My wife and I decided to make a mid-afternoon stop for some gelato. It was not rich and creamy as I had expected and had a few ice crystals in it. I think I later heard that they use low-fat milk which may account for it not being creamy. The serving size was extremely small for its price. It certainly... More

I'm from the Chicago area and maybe I'm spoiled from the great pizza we have but the pizza at Jo Jo's is terrible. And how many pizzerias charge extra for carry out? Also if you want GREAT gelato in Door County, go to Double Delites in Egg Harbor.

It' simple, but simply yummy! We always stop in here for a pizza when in Door County. Even tho restaurants abound ( and none of them chain restaurants!) this is a relaxing spot with gelato! Nice place to relax after a day of exploring and shopping.

We decided to stop in when our first choice for pizza had a line out the door. We were seated immediately and served by the owners. Pizza wasn't great and it wasn't terrible; it was just...nice. The owners were friendly and attentive, and if we ever can't get seated somewhere else, it's nice to have a solid Plan B.

Visitors to Door County have many options when it comes to finding a good restaurant for lunch or dinner. We enjoy trying new places but always make a point of stopping at Joe Jo's for one of our meals. This is a low-key, friendly, family-owned place that seems to be equally popular with locals and tourists. Yes, the breadsticks are... More

Stopped in for a quick snack and loved the bread sticks! Also, the gelato is to divine and worth the stop.

Five of us ordered two pizzas. Waitress was friendly & service was prompt even though it was a busy night. Pizza is very good with just the right amount of toppings & cheese. The outstanding feature of this restaurant, however, is the gelato. We have been to Door County several times & always like to eat here.

I'm a bit a shocked at the ratings of this place. We went and order a large pizza, breadsticks, and salad. Our server took a while to get to us and they weren't very busy. The breadsticks were the best part of the meal. The pizza was thin crust (all they had) and reminded us of a frozen pizza. It... More

We were there twice, once for pizza and once for gelato. Good service both times. Pizza is thin crust, which I like, and was good (but not great). As an alternative to pizza they offer a spicy Italian beef sandwich (which we did not try). It would be nice if they offered at least one more sandwich. The restaurant is... More

Kind of a locals place for very good thin crust pizza. All they have is pizza though. Not a problem for us, we love pizza. Casual place, short on atmosphere but good food. Order the extra large size. People who served us were very nice and the open kitchen is interesting. The other pizza place in town, wild tomato, has... More
