Good food and friendly service at Garden State Plaza

What a wonderful alternative to the Fast Food Court at GSP! Sit down, enjoy a leisurely lunch with friends. Not too busy on a Tuesday at one p.m. The wait person was very understanding when we said we were in no hurry. We enjoyed fried fish, quite good Reuben sandwich, and very good sweet... read more

I used to love this restaurant, but lately time is passing it by. Recently, the last straw was the worst service I received. First we waited for a host to seat us. Then we waited for our waitress to come over. She apologized for the delay, and things happen, so we ordered everything and asked for bread. They still do... More

4 star service 2 star overpriced food! $15 for bland calamari, really you have to be kidding me in a pub! Decent beer and overpriced wine. Not much else to say, pub food that is way overpriced. Bartenders are super friendly, the only redeeming factor.

This restaurant is located in the Garden State Plaza and used to be a fairly decent restaurant. Over the years the restaurant has developed a run down seedy look and it appears that the owners do not love their restaurant anymore. We were shopping with friends and decided to lunch at Joe's. Our friends had Caesar's salad, my wife a... More

This is a nice place for a casual meal or some snack sitting at the bar. The food is good and the servers are friendly and nice.

Of all the places to pick in the area, I would not recommend this place. Food is priced through the roof, small portioned and average taste. Have you ever paid $4.40 for a cup of soup to add to your meal? $8.00 for a small slice of pie? $14.00 for a small, tasteless chicken wrap? Burgers are $13-$17 and 6oz.... More

The food was great, the waiter who served me was very nice and very professional. The only one that was unprofessional was the tall ruddy faced waiter who sat me down. He was obviously annoyed when I asked for a table for one. When he saw that I was alone he tried to have me sit at the bar. He... More

Went there last week with my wife. We have been going there for years and always enjoyed the food and thought it was consistently good for the price. This time I was quite disappointed with the selections and the quality. Prime rib no longer available and baked potato also off the menu. Ordered the rib eye steak medium rare and... More

Joe's is the reborn of Paparazzi, located on the 2nd floor of the largest and biggest Westfield Mall in New Jersey. The menu is American diner food and drinks. Servers are all in their white shirts and jeans and speak with a southern twang. The food was quite satisfying, the Joe's american burger, the Maryland lump crab cakes and the... More
