trip to New Ulm. Nice place to take the kids - there were a few games to make it fun, but not so many that it's a fight to get them to leave. The food was decent. I can't say I would come here with a group of adult friends, but I may consider... read more

Happy Joe's is an excellent place to have a family get-to-gether. Especially noteworthy is the arcade with prizes for the kids and a special secction for birthday parties.

Hi - we needed a gluten free pizza and were happy with the one we got from Happy Joe's. Staff was super friendly even though we came in right before closing - they didn't seem to mind a "special order". Good laid back place for families - lots of games, casual atmosphere. Yummy ice cream too!

After seeing an ad and viewing the website I expected a more relaxing place. Great for kids though. Had the buffet - it was nothing special. Pizza was okay. Wouldn't go again. Staff was very nice.

For a pizza joint with an arcade full of screaming, out of control, parentally unsupervised children - the food's not half bad.

The service was slow, and the food was okay. The cook actually came out and found the Wild game on TV for us, which was very nice, but the waitress was preoccupied with some boys who came in.

If you are looking for a Great Buffet... This is it! Pizza, Chicken, Dessert, and Salad Bar all included. Food is always good and restaurant is very clean. Don't see your favorite pizza on the buffet? No problem, just request it and they will make it for you. A great place to eat in New Ulm!

Happy Joe's is a great place for a family gathering. Games and ice cream to keep the kiddies occupied and great pizza for the moms and dads. Monday and Tuesday night buffets are great--complete with fried chicken, pizza, and other goodies.
