“Perfect for tired Fairfield customers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My wife and I visited at 930pm after a day of driving, squabbling kids, and relatives. Very impressed by the selection of beer on tap and we shared an ahi tuna salad to finish the day fresh. Staff were very friendly, eager to please and chat, and prompt with the food. Pricey but delivers on quality so I don't mind paying for good stuff. Upbeat atmosphere but we were put in a quieter section so we could debrief the day together while we sipped our nectar. Nice job guys!

“Awesome Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We ate here 3 different times because the food and service amazing! We enjoyed absolutely everything we ordered on the menu...both food and drink.
Some of dishes we ordered: SPINACH & ARTICHOKE DIP (twice), CALAMARI FRITTO (twice), AHI TUNA TACOS, FLORENTINE RAVIOLI (twice), CLASSIC FETTUCCINI ALFREDO, BAJA FISH TACOS, HAND PRESSED BURGER, HAPPY ENDING, and MOLTEN LAVA CHOCOLATE SOUFFLÉ.
My favorites,(and that's hard to say too because everything was amazing!!) were the Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Florentine Ravioli, Fish Tacos (amazing!!) and the molten lava chocolate soufflé.

From the drink menu I sampled the REAL PEACH BELLINI which was yummy because there was real peaches in it but I'm not a Appleton jamaica rum lover so I didn't enjoy it as much as the THAI LOVER MARTINI. I ordered several of these and it's the perfect drink for sitting out in their patio on a beautiful summer night.

At Joey's they use the fresh, locally available ingredients and it makes their food amazing! You will not be disappointed.

“Food and service was disappointing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Ordered ribs for dinner. Service was very friendly but not very good. I could have overlooked this if the meal was good but it wasn't. The ribs seemed to have been precooked, then reheated and served with sauce. They were bland and dry. Yam fries were OK, Cole slaw was tasteless.

“Large menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Love, love love the lettuce wraps there. Their prices seem to be creeping up there. On par with Moxies and Milestones.
