“Worth going back to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We've been twice and would return again. Great food, very attentive service (slowed slightly when the restaurant became really busy but not an issue for us and didn't last long), a very enjoyable evening.

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We arrived after a terrible experience at another restaurant down the street. When we walked in,we told the hostess that my husband had a gluten intolerance and asked if they could accommodate that. She quickly showed us all of the items on the menu that could be modified to make them gluten free.... And made sure to let our server know that we needed to know about gluten free options as well. Everyone was extremely knowledgable
about the menu and when they weren't sure, went and asked the kitchen to be sure. It truly saved the evening! Thanks again to the staff working that night for a great experience... The staff is obviously well trained and true service professionals.

“On the job training centre disguised as a restaurant!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

I had heard great things about Joeys so there we went. We arrived about 745 pm and although the place was only half full it took a long time to be seated and served. There were a total of five servers taking care of our table and none had it right. it was explained as "team service" but it translated into a lot of errors and omissions. The wait team acted forced and fake. My water glass was filled twice before my cocktail arrived and my steak took less time to make than my drinks The food was very good but the experience was unorganized. The bathrooms were
Dirty and under supplied . Even getting a taxi was a chore for the four young ladies standing at the hostess table.

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Stopped in for lunch with our niece and nephew, after a night at Sparking Hills. The lunch was great and the company even better. Always a friendly and outgoing staff, which makes the whole visit worthwhile

“Dinner, Drinks or Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Whether you are looking for a place to have a business lunch, a dinner with family or some evening drinks with friends Joey's is a great place to go. I recommend the drink specials on Tuesdays, they are always delicious!
