This is my absolute favourite place to eat in Wolfville. The night was beautiful , so we chose to eat on the patio. There was live entertainment which we could hear from outside . Had a nice glass of wine and my husband enjoyed a cold beer. We were not too hungry, so we just ordered mains. I've had Joe's... More

Nicely located on the mainstreet and lots of outside seats - good. We choosed some mediterranean inspired dishes which very excellent - thanks for the rice instead of fries and the well-balanced salad. A clear "Go" if you're are tired from burgers and pizza. However , the pizza looks good too.

My husband and I went for our anniversary lunch. The service was so slow it took 20 mins just to get a glass of water. They were not busy. The patio was half full and there was no one inside! The food was ok.

Prices and services reasonable for a busy, casual eatery. Staff friendly and food tasty. Live music entertaining. Sidewalk patio an option during summer. Washroom was small and thus busy and messy. On a busy, hot day, washroom could have stood more frequent attention from staff. Generally, a positive experience and will visit again.

My husband and I were visiting Wolfville for the weekend and looking for a friendly local to enjoy a laugh, music, and a bite to eat. There's a few options lined up along Main Street but the crowd at Joes, sitting outside drew us in. The friendly staff, especially Maggie, was knowledgeable and made us feel like old friends. Mike,... More

Great dinner of chicken wrap and husband had sandwich that we both enjoyed immensely. Our waitress Megan was totally on point and knew so much about the menu. Felt very comfortable outside this evening.

We stopped in for a quick breakfast, and were not disappointed. We were the only ones there at 9:00 and were done within 20 min. The food was good, basic diner type breakfast. The waitress was friendly and helpful.

I have tried Joes so many times and it just never does it for me. It is substandard pub food, it is bland and generic. If you want a great place to hangout and have a great pub meal Paddys is much better.
