I wanted to take my husband to Joey's because he has never been. We stopped for lunch. We were both equally unhappy with the quantity and felt it was over priced. We left hungry and spent $50.

my husband, my sister and I went out for dinner Saturday night.I ordered the roast chicken. The chicken was dry and the rice was salt. My husband ordered the 12oz steak. Very dry and no flavour. My sister had the lobster melt. That was really good. The server kept playing with her hair.. Playing with her hair and then giving out the silverware. I had to ask her for new silverware. She didn't understand why? She didn't come around with refills on coffee. I had to ask for that.

Went here on a Friday night with a girlfriend. Went into lounge because it was very busy and the wait was long. It was loud and busy but that's expected for a friday and a lounge. All the free tables were dirty because the girls were busy but we were served quickly and table was wiped down. Food was only OK. A little expensive I found for what you get. Drinks are crazy expensive. I don't think I will be going back. Nothing special about this place.

Hi JenniferC,

I think you may be thinking of the wrong Joey's. Our Macleod Trail restaurant does not have a lounge nre does it have Crazy expensive drinks.

We take our family here every 3 months or so. We class this as fast food, and as such, don't expect much in return, from avoidance of preparing our own meal...sometimes fish a little oily, but I would disagree with other reviewer. We head there on a weekend night, and we eat for quite a reasonable price. Occasional Groupons assist in this regard also...

Can't wait until you try our new menu and our varied flavours. A little history - when we switched to liquid canola oil in 2004, we found that our fish & chips became slightly more oily simply because liquid canola doesn't solidify as it cools like solid shortening. We found the benefits far outweighed being a little more oily in the end.
