My wife found the new cookbook written by former Utican Joey DeCuffa and decide to take me there (to his restaurant) for my birthday. We made reservations several weeks in advance for 6:00 p.m. I was surprised when the reservationist told me that for parties larger than, say, three or four, a credit card would need to secure the reservation,...

Dinner here in a Friday night is busy. Had the salmon special and the cavatelli. Servers are friendly, bar tender makes good drinks. I would suggest reservations. Service was a little slow. Appetizers and bread was tasty. Bar area is large and had big screen to watch sports. Dining in bar area.

The whole experience is great here. The bread and garlic butter make you want to just keep ordering more for dinner! The chichen franchise is personally my favorite dish here and if you like that also you won't regret it. Anyone who I bring here also loves the place. Also, if you aren't full from dinner they have dessert specials... More

Our recent dinner at Joeys was incredible. The salad was traditional with romaine, olives, tomato, with a balsamic and oil dressing. The salmon was cooked to perfection, moist and flakey, with a light crusting of crushed almonds. It was set on a wonderful rich, creamy lobster sauce. Each bite melted in my mouth. To finish the meal, carrot cake was... More

The food here is always fabulous. Pastas homemade and bread is hot with yummy oil and herbed butter. Waitress was friendly and really knowledgeable about what was on the menu. I picked the hotel so it would be close to this restaurant.

This location is next to a Howard Johnson's motel but is much classier. The downstairs is for classic Italian which we took to include better ??? since the upstairs was for casual dining. And, it was packed. Apparently it is a meeting place for older folks, also. The food was good and plentiful. I recommend it.

Well, I'll just say if you pass Joey's up It's really too bad. Everything is from made from scratch so it's pretty much fresh. And the people are fabulous here. Cheers.
