Still going after all these years (37) but may have just been there for the final time and know I will miss the pizza, cheesesteaks, salads, etc. The decor, which at one time was exciting, is now old & dirty. The ceiling is filthy by the vents Will not return 4 this reason, sorry. Needs a good cleaning.

Wow, used to be very good, now pizza steaks are low quality. No much meat, stale rolls, no flavor, not baked as all good pizza steaks should be.

We have been favoring Vincent's in Rockledge over Joseph's because the food is much better and Vincent and his family are glad to serve you. We haven't been to Josephs in a while and thought we would give it a try. We had just arrived back from North Carolina, and I felt like having a beer with dinner, so we... More

My wrap was probably the wrong to order at this establishment. However, I can say with confidence, this is the best place to eat in the area. Its nice enough to have a business meal or bring the family. The decor is rustic and authentic. Service was very good. I will likely return.

I recently visited Joseph’s based on a recommendation from a co-worker. Don’t let the dated interior discourage you… the pizza is great! I tried the thin crust Margarita. It was baked to perfection with a great, fresh taste. I will definitely go back again for the pizza.

Good cheesesteaks with your choice of toppings on perfect rolls. Several types of cheese are available for your cheesesteak or the old standby Cheez Wiz. Pizzas are available in different sizes with different toppings. Pizzas are good but needs extra seasoning which is provided. The atmosphere is typical east coast, bright red vinyl banquets and subdued lighting. Fast friendly service.... More

I've been there twice and they stink. It's really bad. The service, the food, the whole package. Check my past reviews; I'm not a basher. This is straight up honesty. The last time I went, we went to give it a second chance. I really wanted a pizza and a beer, so we went back to Joseph's The beer we... More

We all came here to celebrate a family birthday as we have been doing here for decades. It's as good as always. The friendly staff were really accommodating to the children in the group, and the service was great for all the rest of us. too. Pizza is still as delicious as always. Great memories here, and a great place... More

Recently attended a mini-meeting in Joseph's back room. First time here. Entering, you pass the pizza kitchen on the right, a mini-bar on the left, then into the dining room. We kept going past the main dining room into a smaller rear dining room where our meeting was. Its hard to describe the ambiance of Joseph's. Dark wood, fireplace burning,... More

We usually go to Vincent's in Rockledge, but every now and then I feel like having a beer with pizza and Joseph's serves beer. My brother & Joe were classmates and that's how we started going there. That was many years ago, and Joe has since passed, but we still go every now and then.
