Amazing!

The pizza was delicious and after a long day of driving and sight seeing, it was exactly what we needed! The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is perfect for the casual Saturday night out with the kids. We didn't feel rushed or ignored. We are definitely going back next time we are in... read more

Poor service ruled at this restaurant. Our group of 4 waited for over 15 minutes by the "Wait Here" sign without anyone greeting us. At one point, there were 8 customers waiting for seats despite several open booths and tables. Once we were seen by several staff members, we chose to sit on the benches (still within plain site, about... More

Great pizza, horrible service! Our waitress doesn't even introduce herself when she addressed us at the table just says "what can I get for you". We waited about 20-25 minutes for our pizza. (Which is fine) Sausage, pepperoni with 1/2 green olives. Waitress brings out a sausage, pepperoni half green peppers. So I explained to her how it was incorrect... More

We stopped here without reading any reviews and it was close to closing time. We couldn't have been more pleased with our meal. The service was fast, gelato excellent, and we ate our entire pizza. It was the perfect meal to cap a five hour long drive!

Great place to take the family. Pizza made fresh. We didn't try the gelato, but it looked really good! Many customers were coming in just for Gelato.

After a full day of exploring Door County, our family was craving pizza. We are originally from MO and we miss our STL pizza! We found Joe Jo's driving home and decided to stop b/c it looked promising on the outside. It was a good busy and we were seated immediately in a booth. We placed our order and I... More

Joe Jo's is in Ephraim, the last dry town in Wisconsin, so if you want a beer with your pizza you will have to do take out. They offer a wide range of topping so you can make anything from basic to crafty pizzas. The interesting thing is how they slice it. The pie is cut into small squares about... More

Whenever we are in Door County we know we will be going to Joe Jo's. The staff is so friendly and always makes us feel welcome. Most importantly...the food is delicious. The pizza is fresh and hot every time and spiced to perfection. And the gelato...OMG...super yummy. On this visit I had Peanut Buster and Mint Chocolate Chip (yes...we went... More

This is excellent thin crust pizza. Only problem with it being thin crust is you want to eat more and more, so good! We always make sure to get a pizza or 2 from Joe Jo's.

We visited in 2014 and really liked this place as a casual, pizza only place. In 2015 we have been lucky enough to have 4 interactions with Joe Jo's. Visit #1 - We were turned away at the door because they ran out of cheese. Let me repeat this, a pizza place that ran out of cheese. Piggly Wiggly is... More
