Great weather to sit outside and enjoy a good meal. The service was great- our waitress was friendly and very attentive. Live music being played that was enjoyable although a bit loud if you are trying to have conversation-just sit further away from the musicians....More

Good food and good service. Dark decor -- Irish pub-like. Tried their fish and chips which turned out to be very good and well presented.

Went there for lunch. Constantly brushing away flies. Average fish and chips. Wife had Caeser salad. Also average. Did I mention the abundance of flies. Servers were ok. This place exists to sell alcohol. What a great meal. Not!

First visit to The Joyce. Great outdoor seating with live music, good beer selection. The food was good, we tried the fish and chips and the buffalo chicken wrap and liked both. Service was efficient and friendly.
