Unbelievable food. The best burger I have had in years. The Philly Cheese steak grinders are 14 inches long and made with rib eye steak. Awesome.

Excellent food, HUGE portions. Fantastic service. This really is one of my very favorite places to eat. I have never been disappointed. If this place was closer to home I would likely be there several times a week. Great pizza and entrees. If you are here and do not feel like an Italian meal get the burger. It is one... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. Every single meal I have ordered has been great and delicious. The pasta dishes are huge, 1 dish could feed 3 people plus it comes with a salad. The prices are very reasonable and the food is always fresh. Great place!

I had heard good things about Joey Garlic’s but this was just ridiculous. First, the service is amazing! Seriously... Top 10 all time for how attentive, knowledgeable, and just how down right sweet our server, Jackie L., was. She was crazy fast and responsive even though the place was packed to the gills. It’s like she actually likes her job.... More

Went to Joey Garlic's in August because we ate there a lot when in Connecticut and it was one place we looked forward to visiting. So my husband wanted to go there on his birthday. When we got there at the lunch hour, it wasn't crowded as usual, but we didn't think much of it as we just wanted the... More

The food was wonderful as usual. The portions were huge. We went on a Wed night, the restaurant was not full but the hostess took an instant dislike to my daughter (age 21) and myself. She promptly sat us at the worst table in place, dropped the menu and silverware on the table and snapped enjoy. Wow. When the waitress... More

Very good food. HUGE portions. Can be very busy but service is quick. Bartender Joey is fantastic. Sharing of their huge dishes is allowed for a small upcharge but you end up each getting a house salad which makes up for the small upcharge. Pizza is brick oven style with thin, crispy crust. Very good. Never had a bad meal... More

Went to Joey Garlic's with friends for dinner. The pasta dishes are always fab as are the huge, fresh salads. But my favorite is a hybrid pizza cross called the Quesadicha. Delish❣the restaurant is always busy and family friendly.
