I stopped in to this Verona restaurant yesterday on the way to Turning Stone for a concert. I've dined here a couple times in the past, and it's always been a place where you could expect a good meal. Last night was no exception. I ordered a surf & turf dish for only $26.00, and found it to be very... More

Easy to find because of the large bull on the corner in front. Server was attentive, but the kitchen was slow. He did tell us they were overwhelmed on a Thursday night. Save your money on the "Prime Rib", mine was full of gristle. Others with us ordered seafood which they said was delicious. We enjoyed eating in the restaurant... More

During the last month I have been at Joel's twice for lunch and once for wings and drafts.. Great experience!. Food was good and new owner has a daily lunch special! Last Thursday enjoyed wings nite and the free band. No complaints was a reasonable night out! Great place to meet up with our family! Place was hopping... Parking lot... More

I really wish I could give a review for Joel's that sent it out of the world for the new owners because I am familiar with the family and a native of the town. I don't see any changes that shouldn't have been done no matter who owned, or bought, Joel's/ now Stampede Steakhouse & Saloon. I watched the video... More

Having spent the weekend in the area we were directed to Joel's by some local folks. Wanting to venture out to a new eatery and, as a NYC restaurant owner, our party decided to take a peek at what all the hullabaloo was about. We spoke to the local residents in regard to Joel's, it's new ownership and the opinions... More

Drove to the restaurant. 30 minutes later they still had not hung up the phone. Ordered our meals and had in.... More

I visited when the restaurant had just been sold and was in transition from Joel's to the new, at that time not yet renamed or improved restaurant. The comments that follow will not reflect the new management or the improvements they hope to bring. A great many years ago I visited this restaurant when passing through, and it had a... More

Joel's has been bought out by a new owner. He is making vast improvements and lowering prices. He has also cleaned up the place and will soon be paving the old muddy parking lot. Food is great and there are many many specials. Name will soon be changed to Stampede Steak House and Grill. Come down or over you will... More

Out for a motorcycle ride, we were happy to find a place open on Memorial Day, but even happier when we stepped into this eclectically decorated restaurant. We entered through the bar area, which is dominated by the "skeleton" of an old Merry Go Round in the center, with a nice selection of seating. We ordered our lunch - Cape... More
