Papa Joes has wonderful and reasonably priced food. With construction a little hard to get to but worth the inconvenience. Service is excellent and great food. Bakery is wonderful and you can order any special bake goods.

The secret to finding a good restaurant is to look at the parking lot for cars with local license plates. Papa Joe's in Blowing Rock is one of those restaurants. Locals are greeted by name as they walk in the door and "strangers" don't feel like outsiders for very long. The owners are great at making everyone feel welcome. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel for good food and I found it to be terrible. The food was stale and the service was very slow. Personnel did not want to serve you if you did not order the expensive items. The pasta was pasty and the sauce was very bitter. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and I'm... More

Not only delicious breakfast with many good options, including fresh fruit, but staff could not be friendlier or more competent! Also there is a delicious bakery where you can get or order the most fantastic goodies!

Thought it was Canned food, will not return as there are too many other places to try in Boone and Blowing Rock that are better

When our favorite Blowing Rock restaurant, Knights on Main, closed, we thought our favorite daily specials -- pork chops on Tuesdays and oysters on Fridays -- also were gone. We were delighted to find these specials at Papa Joe's, along with others such as strip steak, fried chicken, catfish and flounder. We also loved their sandwiches, including the meatball and...
