Stayed nearby and saw this restaurant and I was craving some good pasta. I arrived at 5 pm when the restaurant opened; it was a Saturday. On the walls there were a lot of famous people that have dinned there. I quickly thought about the BonJovi song "Joey" and wondered if this is the guy he was writing about? I... More

We've dined at Joey's several times and had excellent meals. Tonight it was a bit off. The food was delicious as always but our waiter was a bit slow. Used plates and glasses stacked up several times before he came by to clear. We asked another server to help twice to clear items that should have already been picked up--there... More

I visited Joey's this week for a business dinner. We are downstairs. Excellent. Calamari "steak" and stuffed mushroom appetizer packed with flavor. Veal chop pizzaioli, fantastic. Would highly recommend for food. Dining room was packed with tables and people. Hot and loud in the dining room.

Family recently visited Joey’s Classic restaurant downstairs at the Thompson Road location in East Syracuse. This is not my first visit to Joey’s, a local mainstay. All I can say is, never disappointed. If you want traditional, well prepared Italian food, you should really plan on visiting Joey’s if you are in the Syracuse area. Located adjacent to Thruway exit... More

My husband and I dined here last night in the "classic" downstairs dining room. The waitress was excellent,the menu had a wide variety. We had calamari salad and shrimp scampi appetizers both were good. The shrimp came in a red sauce. My husband had shrimp scampi & I had chicken Francesco. Both meals very good. Service was fast but not... More

I'm currently on a business trip with a colleague and the hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. We decided to take his advice...however the food was mediocre. I had the manicotti with sausage. It was full of cheese, sauce and no flavor but better than eating Wendy's.

Ate upstairs in casual area. Ordered chicken fingers as a quick appetizer. Received frozen pre-breaded type strips that had been microwaved until tough. Food was ok but could use some improvement in freshness, flavor and overall quality. Not horrible for the price but a few small changes could really make this food memorable. Some redecoration upstairs would be great as... More

Perfect for business lunches! Dining downstairs is delightful, non pushy staff and the food is to die for. The restaurant is aware that business is being conducted and is very mindful of that.
