Great local restaurant! Big portions for leftovers, go with a big appetite!! Long waits but worth it. You can order out too! Great zucchini fries!

Incredible!!!!! That's all there is to say about this place. We (35people) went there for dinner after a softball tournament and they sat us and didn't make one mistake on anyone's order! The food was to die for and the service was great!! Can't wait to go there again.

Went to Joey Garlics for our Granddaughters birthday. We had been there before and couldn't wait to go back again. We were not disappointed and she loved it. The food was delicious, not overpriced and the wait staff are courteous and proficient. What could be better than that. I hope my family takes me there for my birthday.

We go to Joeys once a month and their grinders are good for at least two meals. I tried a new one, the sausage meatball parm grinder and it was fabulous.

As most people in the Hartford area, I have dined at Joey garlics more than just a few times over the years, the food used to be great, but over the past year or so I have noticed the quality of the food has deteriorated. My most recent visit was a couple of days ago, we sat at a booth... More

We love this restaurant but just have to pay attention to when we go. My husband hates waiting so we have to avoid weekend nights after 5:30pm. We usually go early or during the week to avoid a wait. It is a popular place and is usually busy. Sometimes we'll go for lunch to avoid the dinner crowd. Good food... More
