This place is a sure bet and pleases a mixed crowd! Really like the decor and styling of this OJs in Red Deer. Service was prompt and excellent, food came out quickly. Enjoyed the Chop salad with Salmon - did have a couple bones in the fish skewer but otherwise was a good meal. Others in our party enjoyed the... More

Thank you, Emily C234. I am very pleased you enjoyed your experience. If you really enjoy a good salad I would suggest trying the Tostada salad next time. It is up there with the West Coast Chop! Have a great day and hope to see you again soon! More

Hi blincb. I am so pleased to hear you continue to enjoy your experiences at Original Joes. All those menu items are fantastic. You should try the ACE burger or the Tostada salad the next time you come in. We hope to see you soon. More

Often a very busy place in Red Deer and it is clear why. A great variety of awesome food. It's a fine place to start off an evening or just sit down for a meal. Many different items on the menu. It's a hard choice to make sometimes.

Thanks @DaveJ. We pride ourselves on quality of service. And we have recently changed our menu, and have been getting rave reviews about it. My personal favorite is the new ACE burger, or the tostada salad. Give them a try if you haven't yet! Have a great day! More

The menu is good, wings are always good. Noisy but fun, we go here monthly and are always satisfied. Cool concept and good atmosphere

Original Joes has great food but the atmosphere is a little on the loud side. It is a pub so that should be expected. The patio is great, it gets the evening sun and has heaters on a chilly night. Great friendly service and washrooms are always clean. I'll definitely visit again.

The Original Joes owner has taken a previous garage and made the building into a trendy restaraunt. The atmosphere is bright and friendly. There is a great selection on the menu of tasty choices. The service is efficient and fast.

Thank you @hewilson. Those garage doors are a big topic of conversation for many of our patrons. I hope you got to experience sitting by them while they were open. I'm happy to hear you liked the menu options and that your service was good. Hope to see you again soon! More

OJ's is one of our "go to" pubs. The serving staff seems to always be on top of there game, with very consistent food.

Our son took us out for supper, and we chose OJ's as it was close by. The service was great as always, but the food was only so-so. The chicken in my wrap was dry, and my son didn't eat much of his meal once his chicken was gone.

Seems recently we keep on finding Original Joes to eat at. ;-) We were staying in Innisfail and found the dining options scarce but Trip Advisor pointed us to a OJ's. A short drive up the highway and there we were. Parking is limited but a modestly priced municipal lot was near by. Had the most amusing incident on the... More

Hello Dave M. Thanks for the review. Your experience was out of the ordinary. Normally you would have 1 server from the start of your experience to the end. Due to the amount of traffic we had in that evening, our staff teamed up to ensure every guest had everything they needed. I hope you'll come check us out again... More
