“Two Delicious Meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

A visiting relative wanted an Itilian restaunant, Joey's being the closest. Joey's serves up and down stairs. Upstairs is casual, with the downstairs is formal attire. We ate upstairs, where there are tables and six booths. I would recommend the booths, as they are out of people traffic and the tables have less space.

We dined twice on Baked Manicotti, Tenderlion Tips and Itilian Platter. Very generous portions at reasonable prices. With the portion sixes, we had at least two meals each to take home., All meals very tasteful. With only 2 or 3 waitresses, serving maybe a bit slow. However once the meal is served, a guest will forget aboutn the serving time.

I would say the best afternoon serving time is Monday-Firday before 5:00. Saturday at this time there is bit of a waiting line. If a booth is wanted, a guest probably should make a reservation for one, as the booths will fill up quickly.

Joey's is located just north of Carrier Circle. Plenty of parking in front and sides.

“Consistantly good Reasonably priced Classic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Never a bad meal here. It is hands down my most favorite place to eat in the area.
I ordered the chicken Franchise w/house salad. The food and service from start to finish was perfect as always. Save room for dessert!
Its all good.

“Excellent Italian upscale restaurant with a casual eating upstairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We were looking for an Italian meal, and found much more. We drove into the parking lot figuring there would be a lot of room to park as it was a Tuesday night , wrong the lot was packed with upscale vehicles and the restaurant was packed with some well dressed and a mixture of casual dressed customers. From the coat checkin, to the wine list , to the staff, to the menu ,to the food ,all was superb.
Upstairs was a family atmosphere and affordable extension of the same Joeys, the portions were humongous. And the food was to die for........ Highly recommend both.....

“Best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This restaurant was suggested by the manager of our hotel and it was just across the street. The best Italian restant we went and the price was perfect. Very friendly staff. We told our friends about this place. I would go there anytime.

“Where Italians go to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Joeys is simply the best Italian restaurant in the Syracuse, NY area for special occasions, business meals or just for a real cannoli. For a town named after one in Sicily, this is saying something.
