Good food at a reasonable price and good service. The free popcorn left a bit to be desired but our meals were good. The waitress was friendly and our food was out in a timely manner. The menu has a lot of options to choose from.

I love the decor of this restaurant! Great history displayed! my husband loves the chicken wings. I like to try something different every visit. The selection of local craft beers is great. This restaurant isn't a chain and doesn't have a universal appearance. It is a pleasant surprise.

We have eaten at Joe's many times, and have always enjoyed the warm family atmosphere and the friendly, knowledgeable service. The menu is varied, and everyone can always find something to their taste. They seem to cater both to sports enthusiasts and family gatherings and have a lovely room at the back of the restaurant for private functions. Definitely plan... More

My partner and I went to Joe Tomato's in Owen Sound after having drove by many times and noticing it was always fairly busy. We went for dinner during the week. Waitress was very friendly and service was quick with our drinks. We ordered a spinach dip to start. It was the worst spinach dip I have ever had. Presentation... More

Just stopped in after car shopping and ordered the Reuben Sandwich. It is probably the worst Reuben that I ever ate. I could not identify the meat as beef and the small slices of stale marble rye well contained the small portion. If I was not in pleasant company I would have expressed my disappointment. Our waitress was very pleasant... More

We went here before going to a movie because of its convenience. We ordered appetizers (it was Wednesday and the promotion that night is 25% off apps) and I ordered chicken fingers and my friend ordered a chicken wrap. My friends wrap was cold, it was compared to one you could purchase in a grocery store. My food was over... More

As a family that travels a lot for swim meets, hockey tournaments, etc., we were attracted to this place because it's not a chain restaurant. There were some unique items on the menu which made it appealing. Our group of 7 enjoyed things like salads, French onion soup, potato skins, wrap sandwiches, grilled roast beef & cheddar sandwich and awesome... More

Our first experience eating at this casual roadhouse type of eatery. One of the positive features was the prompt, friendly service. The waitress took the time to explain menu options and answered our questions in a courteous, well informed manner. Another feature, that appealed to us was the fact that the menu offered locally raised, grass fed beef and bison.... More
