A casual lunch turned into "I'm not going back to work this afternoon". It just so happened to be my birthday too. But I certainly enjoyed OJs and will always go back.

The great thing about this pub is how clean the place always looks. We have always had great service and the food is always good with reasonable prices.

It was a Friday night around nine pm when I arrived at OJ's, not sure if I was early for the evening, but I had no problem finding a place to sit. I only stopped for one drink and a plate of poutine, of which I enjoyed both. The waitress was nice, and took the time to talk to us... More

Hadn't been back for a little while but we're glad we did. They have a new (to us) special on Wednesdays (after 2 I think) - $2.00 Tacos and the usual tap beer specials. Great Price - and the tacos were terrific - we tried them all! spicy beef, pulled pork and chicken. So good we'll certainly be back. And... More

OJs restaurant is located in downtown Red Deer, in a nicely refinished auto garage. Very cool surroundings, and on a hot summer day, the big garage doors get rolled up to allow a patio feeling. The menu is great, and perfectly priced. A selection of local beers are on tap. You get two sides with your meals, pick the Caesar... More

Went for dinner with some buddies. The food was great and the service was decent but had to park my truck two blocks away and it cost me a small fortune. Would definitely return just hoping the parking is better next time.

One of our favorite eat-outs in Red Deer. We are Vegans but we have found plenty of delicious dishes to choose from. We have a favorite place to sit in the restaurant - can you guess where that might be?

Thank you very much. We really strive to make sure all of our patrons can be accommodated. Id like to guess that your favorite spot is our booth by the window... only because that is my favorite spot. Thank you for the positive review, and we look forward to your next visit.

I like spicy food, and Original Joe's has a great selection to choose from. My main problem is getting past the starters menu as they have too many good choices. Actually, just going in for appetizers would be a great plan...a little of this...a little of that...and maybe some of this too. Mussels, french onion soup, calamari and butter chicken... More

Hi 901KarenG. Thank you for taking the time to review us. I totally agree with you about all of our items in the start and share portion of the menu. Next time you come in if you are still hungry after the appetizer you should give the A.C.E. burger a go. It's one of my favorites. More
