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

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

Great vegetarian options, great service, and always busy for a reason. The setting makes me feel like it's downtown in a big city.

My colleagues and I stopped at the Original Joe's for dinner after the conference one evening. We were greeted by a restaurant that was located in an old service station...very cool! The roll up doors were left in place, offering a view of the outside. The service was great and prompt. I had the steak sandwich, and while slightly higher... More

OJ's has a decent patio just of Red Deer main street. The patio is also heated so even if the weather cools it is still quite nice

The things we love best: we've never had a grumpy server (but we're very friendly and like attracts like), the food is consistently great, and best of all: NO CHILDREN.
