I've had food from here many times, and I can 100% say that the quality of their food is never the same each time I order. Most of the time I enjoy the scottskins (which is the only reason why I am giving them 2 stars) but when I order them for delivery, they are TERRIBLE!! They lack the quality... More

Went here for lunch with my wife. The place is a typical amerian eatery. My wife had the cheesburger and I had the Falafel. Both were really good, and the burgers looked home made and the falafel was really tasty. We sat outside in the sunshine on the patio. I would go here again.

Joe's is the place to go for good, plentiful food and great entertainment on weekends. Wolville being a college town you will find Joe's to be lively place to eat...but not annoyingly so. The staff are very friendly. It has the usual pub type tables and chairs and has a slightly raised section and a bar. It is right on... More

The restaurant itself was nice and had a good atmosphere and location. We were there during peak hours so the staff seems a little distracted attempting to manage the crowd. The meal was unenjoyable (fish and chip and mozza sticks). The fish batter was chewy and the french fries were cheap frozen fries. The mozza sticks were very dry and... More

This place, by far, has the worst service imaginable. Yes, it was steady but ... I too work in a restaurant and I could never imagine leaving a table of 7, two of them kids under 5, waiting for menus for 15 minutes. Or making them wait over an hour for food that was hardly mediocre. When asked the waitress... More

Stopped in for a drink and a snack before going to a hockey game. The service was fast and the staff were friendly. As we weren't too hungry we got some scottskins to share and both were very good. The potatos are nicely seasoned and the poutine one in particular was very tasty.

every time I or my boyfriend have ordered, we have received less than satisfactory food. His burger was burnt and twice in a row his fries have been soggy. I ordered the falafel wrap and the falafels have been so over cooked that they crumbled and are dark brown all the way through.

We had a great breakfast for a great price at Joes Food Emporium. The waitress was helpful and did a wonderful job. Later we went back for lunch that was great as well.

Lunch on their terrace on 1st October was unexpected but the weather was good. Food was excellent as was the service. Inside the restaurant was busy, always a good sign.

We had the staple Seafood Chowder & it was very good. We sat on the patio & had a beer as well. It was a beautiful day.
