Joey's is my family's favorite restaurant. The food is the best in town. The service is friendly and very competent. When our Daughter and Son in Law visit we always take them to Joey's at their insistence. Another thing that insures great food is that it is family owned and run. They are very nice folks who take pride in... More

If you want to eat downstairs at the fine dining, make sure that you have reservations. If you forget, the upstairs casual dining seats fairly quickly. The food was excellent. The decor was great. The kitchen was a bit backed up so we had to wait longer than we would like, but the wait staff made up for it by... More

We were traveling through Syracuse, and friends recommended this restaurant. Location is great in an area with many hotels. Typical Italian American fare, nothing fancy.

Driving into the parking lot at Joey's gives one pause. The restaurant is nondescript. There is a pizza place across the parking lot called Mafia Pizza. I was having second thoughts. Joey's is in the basement of the building. Upstairs is their sister restaurant. But the atmosphere was immediately apparent and the service wonderful. My wife and I each had... More

We have stopped at Joey's MANY times on our trip from OH to NH and always find it delicious and dependable. Easily reached from EXIT 35 off of I-90...and at this interchange there are LOTS of hotels, too.

Wonderful food and a pleasant atmosphere for business lunches. I've eaten both upstairs and down (more formal). Both are staples for business meetings/meals. The chicken parm was great, as usual. Highly recommended for any nicer lunch occasion.

Food was amazing. Seating is very crowded. I couldn't get out of my seat because the woman behind me was so close there was no room.

We had a wonderful dinner. We all enjoyed our choices. Bread was good and the sundries tomato dipping oil was really good. House salad was very good. It was fresh and had chickpeas which was a nice touch. The fishes and seafood dishes were all great. Wait staff was very attentive.

If you do go to this Restaurant - BE SURE TO EAT DOWNSTAIRS - they have different Chefs downstairs as they do upstairs. The better Chef is downstairs. I do not eat upstairs at all. They make Caesar Salad for two or more rt at the table while you watch. It is probably one of the best Caesar's I have... More
