We go once a week for lunch,service is great and quick. My favorite is the chicken Caesar salad. Tara our server is great she brings our teas, we don't even have to order them. She just knows that's what we get to drink. The restaurant is clean and food is really good. Service is excellent.

Meal was good - the service made the dining experience uncomfortable. We came to have a few cocktails at the bar before ordering. We specified this to the waitress and thought that it was understood. Not so. She kept returning to us to ask about ordering food - which we said we were not ready. When we were ready, her... More

As owner of a pizza parlor in Wisconsin, we do cracker crust brick oven pizza. Aside from the precooked sausage this was pretty good. Nice crust, sauce was good. They put all their toppings under the cheese, which gives it a taste similar to rossaties,Milwaukee. Good job.

I was in a meeting today and we ordered in from Joe's and had the food delivered. I had the large grilled chicken salad. It was huge! I wish I had ordered the smaller version. Others in my group had the pizza special - personal size two-topping pizza, salad, and drink - or one of the other salad options.

Arrived at 530 on a Friday with family (total of 4 eaters and one baby). There were two open tables at which we were not allowed to sit as they were reserved. Had to wait about 15min for a non reserved table to open. Service was decent? Food quality was average...nothing special. We had the $23.00 pizza, bread, salad special.... More

It's worth the "trip" about 3 miles to find the downtown Effingham square and Joe's Pizza and Pasta. Good food and great service! Always a crowd but not hard to get a table. Most dishes are big enough to share and the appetizers are yummy as are the desserts! Nice place to walk around the town square before or after... More

We were late arriving to our hotel and didn't want to go out. Joe's Pizza & Pasta menu was in the hotel's room book and it offered a full service Italian food line along with salads and desserts, etc. We ordered around 7 pm and were told it would take about 45 minutes to arrive. However, the food arrived in... More

My family and I picked this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were passing through Effingham on our way to St. Louis. The service was fast and friendly, the restaurant was spacious and clean, and the pizza was good, especially if you like sweet sauces. I'm actually partial to tangy sauces, so this wasn't my favorite pizza ever, but it... More

We stayed near by and were looking for food that would deliver. The hotel suggested Joe's. We ordered a meatball sandwich. The good: the delivered. The bad: the delivery bag was filthy. Not exactly inspiring. Then we opened the sandwich and I do not know what they used but it wasn't any meat I'm familiar with: it was grey and... More
